Really lovely collar. The green is slightly different shade than I was expecting from the photos but lovely nonetheless. Must be very comfortable as my dog doesn’t pay any attention to it whatsoever.

Perfect size, express shipping!!! We love it. We really recommend it ❤️
Shadedmoon - Born out of necessity!
I have always had dogs ( Great Dane, Dobermann and Manchester Terrier) and in 2005 I made the best decision and went to visit a litter of Italian Greyhound pups - I went to pick up a blue girl - and came away having booked a fawn boy !!
He chose me!
Cairo is oldest Italian Greyhound here at Shadedmoon and still loves to model, even though his eyes are sometimes a little too misty for the shop photographs, he is still a very handsome chap. Cuba joined us a year later and both thoroughly enjoyed obedience and agility training.
In 2007 I picked up my 3rd Italian Greyhound and started my dog showing with her, Aspen was different from my others and was so delicate that I felt uncomfortable putting heavy wide leather collars on her delicate neck - I couldn't find anything suitable, or small enough - so decided to make my own - several Italian Greyhound additions to the family later, I am making collars, harnesses and clothing, firstly to suit my own dogs varied needs - (what suits one, may not suit another) - then rolling those designs out to other Iggy (Italian Greyhound) owners.
I started out selling on social media sites then at the Italian Greyhound Club UK shows and events, then moved to Etsy in 2010, I have enjoyed great success and love to evolve my designs as new challenges present, my designs have been developed due to the changing and differing needs of my own dogs, each of my designs have a story and are designed for a specific purpose.
I do have the best customers who kindly send me wonderful photos of their iggies in my creations.
I love the different colours and fabric designs and enjoy combining these to make collars and clothing at affordable prices, the items do also have to be functional and design decisions are made to accommodate this. My own dogs wear the clothing, harnesses and collars to go out both on and off leash, it is important to me that they not only look good they are functional and do not hamper a dogs movement, comfort or feel heavy to the dog around the neck.
Owner, Creator, Designer
Cairo is my oldest model and now semi retired at age 14yrs, He loves to model but often the camera flash is just too much for his aging misty eyes, so he has to wait it out for days with good natural light.
Cuba is age 13 yrs and is always the upmost professional ! Cuba is so good and turns her head, just in the right angles to get a good shot - she has produced some of my most favourite photos for the shop. Payment preferred in hot dog sausages
Aspen is 11 yrs old and my resident Supermodel always eager to please and just loves the camera ! Pick up a camera and she is there in a flash ! Looking straight down the lens a supermodel through and through :-)
Nasir (10 yrs old) is my part-time model he doesn't mind the odd job but not wanting a full time career in modelling. He has the most elegant head and neck and the longest legs !
Saudi is 9 yrs old a super handsome model - with beautiful soulful eyes - not always keen on the modelling assignments - he has to be in the mood - he can be a bit shy with the camera - but not with people generally - good treats may sway him :-)
Lyra is 7 yrs old she likes modelling but prefers natural lighting - she is not keen on flash photography :-) When it works she is very photogenic !
Fable, stunningly beautiful, died very suddenly age 6 years - from unknown causes- her photos live on here - she is missed beyond words every day by all of us at Shadedmoon
Lumen is 5 yrs old and looking to follow in the pawsteps of her supermodel mum Aspen - still learning - always keen - but finds it difficult to stay still :-)

Please note first class post is not a guaranteed service.** In most cases parcels
arrive within 1 to 3 working days but sometimes can take longer. Royal mail
will not consider a parcel to be lost until 15 working days have passed from
the date of posting. If your parcel has not arrived within this time please
let us know and we will aim to sort out the problem.
Items that have not been received by the buyer need to be reported within 15 days
**UK surface Mail is available as 2nd Class Signed For mail - if you select the 1st Class signed for UPGRADE the items generally arrive quicker and an identification number will show the status of your parcel.
My advice is where financially viable signed for UPGRADE option should be taken, you not only can keep track of your item if there is an issue with non-delivery the parcel can be found quicker and issues resolved quicker rather than having to wait the 15 working days before items can be verified as being lost.
Please note If you require next day delivery you will need to contact me for a quote however 'next day delivery' does not speed up order processing times it only refers to shipping, normal processing time is 7 days, so when an item has been made it can be received quicker with this option.
Unless requested your parcel has been sent via standard Royal Mail ( economy Airmail. There is no tracking service provided with this service**.
My advice is where financially viable the UPGRADE option should be taken it not only provides tracking so that you can see where your item is but another important benefit is that if there is an issue with non-delivery the items can be found much quicker and issues resolved quicker - normal international airmail the customer will need to wait 42 days (six weeks) before items can be verified as being lost
Delivery to Europe usually takes around 7 working days but in some extreme
cases can take up to 30 working days.
Delivery to the rest of the world may take around 14 working days or
in rare cases up to 42 days.
Please note since May 2015 Shadedmoon Canadian customers appear to be waiting longer than usual for items to arrive.
International items are not considered missing by Royal Mail until - Europe 20 working days - Rest of the world 25 working days have elapsed
Items that have not been received by the buyer need to be reported within 25 days.
**Please note tracking is not standard on parcels from the UK in order to keep shipping costs down for the customer - however an UPGRADE option is available now at checkout it does incur additional charges from £5.00 extra depending on weight of parcel Thank you :-)
Tracking - A few countries ( Guadeloupe, Macao, Norway, South Africa etc.) do not have facilities for tracking parcels
Where expedite shipping is purchased from these countries items will be sent by 'signed for' service this speeds up travel of your parcel and a barcode is listed this should help in tracing your parcel in the unlikely event it got lost.
CANADIAN Customers purchasing UPGRADE - Canada does not have the facilities to track packages through customs tracking is visible within your parcels movements in the UK until the item leaves the UK then no further information is available until delivery when a signature is required, this is still a better option but in my experience the 5-7 day estimate for delivery is very often exceeded.
