Each of us is living through a time that is unprecedented in our lives. All of us must now be mindful of such things as our surroundings, hygiene, and health in ways that are likely new to most of us. We must all be well informed and diligent in doing what is recommended by our health professionals while we endure this crisis. Eventually we will transition back to life as we knew it, but perhaps with a greater awareness and appreciation of the blessings that we enjoy in our free society.
Many of our customers met us, and have come to know us, at a craft show where we were exhibiting. Many others, however, have not learned firsthand who we are and how we do what we do. As we exhibit at fewer craft shows and expand our website business and social media presence, I want all of our customers, current and future, to be as comfortable with us as those who have met us and our dogs in person.
First ... Sherry and I, Bill Merrill, started our small business. We have a passion for dogs and for our customers who are also dog lovers. We have always had small dogs in our pack, and our veterinarian told us that small breeds are prone to trachea problems. We searched the market for a couple of years and found that harnesses that were both easy to put on and "trachea safe" for small dogs were simply not available. It was then that we decided to design and make the perfect "easy-on" harness for small breeds. Our harnesses are made using 1st quality materials, including a super tough webbing and hardware. We have become very well known for "high fashion" harnesses because we cover each strip of webbing with cotton fabric in bright and colorful designs.
Second ... all of our products are sewn by talented seamstresses in Florida. Let me assure you that our products are not made in China or any other off-shore or domestic manufacturer. Each item is hand-made by our dedicated seamstresses. In addition, each seamstress works at home. Because all of our products are made independently and at home, we have no "factory" to shut down during the current crisis
In spite of these difficult times we are experiencing, let's take a moment to enjoy more quality time with our family canine companions. Perhaps more walks in your neighborhood will be healthy and good for both you and your 4-legged friends.
