Lovely! Thanks so much for being patient with our indecision about the colors. Both collars turned out beautifully.

We LOVE this bandana!! It's very durable, fits perfectly, and the colours are very vibrant for summer. It's easily washed without losing its quality or shape. Our order made it to Ontario quickly, and with the cutest packaging! We had a great experience and will definitely be back for more. Thanks Lauren! :)

About

Stylish AND Sturdy.

All my life I have spent as much time around animals as possible - primarily dogs and horses. If there was one thing I learned quickly, it was that animals are tough! They love to run, tug, roll, splash, swim, and play, and this takes a toll on their gear.

I set out to create a collar for my young Dalmatian, Luci, that could stand up to any challenge she could offer. We use a martingale style collar on her for training purposes, but I wanted something more stylish and durable than the plain nylon ones she has worn in the past. I did a test run on my design in December 2011, and it was a great success - after countless walks, trips to the stable, and swims across our neighborhood pond, she is still sporting that collar today. (Anyone who knows the energy level and spontaneity of our Luci knows that's quite a feat.) Next thing I knew, all of my friends wanted a leather martingale for their furry friends and that's when dogdog goose;; was born!

I have a small workshop in the basement of my home which is where the magic happens! I make all of my collars from premium quality cow hides. I dye them with vegetable-based, non-toxic dyes to ensure the safety of your dog. No harmful chemicals here!

When you custom order a collar from me, it is made from scratch just for your dog - right down to every last measurement to ensure a great custom fit. I love when customers make a special request, as it gives me an opportunity to create something new. It is important to me to make something that works great for you and your individual dog. All dogs are different, so why shouldn't their collars be?

    Having loved and grown up around animals my whole life, it was no surprise to anyone when I came up with a way to incorporate them into my love of all things DIY and handmade. I live in St Albert, AB with my husband Brady, and our dogs Luci and Toro.

Additional policies and FAQs
**ABOUT REAL LEATHER**
- Care instructions are included with every item when shipped.

- Because leather is a natural, porous product, and I colour the pieces using stains rather than acrylic paint products, the colour and texture will change. This is normal, and will add to the rugged look and feel of buying an item that is made from real leather. Over time each item will develop a character and look that is truly unique. The degree and rate of change will vary from piece to piece, as it is affected by environment such as exposure to moisture, conditioning and care products, and even your dog's own unique hair and skin oils. No two collars will age in exactly the same way. The colour change will be more prominent in items made from lighter colours of leather such as natural tan, yellow, or teal. To preserve the true colour longer, remove the items before swimming or exposing to moisture. Despite any colour changes, the integrity and durability of leather will remain for many years when properly cared for.

- Each and every leather hide is unique and will receive the dye differently, so colours may show variance from the listing photos. I will often purposely select raw hides that show markings, blemishes, and scarring to give every collar an individual look. Every item will grow to develop its own unique, broken-in character over time. When properly cared for, the integrity of real leather will last for many years to come.

- All metal hardware components carry a lifetime warranty - in the rare event of a failure, just contact the shop and replacement parts will be sent out.

Sizing details

Sizes listed are the lengths of the actual collars on the various settings available - not the snug neck sizes that they are designed for.

Most dogs will wear a collar that is slightly larger than their snug neck size by approximately 0.5" - 2", depending on how loosely you would like the collar to fit.

To aid in sizing, it helps to measure the length of their existing collar on the setting that they normally wear it.

Feel free to reach out with any questions regarding sizing prior to purchasing.
