Summer colours

It’s been a rough week health wise – but I have finally managed to get a few collars in summer colours made.

This is Williams new collar in the seaside theme – Alfie ate the buckle off his old one!

 

 

Here is the selection so far – I will be listing them in the shop as soon as the camera battery has recharged and I can take photos.

Summer collar

This little darling has been custom made with the top loop a little longer because the dog has huge, fluffy ears and needs a bit of extra space to slip the collar on and off.

 

 

 

It has taken me ages to get my hands on gingham check in a 100% cotton – everything is poly cotton – or stupidly expensive.  I picked up this red – blue – yellow and mint and I will be making bandannas and collars – maybe even a couple of leads too.

So – who’s a funny shape then ;-)

A properly fitted martingale collar will work magic on a ‘puller’ – – but what if your dog has a tiny skinny neck – and a big head and all the ‘standard’ sizes won’t fit?

With all the best will in the world – no one is going to fit and release the collar EVERY single time you go for a walk – add in a wriggly, excited dog desperate to get out – never gonna happen.  Waaaaay too much of a job – then you won’t get the proper benefit of what the martingale should be doing – and you will just give up.

No problem here – we offer a bespoke service that will alter all the dimensions of the sections so that you can get a perfect fit – and still have the ease of just slipping the collar off and on over the head.

the posh dog clothing company custom made martingale collarsThis odd looking collar is for a young, hyper-active Bedlington terrier that has a really skinny neck because of all the work she does – but still carries the classic large head.

The standard proportions don’t work.  You can’t faff about with a hyper-active pooch – simple act and go is the only way!

The smaller space is her neck size!!

 

Yes we can!!!!

 

 

 

 

Fabric? – Hell yeah!!!!

Sometimes I get very dishartened with what I do – I don’t think that people realise that I can hear what they say when they are outside my shop – but I hear
– ‘gosh – that’s fabric – won’t last any time’
– ‘really – fabric collars – how silly’
– ‘that’s a funny collar – pretty – but won’t work’
– ‘lovely – but not suitable for my dog’
– ‘soooo not strong enough’
– ‘far too pricy’ (seriously!!)

Then I get a customer that wants to understand what it’s all about – and gets it!

This week (on Tuesday actually) I explained to a customer how my martingale collars really work  – and they took the gamble.  I took 2 totally out of control springers out of the harnesses that were causing their owner a nightmare (and doing nothing for them!) – and fitted them with matringale collars.

Saturday – she came back for the matching leads.

And she said – – – Soooo much better – and – ok – not perfect (who is) – but we can walk down the street properly now -as opposed to being – – – p-u-l-l-l-l-l-l e-d – – – in every which way direction !!!

OK – fabric does not last forever – emmm – neither does leather.  As  guideline –  my Henry is really tough on his collars and his look really shabby after 3 months or so – but than I don’t look after them – the strength does not deteriate – they just look shabby, dirty and uccky – still work perfectly well though!

But the system works folks – a well fitted Martingale collar will help you regain control over your unruly muts

Talk to me – try it out for yourselves

Martingale collars

Hot off the sewing machine – I am getting really good at these Martingale style collars now!

2014-10-03 01.57.07

This is the large size – fits up to a neck size of 22″ and is 2″ wide.

 

I have ‘tweaked’ the way the D ring on the sliding section is fixed and I am much happier with it now.

2014-10-03 01.57.17

The largest size is £14 – it takes a lot of fabric and all the hardware is big and chunky.

 

I am currently working out the size chat so that I can make these right down to chihuahua size.  I am always getting asked for tiny collars and I can’t find any tiny buckles that I am happy with the quality and strength – so this may be a way round it.

Fabric Martingales are wonderfully soft and kind to the dogs neck – and with all the layers of fabric and interfacing I use they are surprisingly strong!

More details will follow as I do the math 😉
