I often see a dog with a nylon rope for a dog lead – the sort of rope people use for a trailer tie down. It has numerous knots in it and I’m sure it cuts into the dogs throat when it goes for a walk because the dog likes to pull heavily on the lead.
Another dog I see has a big studded dog collar and I wonder how comfortable it would be for the dog. Surely the long studs would stick into it while it scratched itself or just be uncomfortable to properly rest it’s head on the ground because the studs are so long it would hold the neck up and out of position.
I see tatty, ripped, boring, falling apart dog leads and dog collars on dogs everywhere. My favourite off-beat dog collar was a t-shirt that needed to be used when the half chewed lead finely snapped while they were on an adventurous walk.
Little do they know they are my inspiration to change the boring dog collar culture!
I love Leroy and Madison’s dog collars being a talking point at the dog park. I mix up my dog collars and people have asked me how many I have. Being the Creative Designer for Leroy Madison I could basically have a different dog collar for every day of the week for both Leroy and Madison.
I enjoy seeing peoples reaction to the dog collars. Some admire from afar and others have to get in for a closer look, almost as though they can’t believe that a dog collar could be so beautiful.
I am proud to say Leroy Madison has started a quiet revolution in the dog park. I’m seeing more and more of our designs on dogs. I often walk into a conversation at the dog park about the lovely dog collars the dog owners have. I smile quietly to myself and know the boring dog collar culture is finally starting to change. Bring it on I say! A world of beuatifully designed high quality pet products that nurture our pets and match our lifestyle choices.
