Founded in 2015, WoolDog PDX’s gorgeous hand-made collars are all handcrafted by Sara from her Portland, Oregon base. She uses fabric from Pendleton Mills, a business that has been family-owned and operated for 150 years. The wool is a wonderful textile, as it’s water and rain-resistant, flame retardant, prewashed, and preshrunk.

WoolDog PDX’s collars are all hand-sewn, pressed, and double and triple-stitched. They feature contoured heavy-duty side release buckles with nickel-plated D-rings, which give them durability and strength. The different collars come in a variety of styles, all of which are named after Rivers in Oregon. Learn more about WoolDog PDX at www.wooldogpdx.com.
