“My Springer Spaniel, Tucker, lived for 16 great and memorable years… years filled with memories so indelible that every night as I go to bed I can’t help but smile in my heart just thinking about them. When Tuck passed on, I decided to hold on to his favorite leather collar as a keepsake, and it has remained on my nightstand resting against his urn ever since… except for those times when I just hold it in my hands and remember.
He wore that collar for 14 of his 16 years. In that time he had many fun fabric collars that celebrated a holiday or a vacation spot, but they are gone now since they were never meant to last more than season or two. His leather collar, however, remains a testament to our years together, and to the wonderful times I had with my best friend. Of course I don’t have the foggiest idea what I paid for that collar now, but I know it was worth every penny and more.
So when I started Woofwerks, I had in mind the notion of creating “heirloom” quality collars that would give dogs years of great service and their owners a lifetime of lasting memories… just like I experienced. That’s why I choose to hand-craft our collars and leashes out of the finest English Bridle leather I could find. After all, every dog deserves to wear the best.
