Info and Policies
I work full-time outside the house. All emails are responded to as soon as possible, generally after 6pm EST, Monday through Saturday. I do not take phone orders. All orders must be received through the website and paid through paypal.
The martingale walking collars are constructed with nylon or polyester webbing *if* the collar is unlined. The nylon webbing used is smooth and soft and is fine for hounds with even the most sensitive of necks. If the webbing core is completely covered with fabric or topped with ribbon & lined with fleece or satin, polypropylene webbing is used. This kind of webbing is lighter and less bulky when fabric covered, but it still is strong enough to hold even the strongest hound. Since most of the wear on a martingale occurs on the control loop, any exposed(unlined)control loops are made with nylon webbing, as nylon has a slightly higher resistance to abrasion than the polypropylene. All hardware is either cast or welded nickel or solid brass.
Sweaters are hand-knit with acrylic yarns. All items come from smoke-free homes, but you may receive a stray greyhound hair :)
Care and cleaning:
Collars and sweaters can be hand or machine washed (including those with crystals) in cold water on gentle or delicate cycle in a lingerie bag or pillowcase. No bleach or harsh detergent. Do not spin, twist or wring. Re-shape and lay flat and air-dry only! Do. Not. Put. Collars. Sweaters. Or. Snoods. In. The. Dryer.
Using a soft tape measure (or use a string and then measure it with a ruler), measure three points:
A) circumference of the dog's head/face in front of the ears
B) circumference of the dog's head/ face in back of the ears
C) around the neck (where the collar will sit).
This collar slips on over the dog's head so you should allow at least 2 inches larger than the biggest head measurement.
If the largest measurement of your dogs head is 18" and the neck is 16", select a size large collar (adjustable from 16-21").
Greyhounds and *most* other large sighthounds take a size Medium. Smaller Whippets generally take a size Small.
Proper Collar Adjustment:
Collars: Slip the collar over your dog's head and slide it up to the narrowest part of the neck (just behind the ears). Pull up on the D-ring. The two metal slides should remain approximately 2 inches apart as they come together. If they touch, the collar is too loose. Be sure to fit and adjust your collar properly and inspect often to look for frayed material or loose threads!
The website listings of ready-to-wear sweaters will have measurements shown for hounds that the sweaters are intended to fit. Please do not purchase a sweater listed to fit a 28-30" chest if your hound's chest measures 32". Sweaters are not intended to stretch outside the given measurements. It is your responsibility to make sure your hound's measurements fit within the given size limits. Please do not hesitate to email me if you need help with sizing!
Generally, sales of sweaters and collars are final and non-refundable. Should there be a problem with your order, please contact me immediately upon receipt. Email notification to me regarding a request for an exchange, must be initiated within 5 days of receipt of order, no exceptions. If I agreed to accept an item for exchange, it will be for an exchange of a same or higher priced item only. If accepted, an exchange will be made one time only and is subject to a $10 exchange fee (include check or money order in the package with the collar). Purchaser bears the cost of return shipping with insurance and tracking. Returned items must be in original new un-used condition with no evidence of wear, with tags attached. Please measure your dog carefully or ask a member of your adoption group for assistance with proper collar fitting!!
Ordering and payment:
Payments are accepted through PayPal only. PayPal has purchase protection polices in place to protect both buyers and sellers. For more details, visit the
PayPal website and click on the link at the top of the page for "Security Center".
Ready-made items are shipped within 24 hours of receipt of credit card payment. Paypal e-checks must clear prior to shipment. If we accept a custom collar order, you will be given an estimate of how long it will take to complete your order when you are sent the paypal invoice.
Timely custom sweater orders *may* be possible, however, the time it takes to hank-knit one sweater is a lot longer than a collar, so your patience is appreciated. Email us for a schedule of what is currently in production.

Pre-made collar and knitted item purchases are shipped via the most cost effective way via USPS with delivery confirmation.
