Hey Folks,

I'm really quite new here. I hand make collars and leads, I have many examples on my site, and will also do custom work. Somethings I dont have pictured on my site, things I am currently working on include, 5 point adjustable harnesses in single ply, working/aggitation collars with the handle, and police/mil-spec style collars which will be 2 - 3 ply and hand stitched with the tongue feeding through the "D" and then the buckle. Anything else you dont see you may be interested in, feel free to get a hold of me, either e-mail or I'm always available to talk on the phone. All my contact info is at the top of my leather page;

I recently added a "customer's photos" page, you can see some of my finished work on dogs where it belongs and not just my goofy pics, LoL! But I'll go ahead and put some pics in here anyway; The last pic is of my boy Judge...

I also do some tooling and lettering, and have access to many different styles of hardware...

Thank you very much for taking a look!

He's making Inara a 1 1/2" oxblood ( :drool: ) collar with the d-ring in the back. I'm very excited!

Liz, I have a collar here real similar to yours, real deep Ox-Blood and brass... I wil try to get a couple of pics to post for you. The biggest difference is it's a 2" collar, tapered down to 1" at the tongue and buckle. It is going to a pitbull, a moderate puller, and is narrower under the neck so as not to distribute all the force over 2".

I have read some of your blog and I am honored to be making a collar for Inara. Thank You...

I wanted to post a couple of pics for you, Liz... This will give you an idea, but not exactly. In the pictures, I have two of the Ranger Collars, the other is a really deep ox-blood with brass. You may be able to see how it tapers on each end, from 2" to 1". Inara's will be 1.5", but will still have the 1" "D" on the back, and all will be sized down to match.

Brad sent me a pic of my collar-in-progress - look at the rivets he's using! They're girly!

Thank you folks for the kind words and compliments...

Real quick, wanted to say the site is being updated as often as I'm able, and with a couple of links I like also.

I have added links to my FaceBook albums which contain alot of pics I dont have on my site. All my info is public so you should be able to view it easily.

http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/album.php?aid=2012526&id=1085205913
http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/album.php?aid=2013039&id=1085205913

And I wanted to mention my secret, my wife, Jenny. For those I have talked to on the phone, you have heard my kids in the background or sometimes my baby up close in the phone. I also consult with my wife constantly. If I am reputable, if my customer service is notable, if I process orders quickly and maintain contact to update those I am working for, if my orders ship in a reasonable time frame... It is because of my wife. I run ideas past her, designs, and consult her on design touches/elements. Many times she'll say definitely one over another. Sometimes slow down and make sure He/She wants something like what I'm trying to do. Other times she'll say to scrap it and count it as a loss, start over...

Just lettin y'all know where I'm coming from, she deserves far more credit than she ever gets. And this is how I know to thank her...

It only takes a few minutes to set up, its actually really cool, and another distraction to devour what free time you may have! :dance:
