This is by far the best collar that I have purchased for my little English bulldog. ( and I have purchased lots! both handmade and factory made). This collar is beautifully stitched and strong enough for a stubborn bully. It is also just beautiful and shows her sturdy yet feminine side. ;) It shipped very quickly and communication was excellent. I highly recommend this shop. You will not be disappointed!

I am very pleased with this collar for my pup. The navy and gold brass I upgraded to looks so regal on my golden. Thank you, thank you. I will definitely be purchasing another one for my boyfriends dog soon.

Stunning work, as always. The sizing was spot on for my cat's neck, and the breakaway clasps are sturdy enough that his regular activities don't cause them to open.

Just finished a gorgeous set of martingales! Wow they look good together.
Hugo lending a helping hand sewing... well, paw actually. I'm sure the dogs would be in his place if they could!


How It All Started

Our small business began with a request from a local dog- daycare. Our friend who owns it, needed someone to make up some Martingale collars for her. I loved the ribbon and nylon collars and made up a few samples. Her customers loved them so I expanded the line and began to sell online.

Andre was the force behind the Biothane line of collars. He saw the product and knew right away they would make great collars and leashes. It was a long road to get it going and finding everything but we now have a wonderful line of collars to be proud of!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Christine: “Of course! We can even do new designs and patterns if you don’t see something you like. We don't personalize items only customize.”
Andre: "Yes for all custom orders. I just can’t make any martingales or harnesses in Biothane unless I can personally fit the dog for it.”

Sizing details

Christine: “All our collars are sold by width; all sizes are available for all widths. A small collar is 8- 13 inch adjustable, again regardless of width. Contact us if you need further clarification.”
Andre: “A ‘small’ collar size is the (adjustable) circumference. All sizes are the same cost, making it easier for customers to choose the correct size for their dogs. Width is your preference.”

Wholesale availability

We don't offer wholesale, sorry.

Tracking of packages

Christine: “We ship the least expensive way possible and this doesn’t include tracking (which is an extra fee). The shipping notification and our policies will give you a general time as to when the package will arrive.”
Andre: “Tracking is available through the shipping options when you purchase as well as express shipping. Please remember we have to make the items and then ship them.”

All collars and leashes are your responsibility once they are shipped.
Use items for their intended purpose only, no unsupervised use. Stay Safe.
Any damages incurred from the use of the collars or leashes are not our responsibility.
Any damage done by a dog (IE: scratching, biting, rough play etc.) isn't our responsibility.
As with similar items; fading, piling and snags might occur with the ribbon. This doesn't interfere with the integrity of the items, just aesthetics. Contact us if you have concerns.

Changing order address after purchse.

We are not able to change your shipping address after purchase. Make sure it is correct BEFORE you pay. :)

Custom and personalized orders

Sorry everyone, I no longer make martingales with quick side release buckles (or combo collars, buckle martingales, etc.). The stress of the entire process wasn't worth it for me. There are lots of other shops that offer this style, so no worries! :)
