I am beyond excited to share with you a new product I've been working on for over a year now! Why a year?! Because you can't rush perfection and we worked endlessly to get the collars and leashes just how we wanted them to look. From sourcing custom made hardware, to going back and forth with packaging ideas, to say it took forever is an understatement. All collars come with a complimentary Hoot + Co tag featuring our owl logo! The tags are engraved, painted, and sealed with a Micro-Crystalline Wax Polish to prevent the paint from coming off throughout use. The tag is easily removable and can be used on keychains or other accessories.
At Hoot + Co we decided that leather is not an option for us. Although the collars + leashes look clean, simple, and are soft to touch like leather, we use a durable coated webbing. The products are 100% Vegan and something that I'm very proud to call a Hoot + Co product. Below you can find a list of all the benefits to our new collars and leashes!
Waterproof - In addition to being vegan, the collars and leashes are waterproof! Talk about convenience and fashion all in one! Get it wet and you can quickly dry it off with a towel or it can air dry within a few minutes. Get it muddy, a quick rinse and it looks brand new! Dried mud? No problem, just use a scrubber and some water + soap if needed and it should come right off. If you get something really sticky or permanent such as marker on the collar, a small dab of rubbing alcohol should take it right off.
Mold Proof + Stink Proof - This one speaks for itself. This material is so amazing you're gunna want a couple different colors!
Durable - The collars are durable and can withstand just about anything! Underneath the coating is a polyester based webbing just like most dog collars.
Fade Resistant - The coated webbing used is nearly fade resistant and should last you quite some time. I've been using one for a year already and it still looks brand new. The only thing we recommend is to not spray the collars with insect repellant containing DEET which is known to cause slight color changes and/or stain and may also leave the collar or leash sticky. If insect repellent is needed, an all natural or organic option is recommended.
Collars + Leashes will be available on April 22nd! Sizes currently available will be 5/8" and 1" widths. We currently have three different colors - Black, Caramel Brown, and Chocolate Brown (although if you watch our live sessions you may have heard of more colors coming). The hardware we offer is Antique Brass or Nickel Matte for the buckle option, both of which are custom made just for our products. A martingale option will be available as well, but currently only available in 1" and comes with a standard Shiny Nickel. Our martingales are also 100% stainless steel!
Depending on orders received, all orders containing ONLY collars or leashes are expected to ship within 3-5 business days!
