Golly Gear was started by a sister team several years ago to specialize in “fun, affordable, and practical products especially for small dogs.” As life-long small-dog people, they understand how difficult it can be to find appropriately-sized products for small dogs; from harnesses, to toys, to treats, to leashes and collars.

Golly Gear developed a particularly broad selection of harnesses for small dogs – each with a particular strength (no-choke, no-escape, easy-on, for hard-to-fit, non-chafing, etc.). To help people find the right harness for their dogs they even developed a “DIY Harness Selector“!

To enter the giveaway please use the form below! Good luck, and thanks to Golly Gear for providing the prize for the giveaway.

Sophia Maxim Design for the discerning dog owner.

It’s always great to learn of new dog products, especially when they are made in the USA! We were introduced to Sophia Maxim Design recently and fell in love. Not only are the collars gorgeous, the tag is too! The tag is also pretty genius, as it goes onto the collar!

Sophia Maxim Design Collars

The owner, Dawn Grana, started Sophia Maxim Design about a year ago when her dog, Max (a rescue), snagged his dangling collar on her berber rug and couldn’t get loose. Luckily, she was at home and able to free him immediately but she obviously wondered what would have happened if she wasn’t home. Dawn, being the enthusiastic dog lover, decided that she wanted to help make a difference in the lives of furry friends. Not just her own, but the lives of all dogs.


Unfortunately, Baby wasn’t feeling like a photo shoot this day. In fact, all she wanted to do was have a nap. The collar looked really cute on her. I did get a few shots before she konked out, but since she was a bit fluffy (and on the move), they just weren’t that great. I decided to show off the collar on a ceramic bunny instead.

What I loved most aside from the quality and design of the collar was the huggable tag! No more clinking her tag on her water bowl or dish. No more worry about her tag getting stuck!

Huggable designs come in Silver, Bronze (the two Original Fine Jewelry Tags), Nickel, and Black Nickel (the two Everyday Collection Tags) and slide easily onto Sophia Maxim Design collars. All collars are ribbon based and backed onto durable nylon webbing that is tough and attractive.

They also offer an Everyday Style Set that includes a nickel or black nickel tag and a coordinating collar and leash! Be sure to see all the gorgeous designs for your dog by visiting the Sophia Maxim Design website.

Disclosure: I received a collar and huggable tag for review purposes. As always, opinions are my own.
