What's the creation process?
Each Dazzle Hound Collar is completely custom made in the USA by Jodie Snavely. After receiving your measurements and leather choice, I cut the leather to size from a large piece of English Bridle Leather. I then smooth out and bevel the edges to ensure a comfortable fit for your dog and shave the leather to fit the buckle you have selected. After dying the edges with water-based dye (entirely safe for your pet), I condition the leather to bring out its natural beauty and to protect the collar. Next comes the fun part. I use a template to mark your design and then hand punch the holes to set your hardware, jewels, stones, conchos, rivets and spikes. I then inspect the finished product and it is shipped to you.
How do I measure for my dog's collar?
Use a tape measure to measure around your dog’s neck. If you don’t have a tape measure, use a string, then measure the string on a ruler. Don’t make it too tight or too loose. If your pet’s collar measurement is between two sizes, it’s best to round up—if your dog has a 16 ½” neck, round up to 17″. That way you will have room for pet growth or fur thickness.
How long will it take to receive my collar?
It will take approximately 2-3 weeks as each collar is hand-made to order.
What are payment options?
Debit cards, PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Cash.
Are Dazzle Hound Collars guaranteed?
Yes. Your dog’s custom collar is guaranteed for life. If for any reason a stone, jewel or concho were to come loose, simply ship it back and I will fix it for free and ship it back to you for free. If your dog chews the collar and damages it, however, that’s not guaranteed. I want you and your pet to be perfectly satisfied!
How do I care for my collar?
Condition it periodically with a quality leather conditioner you would find in a shoe store. I use Fiebing’s Aussie Conditioner or Oakwood Leather Conditioner to preserve, soften and protect. These collars are meant to be worn daily and enjoyed.
Can I order a wrist cuff for myself?
Ladies and gentlemen, I would love to make you a cuff! Even a cuff to match your dog’s collar! Measure around your wrist the same as you would for your dog’s neck. Cuffs can be 1″ or 1 1/2″ width. Choose the collar type and design options you like and send me your request thru the Contact Us page. I’ll get back with you on pricing. Prices are approximately $20-$50.
