Hound Haberdashery | About Us
Greetings, Haberdashery friends!
Thanks so much for visiting our shop. We proudly offer some of the most well-crafted and beautifully designed martingale and buckle collars available. We love what we do, and we strive to provide the best possible experiences for our customers and their furry canine pals.
For those who don't know me, I'm Amanda, founder and owner of The Hound Haberdashery®. I was very fortunate to discover my collar-making passion shortly after adopting my first retired racing greyhounds in 2008 (that's me frolicking in the waves with my first greyhound, Riley). Looking for affordable alternatives to some of the designer martingales available at the time, I began sourcing fabrics and ribbons from across the globe to fashion unique collars for my dogs. I quickly fell in love with my new creative pastime, and with the encouragement of friends, family members, and even friendly passersby, I decided to turn my hobby into a business venture, launching my first online collection on Etsy in June 2010.
Since then, I've worked hard to build my company, expanding product lines, reaching out to my wonderful customers through social media and special events, and establishing relationships with rescues across the country. Recently, I welcomed another very talented seamstress, Shawna, to the business in March 2016. Shawna has been a huge help with production and adds her own creative flair to everything she makes. Moving forward, we will continue to grow the company, adding to our offerings both here and on Etsy, and working to fulfill The Hound Haberdashery's three-part mission:
- to contribute to animal welfare and rescue
- to provide excellent, personalized customer service
- to offer top-quality pet products at affordable prices
We welcome all customers (and potential customers!) to contact us with questions or to share feedback about our site or products. Your support allows us to do what we love, and we are always very happy to hear from you.
Interested in wholesale or fundraising opportunities for your 501(c)3 rescue? Certified non-profit rescues are welcome to contact us for more information about our wholesale offerings and/or to enroll in our ongoing rescue donation program, which earns rescues 15% of its members' purchases here or through our Etsy site.
