Martingale Collars - not JUST for Greyhounds anymore
Spruce up your Pug's wardrobe with custom made collars!!
Martingale Dog collars are also known as Greyhound Collars or Humane Choke Dog Collar. The Martingale Dog Collar was designed for Sighthounds because their necks are larger than their heads and they can often slip out of buckle collars. These collars have gained popularity among many other breed owners in the recent past with many trainers now recommending them instead of choke chains or choke collars. These collars are fitted to the exact size of the dog's neck when the Dog Collar is pulled closed. Properly fitted, the collar will be comfortably loose when not in use.
We will custom make a Martingale Collar for YOUR dog. We have listed some of the fabrics we have, but ANY fabric you find online we will buy and make your collar with. Collars take 2 - 4 weeks to be delivered and we ship flat rate priority mail.

All about Yorkshire Terriers
And some wonderful products featuring them.
The Yorkshire Terrier, or Yorkie as it is nicknamed, is a member of the AKC (American Kennel Club) Toy group. This is a long haired terrier who has a distinctive blue and tan coat. According to registrations, this is the second most common dog in the United States in both 2006 and 2007, trailing closely behind the number one dog, the Labrador Retriever.
The Yorkie originated in Northern England, in Yorkshire, originally bred to kill mice and rats. It was introduced to the United States in 1872 and became a popular pet in the Victorian Era.
The Yorkie is described as playful with a certain boldness for a small dog. These dogs are also intelligent and independent. They make a loving pet and companion.
The death of a pet is very difficult. We have just the way to help the memory of your pet live on in your heart and in your house. We have special Rainbow Bridge designs that we will personalize with your beloved pet's photo and name. See our samples here: Rainbow Bridge Gifts.
