More new stuff, yes indeedy! But first, some feel good news… we’ve signed up as sponsors of Stafford Rescue Victoria for the next three years. They approached us when we were down in Melbourne at the start of June and we were happy to say yes. The last collar we donated to rescue raised over $450 when it was raffled off, so hopefully our donations will help raise some much needed funds for Stafford Rescue Victoria too. Details of their current raffle are here. It was arranged before we got on-board so there’s no prize from us there, but there are lots of other great prizes and it’s a really worthy cause, so check it out.
The regular Lunatic is finally up on the website. Isn’t it pretty?! This one is chestnut and silver with red reflectors. It’s being modeled by the very beautiful Eisha.
I showed you Nova the Stafford’s show set in Update #9. We’ve now added the Supernova to our website. Here it is in brown and aged brass being modeled by Gazza the agility wonder dog!
We’ve also brought out a small dog version of the Lone Ranger collar. Here it is in chestnut and silver being modeled by Ruby the Dachshund. You can see a lot more of her here.
I knew that Enzo and Mila, the Frenchies I photographed last year, were about to emigrate so I had to come up with some designs for them to model before they set off. First up is Enzo wearing The Bubbler in black and brass. It’s currently listed in the narrow collars section, but it’s available in any width.
And Mila’s wearing a 16mm [5/8"] Supernova martingale collar in brown and silver.
Good bye cuties. I’ve now added Hong Kong to the list of places I need to visit so I can see you both again!!
If you’re a “liker” of our Facebook page you might have seen Storm the German Shepherd wearing a brown, brass and amber version of this collar several weeks ago. This is the devilishly handsome Thunder in a burgundy, silver and red Nightowl martingale collar with a matching standard leash.
The low sun made the burgundy look very red. The shots on the left are a better representation of the actual colour.
Next we have the Lone Ranger martingale collar in black and silver, modeled by Hugo the Lab. Poor Hugo got teased terribly when I dropped a note in his owner’s letterbox asking if I could borrow him for a modeling assignment!
And finally, Boston the Bulldog in a wide brown and brass Decoder martingale collar. You’ll be seeing more of this slobbery chops soon as I did a full photoshoot with him.
We were asked to make a Stud Muffin martingale for a large Great Dane. His owner wanted one with no buckle as it didn’t matter if it was loose because her dog doesn’t need a lot of correction. They live in Queensland and I couldn’t find a dog the same size to model it before I posted it, so little Chopper had to step up to the mark again. He’s such a little trooper! Pictured also is a matching standard 6ft lead.
The majority of our martingales are available in narrow, regular and wide widths. If you don’t see the exact design that you want listed on the website just email us. These collars are available without buckles [as shown above], but they cost a bit more as they have a lot more decoration and therefore take more time to make. Non-buckle martingales need to be ordered by email.
