Here at furrybeads, we know firstpaw what it takes to make a dog collar that lasts. In 1998, furrybeads founder Holly Newman was making jewelry at a local bead store. She noticed some gorgeous wooden beads and decided to make a collar for her Alaskan Malamute, Clay. Not only did the distinctive design get noticed everywhere she and Clay went but Holly also realized that this new collar didn't have that stinky smell Clay's cloth collars always seemed to have, despite regular washing. Everytime Holly went to the park someone requested a collar, with that furrybeads original bead collars was born.
Each and every furrybeads collar is skillfully made by hand in Vancouver, BC. Each is the culmination of 20+ years of painstaking research, testing and refinement to ensure your dog's collar is the strongest, safest and most stylish collar at the dog park.
