Best Dog Collar

Posted by Glamour Mutt on 6/9/2015 to Dog Collars
With a sea of formidable options, choosing the best dog collar can be a daunting task. The material you choose is often the most important consideration. Smaller dogs tend to prefer softer, lightweight fabrics like ultrasuede, cotton, or calf leather, while big dogs have the weight to sustain a weightier material, such as bridle leather. Small dogs, less than 15 lbs will do best with collars of ½” width, and bigger dogs have a much wider assortment of widths (5/8” +) to choose from depending on the breed (and therefore neck girth). The general rule of thumb is that you should be able to fit 2 fingers between the neck and the collar, to insure the collar is tight enough to not slip off, but not so tight that it is uncomfortable. Fur length is also an important consideration, as for dogs with longer hair will find ‘rolled’ leather collars an excellent choice to prevent tangles uncomfortable fitting. Petite dogs and dogs with special needs, and those that then to pull, may find a harness is more suitable than a collar. A harness is often the best choice for teacups and breeds less than 10 lbs, as the weight distribution helps to prevent future collapsed trachea issues. The amount of pressure a dog pulls should always be taken into consideration as stronger thicker materials will mean a longer lasting collar which can be used for years to come.

Dog Sweaters

Posted by Glamour Mutt on 11/10/2013 to Dog Clothes

‘Tis the season… for chilly dogs to get warm!  As the cold months come upon us, you may find that your little pooch is increasingly reluctant to charge out the door, into the chilly weather outside.  Chances are good that it isn’t because they no longer wish to greet the mailman, but they are just feeling the winter temperatures.  While some breeds can simply grow a thicker, longer coat, most dogs will find a sweater or coat the perfect solution to their troubles.  Dog sweaters come in a variety of materials.  Among the most popular materials are wool, cashmere, and alpaca.  Our wool sweaters, by Chilly Dog, are handknit in Peru, using vegetable dyes, making them the most eco friendly sweaters.  Cashmere sweaters, by Canine Styles, are the ultimate luxurious solution to the winter cold, and are soft and lightweight enough to be appropriate to spring temperatures as well.  Alpaca sweaters, by Alqo Wasi, are ideal for dogs with sensitive skin, as they are hypoallergenic, and are even warmer and stronger than wool.  No matter what fabric your dog prefers, you are sure to find the perfect fit and style with our enormous selection of designer dog sweaters for all dog sizes!

Just when you thought you couldn’t add any more bling to your dogs wardrobe- Susan Lanci Designs once again has outdone herself. New for Winter 2013, the Crystal Rocks Collection features a dazzling array of Swarovski Crystals in pebbled shape design. In this collection you can find the matching Crystal Rocks collar, leash, and the classic Tinkie Harness.

We found the stunning collar can be worn simply as a necklace, and combined with either of the harnesses for a glamorous look. Also new for Winter, we have new ultrasuede colors! Check out: ‘Buttnernut’ (a warmer, richer version of ‘Fawn’), Platinum Cheetah, Pink Cheetah, and (our favorite), ‘Violet’ (which is a bolder, cooler version of ‘Ultraviolet’). All of Susan’s new designs are available in these new colors. PS: Don’t forget to add the matching hair bows to complete your dogs sparkling new look!

Ultrasuede Dog Harnesses and Collars

Posted by Glamour Mutt on 7/7/2012 to Dog Harnesses
Ultrasuede is a popular fabric choice for dog harnesses, collars and leashes. What’s so great about this fabric? Dogs love the softness of the fabric because it’s comfortable, lightweight and best of all- easy to clean (so they can roll in the grass or play in the mud without worrying they might ruin their favorite collar or harness!) This highly durable fabric is resistant to piling and fraying, so it’s a worthy investment for years of enjoyment. In fact, tests show it stands up to 200,000 Wyzenbeek double rubs! With hundreds of beautiful colors to choose from, you can rest assured the color you select will also last, as the all of our Ultrasuede products are colorfast (that means the colors won’t fade over time). 

All of the items by Susan Lanci Designs are made exclusively with Ultrasuede fabric. The most popular colors of Ultrasuede are Puppy Pink (baby pink), Tiffy Blue (tiffany blue), Cheetah, and Perfect Pink (hot pink). The new summer shades for summer 2012 include Bimini Blue, Electric Orange, Electric Pink, Platinum and Kiwi. Susan Lanci also offers matching ultrasuede leashes for almost all of her designs. Some of the collars are also available in 5/8” (wider than the normal small ½” width), which is perfect for larger dogs that also enjoy the soft comfort of durable Ultrasuede fabrics.

Dog Costumes

Posted by Glamour Mutt on 6/26/2012 to Dog Clothes
Dog costumes are a fun way to celebrate holidays. Whether it’s the fourth of July, or Halloween, costumes for dogs are very popular and appropriate for pups of all sizes and ages. Of course, everyone wants his or her dog to win the unofficial best costume prize, and we think the best costumes are the ones that draw from your dog’s size or unique personality. Sometimes the funniest costumes are the ones that poke fun of your dog’s small or large size. For instance, a tiny Chihuahua looks extra hilarious in an eye catching red devil costume, while a large (normally intimidating-looking) Doberman will look adorable in a cute bunny or fairy costume. Princess costumes for dogs are a popular choice for girl dogs of all sizes, and they bring out the diva in every canine. Superhero costumes bring out the bold side in male dogs, and they love the attention a cute costume brings them! If you are looking for a gender-neutral costume, consider a bumblebee, monster, or even a gnome! This years new Wizard of Oz series are sure to be a hit (we especially love Tin Man and Dorothy!) We suggest ordering your special festive wear weeks ahead of time to make sure you have the perfect fit. When you receive your order, don’t wait till the day of the event to put the costume on your pup, have them try it on right away to make sure you don’t need a smaller or larger size. If it’s your dog’s first time wearing any type of clothing, make sure to give him or her lots of positive reinforcement to make their experience as pleasant as possible- some extra treats will do the trick! ;)
