Klise Dogs is, like I said, an Etsy shop that sells cool, fashionable dog collars. I'll get to the review in just a bit, but first here's a bit about what the shop owner had to say about herself:
My name is Sydney Klise. I live and work in a small town in central Iowa.
Like many young people these days, I went to college right after high school. Not knowing what I wanted to do with my life I kept going to school, hoping it would hit me and after 3.5 years it did. I LOVE dogs! I wanted to work with them for the rest of my life. That fall I attended Triple Crown Academy in Texas. I opened Klise Dog Training that fallowing spring after graduation.
After spending the summer enjoying group classes and private lessons, I choose to expand my business by going to grooming school. I attended Wisconsin School of Professional Pet Grooming. I worked a few different grooming parlors before opening my current shop in September of 2011.
That same year I had my life taken over by my lovable Ren. She is a Bernese Mountain Dog born 1/28/11. With her being my first girl I wanted to give her a lovely collar, so I went out and ended up spending $40!! But she was my baby so I was okay with it. As she grew I wanted more collars for her, but at $40 a pop there was no way I could afford it. That's when I decided to make my own. I wanted to bring a great product at a great price to everyone. After a few trials and errors I finally have the collars where I want them.
I have also now added Tiny collars due to the addition of my devilishly sweet Papillon, Rau. She weights in at 5 lbs and has such a small neck! So, now here we are! I love every minute of it.
Each collar is made with high quality nylon webbing, a heavy D ring, and a quick release buckle that is contoured. The ribbon is jacquard ribbon.
Here are a view of my favorite collars Klise Dogs (in addition to the one I chose):
I chose the beautiful "Ava" collar to review. Here's what I thought:
|I love when things are prettily wrapped.|
The "Ava" collar comes in two widths, 3/4" (which is the one I have) and 1". The 3/4" comes in the sizes Small: 8-14" and Medium: 12-18". The 1" comes in sizes Small: 8-14", Medium: 12-18", Large: 16-22" and Extra Large: 20-28".
I really liked this collar! It's cute, fashionable, durable and girly without being obnoxious.
Soft, for nylon
The buckle is very easy to release
Seems sturdy, but I'm not walked on a collar and I don't generally pull
Good customer service
3 different widths; 3/4", 1" and 1.5"
The shop only offers collars, and I'd like to see leashes and possibly harnesses
Overall, I liked the collar and would recommend them to my furiends. Head over to Klise Dogs and tell em Nola sent ya!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
