About

Celebrating the Love for Our Best Friends of the Canine Variety

You Had Me at Woof began with my love for dogs. Actually, I adore dogs. They are the most special of creatures, in my book. My volunteer work at SQ Rescue (an animal rescue) in South Carolina inspired me to incorporate dogs into my work. While spending time with a Great Dane named Duke at one of their events, I formed a deep connection. “He was like an old soul. I felt so safe with him. I would have taken him home with me that day, but I lived in a shoebox of an apartment!” I have a background in classical academic painting, which eventually led me to begin designing dog collars. For my couture painted dog collars, I use a special paint that is lightfast, colorfast, and durable. The end result is a very durable work of art in the form of a dog collar. They can get sopping wet! They also conform to safety standard ASDM-D436.

I want You Had Me at Woof to be a shop where customers can find something unique and special for their dog. I make everything by hand in my Georgia studio, using the the finest materials. I only make products that I feel good about using on my own dogs, and I hope that you will love and enjoy my products as much as I do. You Had Me at Woof was inspired by a the love of a rescue dog. I return the love by donating a portion of every order to dog rescue organizations, including Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, PETA, the ASPCA, the Humane Society International, and the Soi Dog Foundation. Shopping at You Had Me at Woof should be a treat; I absolutely love the idea of a customer receiving their order and finding great joy inside of the box, like receiving a gift from an old friend.

Shipping
Turnaround Time
Each item is handmade (except for balloons) and may take 1 week (collars and leashes) to 3 weeks (neckties and bow ties, little dachshunds) to complete. Engraving adds an additional 5-7 business days. These times may be extended around holidays. Please contact me before placing your order if you need it by a certain date, so that I can let you know if I am able to fulfill your request; thanks! Delivery times vary depending on destination. USA: 3-5 days. Canada: 1-2 weeks. Overseas: 2-4 weeks.

Shipping Upgrades
Please contact me if you would like to upgrade to a faster shipping method. If your order will be shipped via FedEx or UPS, it will be delivered with no signature required, unless you specify otherwise.

Orders shipped internationally
Shipments to Canada or other International shipments will be shipped via First Class International mail. Since the cost of shipment tracking for international shipments is so expensive, I do not include this service for international orders. Please contact me if you would like to pay for this extra service. Because there is no way for me to track delivery on international packages, I will not assume responsibility for lost or stolen packages shipped internationally. I do, however, include the delivery confirmation number for the package as proof of shipment, so the item can be tracked while it is still in the U.S. I am not responsible for customs fees charged for packages delivered outside of the U.S.
Additional policies and FAQs
Packaging
Collars will be shipped 2 collars per box, unless individually boxed collars are requested.

Buckle Recommendation
Please note that if you have a large dog or a dog that tends to pull, I recommend an aluminum buckle, not plastic. In addition, I do not recommend walking dogs that pull without a harness, as a collar being pulled on a dog's neck can damage their trachea.

Engraved Buckles
Engraving orders will be engraved as submitted and will not be cancelled or refunded. If no font is specified for engraving, the font displayed on buckle in the original listing will be used.

Balloons
Like other balloons, our balloons only stay filled with helium for a few days.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

We welcome custom orders! Please send us a message for more information.

Sizing details

To find your dog's size, we recommend measuring around your dog's neck with a string, leaving two fingers of extra room, and then measure the string. Our small dog collars are sized a little differently than our big dog collars, due to the difference in buckle dimensions.

If you are unsure about which size to order, please feel free to contact us. We can also custom-size each collar for a perfect custom fit.

Care instructions

Dog Collars and Leashes, Necktie Collars, Bow Tie Collars, and Treat Pouches: Hand-wash in cold water using gentle detergent, lay flat to dry.

Dog Collar Flowers: Spot clean with a 1:5 ratio of gentle detergent and cold water.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All of our dog collars and leashes arrive in a charming boutique box that's ready to give.

Grosgrain vs. Woven Trim Dog Collars

Our dog collars are made with either grosgrain trim or woven trim. Grosgrain trim is a polyester trim characterized by its ribbed appearance. Images are thermally transferred onto the trim, allowing for the tiniest of details to be captured in the design. Because it is so strong, grosgrain was traditionally used throughout history in the hems of clothing. It is also used in millinery.

Woven trim is also made from polyester. Woven on a loom, the design for this trim is incorporated into the weave. Because the designs are essentially made from fiber, there is some limitation on the size of the images being woven into the trim.

Whether you choose grosgrain or woven trim, both are extremely durable and offer superior fade resistance.
