It all started with 2 tiny rescue Italian Greyhounds.

I started sewing Martingales for my 2 Italian Greyhound rescues, Gracie and Phoebe. After receiving compliments from friends and family, I started sewing Martingales and Buckle collars for them. From there Iggy's Designs was started in 2009. I focused on local shows and had my own website to complete orders. In Fall of 2015, I turned my focus to selling on Etsy. In 2016 Iggy's Designs was recognized as the SCORE Business Start-up of the Year.

    Owner, Designer

    I have always enjoyed sewing and with 2 Italian Greyhounds began sewing their Martingale Collars. I had received so many compliments on them, I decided to offer them to friends and family and before I knew it, Iggy's Designs was started.

  • Gracie (RIP 6/19/18 @ 14-1/2 years)

    Supervisor, Quality Control

    Gracie is a rescued Italian Greyhound. She was in a kill shelter coming close to the end of her time. A very sweet elderly couple bailed her out and took her to an IG rescue. I needed her, and she me, we fell in love and now she's my heart dog.

  • Phoebe

    Model, Design Consultant

    Phoebe is an Italian Greyhound rescue. Phoebe was a Pet store puppy in Florida. When she was 7 months old, she was left outside day and night (in October). She was surrendered to rescue and came to live with me. She's my snuggle love bug!

  • Bob Gent (RIP 10/20/54-3/20/20)

    Business Operations/Accounting

    My husband Bob, joined me in 2016 after retiring from 37 years of Teaching. His handling of day to day business matters and accounting, allows me more time for designing and sewing.

All items are MADE TO ORDER for your pet. Please be sure to measure accurately. See instructions below on how to measure your pet.

Use a cloth measuring tape, or if you do not have one, use a piece of ribbon and then measure it with a flat ruler.
Measure the largest part of your dog's head, and the middle of his/her neck.
If your dog's head is larger than its neck, you will need a size that is large enough to slip comfortably over its head.
The collar size you select should adjust large enough to fit over the head, and adjust small enough to fit comfortably around the neck.

Measure the circumference of your dog's neck where the collar will be worn and choose a size within the range of that dimension. You should allow for 2 extra inches above the fitted size, so if your pet measures at the top of one size range, order the next size up.

Measure the circumference of the widest part of your dogs head, and the area of the neck where the collar will be worn and choose a size that includes BOTH of those numbers. The collar should also be 2" larger than than the head measurement to ensure it will slip on comfortably.

If you have any questions about your dog's neck size, please message me before placing an order so I may assist you with the correct sizing.

Only you can determine the suitability of these items for your pet. Consumer accepts all responsibility by purchasing and using these products.
