Buying pet products has become an overwhelming task. Like most things these days, there are a million and one options available online and in stores. When you need a collar, leash, dog tag, or other accessory for your pet, you can get bogged down in hours of shopping, comparing, and reading reviews. Think about what your personal values are and what you’re looking for in a product. Do you value something made by hand instead of mass-produced? Do you want something made here in the USA? These aren’t just value decisions, they can make a difference in your experience with your pet products as well. Here are a few reasons to choose a high-quality pet product that is made in USA.
When shopping for pet products, it’s wise to consider products that are made in the USA, by hand, by animal lovers for animal lovers. Sure, there are tons of products at every price point, and it’s not a bad idea to grab some inexpensive backup collar or leash for an emergency. But a hand-crafted, high-quality pet product will last longer, look better, and stay stronger for years and years.
Memories of Your Pet are Forever
Here at Woofwerks, memories of beloved pets are a cornerstone of our business. Spending a little bit of time with a leather collar left behind by a beloved pet will bring back floods of great memories. Brass tags slowly gain a patina over the years, showing every day of fun in their tarnish. Leather collars resist chewing through and fit to your pet as the years go by, increasing in suppleness and comfort and becoming fully unique to your furry friend.
Making sure you have a lovely, heirloom quality collar, tag, or leash will allow you to have a lifetime of memories in one simple, beautiful item. Pets don’t (usually) write us letters or paint us pictures. Keeping a prized pet product is the perfect memento.
Easily Distinguish Your Pet in a Crowd
A beautiful leash or collar can help you in a pinch, too. A unique handmade product is easily identifiable, and if your dog were to leave your sight, you can help law enforcement or other local pet owners identify your dog. Even if your dog always stays by your side (we hope she does!), a handmade product like the ones we make here at Woofwerks can make your dog into the most stylish one in the park. Isn’t it nice to be the talk of the town?
Less Waste and Longer Lifetimes
Beyond simple beauty, products like our leather collars and brass slide on dog tags have vastly superior durability than most mass-produced pet accessories. This means fewer chewed-through nylon collars filling landfills, and fewer trips to the pet shop for you. The “heirloom factor” is decidedly higher if your dog has one favorite collar through their whole life, as well. Your pet will also be able to tell if and when they’re wearing a product that you like.
As the years go by, you won’t remember the price point at which you got your pet product. You probably won’t remember where you bought it. You’ll remember the hikes, cuddles, comfort and love. You’ll remember your pet’s unique personality and you’ll fill with gratitude for your companion. Check out our selection of english bridle leather collars and leashes made in the USA, and our slide on brass dog tags. We at WoofWerks are pet lovers ourselves, and we put that love into every item we make. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions or customization requests.
