About

Stylish handmade martingale collars, tag collars and leashes for your dogs

My life is in movement.....all the time. I love to sew, crochet, knit, do woodwork, make ornaments...I even bead...just a little. Because I can't sit still and love to create, this shop feeds my creativity and fills the gaps of time throughout the day.

Greyt Escape Accessories is a part time gig (that runs more like a fun time gig!). Built from the need to find collars for our first Greyhound, Riley adopted in 2004. By 2006, we opened the doors to "Greyt Escape, your greyhounds vacation destination!" (www.GreytEscape.com)

Because I work full time from home with the greyhounds, it opened another door to developing my creative side. My inspiration was of course, the regal greyhound who must always properly accessorized! The fancier the trim, the more excited I get to see the finished product. Of course, all dogs can wear these these collars.

As if running 2 businesses wasn't enough, I opened Chella Bella Designs on Etsy in 2009 to cater to the "humans" in the household. Stylish yoga mat bags, totes and other items are available throughout the year. www.ChellaBellaDesigns.etsy.com

We lost our greyhound girl, Opa, to Osteosarcoma cancer and Riley due to old age in 2014 but their spirits will always continue to drive us forward, helping more hounds find homes after track life. Both shops donate to greyhound rescue.

And in all that "free time" I am also one of 7 founders of "Beading Divas To The Rescue." (Also on Etsy) We have beaded bracelets since 2009 with the focus of supporting animal rescue. www.LizzieStardust.etsy.com / www.BeadingDivasBracelets.com

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

It is recommended that you take your dogs current collar and lay it next to a ruler. This will show you the current size it inches.

Don't have a current collar?
Take a piece of string and measure your dogs neck. Lay the string next to a ruler to get the size in inches.

When measuring a collar, you are getting the "exact size". It is recommended that you order a collar that has at least 4" of adjustment space to securely adjust it to you hounds size.

Sizing details

How Do I measure for a martingale collar?

If your dog currently wears martingale collar, you can check for sizing on the label. Otherwise, measure your dogs neck and head.

One of the most important questions is:

"Is your dogs head bigger or smaller than their neck?"
~Because there is no clasp or buckle on the martingale collar, the collar needs to be able to go over the dogs head and be readjusted.

Measure your dogs neck and widest part of the head (usually under the chin and up around the ears). These two measurements give you a high and low number to be used when ordering the collar.

It is recommended that you leave a couple inches on the high & low end of the size you measured so that you have room to adjust the collar.

Sizing details

Is this collar too wide or narrow?

This is a decision only you can make. What is your dogs current collar width? Does that width suit your needs? Dogs with short necks tend to wear more narrow collars. Dogs with long necks do well with the wider versions. Because every breed is different, you are the best person to determine their needs.

Care instructions

Can I wash this collar?

Yes. Spot cleaning is most recommended due to the fine details of the trim. However, I have washed many versions of the collars my own hounds have worn without much change in finish.

Wash on gentle, cold water, mild detergent. Lay flat to dry. Some trim may fade or lose the metallic finish. However, the webbing will not stretch or fade.

If fibers in the trim are loose due to daily wear & tear, try lightly heating them with a match or lighter (without burning them!) prior to washing. Loose fibers can occur due to scratching, rolling around, rough play, etc.

Custom and personalized orders

Can I return / exchange a custom item?

Because the item was made specially for you, it cannot be exchanged or returned unless the finished product does not match the request. I.E. wrong size, trim, etc...
