Tito’s Handmade Vodka and BISSELL Pet Foundation Debut “Walktail” Capsule Collection Specially Curated to Embrace the Everyday Dog Walk With a Twist
At the Core of the Collection Is the Custom-Engineered ‘Tito’s Walk-Pack’ – A Belt Bag Equipped With a Drink Holder and Three Pockets for Mini Tito’s Bottles
Tito’s Vodka For Dog People, a program created by Tito’s Handmade Vodka dedicated to rescuing and protecting pets, announced it’s teaming up with BISSELL Pet Foundation to launch an exclusive capsule collection that embraces the “walktail” – a cocktail you take on a walk with your family, friends, and of course – your dogs. As a part of the collaboration, 100% of the net proceeds from every purchase will be donated to BISSELL Pet Foundation in an effort to support its goal to find a loving home for every pet.
The Walktail Capsule Collection is inspired by the trend of all things walking and features accessories for all your walktail needs designed by the expert dog-walking and cocktail-drinking team at Tito’s. At the cornerstone of the collection is the Tito’s Walk-Pack ($45), a belt bag equipped with a holder for the go-to walktail vessel, the Tito’s Walk & Sip YETI Rambler® Lowball ($30), along with three pockets for mini 50mL Tito’s bottles (sold separately) to make sure friends who join you can also enjoy a cocktail, two zipper pockets, and a carabiner for a variety of dog-walking needs.
Grabbing a walktail adds a little movement, fresh air – and dogs – to your typical happy hour with friends. Or, it can be a fun spin on “hot girl walks” that are currently dominating across social media and in real life to bring together new friends – two and four-legged.
The Walktail Capsule Collection can be purchased online at store.titosvodka.com/collections/walktail or at the Love, Tito’s retail store in Austin, TX. Other merchandise items in the collection include:
- Tito’s Sniff In Style Bandana ($5): Turn the block into a catwalk…wait, dog-walk? Either way, tie on the Tito’s Sniff In Style Bandana and your pup can sniff in style.
- Tito’s Unzip N’ Sip Dog Bowl ($20): Pack up a Tito’s Unzip n’ Sip Dog Bowl to be prepared for every adventure! Pawfect for patios, trails, dog-park days, and extra sidewalk sniffs, ’cause ya never know where your walk might take you.
- Tito’s Dog Person Hat ($20): Tell us you’re a dog person who likes vodka without telling us you’re a dog person who lik— well, you get it.
- BISSELL Pet Foundation Cap ($20): Hats off to helping homeless pets! Jump in head first and support BISSELL Pet Foundation.
- BISSELL Pet Foundation Dog Leash ($12): Every Tito’s fan loves a good cocktail just like every dog loves a good walk. And BISSELL Pet Foundation is on a mission to make sure those pups get plenty of ’em.
To complement the launch, Tito’s is releasing a series of walktail-themed cocktail recipes, curated specifically to take and make on the go. These recipes include:
- Tito’s Tropical Tail Wagger (Tito’s + Orange Sparkling Water + Pineapple + Guava)
- Tito’s Best in Show (Tito’s + Sparkling Water + Lime Slice)
- Tito’s Sunny Dog Day (Tito’s + Lemonade)

“As longtime admirers of all the work BISSELL Pet Foundation does in the animal rescue space, we could not be more excited to team up with them on this collaboration,” said Beth Bellanti-Pander, Vodka for Dog People Program Director at Tito’s Handmade Vodka. “We love dogs and a good walktail with our friends and hope this inspires people to get together and enjoy a Tito’s cocktail on their next walktail stroll around the neighborhood. It’s a great way to hang out with friends and get outside if you’re feeling a bit cooped up – plus, the pups love it, too.”
BISSELL Pet Foundation is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help reduce the number of animals in shelters through pet adoption, spay/neuter programs, vaccinations, microchipping, and crisis and disaster response. Prior to the Walktail Capsule Collection, Vodka for Dog People and BISSELL Pet Foundation have worked together on their shared mission of helping dogs for a while now, teaming up on ten transport flights to help get dogs from dangerous situations and overcrowded shelters to safety and adoption.
“Tito’s has been incredibly supportive in furthering our mission of finding every pet a home,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “We are excited to be part of this fun collaboration and encourage friends and their pups to get together for a happy hour stroll with a Tito’s walktail.”
