How it all began....

This all began with the adoption of a bundle of joy that had endless energy. His name is Jack and he has been my partner in this endeavor. Okay, in truth, he just sleeps on the couch while I work, but still, he is very cute. I just attribute it to his age now, the boundless energy has subsided, he is a calm, yet still good looking GSP.

Since Jack is a good looking pointer, I wanted him to be stylish when we're out so I decided to make fun, bright, and affordable dog collars and leashes that I could change with the seasons.

I hope you find as much joy as Jack and I have!

Happy Playtime and Many Long Walks,
Ruthie and Jack

    I'm a very handsome German Shorthair Pointer who loves to run through fields, swim, and roll in anything that is dead and smells really me anyways. Look I found a bone!

ps. A martingale collar is NEVER meant to be used as a tie out collar.

Cancellations: not accepted

Please contact the seller if you have any problems with your order.


Payment can be made through PayPal or Direct Pay with Etsy

Please make sure your address on Etsy is up-to-date and matches your address on PayPal.

Cancellation must be requested within 24 hours of purchase.

*** Address Accuracy ***
Please ensure your address is correct, as I cannot change the shipping destination if the address on your order is incorrect once an item has been shipped.

Add-ons such as buckles or D-rings that were not initially ordered in the original purchase, must be purchased in a timely manor from the Accessory/Add-on Section, such as "Add a buckle to my Martingale" or "Add a D-Ring for my Tags". If items are not purchased in a timely manor (48 hours from initial purchase) then your initial order will be cancelled because you did not pay for the additional items you chatted me about and I am unable to complete the order.


DUE TO COVID-19 YOU MUST BE PATIENT WITH SHIPPING!!!! Items are taking longer to get to you, the USPS are closing and cleaning facilities and re-routing packages. Things are NOT normal right now, so please take a breath, and your package will eventually get to you.

****Processing Time****
Each collar is hand-made to order, so I usually ship between 6 to 13 business days.

***Shipping Options*****

Standard Shipping Option: USPS First Class Mail no change in processing time.

Priority Mail Option: Does not change processing time but does provide faster shipping from the USPS.

Platinum Service Option: This is will put you in front of other orders and reduce the processing time to less than 5 days and shipping will be upgraded to USPS Priority Mail. This is NOT a time line from ordering to door service. You are paying for a faster processing time and upgraded shipping.

***Shipping Remembers***
A shipping upgrade does not mean a faster processing time, unless you chose Platinum Service. There are NO Shipping guarantees. COVID-19 and increased shipping demand is stressing the system.

You may need to allow 24 hours for your item to show up on the USPS tracking system

Priority shipping delays caused by weather, inaccurate addresses, pandemics, or address changes are not the responsibility of me, the 3rd party shipper. I have zero control over the United States Postal Service.

***under current Cover-19 conditions, the USPS has 30 days to move your first class package****

*** Address Accuracy ***
Please ensure your address is correct. I cannot change the address delivery once the item has been shipped.

*See Return/Refund Policy

**If items are lost or the tracking map does not change, please let me know so I can submit a tracking request, but understand this tracking request, takes 5-7 business days for the USPS to respond to the request. If the request has come back "lost", don't worry, I'll make you a new collar and we'll try again.**

**If USPS says item was delivered and it wasn't, then one of two things most likely happened, they delivered it to a neighbor or there was a mail carrier sub and the item will come when you have your regular mail carrier. This practice is fading away as they increased their ship times, but it does happen from time to time. Please look to your neighbor(s) first, then contact your Post Master at your local USPS - they may have your package.

Additional policies and FAQs

Adjusting your Martingale Dog Collar:
Please use the adjuster slide to open the collar to the full length, then slip it over your dogs head and then pull it up behind the pup’s ears. For walking and training sessions, this is the point where you want to adjust the size of the collar.

You will adjust the collar, by moving the slider once again to make the collar smaller. Pull on the D-ring, and tighten the adjuster loop. The live rings, that do the work, should be at least two inches apart and should never touch.

If they touch, the collar is too loose and your pup will be able to slip out of it. When worn properly, the collar should fit loosely around the middle of the dog’s neck when there is no tension on it.

The Martingale and Half-Check Chain Collars are well suited as part of a positive reinforcement training method and behavior correction method. Both offer more control than a Buckle Collar and offer the trainer the ability to make corrections to behavior as well. The design of the the two loops work in conjunction so that the contraction of the martingale does not choke your dog like a choke chain. These collars are to be used for training and walking in the "heal" position. This is a training collar NOT an everyday collar.

Pro’s of the Martingale Collar:
* Provides excellent control over your pup for walking and training
* Safer corrections
* Difficult for dogs to back out of

Con’s of the Martingale Collar:
* Incorrect use can harm the dogs neck, this is not for tie-out situations
* Can be tricky to put on and take off because its a slip collar
* This is a training and walking collar only, it is not intended to be left on your pup unattended.

***Improper/Miss Use of Martingales****
* Used for tie outs - these are a choker and NOT used for this situation and may harm your dogs neck and break the collar.

* Used on retractable/long leashes - these are a choker and NOT intended to be used in this situation. This is a choker and may harm your dogs neck and a break the collar. If you allow your dog to "run out" to the end of the leash and pull, then you are miss using the collar and you may harm your dog's neck and break the collar. If this is your practice, then you need to be using a halter instead.

* Leaving the martingale training collar on your dog unattended. - these are choker collars and can seriously injure your pup if you leave them unattended. They can catch on something while you are away. This is a specialized training collar NOT an everyday collar.

* Never allow rough play with another dog while wearing- again, this is a training choker collar and can seriously injury your pup.

Collar Care & Washing Instructions:
Hand wash in a sink with lukewarm water and a few drops of liquid laundry detergent. Lie on a towel to air dry. Touch up with warm iron.
