Collared Creatures leads the way with luxury ranges


Leading Yorkshire-based pet accessory company, Collared Creatures launched some exciting new products at Crufts this year including an exciting new range of handmade rope collars and leads in a variety of attractive colours, a deep over-stuffed dog bed and a new range of buckled collars all made from waterproof webbing.


Collared Creatures is a family run business based in Yorkshire. Every person who works with them is an extension of the Collared Creatures family and at the business’s core is a passion for dogs. Attention to detail is also important and taken very seriously from sourcing foam inserts to the fabrics that are used so that everything is made from the finest of materials to the highest specification. The company’s slogan is “Made in Yorkshire with love.” 


One of their most popular ranges is their collars and leads made from Harris Tweed. All of the handmade dog collars use 100% wool fabric that is hand-woven on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. The dog collars are available with an Alumax clip, buckle or martingale style. All collars are lined inside with Kona Cotton fabric and have a strong webbing core inner for strength and durability and are fitted with a welded stainless steel D ring.   


The last three years have seen Harris Tweed remain "on-trend" and a regular feature in both High Streetstores and on catwalks in couture collections and the increase in popularity has led to the training of a new generation of weavers to meet production demands.   Harris Tweed is used by many well-known clothing and footwear brands and is used to make hand bags, purses and other fashion items. New markets are emerging within the BRIC nations and more traditional markets are reviving in the USA and Europe as well as East Asian countries including South Korea. Sales forecasts are optimistic for the cloth. The Collared Creatures Harris Tweed dog collars are therefore the perfect pet accessory to complement the currents trends in fashion. They are available in an attractive range of colours and designs to fit any size of dog.


Collared Creatures are also well known for creating the Dog Cave and the Deluxe Cocoon Dog Bed. Known for its thick tubular bolster pillow that creates a ring of supported comfort, the Cocoon dog bed is also made from the highest quality handpicked fabrics. The outer shell made up of luxury fabric that creates a soft and practical hood. The fabric used is a very closely-knit fibre which creates a hair repellent like surface, making it suitable for wiping with a damp cloth. The internal of the cocoon dog bed is lined with a luxury faux fur fabric, that is soft to touch, but made to last.


Another addition to the Deluxe Cocoon Dog Bed is its removable 10 cm solid foam pillow, which essentially can act as a separate bed and can be easily removed. The Deluxe Cocoon comes with a removable tube, which is intended to be used as an aid for familiarising a pet owner’s dog with entering.


Collared Creatures are also famed for their luxury range of dog drying coats, towels and mitts which help to prevent muddy shake-off from your dog after a long walk and also help to keep their muscles nice and warm preventing joint problems. The Dog Drying Coats have a double thickness and are made of high-quality quick-drying, 358gsm microfiber cotton towelling inner and a 300gsm fleece outer.


The coats are ideal for drying your dogs after bathing, walking and swimming. Not only do they help dry your dog quicker, but they also keep them warm and safe. The drying coats are packed with features such as a waterproof zip to the front to allow for dogs with a wider girth neck. Not only that but when fully zipped down the complete fleece collar can be folded back to allow for my breathability once your dog’s warming up. At the rear of the neck, you will find a hole for attaching leads, perfect for walks and getting them out of the car. 


Collared Creatures’ dog drying towels and mitts help to remove wet dog smell and are eco friendly. They are made from Bamboo cloth. Bamboo is renowned for its absorption qualities, is highly water absorbent and is able to hold 3 times its weight in water. Bamboo is considered to be one of the most sustainable plants because it grows quickly and does not require chemicals or irrigation.
