Our Story

Proudly carrying on the traditions of America’s oldest manufacturer of handcrafted leather dog collars & leashes.

Anita & Alan
Co-Founders

The company got its start in 1950, when Alan’s grandfather, Everett Dungey, began fashioning handmade dog collars in his basement, impelled by his strong love of dogs and a fervent entrepreneurial spirit.

Everett expanded his business, moving from his basement to an actual shop. In time, his son, Gordon, Alan’s father, joined him and together they developed the business into a full line of leather dog collars, leashes, and harnesses.

Like his father and grandfather before him, Alan makes his handcrafted collars and leashes in Auburn, a city in Cayuga County, New York. The city of 27,000 is located in the Finger Lakes Region of Upper New York state.

Alan has carried the tradition of passing the family’s knowledge to his son, just as his father passed it to him, and his grandfather before him.

Anita believes their all-natural products appeal because they evoke a simpler time, a movement back to the earth, towards nature.

“We are all rushing through our days. Our products are quiet and simple, a reminder of something we want to be in touch with."
