The idea for Banded Pines all began when I started getting tired of having to replace my dogs’ collars. I have a husky and a coley/retriever mix, both of which love playing outside like any dog. They also seem to love being rough on collars… I realized that it was nearly impossible to get a collar that would hold up against dogs being dogs. That’s when the idea came to create one. Every since we have researched, developed, and produced not only the most durable and dog friendly collar but also one that looks great.
