Meet Moe. He is our Wild Wear mascot – along with his brother Barley – two “boy boy” Golden Retrievers that are happiest when they’re filthy. I love this photo because this IS Moe – at his happiest, with sticks on his tongue, ears flopped back and panting from latest crazy run.
THIS is why we only carry canvas collars and are moving into canvas bandanas – because my crazies are so insanely hard on their gear, and anything that doesn’t stand up to their daily antics isn’t up to par for what we want Wild Wear to be. They’re both in the pond daily, ripping through the woods and finding any mud they can – and through all of their adventures, our canvas collars and bandanas wash up like new day after day. We’ve made upgrades to our collars in our YKK plastic and AustriAlpin Cobra buckles – two military grade options that will make sure your collars last you forever.
Our YKK plastic buckles are SO lightweight, and if you have a water dog (like us!) they’re a dream – they are specifically designed to push sand or debris out of the buckle when clasping. I know a lot of you prefer our silver metal buckles – but as so many of you have seen, they can scratch and break down with wear and tear, especially with any exposure to water. The AustriAlpin buckles are some of the best on the market and are designed with safety in mind. You will never have to worry about them breaking or falling apart no matter how hard your dog is on them.
Last but not least – our canvas bandanas. If I had to choose for my own preference, I would always pick a gorgeous handwoven or wool mix fabric to put on my dudes – but I can’t tell you how many times they have come back from a romp through the field with burrs and snags all over that beautiful bandana and I am left feeling a little sad. My DOGS let me know what works best for them – and I am so happy to say after an entire day of swimming, dirt and tons of sticks – our new canvas bandanas still looked as great as the second I put them on that morning. We hope you’ll give them a try and let us know what you think - and right now you can save $10 on a bandana when you purchase a collar or bundle with the code “CANVASLOVE” at checkout 🌞
