Collars for Any Reason!

I'm one of those people always on the hunt for just-the-right collar for my dog, Archer. Whether it be a holiday that was coming up, the season was changing, or just plain boredom with my current collar collection, I was constantly on the lookout for a great collar. Many times, I couldn't find what I was looking for, so I'd settle.

After graduating from college and landing a great job, I still wanted to find a way to use my creativity and be able to share it with others.

Who better to discuss this with than my dog?

Basically, Archer told me, “Hey, you know how you always get me new collars for different holidays and occasions? And you know how you can’t always find what you’re looking for? Well, why don’t you make collars?!” He had a point. I did some research and felt completely inspired. It was perfect.

Thus, I introduce to you… Nifty Pup! I’ve been gathering supplies, figuring out the right process and materials, and scouring shops and online for the best fabrics and ribbons I could find to make my shop and collars stand out. I’ve been loving every minute of this new venture.

All dog collars are handmade with either fabric, or nylon webbing & ribbon. Sizes and widths depend on the fabric or ribbon design. I try to make designs available in all sizes (XS-XL) but certain ribbons and fabric only allow for limited sizes. Contact me if you see a collar you like that isn't available in your dog's size, and I will try my best to accommodate.

Most collars can have the buckle color changed or can be upgraded to metal buckles.

Custom orders are welcomed! Fill out a Custom Order Form and I'll get in touch with you shortly to work out the details so you can get the exact collar you want!

Additional policies and FAQs
Caring for the Collars:

Wash your dog's collar by hand in the sink, using 3 cups of water to 1 cup of vinegar. Vinegar will clean and disinfect the collar without leaving behind irritants that will bother your dog's skin. Soak the collar for 10 minutes, then rinse.

Allow to air dry before putting back on your dog.

Never put a collar in the dryer to dry it, as it can warp the collar.
