Here is a neat site that has authentic beaded collars, just in time for Christmas...http://www.silverwol...SE-HALTERS.html

 

Also a well written article about the importance of culteral sensitivity vs cultural misappropriation. Good food for thought. http://www.cnn.com/2...?iref=allsearch

Reading your topic title I thought to myself, "Another Indian Dog?" lol I need to crack out my list of kewl-kollar links. As you said- just in time for Christmas :)

You must have to call on some of the prices because I cant see them nowhere unless I am overlooking them.

Star that WOULD be a great stocking stuffer. Tonya, I'm pricing it out for Waki. Something "dressy" for when he's out in the community representing the breed, not for everyday rolling in the mud. I'll let you know what she sais.

My GAWD those are beautiful.  If my dog is dressed up, that means I get to dress up as well. :lol:  I just love to costume.

I saw those and they are nice looking (I like the bear one) but if I want a Native American design it's going to be by a Native American Artist. I can't verify those (although the one sourced in New Mexico has a shot). I look for indication of authentic sourcing such as membership in the IACA - Indian Arts and Crafts Association. I also won't eat anything Cajun unless I'm in South Louisiana - it's just not the same, Chere.

The sleigh bells would drive my guys nuts!

 

Tho I was toying with a set of Mystery Braid collars with simple buckles.  Made custom to fit each dog and out of a complimentary color of leather.

The other CarpeCanem collars would be a bit much, as my guys don't need martingales.  I don't like 'choke' or constriction collars.  They are unnecessary for my dogs.  Those collars are more specific to the PointeyNosed Crew.. aka Greyhounds and the like.

 

If I was going to put a beaded collar on my dog/s I would probably just buy the loom and make the bead band myself.  LOL

And being of Lakota Sioux and Cree ancestry, it would be authentic   ;)

Star, if you decide to do some beading or beading with conchos and especially if you do a design for Songdog Kennel/ AIDs I would buy from you. I'd rather put my$ in the pocket of a silver smith and/or bead artisan that knows what the symbols mean and gives a living artwork with some soul to me. Plus there's the satisfaction of providing a little success to that artist such that they can continue with the art form.

 

We have 3 jingle collars from Carpe C. The dogs get excited for them (but they think tractor noises are great fun too). The other collars they offer didn't appeal to me. They seem too wide - just my personal preference, plus I was looking for bells. I've been using the bells on Waki so I know where in the woods he is. He gets a lot of attention as the "Chistmas Dog" with them also.

Yes Bells  would  drive malachi  crazy he couldnt   chase the deer  LOL :)

I've done the loom beading before- bracelets, belts, etc..
And I got a screen shot of the collars, and I am maybe going to make one of the leather/silver/ponybead type.  :D
