Geesh Erika!


Your killing me here! :hp Love them! :hp

Chessie still only has one neck! Should start buying a bigger size and put them around her body? :gig

I usually get collars with brighter colors but both my son and I love Icicle and Hot Chocolate! How would they look on a Parti dog? Think these would show up enough on Chess?

What color is Chessie's neck? I love icicle and winter smoke. I've decided to try winter smoke in narrow. I think it will look good on Ava's black neck, but not so much Abby's poka dot neck :gig I'm afraid it would disappear. I just sent my order in and can't wait to get them.

What does having one neck have to do with how many necklaces a girl needs? :gig

I love the snowman collar; however, with both of them having "patterned" necks it would be hard to see.

Debbie,

Chess is like Abby but with less black. Her neck is white with lots of ticking. She does have one section on the side of her neck that is completely black... if it is trimmed right it looks exactly like she's wearing a black bandanna.

Winter Smoke is gorgeous too! I flip/flopped between that and Icicle as a favorite. A narrow will be stunning on Ava! Since your going to be getting it soon could you try it on Abby and let me know if it blends too much?

As for having too many necklaces for one neck..... frankly I'm with you.. .never too much bling. But DH gives me "the lOOk" when I mention getting more collars.... naturally I've long stopped mentioning them. :gig But unfortunately he has eyes and notices when I've gotten more. :roll

Deborah... I like that one too! We'd get good use out of that one, with how long our winter lasts!

My thought is because it has so much solid blue that it will show up well even with Chessie's ticking. :dk

Lisa I will let you know how the winter smoke looks on Abby. I do think will will be good on Ava. I don't think the icicle would work on either of my girls. I DO believe snowman would be good for any color neck. I got Abby one only with red and white beads

I wish I could use these beautiful collars on my pups but we have to use the martingale collars on them because they pull so much.
Erika, is there any way you can make a martingale collar with the beads being on the widest part and use a chain on the pulling part? Right now the ones we have on them are 1/2 inch wide nylon adjustable with a chain in between the ends as shown in the picture below. We use the one like the picture for Sadie because of her long hair and we use the chain center for the boys.
Just a thought because I know I'm not the only one to use the choker type collar, but would love the choice's your collars offer in size and design. Because Sadie our sheltie has a smaller head and wider neck these collars are the only one's we can safely use on her to keep her from slipping out.
If you could make them in the wider collar and chain how much would you charge?
Thanks for your time.
Dawn

We got our new collars and let me tell you, this is the prettiest "batch" yet. I LOVED them all. Thank you Erika.

Ladies and gents, the snowman is to die for. I changed the color for Christmas, and it is absolutely incredible!

I'm thinking I will need another of the snowman collars.

I'm in Washington State right now, so no pics, but I promise when I get home to post some.

Lisa, I will get a pic of Abby in the smoke narrow. It is really pretty. I was heading out to the airport when the mail came and ONLY had a chance to open them.

Dawn, you will be extremely happy with Erika's martingales. I have three of them, each in a different pattern, and have used with all my boys during training classes. I keep them especially for class and they know when I put them on it's time to work. All other martingales pale in comparison. (just my personal review and opinion)!

p.s. be sure to check with Erika on the correct way to measure. It's different from the regular line.

:paw :hp :paw

Dawn Aussie pulls like a lil bugger when he walks too, He still wears his Erika collar everyday we just use the nose haltie on him so he walks better. He walks like a dream with the haltie on for some reason he hasn't figured out if he walks nice without the haltie he doesn't have to wear it. :roll

Erika-when you can figure out how to put letters and numbers on the collars for dogs name and phone number I will take 3. I love these collars and would love to have some, but ID on the collars is more important to me. Please let me know if you ever can find letter and number beads-even just the number beads, I can live with no name.

And for inquiring minds, yes, I also have ID tags hanging from the collar, I just like the number on the collar just in case.

You can purchase number and letter beads and have Erika make a one of a kind collar for each.

There are letter and number beads that work. I have just chosen not to offer them because the cost would be quite high. The amount of sorting and waste makes them non-profitable for me unless I charge quite a bit more for them. If are interested anyway, send me a message and I will quote you a price.

If you would like your collars to arrive before Christmas, order them before Saturday, December 17th.
