Love these collars!! We've ordered several over the last few years and they are always so well made! The metal name tags are great - no more jingling dog tags! :)
I make collars, harnesses and leashes that would make my Mom proud.
Every item I offer is designed by ME and made by ME with my own hands in my little sewing room in my own house, and it's made for YOU. This is the way of "artisan crafted" - true hand made items created one at a time by a person who takes pride in the development of their craft, their style, their products. By day I do something else. By night I am a collar maker. And I make harnesses, leashes and a few other things. I've been doing it for a long time.
I offer dog collars in 3 widths and a few basic styles. I’ll break it down by style and then width and size.
*I make all traditional buckle collars with a basic acetyl nylon contoured side release buckle unless a different buckle or collar style has been requested, or if the listing already includes a different style of buckle. (see below for "Silver Colored Metal Buckles" )
*Martingale Collars* are a training type collar that is a favorite of Greyhound owners and owners of dogs whose head and neck and similar in width, such as English Bulldogs, Rottweilers, and sleek slender dogs like Salukies. The martingale collar is constructed with two main loops, one that is an “active” or “transitional” loop that tightens within a prescribed limit when the dog attempts to pull out of the collar. It is sometimes referred to as a “limited choke” or “limited slip” collar.
A martingale is suitable for any dog breed, however, I feel strongly that using a martingale collar is a commitment to a collar style for the sake of your dog’s safety. We as dog owners become trained to the way our pet’s accessories work for us, as do our dogs, and switching back and forth between collar styles WILL put a dog’s safety at risk. Please don’t. * I make martingales with chain transitional half-check loops also, upon request*
Martingale collars are available in all sizes, all widths and all designs.
Most listing offer the martingale style in the drop-down menu. It IS available on ALL my collars.
*Side Release “Regular” Snap Buckles* – are the buckles you’ll see on most of my listings. I use high quality acetyl nylon buckles, mostly black and they are available in all 3 widths. I prefer not to use them on a small or extra small collar that is 1.5” wide; it's a pretty big buckle.
*Silver Colored Metal Side Side Release Buckles* - these really dress up a ¾” or 1” wide collar and they are also strong and durable. I don’t offer them for 1.5” wide collars. These buckles are an upgrade ( it costs a little more) unless the listing features that buckle ON the collar already. If that buckle is featured, the collar has been priced to reflect that.
*Buckle-on Martingale* – a buckle can be added to any martingale collar. It can be selected as an upgrade. The addition of a silver buckle involves 2 upgrades - one for the add on ( priced for a black buckle) and one to use a silver buckle for it
***NEW - "BREAK AWAY" dog collars that CAN be used with a leash - these are for dogs who wrestle and climb. This option is listed as an upgrade which must be added to your order.
*Harnesses* I make harnesses in 2 styles, step-in and the traditional “H” style. I'll need your dog's girth measurement. I do make no-pull harnesses aka "ez walk" on request. I need a few extra measurements for that style. I love to make harnesses and I do an excellent job !
*Leashes/Leads* - I make leashes to match or coordinate with everything.
*Upgrades* - Offered within my listings are multiple upgrades that I am happy to offer; these include adding a buckle to a martingale collar, constructing a "break-away" collar and using a silver colored metal buckle in place of the black acetyl nylon buckle.
If you aren't sure about the size you need and you are going to measure ANYTHING, please measure your dog's neck. I don't want to know the length of a collar you have because there are too many variables. Let's get it right the first time.
*You don't see it?* Just ask - I probably can !
I support three local dog rescue groups and now that my children are grown, my life revolves around my own dogs. People who don’t have a dog to love are really missing something special. With proper training, man can be a dog's best friend.
If you got this far – thanks ! I'm glad you're here!
Around the web
Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator, I Do It All.
I am the buyer, designer, maker, photographer, shop manager, shipper and contact person. My turn around time has been temporarily expanded to a week or so. Most shipping is US First class and actual postal delivery times are not within my control.
I make all my collars, leashes and harness on durable nylon webbing (patterned webbing might be polyester), using high performing hardware and time tested trims. I do make some collars from my customers' choices of fabrics instead, but I prefer the combination of nylon webbing and trims because they have proven to hold up much longer than those made of reinforced cotton fabrics. I can say it because I know it.
I make YOUR pet accessory to YOUR specifications after you have placed your complete order. A "complete order" includes your dog's neck size or your size choice, the collar style and your color choice. The same applies to harnesses and leash length.
I'm pretty easy to work with and I'm very accommodating. I really want you to be happy you decided to purchase something from my shop. I take great pride in my work and I am thrilled that you love your dog and you want something really special.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
This means you can use any credit card or debt card. I do not send a printed invoice or packing slip, so if your order is being sent as a gift you don't have to ask.
My US shipping fees are for first class USPS shipping within the US. I do combine shipping, so if you are shipping multiple items to on addess & shipping seems high, please don't worry; I'll refund your shipping overage. Most of my customers do not ever pay more than $5.00 - 7.50 for shipping of 2-5 items within the US. The refund will be made when I create your shipping lable. You are welcome to contact me first if that's better for you.
Shipping outside of the US is first class unless you request a priority mail shipping upgrade; I will create a listing for you that represents the upgrade. Shipping of multiple items will generally cost much less than the amount implied on the listings. This is because the additional cost is not predictable. I will NOT overcharge you and I WILL refund ANY shipping overage you have paid. If you are ordering more than 2 items, please feel free to write to me prior to ordering. When you know exactly what you want to purchase I can tell you the actual cost.
International buyers will be responsible for taxes, tariffs, import fees, etc that are charged by your country. I have no knowledge of what those costs are. I do not receive any of the money collected by your country.
Refunds and Exchanges
My pet accessories are made with the intention to endure normal daily use (unless otherwise noted). Nothing lasts forever no matter who made it.
Dogs scratch and dogs chew and can ruin our favorite things. I can't be responsible for damage to items if your dog has done some of the things we wish they wouldn't do.
"Made to Order" - everything I sell is "made to order" in the size and style your dogs need and according to your choice of colors and color combinations. There are also style and upgrade options that are always available.
"Custom Orders" - this is a bit different. A "custom order" might include the purchasing of special materials or it might just be the execution of designs using specific combinations that I have not ever offered in the marketplace. If you have come to me requesting a custom design and I have committed to produce that for you, that item is yours to keep.
Engraved tags and buckles are CUSTOM and are not returnable unless I have made a mistake.
