Notes from Trish

Our Top Rated Designer Dog Collars for 2019

by Trish Hampton on May 02, 2019

We're proud of our designer dog collars. We source only the best materials: high-fashion fabrics and designs that are sure to get your pup noticed, yet durable enough to handle a romp in the woods or a day at the beach.

Trish and her mom create our collars right here in our cute-as-a-button studio in historic Chepachet, Rhode Island. Trish seeks-out the latest fashion trends for every season. We think you’ll notice the care, love, and attention that Trish put into her forward-thinking designs.

Here are our favorite Trish Hampton  designer dog collars for  2019.

10. Blue Candy Stripe

This collar screams “Take me to the beach!” Cool blue and indigo tones complement any pup’s coat. The vibe here is coastal, friendly, with a dash of rad. This collar conjures-up visions of salt water taffy, ice cream cones, and frisbee on the beach.


9. Chocolate Multi Stripe

When Trish designed this collar a few years ago, she was ahead of the early 80s retro craze that took root. Remember sitting with your friends during summer vacation and playing Atari on a cool summer night? That’s where this collar takes us.


8. Hot Pink / White Polka Dots

We love the attention this color brings. This intense hot pink tone makes us think azaleas, roses, and all things summery and sunny. Polka dots add an air of sophistication and glam.


7. Ho Ho Ho

Every furry friend deserves to be spoiled at Christmas. We love the warm and sophisticated look of this holiday collar. If your pup is front-and-center in the family Christmas photo, this is the collar you’re looking for you.

6. Navy / Green Whales

This collar is SO Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. Preppy navy blue and green tones and a classic whale pattern will pair well with your Nantucket Reds and strappy sandals. This collar makes us think rolled-up summer slacks and sunsets on the beach.


5. Coral / Chocolate Stripes

This collar makes us think chocolate ice cream and strawberries. (Yes, ice cream may be a recurring theme in this article.) This collar looks especially nice on pups with chocolate coats (hello Chocolate Labs, we’re looking at you).


4. Maroon / Navy Stripes

This is our favorite patriotic collar. It makes us think of 4th of July parades, backyard barbecues, and fireworks at the beach. Classic maroon and navy tones are preppyish and have a New England coastal vibe.


3. Orange Reflective

Safety is important. Trish manages to combine safety and style seamlessly with this collar. Many of our friends work long days and need to take the doggos for long walks at night after work.


2. Chocolate / Periwinkle Stripe

Who doesn’t love periwinkle blue?!? Periwinkle and warm brown pair perfectly and create a look that is timeless and refined. Word has it that a very famous New Yorker has spoiled her dog with this collar.


1. Black / White Polka Dots

A classic. This is the Audrey Hepburn of dog collars. Timeless, charming, and downright perfect for every occasion.

  Want to make it an outfit? A matching or coordinating bowtie, blossom, or designer dog bandana can really complete the look. Most of our designs work together pretty seamlessly. If you’re unsure of what to match, don’t hesitate to reach out to Trish and ask her. She’d be happy to help you choose the perfect bowtie, blossom, or bandana and create a  finished look for your pup.

About Trish Hampton

People ask how we started and the story goes like this. In 2002, Trish got her first dog, a beautiful American Bulldog named Maggie. After searching store to store she realized she wasn't going to find anything special enough for her 100 lb lap dog. So, to the design studio she went. After scouring the garment district in NYC for ribbon, webbing, and hardware she sat at the sewing machine and put together a few styles of collars and started giving them away to friends and family. A local pet store was delivering food to one of those friends, saw the collar, asked the friend to have Trish come to his store. This store in Ridgefield, Connecticut was our first customer - he loved what he saw and ordered our line (Trish didn't know what a line was!), but two weeks later, sewing 20 hours a day she delivered her first order. The rest you'd say is history.

Today the inspiration in our studio has changed from having a calm, loving, sweet girl named Maggie, to having 2 toddler boys, Spencer and Cooper and a high energy pup named Finley - needless to say it's quite a crazy place. But, our goal has not changed and that is to always create beautiful handmade gifts that you will enjoy giving your loved ones — whether they be your child, your friend, or your best four–legged friend. All of our products are handmade here in the United States with quality, durability and style in mind.
