If you've followed our blog for a while, you may have noticed that we have quite a varied collection of collars here for the Greyhounds. Morgan has acquired a small assortment of her own collars, as well. Okay, I'll even admit that I actually own a t-shirt that says "Collar Addict" on it. So, you can imagine my excitement when we were asked if we would be willing to do a review for Sirius Republic and share their collars with you.
The collars are all handmade using cotton fabrics, nylon webbing and welded metal fittings. The welded metal is one thing that we look for in collars, since it's less likely that you'll have an accident that results in a loose dog. They are triple stitched, as well, which helps to keep the collars lasting longer. They offer martingale collars, buckle collars and quick release martingales in 1.5 inch, 1 inch and .75 inch widths.
We really liked the cute, whimsical patterns that they offer on their collars. A lot of our readers have asked us about finding holiday collars and collars with cute patterns. Sirius Republic is a good place to find them. I had looked at the website when we were asked to do the review and I had my eye on a couple of the patterns. I was lucky enough that we got several of the ones I had my eye on and they are extremely cute in person. They are also very well made. I looked them over and I would definitely feel safe going out with our girls in the collars. They are also not terribly expensive, so if you're like us and you like having collars for different holidays and seasons, you can afford them and still have money left over for kibble for you and the dogs. Actually, if you spend over $35, they offer free shipping. They aren't lined collars, but the webbing is very soft, so if that is important to you, know that you might want to save them for occasions when you're going out and about or having company over. They're so cute that you might not want to take them off your dogs, though!
I have a feeling we may be placing an order for a few things from them ourselves in the near future. Another thing we liked about this company is that they offer the Rescue Partner Program, which is a cool way to help out rescue groups. Shopping with a company that has compassion for rescue definitely makes us happy! You can find them online and on Facebook if you're interested in ordering. We were definitely impressed by what we've seen of them!
