Well my boys are getting bigger and I have a problem, Matt & Murphy are in 32 inch collars and we are down to the last hole. I need to get bigger collars and I have no idea where to go. All the pet stores here (in Oshawa) can't get bigger collars. Any Ideas??

Maybe talk to Scuba and see what he can come up with for you.

Might be an Idea, at this rate it should be interesting. This last hole isn;t going to last long. Their dad has a 35 1/2 inch neck. I might have some fun with this one

Check this site out : http://2houndsdesign.com/ . I haven't ordered from them yet but it seems most come up to 34 inches or you can specify what size you want. They're kind of expensive but the right size!

I have a Boerboel but she's only 8 months and can still wear a regular size collar ..... might need one of those in a few months!! ;)

Around here we have horse tack shops that will custom make some through the saddle/bridle repair person.
Probably a bullie or mastiff group will have some contacts on-line. Good Luck

Hi!
I got Lex and Jamal's collars on 2houndsdesign and I love them. I think you can try www.stephi.ca (http://www.stephi.ca/collier_laisse_harnais_eng.html) also. Here is what I have

Smiley14 makes ribbon collars, though....not sure if they'd be strong enough for M&M... :o But they'd look mighty handsome in them! :D

Yes, I can make you a collar if you'd like. I'd just ask for the cost of shipping it out to you. :)

Biggest one I've made so far is for a 29 inch neck, so it would be a new one for me, just to warn you. :) I make fabric collars with an inner nylon core. I can do regular side buckle release or traditional martingale, chain martingale, and leashes. Haven't attempted harnesses yet, but I will try that someday too. :) I only currently have up to 1 inch in stock though so woudl have to order supplies if you want anything wider.

A few examples:

I'm in the process of setting up an online site, but haven't actually listed anything yet:

Here are all my current fabrics:

My collars are fairly lightweight though, like the other fabric ones posted. This is very typical for fabric collars, although they are stronger than nylon and ribbon collars. If you're looking for a good leather one, I recommend this lady. They are a little more expensive, but well worth it!

Ohhh that would be awsome smiley14!!!! I am pretty easy to please I like the top style the best for the big guys, just alittle more stable for the big guys. I would like to keep the boys in their colours (red and Blue) but if you can't do it no biggie. No problem for paying for shipping. ANd I have no problem paying for the collars themselves and your time!!!

Oh, no problem! Do you know what width of martingale you normally use? And do you want solid red and solid blue or a pattenr with both red and blue or what do you usually like? :)
