Hands down the best collar I've ever purchased! Great quality materials & craftsmanship. Biothane is perfect for dogs who like to get wet. I have already ordered a matching leash, and have l plans to order other styles in the near future.

Fantastic quality and construction. Beautiful color and lovely tartan pattern. Will definitely purchase more leads and collars in the future!

Beautiful, wonderfully made collar. Colors are vibrant and the construction is excellent. I bought this for my greyhound, along with the matching tartan leash, and she's received tons of compliments everywhere she's worn it. Will definitely purchase more collars and leashes in the future!!

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.”
