How I Got Started
I'm detail oriented, I like my things to be exactly the way I want them, down to the smallest detail that most people wouldn't care about. It was easier for me to make my own stuff than find what I want.
Then I realized that I enjoy making these things, made leashes and collars for everyone I know and, after glowing feedback, decided to sell them.
My goal is to make beautiful things that last for years.

It was really interesting for me to learn the leathercraft. Even though BioThane isn't leather, the methods of working with it and most of the tools are the same. It's pretty easy to make nice looking stuff if you have the right tools.
Here are some of my tools
Here's a glimpse into the process
Some info about saddle stitching and why it's better than machine stitching

My Dogs And I
This is Booomchik (Russian endearing version of his name, Boomer), the dog that started this business and who's in charge of quality control around here. With his 95lbs lunging everywhere, he thoroughly tested all models that are offered for sale.
This is our newly hired addition, Kroka, he's still in training
And here's a picture of all of us together
