product info

  1. where are earthdog products made?
    all of our products are handmade in the usa, in nashville, tn to be exact.
  2. how do i choose the right size?
    collars: measure around your dog’s neck with a tape measure and add an inch or about the thickness of two fingers for wiggle room.
    harnesses: measure your dog’s chest girth around the largest part of the ribcage.
  3. what is a “martingale” collar?
    also referred to as a greyhound or “limited” choke collar, martingale collars were originally designed for sighthounds, as their necks are larger than their head. these collars have gained popularity as they provide more control over your dog without the choking effect of a slip collar. as with any collar that tightens when pulled, we do not recommend leaving a martingale collar on your dog unsupervised. we also offer a martingale relooping program to extend the life of your martingale collar.
  4. can i order an extra bed cover?
    we do sell extra bed covers; however, be aware that most of the cost of our beds is in the hemp cover. please email us for bed cover pricing.
  5. are earthdog products washable? how?
    all of our products can be machine washed and dried. hemp gets softer and softer with use, particularly with washing. we recommend washing your item separately the first time in cold water. our inner bed bags should be machine-dried thoroughly to maintain their soft and buoyant nature.
  6. can you fulfill special orders?
    we get many requests for special sizes and custom orders and are happy to fulfill those requests if possible. as our products are handmade, we have the ability to create special sized and custom items.
  7. where do you get your hemp?
    we use asian-grown 100% hemp canvas and webbing and hemp rope from romania.
  8. what kind of dye do you use?
    we use low impact, non-toxic procion dyes.
