About Us



My name is Kirsten and I'm thrilled your search for new pet gear has landed you here! I'm 34 years old and live on the water in beautiful Harrison Township, Michigan. I live with my fiancé, Justin and our four dogs - Brie, Bella, Leo & Remi. 

In my spare time, I enjoy working with a local animal rescue, A ReJoyceful Animal Rescue. It was here that I initially fostered Brie (and happily failed miserably)! After purchasing a DNA test, I discovered that Brie is a ”mutt”, that looks a lot like a mini Golden Retriever. She is 4 years old and is my angel girl, whom I like to refer to as my "golden child". 

Bella was my 6th foster child. She also went through DNA testing and is a Border Collie/Labrador mix. I initially did not intend on keeping her. However, she has proven herself to most likely be the smartest dog I will ever own. She is 4 years old and is trained through our local Sit Means Sit. She is also successfully certified as a "Canine Good Citizen" through the AKC. We are looking forward to adding to her certifications this year! 

Leo is our carefree, handsome and charming Golden Retriever. He is 3 years old and was beautifully bred through Ridleys Red Retrievers out of Pennsylvania. Not a day goes by that I don't mindfully thank Jamie and her family for bringing this bundle of joy into our lives. He has been a true blessing.

Remi is our wild child that "never should have stayed". Every foster I found for her ended up returning her and it was not until she settled in with my pack that she found her forever home and true place in this world.  She never was supposed to stay but we can't imagine life without her! My forever snuggle bug!

In addition to my pups, I also have a 22 year old Quarter Horse named Dutchess.  Ever since I was a child I've dreamed of owning my own horse. With the help of my grandparents, my dreams became a reality in 2014. We have competed in some local hunter/jumper shows and truly enjoy the jumper division.  I am hoping to extend into equine gear by the end of 2020! 

With all of this said, I am truly grateful for the opportunity to own K9 Kouture. I've had a passion for animals my entire life and am ecstatic to share that with the rest of the world by providing gear that makes dogs and humans smile and their adventures long-lasting. 

Thank you again for stopping by!
