The Swanky Hound!

Recommended Posts

I've loved collecting beautiful collars for my dogs for 20+ years and felt it was time to start making my own. The collars I make are limited slip collars (similar to a martingale) that are sturdy and look like jewelry on your hound. They are beaded and come in a wide variety of colors. Each collar is $20 and matching beaded tassels are an additional $2. Or, you can purchase just the beaded tassels by themselves. :)

 

I currently list all The Swanky Hound collars on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheSwankyHound/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel but hope to be getting my website up and going soon. Please check out my page and if you have any questions, I would love to hear from you. :nod

 

 

I'm now making tag collars! I don't keep these in stock but make them to order. I can make them in any color combo. $20 + shipping.

 

Here are a few tag collars I've made for reference:

They are lovely. I have 2 questions: 1. will you take requests for colors and 2. how sturdy are they?

Thanks everyone!

 

They are lovely. I have 2 questions: 1. will you take requests for colors and 2. how sturdy are they?

 

Yes, I take requests. :D I have quite a few different colored beads but if I don't have what you want, I will be happy to find the color(s) you'd like.

 

The collars are very sturdy. All three of our sighthounds have worn them for walks and they have held up wonderfully. Winnie is our whippet who pulls (and lunges at other dogs and bunnies :rolleyes: ) and all of hers have held together with no issues. Here's a photo of Winnie in her red foil bead collar (to get an idea of how they tighten):

For those not on Facebook, here's a link to my photobucket album that has all of my collars so far: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/gdogmom/library/Collars%20for%20sale?sort=9&page=1 (the tassels are in a sub-album of this album).

 

They are not in any particular order, and they are also not marked with a number or description, so if you see something you are interested in or have questions on, let me know which page it's on and I should be able to figure out which one you are referring to. Each collar has a size range (that is also not listed on photobucket) but if you would like to order any, just let me know the measurements around the largest part of your dog's head and directly behind the ears and I will make the right size for you dog(s).

 

Thanks again and I'm glad someone besides me likes these! :P

Do you post overseas? I'm looking for some tag collars for the girls.

 

Sure. :) The collars tighten similar to a martingale but I could probably make them with just one ring so they don't tighten.

Oh my, I love those. Please let us know what, where and when.

 

I'm in Fullerton, so if you're interested in seeing them in person, let me know.
