Announcement   In 2015 we lost one of our own. And it has been hard, but to honor her work as a person, Arcadius Dog Collars will be donating 25% of all sales to Speak Dog Academy.

Speak Dog Academy is a surrender prevention program that offers free behavior consultations and low-cost training solutions for people and their pets. One way to rescue is to not have to rehome. Rehoming is usually a result of misunderstandings between dog and owner. Speak Dog Academy helps you understand your dog better. Do you speak dog? We do.


NEW for 2016! Arcadius Dog Collars is discontinuing all previous collections and starting fresh with new exclusive hand dyed prints. We start with white fabric and create all the different colors and patterns you see.

Arcadius Dog Collars are for dogs with a classic sense of style and for the owner who truly values artisan work. The fabric is dyed by us, printed by us, and eventually made into a collar by us as well. Each collar is one of a kind in every way, just like your four legged companion.

Arrived timely, but not sure why I had to specify the size of the collar (1.5"), as the Velcro strip that was attached wouldn't come close to going around the collar properly. I would have sent it back, but didn't have time to deal with that before the occasion for which I ordered it. The flower is pretty, but I was bummed that it wasn't made to appropriately attach to a collar.

About

The Greatest Bio You'll Ever Read

It started out as a pipe dream and something completely different from what it is now. It was dog treats and dog food.

And then I got fired from my job and spent a week at home with pounds of fabric that I had collected with plans to do this or that with, to make a vest or a skirt or a dress. I had rarely sewn before that point but I always knew that I could. Call it arrogance perhaps, but somehow that little facet of information was in my mind. And I made it. It took perhaps an hour, an ironing board, a strip of fabric and interfacing and a buckle from an old worn dog collar.

However, I also have a love for realism and for nature and once again that knowledge that every time I go to the store and see those perfectly formed silk flowers, I could make them just as easily as I could buy them. That part became the obsession.

... Oh. And yes, of course, my dogs are my children :) And they need to look adorable (It's the boy dog that likes to look snazzy - that's why there are so many unisex or boy prints).

    I've always loved to craft. I've always loved to create things, mostly pushing the boundaries of what I think I can do. I went to college for English (Classics - not really creative writing) and Traditional art.

Hey!

I have a passion for all things natural and that's ultimately what this company is founded on. My treats are all natural made with only products I'd eat myself (which says a lot because I'm a pretty picky eater)! I only make fabric collars because, even if it is a microscopic thing, they are better for the environment. They are also not synthetic fabrics. Cotton is not as strong as nylon, which means checking puppy's collar more often is a necessity to check for wear and tear for his safety and your peace of mind. But cotton collars dry quickly and are easily washable - great for the puddle-pooch! Cotton also biodegrades far faster than nylon. Cotton biodegrades in 1-3 months versus nylon that takes up to 40 years.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
Please pay as soon as possible. The sooner I get payment confirmation, the sooner your order will start to be processed.
Shipping
I ship USPS and most of my items are custom made to order so the average processing time is 7-14 business days.

I recently added TWO shipping upgrades to almost all listings:

1. Expedited Order and Priority Shipping: This upgrade applies to someone who needs it sooner than two weeks OR are nervous about waiting two weeks for it. These expedited orders are made in 1-7 days and mailed with PRIORITY shipping once mailed. I do require that if this option is selected, the buyer must provide a need-by date so I can do my best to make sure it arrives before the date needed. I, of course, have no control over the USPS shipping but I will always mail the product with ample delivery time.

2. Express Order and Express Mail: This upgrade applies to someone who needs it ASAP. Express orders are made in 1-2 days and shipped with USPS Priority Express shipping. This shipping is overnight to most places. So the buyer will be able to receive this item in as little as 3 days.


For all United States residents, my products are shipped first-class mail. They are boxed, wrapped in gift paper, and topped with a cute bow. And scented! The product is not scented, only the wrapping. For International customers, products are shipped first class mail, still boxed and wrapped with care. :)
Refunds and Exchanges
I am sure you'll be quite satisfied with your collar and/or harness purchase but if you aren't satisfied for whatever reason, send me a message within 10 days of your purchase with the reason for your dissatisfaction and I will refund your purchase minus shipping. I do ask, however, that the collar is returned to us in the same condition as it was received.

If you never receive your item, please send me a message. If I have the materials, I will make a replacement for you. If I do not have the supplies, we can discuss substituting the lost item for something else that I have available in the shop.

If anything else quirky happens, don't be afraid to send me a note.

Your complete satisfaction is my main goal!
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are made in a smoke-free, pet-friendly house. I have two dogs and one cat and while my items are protected from haphazardly encountering my pets (everything is stored away after production), pets are in the house and are with me while I work. My collars are made with 100% cotton fabric and interfacing. There is no nylon at all so if your dog has sensitive skin, my collars would be perfect!

Wholesale and Consignment options are available, send me a message detailing what you want for the order and I will let you know the percentage discount.
