The earthdog Hemp Martingale Collar was one of my favorite dog products of 2007, over at TheGreenists.com. And you know what? It’s still one of my favorite dog products. Argo has had his collar since July of 2007 and it’s still in fantastic shape!
We’re such big fans of earthdog, that when we adopted Stella we got her an earthdog collar too. Argo has the Dietrich, and Stella has the Astrid, if you’re curious.
Made from hemp, these collars are super durable, resist smells, and wear nicely. They’re machine washable, but I can’t say I wash them very often, since they don’t seem to get very dirty and they don’t pick up that doggie smell.
Dave and Kym Colella started earthdog fourteen years ago, when they realized that the homemade collars they created for their dogs could have a broad appeal.
“with your support we continue to strive to create unique, eco-conscious products that dogs and people alike will love. hemp, with its amazing versatility, has enabled us to create an entire product line of eco-friendly, durable goods that we are proud to offer. we gather our inspiration from our pack, 15 strong, and they never let us down. they’re all rescues from various walks of life and its misfortunes, and one way or another, have found their way to us. you’ll find their names on our collar patterns and their images throughout our line (you’re also likely to hear them barking when you call us).
at the end of the day, the cornerstone of our company remains the love of our dogs and the enrichment they add to our lives. we’re once again reminded who and what we are: a family with a family business. we trust that the dogs in your life will enjoy these offerings as much as ours do.”
Each collar is named after a special pup, and you can meet the dogs behind the collars here.
earthdog has been so kind to donate a Reilley Martingale “Rescued Dog” Decorative Hemp Collar to the #DogKarma Prize Pack!
It’s pictured above as an adjustable collar, so below is a photo of what the martingale style looks like.
