Announcement   Collard Green Dogs produces upcycled, repurposed, planet-friendly pet accessories for dogs big and small. We love pooches and we love the planet!

Our specialty is our home-sewn martingale collars, crafted from hemp webbing and reclaimed ribbon, recycled seatbelts, and upcycled textiles, or repurposed belts. Because our fabric comes from recycled clothing, estate sales and vintage suppliers, there is a limited supply of each print and each collar is truly one (or four) of a kind.

We also craft eco-friendly dog toys from repurposed materials and natural fibers. And because earth-friendly hounds should be rewarded for their earth-friendly efforts, we also bake up some delicious homemade doggy treats

Collard Green Dogs was established to bring fashion-forward pups and owners eco-friendly collars and pet accessories.

It all began when my husband, Will, and I fostered, then adopted, Cooper, a rather threatening looking Rottweiler. In order to soften his appearance and (hopefully) lesson our neighbors' fears that he would devour their toddlers, we started adorning him with fun, funky collars. I got such positive feedback I decided to sew them for friends and began selling on Etsy via www.etsy.com/CollardDogs.

After some selling, I got the impression that the collar market on etsy was saturated. Lots of look-a-likes, with hard-to-compete-with pricing. I wanted to produce something different and environment-friendly. Mmmmmm...

Then one day I was perusing one of my favorite craft blogs, CraftingaGreenWorld.com, and EUREKA! Upcycling! Collard Green Dogs was born.

Our speciality is our home-sewn, hemp webbing and upcycled textile martingale collars. Because our fabric comes from recycled clothing, yardage from estate sales and vintage suppliers, there is a limited supply of each print and each collar is truly one-of-a-kind. We also craft upcycled leashes, repurposed knitwear dog toys and home-baked biscuits.

I produce all of the collars in our Milford, Michigan home, usually supervised by our yellow lab Owen and a foster dog or two. (The foster dog of the moment is Kip, a lab/pit bull mix who's sweet as pie and looking for love.)

Refunds and Exchanges
If there is a sizing issue we will happily exchange the unworn collar for a replacement collar in the appropriate size. The client will be responsible for all shipping costs. Returned collars will be donated to HomeFurever or Furry Friends. Both are Detroit-area rescue organizations that Will and I have worked with.
Additional policies and FAQs
Most collars are martingale style. I like the way they work and I like the minimal hardware. The improved funtionality and snappier look more than make up for the slightly more difficult construction and increase in materials. But, I also produce collars with quick release buckles. See the upgrade info.

I typically produce 1.5", 1" and .75" wide collars. They are meant to be functional fashion statements so the wider the better. That said, I also make 2" widths. I am happy to take special requests and can accommodate any neck size, from yorkie to great dane. Just convo me for details.

I am always looking for consignment and craft show opportunities. If you think we'd be a good fit, let me know.
