Doing what I love to do, Create!

I am a retired Police officer who has always had a love for animals, particularly dogs. I am currently "owned" by 7 sighthounds, 5 azawakh, a saluki, and a borzoi. I have been active in fostering, and I regularly donate to my local SPCA Humane Society. I have always been crafty, and was dismayed by the lack of pretty collars, and dog show paraphernalia such as show leads, and armband holders for my unique and rare hounds. I decided after retirement to share my craftiness with others and offer unique items that otherwise would not be found in a run-of-the-mill brick & mortar store. All my work is custom, and one of a kind for your hound,(or any other pet you have, just shoot me a message and I'll see what I can come up with!) In closing, I am proud to offer beautiful, one of a kind handmade items for your special pet.

Thank you!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

All items are made strong and secure but please do keep in mind that they are handmade and should be handled and treated with care. I am not responsible for damage due to misuse.

*Appearances of colors: Please note that colors may vary slightly due to differences in computer monitors and camera projections.

Custom and personalized orders

There are no returns for personalized and handmade custom orders unless defective.
Please understand, each item is hand made so no two will be exactly alike. No product for dogs is indestructible, and collars will show wear after extended use and rough play/handling. Normal wear and tear will not be considered a defect.

Care instructions

All items are hand washable in cold water and air dry only. Woolite brand detergent is the best one to use for this.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I will gift wrap your item if its intended as a gift. Please indicate that in your order if necessary. An additional fee will be assessed.

Custom and personalized orders

I hope that if you experience any problems with your order, you'll contact me so that we can work to fix it.

Because my items are made-to-order for your pet, returns or exchanges for incorrect sizes or different colors may not be accepted. Please measure your pet carefully PRIOR to ordering to prevent sizing errors. (this means if your pet has a head bigger than its neck, please allow for that in sizing.)
No product for dogs is indestructible; wear and tear is normal and will not be considered a defect.
Any refunds given will exclude original shipping costs (if applicable) or a 15% restocking fee.
Requests for returns must be received within 14 days of delivery to be eligible for refund or exchange.


I guarantee all of my items for a period of 90 days from purchase for hardware defects or craftsmanship defects ONLY. If you experience breakage as a result of a hardware or craftsmanship defect within the 90 days warranty period, you may return the item to me for repair or replacement* at no extra cost. Buyer pays return shipping of the defective item, I will cover shipping costs of the new or repaired item. MARTINGALE COLLARS are more prone to wear and tear from friction. This is normal with any martingale, but especially fabric-covered collars. To minimize wear and tear on your martingale, do not use it to tether your dog (tie-outs, chains, etc) and always inspect for damage prior to use.

Warranty Cont’

*Replacement items must be of equal or lesser value of original item, else buyer will be responsible for the difference in cost.

All Warranties will be considered NULL and VOID if the item has been modified, repaired, or otherwise tampered with by anyone other than myself.

If more than 90 days has passed and a piece of your collar/leash/harness is damaged, I can often repair it (if possible) for a low, reasonable fee. Contact me with any issues.

Shipping Policy

Items are shipped First Class or Priority Flat Rate and should arrive within 2 - 5 business days after shipping (lower 48 states only). International shipping is First Class International, and arrival time is dependent upon your location but can be anywhere from 7-21 days or more.

If you have a special shipping request, feel free to email me and I'll see what I can do to accommodate!

Additional Policies

I do my best to accommodate changes to your order. However, keep in mind that it is entirely possible that your order may be started immediately after purchase. Any item that has already been started may not be changed. Please contact me as soon as possible to request a change - I can let you know at that time if your request can be completed without an additional fee.

All sales, conversations, payments, and transactions will be completed via Etsy or e-mail correspondence only. Mother of Hounds Design does not place or accept phone calls at this time.

Sizing details

I've had some issues in the past about sizing. Please, measure your pet correctly so the size of the collar is correct for your pet. A mistake in sizing is not a reason for an automatic refund. The items I make are made to order for your pet, at the time of ordering. Refunds and exchanges will be made on a case by case basis, depending upon the complexity of the item made.
