I was recently introduced to Mattie & Margot through One Tail At A Time, the rescue I fostered through before our big move. Mattie & Margot make super adorable collars, which is obviously awesome. But you know what’s even more awesome? Every month, they have a rescue pick their favorite collar and 100% of the proceeds go to that rescue. What???
For the month of February, One Tail At a Time picked this adorable chevron pattern in light blue:
The collar is really well-made, it came with a hand-written “thank you” note, and they offer a pretty cool trade-off for “recycled” collars:
Pretty rad, huh?
Without further ado, here’s Ru-man modeling his newest accessory:
On top of purchasing this collar for One Tail, I also jumped at the chance to test out their newest product – leashes! Rachael immediately sent us a matching leash for free to go with Ru’s gorgeous collar in exchange for my honest opinion. You can’t beat that.
I’ve never been one to match my dog’s collar with his leash, but it’s actually kinda fun! It’s like I’m getting him dressed up every time we go for a walk, haha.
My first impression? Both products are high quality. I looooove the bright and bold color options, and I will definitely be taking advantage of their recycle program.
My only complaint is the thickness of the collar – I’m kind of spoiled by Sirius Republic and I really do prefer Rufus in a 1 1/2 inch collar. Especially with these bold patterns, I think they’d look EXTRA fabulous. Hopefully this option will be offered in the future.
As for the durability of the products, I will report on that once we’ve had a chance to really wear them in – Rufus is a pro at this since his nose controls most of our walks. Gotta love the hounds.
