About us .....
Welcome to Trendy Hounds, LLC martingale collars and leashes.
My name is Kathleen. I’m the sole owner/collar maker of Trendy Hounds martingale collars and leashes, a breast cancer survivor (as of Dec. 2014), wife, mom, grandmom, dog lover, and collar maker. I'm here to help keep your pup stylish and trendy.
I live in South Carolina, USA, with my husband and 4 dogs. My love for dogs is my greatest inspiration. Growing up we always had lots of dogs. Over the years, we’ve had a rat terrier mix, pekinese, several rescue dogs, (3) retired racing greyhounds, and bull mastiff. We currently have: a cane corso, (2) great danes, and a retired walker hound hunting dog. After adopting our first retired racing greyhound in 2005, I started searching for martingale collars to outfit him with. The first few martingale dog collars we purchased didn’t last long and were very expensive.
The desire to make quality, comfortable martingale dog collars at reasonable prices led to the beginning of Trendy Hounds martingale collars and leashes. Since we had greyhounds and worked with a greyhound rescue, I started out only making the 1.5 inch size “medium” martingale collars. It wasn’t long before customers were requesting collars in other collar widths and sizes, which led to gradually adding the 3/4 inch, 1 inch, and 2 inch width martingale collars in various sizes (x-small, small, medium, med/lrg, large, and x-large) for ALL BREEDS of dogs.
All Trendy Hounds martingale collars are lined with a fuzzy felt lining to help prevent bald spots on the dog’s neck. This fuzzy felt lining sets Trendy Hounds martingale dog collars apart from other collar makers.
CUSTOMER SERVICE--I try to imagine how I would like to be treated if I were the customer. You can’t always please everyone all the time, but I do my best to try. Products are only made to order unless it's listed as a "PRESEWN" item. I know when someone places an order they can’t wait to see their new collar(s) so I do my best to get orders out as soon as possible. I have a processing (sewing) time to allow myself time to get orders sewn, however as soon as I complete orders they are shipped so you can receive them as soon as possible.
