Veteran Owned Handmade Dog Collars & Leashes!

ABOUT THE ARTIST

My name is Daniel; I currently live in Sparta, New Jersey, in a 120-year-old farmhouse with my husband, Jose, our three shelter dogs, and our two foster kids. I have a small sewing studio in my home where I make handmade dog collars & leashes with my sewing machine. I am a dog lover & innovator who grew up sewing. At a young age, my Mom who worked in a sewing factory (sewing for LL Bean) taught my brother, sister & I how to sew. We didn’t have a lot of money so every opportunity we had to enhance our clothes was important - we took a pair of sweat pants from early Spring, turned them into shorts in the Summer, and by Winter they were socks.

In late 2018, after many years of not sewing, I stumbled upon a YouTube video on “how to sew a dog collar”, this sparked my curiosity, mostly because I was tired of the same boring designs from big box stores. A few days later I ordered materials & made my first attempt at a Medium sized collar. I quickly learned all about construction, design & materials.

Since 2018, I have sold over 6000 collars between online sales and various shows up and down the East Coast (mostly Virginia & New Jersey. You can also find my collars at Waggmore Dog Boutique & Bakery in Sparta, New Jersey. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to reach out.

Happy trails!
