Here is the story of why I started my shop!

When it was time for us to upgrade our leash for Winston, I wanted to buy a leash made from climbing rope, because I thought they were the coolest things to use while hiking with your dog. However, when I looked around for one, I noticed that often the carabiners did not appear to be of good quality, and were lacking in versatility. So I thought about my ideal leash, and I went out and designed it!

My leashes are awesome, and I am not telling you this because I am trying to sell you something. I am telling you this because it is true. I have been using these leashes for several years now and I have had no problems with them. I am proud of the quality and design. I stand by my product, and will happily repair or make any modification necessary after your purchase.

I make these leashes because I believe in what I am making. If I don't have what you are looking for please request a custom order, and I will order the necessary color, diameter, lashing, or type of carabiner.

Winston (my standard poodle) and I have really enjoyed the growth of outdoor dog. Not only because we go on extra walks after every sale, but because we get to interact with people from all over the world, and share something together.

We have also branched out to woodworking projects. The bottle openers are something I started doing to friends and family, and figured I could offer it on my shop as well. My wife Mary has become fascinated with wood burning which is how we brand the design on the wood for you. This bottle openers can be mounted on the wall or on a metal surface like a refrigerator or a car if you want to tailgate.

The leash organizers are similar, but not magnetized (unless that's what you want!). I can design anything, and built a custom project. If you send me a message we can work out the details.

We also do hand stamped dog tags. We stamp each letter, number, symbol, and design one at a time to make each tag! They take a little time to make, but are fun to customize!
