About the Shop
Shannon Barnard is Founder and Creative Designer for K9 Bytes. She lives in Eugene, Oregon with her husband, Kent and English Cocker Spaniel, Rogue.
Shannon earned a degree from the Art Institute of Seattle and then bought a computer business and learned website design. She started making dog and cat collars more than 10 years ago as a creative outlet which combined her love of pets and arts and crafts.
“It all began with a pattern for fabric dog and cat collars. I knew I had to make some. Then I created a website and they sold! I stitch these collars with love. It brings me great pleasure to share my love of dogs and cats with fun, functional products. I enjoy picking out new fabrics to make collars that allow pet parents to express their love for their pets.”
Shannon is a Professional Member of Women in the Pet Industry and has been featured in their Top Women in the Pet Industry magazine.
