Re: Who wants this awesome leather in a martingale collar?

Just email me if you do with his head and neck size :) A no-concho white martingale out of that belt would be $30 plus S&H :) I believe I have a plain white leather belt up in the stock pile as well :)

working dog collar

I just finished this collar. It's made from a gorgeous, thick leather, about 1.5 inches wide. Note the triple layer beneath the thick D ring. This is a simple, sturdy collar with the placement of the D Ring designed to withstand hard pulling (and the triple layer acts as a backup in case, at any poi...

Re: Insurance

Welcome. I would not buy such a policy because my present HO insurance company covers dog bites. But if I was putting a limit and a premium on a standalone policy, I'd say a $300,000 limit and anywhere from $200-$400/year (with the amount determined by size of dog and discounts for obedience trainin...

Who wants this awesome leather in a martingale collar?

Went shopping for new leathers to make belts. This is one of my favorites from the most recent procurement. Very high quality leather, beautiful pattern. Only one like this. Who wants it custom made into a martingale for $40 plus S&H? http://i117.photobucket.com/albums/o66/chakodogs/collar%20lea...

Re: Meet Blondie...our first pit

If both dogs are spayed/neutered and your new addition is growing up with your JRT, odds are they will be fine together. I've had lots of multi Pit Bull households. BUT you should always use common sense. Feed them separate, give them treats/toys separately, and make sure that you do not leave them ...

Re: Fleas *sob!*

Food grade DE is a great insecticide, but you do have to exercise some caution around the animals to make sure you don't sprinkle it where they might INHALE it. It won't hurt them to ingest it, but it is a powder. Granted it tends to cling/stick to things, so that's good, but if you put it where the...

Want a snazzy eco-friendly collar?

Chako elves go to high end thrift stores in search of the right leather belts to make into gorgeous dog collars. You pick the leather belt and tell us if you want a buckle or martingale style collar -- send us your dog's measurements -- and we make the collar! Plain leathers can have conchos and oth...

Re: Turned Out Front Feet

SBTs are supposed to turn out in the front. From the standard: "Forequarters Legs straight and well boned, set rather far apart, without looseness at the shoulders and showing no weakness at the pasterns, from which point the feet turn out a little. " Hey I learned something today about t...

Re: Turned Out Front Feet

He doesn't look THAT bad, and the dog you reference whose feet turned almost backwards obviously had some other issues besides "easty westy" going on. Lots of dogs are slightly easty westy. I wouldn't be too concerned if it's only as bad as in the photos, but one thing you can do is try to...
