The Not Very Successful Holiday Photo Shoot

We thought it’d be fun to get a photo of Ichiro and Fiona (two of the dogs on staff here at TOM BIHN) wearing festive holiday antlers while lounging on a Camp Mat, but they had a different idea…

New To Our Crew! Meet Fiona, Pebbles, and Bella

New Canine Crew at TOM BIHN: Pebbles, Bella, and Fiona

Pebbles, Bella, and Fiona are the newest members of the canine crew here at TOM BIHN. Their profiles are also on our About Us page. Pebbles (main photo) is a 9-month-old Chihuahua. He has come to work with me every day since he was a puppy. Pebbles likes squeaky toys and stuffed toys, but his…

Remembering Lily

Remembering Lily | TOM BIHN Blog

I adopted Lily when she was two and a half years old. I chose Lily after seeing her profile on PetFinder—before I had volunteered at my local Humane Society and met many dogs, before I had developed preferences for breeds or sizes or particular canine personalities. Without any ideas of who I wanted to be my best…

Road Tripping with Dog

He’s less than sixteen inches tall, but my corgi Titus manages to get around—in fact, he’s my favorite road trip buddy. I did some quick math, and figured that over the last twelve months, we’ve logged over 9,000 miles together, all by car. We’re on the road right now, driving from our home in the Midwest…

Introducing the New Citizen Canine

The Citizen Canine Dog Treat Bag | TOM BIHN

Meet version two of the Citizen Canine: a treat bag designed to come along when you take your best friend for a walk, hike or training class. We introduced the Citizen Canine in its first incarnation in November of 2011. We’ve been kicking around improved prototypes for a couple of years now: while we all…

Meet Kasper

Meet Kasper | TOM BIHN | Skookum Dog

Some of you guys know that back in early 2014 my best friend Riley passed away. You even grouped together to write tributes to Riley, post your condolences, and share your stories of best friends lost; for that, I say a million thanks. As always, I found comfort in the outdoors. But without Riley, those…

Skookum Dog and TOM BIHN Team Up

One day, a few years back, we (the creative team at TOM BIHN) were hanging out with our dogs, as we do most of the time. It was at the beach, or on some mountain trail, as the story is now told. At some point we all looked at each other and said: “We are…

Dogs Don’t Need Stuff

Dogs Don't Need Stuff | TOM BIHN | Skookum Dog

All your dog needs to have fun is you. Sometimes you need some basic stuff: a collar with an ID tag, a leash to keep you two together on the street or in the park. And of course, carrying poop bags is part of being a good citizen. A treat/bait bag can help you be…

The Story of the Skookum Dog Bat

The Bat in these photos has been chewed on by Ichiro, Lily, Riley, and now Kasper for over a year now. It’s been snowed on, left out in the rain, dried in the sun, and otherwise not very well cared for. Other than a chomp to the ear, it’s looking pretty good. When we decided…

Skookum Dog Guest Post: Unboxing Day

A guest post by our sister company, Skookum Dog, designer and maker (in the U.S.A. of course) of dog beds, leashes, and collars.

News Briefs

The Pre-Order window for The Truck, Small + Large Zip-Top Shop Bags and Original Small Shop Bag has closed. Our factory will now begin making the pre-ordered bags. All but the Original Small Shop Bag (due to low numbers ordered) will be made available for pre-order once again in September.

We don’t have any current plans to make future production runs of The Hero’s Journey or Moveable Feast. You can sign up on their pages to be notified if/when we make more.

Three of our most popular briefcases are back in-stock: the Pilot, Cadet, and Daylight Briefcase.
