Trendy greyhound martingale dog collars for any dog, breed, or size.

Welcome to Trendy Hounds! My name is Kathleen & I’m the sole owner/collar maker of Trendy Hounds martingale collars and leashes. I'm a breast cancer survivor (as of Dec. 2014), wife, mom, dog lover, and collar maker. I'm here to dress up your dog.

I live in South Carolina, USA, with my husband, 2 sons, future daughter-in-law, a rat terrier mix, a cane corso, and my son’s hunting dog. My love for dogs is my greatest inspiration. Growing up we always had lots of dogs and over the years I’ve had a Pekinese, several rescue dogs, (3) retired racing greyhounds, and a bull mastiff in addition to the current dogs we have.

The desire to make martingale dog collars originated when we adopted a retired racing greyhound in 2005. We started looking for martingale collars to outfit him with. The first few martingale dog collars we purchased didn’t last long and were very expensive. This led to the beginning of Trendy Hounds martingale collars and leashes.

I started out making 1.5 inch size “medium” martingale collars for greyhounds only. It wasn’t long before customers were requesting collars in other collar widths and sizes, which led to gradually adding the ¾ inch, 1 inch, and 2 inch width martingale collars in various sizes (x-small, small, medium, large, and x-large) for ALL BREEDS of dogs.

I continually research supplies (hardware, webbing, grosgrain, jacquard ribbon, woven ribbon, etc.) for the best quality and of course the best pricing so I can continue to offer quality martingale collars at affordable prices.

All Trendy Hounds martingale collars are lined with a fuzzy felt lining to help prevent bald spots on the dog’s neck. This fuzzy felt lining sets Trendy Hounds martingale dog collars apart from other collar makers.

CUSTOMER SERVICE--I try to imagine how I would like to be treated if I were the customer. You can’t always please everyone all the time, but I do my best to try. I don’t pre-sew collars because I never know what size or collar width will be needed so I only make collars as they are ordered. I know when someone places an order they can’t wait to see their new collar(s) so I do my best to get orders out as soon as possible. I have a processing (sewing) time to allow myself time to get orders sewn, however as soon as I complete orders they are shipped so you can receive them as soon as possible.

Additional policies and FAQs
1. Are martingale collars just for greyhounds?
Even though martingale collars are the recommended collar for greyhounds/sight hounds, they work "greyt" for ALL Breeds. Martingale collars are also known as the "humane choker" or "gentle choke" collar. Because the choke effect is gentle to the neck but effective, the martingale collar is great for training. More & more other breeds are enjoying the comfort, reliability, and durability of martingale collars.

2. How do I clean or care for a Trendy Hounds collar?
