Dachshund Nola Reviews: The Sewing Dog and GIVEAWAY


     Hi, everyone! Today I'm doing a review and a giveaway from The Sewing Dog, an Etsy shop that makes collars, leashes, clean-up pouches and collar accessories. This shop owners are also going to giveaway one (1) collar of your choice to the winner of the giveaway, so let's get to it!

About the shop:

By dog lovers, for dog lovers!

We started The Sewing Dog back in 2010 with a small booth at our local farmers market. It was such a huge success, we expanded to offer our fun and unique doggie apparel online. We take pride in everything we sell, from the materials we select, to the crafstsmanship that goes into each and every dog collar. Everything in our shop is made by dog lovers, for dog lovers! We hope you and your four legged family member will love our products as much as we do!

All of our products are hand crafted in beautiful Bozeman, Montana.

We are also very proud to donate 10% of every sale to dachshund rescue organizations in need. As parents of a rescue dachshund and a special needs dachshund, the breed is very dear to our hearts. Each month we will feature a different rescue group to help. Please check our shop announcement to see who we are helping this month.

Thank you for shopping with us, woof!

Everything was wrapped all cute! Call me shallow, but cute wrapping paper/ribbons/ect  are things I like to see in a business.

     I picked the adorable Blue Baby Elephants leash, and Jennifer (the shop owner, and is such a nice person!) included not only the matching leash, but also a clean up pouch with Doxies on it and a super cool pink squeaky toy! I just love dealing with great customer service. Oh, and for the record, the squeak toy is my favorite thing! I haven't even destroyed it yet, and it's been almost.

OMD the flash! I'm horrified my "photographer" used the flash. Doesn't she know it washes you out? 

My toy, Momma.

     The shop makes all different sizes of collars, and have different leash widths to fit every pup! There's also tons of styles, so there's something for everyone.


Great customer service

Lots of choices

Fast shipping

Squeaky toy is still intact

Quick release buckle

Washable (collar, leash, waste bag holder, toy)

Shop owner has Dachshunds :D

10% of each sale is donated to Dachshund rescues, which is a huge plus in my book

I do wish the material of the collar and leash were a bit thicker

  1. OMD Nola, isn't that the cutest collar! Wow, they really do have great customer service. Look there, you even got a personalized note with your name on it! We checked out their site and have to say we love their material designs. Ok, here we go..... WE WOULD LIKE TO ENTER your give away and would pick the sausage dog design in the color green for Muffin. I thought I'd be nice and let her enter this time since she's never won a thing a day in her life.

    You're looking good girlfriend!

  26. Momma loves businesses like this! We wish them much success and enjoyed your wonderful review.

  27. Nola,

    Another fantastic review! You do such a good and fair wagging job of these reviews.


    The Sewing Dog is such a beautiful shop! I love the poopy pouch. And I, too, love that they wrap things all pretty and send you a little note.

    I would pick the following:

    A small sausage love collar in GREEN.

    I need to order a DOG CLEAN-UP POUCH. Or we'd love that instead of the collar. (So picky!)

    We would pick the DOG CLEAN UP POUCH in the "walk to the park" design. The shop is fabulous.

    You know I'm bicontinental, but I have an Idaho shipping address!

    And my email is my mom's ... idahobuzzy [at] yahoo [dot] com

    And we love you, because you are Nola the Fabulous.


  28. How adorable is that toy! And Nola obviously loves it. I need to find something like that here in Australia for Roy.
