Good Karma

I've been meaning to post about this for a while, but I've been too busy enjoying what little summer Seattle has, and making new creations (inspired, of course, by all the lovely colors of summer!).

I was contacted some time ago by Ang from Karma Charms (www.karma-charms.com) a website dedicated to big dogs. As some of you may know, I myself have a dog, Delilah, but she is definitely not big. She's a 57lb lap-mutt who loves to go running, despite her ever slowing pace, and adores our kitties (especially chasing the little one). She's not a big girl, and she doesn't pull on the leash or startle easily, but I've certainly been around dogs that are and do, and I can see the potential problems that this could create. Angs dogs are bigger, and stronger, than mine, and they require a bigger and stronger collar:

Ang and her business partner have created a business dedicated to finding products, including collars and leashes, suitable for big dogs. I'm honored to be a part of their site with my collars. Since Karma Charms is for big dogs, they are the exclusive vendor for 1.5" and 2" widths (dual-d and dual layer collars are also available by request). I will continue to sell smaller widths directly (just email me - caitlin@moxieandoliver.com or visit my Etsy shop).

That's all for now - I'll write later about why it's so exciting to be partnered with Karma Charms, and the decision that led to it. For now, I will just say that it's the only place you can get Moxie and Oliver goods, besides directly from me.

PS: Here are some of the posts that others have done regarding this partnership --
