Trisha Yearwood launched her new line of products for pets designed to help make their life easier and happier, and recently revealed that her two rescue dogs Emmy and Millie were her inspiration behind the products.
The 3-time Grammy award winning country singer may be busy with other aspects of her career, like music, growing her retail shop, and even acting as a coach to new musicians trying to break into the industry, but she’s definitely not too busy to come up with a line of products meant to improve the comfort of pets.
Trisha Yearwood’s Pet Collection
The Trisha Yearwood Pet Collection includes pet bedding, treats, collars, pet shampoos and conditioners and more. In an interview with PEOPLE, the country musician said that her two rescue dogs Emmy and Millie didn’t only serve as an inspiration for the line, but actually helped test some of its products.
Trisha Yearwood brought Emmy home when she found her wandering down a road in Oklahoma in July 2013. Millie was adopted by Trisha Yearwood and her husband Garth Brooks five years later in November 2018.
“My dogs are indoor-outdoor dogs. They will dig around and roll in things. I want them to enjoy their lives,” Yearwood said of her rescue dogs Emmy and Millie. “These are the real dogs that inspired me, so we made dog bedding that is machine washable and wipes to get dogs clean quick in between baths.”
Trisha Yearwood also said that she thinks that the line will be “practical and pretty” for pet owners, but mostly, she hopes the new line can get to help more animals and improve their lives.
“I hope that this pet line will give me the opportunity to help more shelters and rescue animals and have the chance to educate others about the importance of spaying/neutering your pet and pet adoption. Animals that you rescue, there is just nothing like them. It’s such a wonderful gift. It’s unconditional love.”
Trisha’s Rescue Dogs Help Her Cope With Anxiety
In another interview with New Beauty, the “She’s in Love with the Boy” singer revealed that having Millie and Emmy in her life became a coping mechanism for her in terms of stress. According to Trisha, getting to walk, or run, the dogs in their many hills helps her feel better about things.
“I have a couple of rescue dogs that like to run every day, so I hike with them. We have a lot of hills, so it’s a no-joke hike that helps me clear my mind. In the very beginning of this, around April of last year, I had the anxiety that everybody had. I thought, ‘I can’t do this for long’—I had to force myself to figure out ways to calm down. I’m a spiritual person, so I made myself start the day by not scrolling my phone, reading a devotional, and just being quiet and meditative. I do all that on the hikes, too. It’s a great time to contemplate and it keeps me centered.”

We love animals. We had four cats but 3 of them passed away last year as they were all old (17 to 19) and we have a dog too. I am always in the look out for dog products so I will take a look at these.
Dogs are so calming. I love nothing more than hanging out with mine. Lovely to hear about how they can inspire this great work too.
I love this collection so much! And even more so since they are inspired by her rescue dogs.
What a cute collection! It is fun to find some neat products for pets. She has a fun style.
Aw this is great. I am a animal lover and I can’t wait to eventually have a dog, just waiting until our work commitments and life settles down first though x
Pets in general have a calming effect on us. I think we’d all benefit from having a pet personally.
How cute! I will have to check out this line and find something for my little pet. Love the inspiration behind it too!
Trisha Yearwood is also a chef. I wonder if she cooks for her dogs, too?
I love Trisha Yearwoods as her songs are amazing and she is a good cook too. So glad to learn about her new pet collection and I can’t wait to see what it is all about
Thank you for sharing Trisha’s story! I have a rescue dog & he has been such a comfort during the pandemic 🐾
I agree that having pets really help us fight anxiety. Indeed this post is very inspiring. I admire her. I hope more people will rescue dogs too.
I haven’t yet heard of her songs but she sounds so amazing as a creative person! Looks like Trisha Yearwood Pet Collection has great products for the dogs 🙂
it’s amazing how animals can reduce stress and anxiety (nature too). I know my son’s dog has definitely helped him when it comes to dealing with his anxiety ; )
I love that she has this pet line of awesome products to help rescue shelters, etc…
What a cool collection! I have always loved Trisha Yearwood.
This is so sweet, and I love the inspiration behind the collection. Dogs really can help with anxiety, they’re amazing!
