It takes a lot to wow me when it comes to dog products…but Classic Hound wowed me after only a few seconds on their site. Everything from the website layout to the collars was, well, classic. But classic in a fresh, new way. Does that make sense? The designs are clean and timeless, and they even have some fun products I’ve never seen before. Their mission statement says it succinctly – At Classic Hound, we are passionate about dogs and feel strongly that they deserve high quality gear that is as fashionable as it is durable.
You know me, I’m a sucker for the small business. These women know their stuff (Be sure to check out their FAQ page as well – they have some great info on collars in general) and use their own dogs to test (and model!) their products. They understand what we (the dog loving consumer) are looking for. We want products that don’t cost an arm and leg, that will last, and that will make our pooches stand out from the pack.
Here are a few of my favs from their line:
Red Riding Hood-Blue – $34
So this is just one example of the adorably unique collars you can find at Classic Hound. Kitschy and fun…but somehow chic at the same time. This particular collar only comes in 1” width, but you can order it in sizes XS-XL.
Collar Roses – $10
I think this is my favorite thing on the site. (I mean…that has got to be THE cutest dog model I’ve ever seen!) Available in 17 different colors to fit 4 sizes of collar widths, you are guaranteed to find one that will fit your dogs style and size.
Holiday Collar Club – $150
Collar Clubs?!? This has got to be the best gift idea ever. The Holiday Collar Club was my favorite. Here’s how it works – you choose 6 holidays and Classic Hound will send you a gender neutral collar to get your pup looking festive and fun. They offer many different clubs from the Collar Sampler Club ($75 – 3 months – a new collar each month) to the Connoissuer Club ($295 – 1 year membership – each month a new, exclusive, not-for-general-sale collar will be shipped to you. They are so serious about making sure your pooch is the only one rockin’ the hip new design, no two members within 30 miles of each other will be accepted!) This is definitely going on my Christmas wish list!
Classic Hound also offers products for humans…some of them made to match our four-legged counterparts. Make sure to hit up the Classic Hound website and let us know what you think. If you are already a customer, I would love your feedback on their products and customer service.
