Product Review: Dog Collar and Harness

I'm always purchasing different items, so I thought it would be a good idea to share my thoughts on my purchases. And what better place to share my opinion than my blog...
On October 22, my precious Dinky will be 10 years old. I have been searching for him a birthday present and one of them is this adorable dog collar by Day Dog Designs. There are a lot of cute dog collars on Etsy but I was attracted to this store because of her large variety of cute whimsical designs.

I have always chose collars that predominantly red. I like the way red looks against Dinky's black and white coloring. He also looks good in blues which brings out his pretty blue eyes. I found several collars that I liked at Day Dog Designs, but this one was perfect with the combination of red and blue. It also has the cutest little mouse and mushrooms.

I had "favorited" the item many months ago with the intention of purchasing it for Dinky's birthday, but back in the summer, the store status changed to "vacation." When I read when the status would change, it said possibly mid September into October. The owner had surgery on her hands, with recovering time questionable. I started searching for another collar just in case I was unable to purchase this one. I did find several cute ones, but none that captured my interest as this one did.
The collar arrived promptly and in a bubbled mailer. When I opened the package, the collar was in plastic and I had a cute note wishing Dinky happy birthday.
I was totally excited about this collar. It is very well made, adjustable, and is even cuter in person than online.
Look at the cute little mouse on the mushroom...

I am super happy with my purchase. Now I'm heading over to order a matching harness.
I have used step-in harnesses for a few years and prefer them over the tradition harness. Now Dinky has an adorable matching harness to go with his cute collar.
I was having a hard time deciding on which collar to order for my other wienie, Toby. I had "favorited" a few designs, but they just weren't grabbing me like the one that I chose for Dinky. A few days after ordering,  I noticed that Day Dog Designs had added few new designs, that's when I found the perfect collar for my Tobe.
I love these cute little happy fish! I love the colors too. They are different and they will look wonderful against his dark coat.
As you can see, I ordered a collar and matching harness in the little fish design for Toby. When I ordered them, Terri (owner of Day Dog Designs) was offering a free shipping coupon, which I used, but since I ordered Dink's harness just a few days before, she refunded my shipping and mailed them all together.
Here's Toby modelling his new collar. He's pouting because I won't let him climb in my lap.
Looking adorable in his matching harness. Love it! Love it!

Day Dog Designs offers a large variety of adorable collars. Harnesses and leashes can be ordered too. She offers impeccable customer service and well made products. I will purchase from her again in the future.


  1. Wow Tisha, what a cute collar-certainly worth the wait!


  2. Those collars are so darn cute! I really like the little fish one! And harnesses are good to have, even better with matching the collar! =)
    Great product review, Tisha!

  3. You're just lucky that your two chums will let you put harnesses on them! Collars were the only "adornment" we were allowed to put on our woofers when we had similar ones to your two!

    Hope they enjoy sporting their new presents at Christmas and in the New Year!

    All the best.

  4. I do have wonderful little dogs. I am so happy with my purchase.


Thank you for reading my post. I enjoy hearing your thoughts. Tisha
