Hipsters. We’ve all seen them. Maybe you live with one or maybe you are one. They are typically described as a subculture of men and women usually in their 20’s and 30’s who value independent thinking, culture, progressive politics, have an appreciation of art and indie-rock, witty banter and often hairy beards, hats and spectacles.
It’s become such a popular lifestyle these days that the attire, attitude and product selections have moved over to our dogs.

Dr.Capps created this one off fragrance to raise money for the Wildlife Volunteers Association (WILVOS). Progressive hipster politics at their finest.
