Product Info

I release a large collection about once a quarter, but sometimes release a few items each month. Most bandanas and Mouse Ears styles are LIMITED, and are typically not restocked once they sell out (with a few exceptions). Waterproof collars  and leashes are always in stock. Vests are always in stock.

If you want to be the FIRST to know when the EXACT release date and time of each collection will be, then sign up for my newsletter at the bottom of every page.You’ll get news of the launch before any social media platforms!

Yes! A size chart is included in the last photo of each product, or in the actual menu for size choices.  Please note these are only estimates. For the best fit, please make sure to include your dog’s measurements (especially for vests). 

Our bandanas are designed to be rolled from the top down 1-3 times (depending on the size of your dog) then tied once and snapped. If you need the bandana to be tighter around your dog’s neck you can tie the bandana twice before snapping it.

Hand wash in cold water (may add a little detergent and rise clear if desired) and lay flat to dry to avoid shrinking. May iron if needed. 

Swish your product around a bucket of soapy water, rinse clean and air dry. For stubborn areas use a gentle wet cloth, rub with soap and rinse clean. For hardware specific cleaning directions see below. 

Important: The majority of our waterproof product are made ONLY with stainless steel or solid brass hardware AND Chicago screws. The ONLY exceptions are the buckle and adjuster piece on 1″ side release collars, the adjuster piece on classic martingales, and the clasps on our keychains and e-collars. These are the only items containing nickel, so please follow the cleaning directions  below for your specific hardware. 

Stainless Steel: STOP! Make sure you are not cleaning your plated nickel side release collar with these instructions. Go to the last section if you are. Now, if you to clean your stainless steel hardware follow these instructions.

There are a few ways to clean Stainless Steel, but here’s one way with ingredients found in the home. Mix one tablespoon baking soda with 2 cups of water to make a paste (adjust water as needed). Rub the mixture on the tarnished/rusted areas with a cloth. Rinse clean. You can repeat and let the mixture sit for up to 30 minutes if necessary then rinse clean.

Solid Brass: STOP! Make sure you are not cleaning your plated brass side release collar with these instructions. Go to the next section if you are. Now, if the SOLID  brass hardware on a product starts to look a little dingy or greenish, it might be time for a deep clean. 

There are a few ways to clean brass, but here’s one way with ingredients found in the home. Combine the juice of half a lemon with one teaspoon of baking soda. Make a paste and apply it with a soft cloth. Let it sit for up to 30 minutes, and rinse with warm water, and dry. Can be repeated if necessary.   

Nickel: Our products were redesigned in March 2020, and ONLY the buckle and adjuster piece on 1″ side release collars, the adjuster piece on classic martingales, and the clasps on our keychains and e-collars contain nickel. To clean these parts of our products, follow the directions below.

Take  1 tsp salt and 1/2 cup white vinegar. Add just enough flour to make a paste. Rub a thin coating on the areas, let sit for up to 10 minutes, then rub gently off and rinse clean.
