This collar is super adorable. The quality is wonderful as well. Love the engraved metal buckle that I added on to my purchase; really frees up the heaviness of dog collars. Very pleased with my purchases and will definitely be a repeat customer.

This collar is adorable and well made. I bought a Christmas one last year and was excited to buy another one she could wear the rest of the year. The packaging and treats were great too! Can definitely tell the maker puts a lot of heart and thought into it.

About

Dog Collars, Leads, Bow Ties and Flowers handmade for your fur kid.

About 8 years ago I became the mother to a beautiful black lab named Leila. Since the day she came into my life I had been trying to find the perfect collar and accessories that would make people see that she was in fact a girl and not a boy.

To my surprise, it was even harder than expected to find something "girly" but also in my price range. Everything that screamed GIRL was either too expensive or was far too boring for my taste...and Leila's, of course.

So, in 2010, I decided to give collar making a go. I had just started my first teaching job and was looking for a creative outlet to come home to at the end of the night. Much to my surprise, my family and friends were loving what I was coming up with so I decided to introduce my products to the rest of the world.

Since then, the rest, as they say, is history...

I currently create out of my large home studio that my amazing husband designed and built for me. You can also find my products in 20+ shops across the United States and overseas.

Sizing details

It is very important that you measure your pup for their new collar. The best way to measure is with a soft measuring tape around the widest part of your dogs neck. Sizing is as follows:

• X-Small: 7 to 11 inches
• Small: 10 to 15 inches
• Medium: 12 to 19 inches
• Large: 15 to 24 inches
• X-Large: 17 to 29 inches
**Custom sizes available if needed. Please contact me for more information**

If your dog is in between sizes, please contact me for a custom size.

Care instructions

Collar Care Instructions:
Collars are WASHABLE. Simply wash in the machine in cold water (put collar inside of a garment bag), hand wash or put in the top rack of the dishwasher. Air dry - do not put collars in the dryer. Do not use bleach.

I HIGHLY recommend hand washing in cold water. I use a solution of water, detergent and OxiClean. Use an old toothbrush to scrub stains. Lay flat to dry.

Bow Tie and Flower Car Instructions:
Spot clean only when necessary. Do not submerge in water.
Remove flowers and bow ties before your pup swims, sleeps or rough houses.

While our collar are made to last, frequent use will cause your collar to wear faster (just like if you were to wear your favorite pair of jeans every day).

An Important Note from Sarah

I am first and foremost a dog mom; safety is my number one concern. It is important to not leave your products anywhere that it may get chewed/consumed by your fur kid. While we strive to provide the best possible products, pets are inherently unpredictable. We cannot be held liable for any harm that may result from neglect, abuse, use or misuse. As the customer/purchaser of these products, you are responsible for determining the suitability of any of the items for your individual situation and assume all responsibility and liability by purchasing these products. Be sure to check your pup’s collar for wear and tear on a regular basis and do not ever leave your dog tied up inside or outside in their collar unsupervised.

Collar Colors/Pattern Variations

While I strive to portray all collar colors exactly how they appear in real life, variations in computer/phone screen settings may make colors appear either brighter or more dull than than they are in real life. If you have any concerns about colors, please contact me before purchasing.

Please note that all collars are created by hand. With that being said, no two will be exactly exactly alike. Each collar is custom made to order. I do ask for your understanding and that there may be slight differences in the pattern from what is shown in the photos.
