One of Ella’s Christmas presents were a few new items from Pink Tail Co. I first discovered Pink Tail Co. back before I brought Ella home. I had done an instagram search for feminine, floral dog collars and they came up! I love to sew, but I often don’t have as much time (as I would like) to create clothing and accessory items. That being said, I just recently made Ella a few collars. It is sooo good to get back into some home sewing projects.
ANYWAAAAY!!! What attracted to me to Pink Tail Co. is that it is a small business and each collar is lovingly, handmade in San Francisco. If I didn’t have the time to make Ella a cute collar, I might as well find a company that could! I truly love supporting small businesses, as I find they have the BEST service and products and I use to be a small business owner myself! So, I really appreciate the time, talent and dedication that these owners put in to making their dreams come true! And I really want to support that.
My first order was the, Aurora Bundle. It came with a collar, bow and leash. It was too big for an 8 week old puppy, but I knew Ella would grow into it and I couldn’t have picked a better first choice. I loved the rose gold hardware and the floral, spring-like pattern. Ella was born on May 26th, 2019, so I wanted her first collar to reflect that time of the year. I also find it so special that Ella was born in May, as it is also a very romantic month for my husband and I. Our first date was on May 1st, 2009. He made it official on May 15th, 2009. And we got married on May 16th, 2015. SO…as you can see, having a collar that reflects a special month was very important to me.
When I received my first order, I became SO obsessed and couldn’t wait to order more. I also really hoped they would introduce harnesses! AND THEY DID!!! I ordered two, for Ella. The Aurora (of course), as well as the, “Disney in Pink” harness.
This harness is beautifully made and having worked within the fashion and alterations industry, I appreciate the high quality and attention to detail that goes into it. It is durable, well made and you can tell the designer/owner truly understands what canines (and owners) need to feel comfortable, but also provided with function and style.
I really like how it fits around Ella’s collar bones and along her back and belly. It looks and appears to be a very comfortable fit. I am a huge fan of the Buddy Belts for this reason too, but Ella has wiggled out of them, on occasion, as it can be harder to find a perfect fit, especially for a poodle silhouette. I find the Pink Tail Co. stays on extremely well and I love how it is fully adjustable. I have yet to have Ella wiggle out during a play session outside or on a walk.
Speaking of which: another thing that I couldn’t get over, was I had purchased the harness during a Black Friday Promo and Pink Tail Co. adjusted the harness sizing to accommodate Ella’s poodle frame, at no additional cost! I was blown away…and this is something I think they SHOULD charge for, as someone who knows that it does take extra time to make those adjustments. BUT…wow! That just speaks volumes on their customer service and passion for a perfect fitting product.
When I first opened it, I adjusted the harness to accommodate Ella’s sizing and it was so easy to put on her. Although she is a puppy, she is well trained with having clothing and accessories placed onto her, but some of these things can take a bit of time to put on, with the different closures, etc. Surprisingly, the Pink Tail Co. harness was faster than I expected and I think that has to do with the parachute buckle! The hardware does put this harness in a light to medium weight category, but it is not at all heavy or uncomfortable for smaller or medium sized dogs.
I also love that Pink Tail Co. added a cute rose gold logo onto their harnesses and collars. It is a perfect touch and feels so fancy.
As you all know, I am a HUGE Disney fan and I had been wanting to make Ella a Disney themed collar or harness for quite some time. Well, it was like Pink Tail Co. read my mind because when they brought out two beautiful and fun Disney options, I could not resist!!!!
I find the, “Disney in Pink” fabric so fun and also extra cute for Valentines, as well as the “French” poodle, hehe. And the cotton material is breathable, lightweight and flexible for a little puppy.
Overall, I am so pleased with both the, “Aurora” and “Disney in Pink” harnesses. I am already planning my next purchase! If you have any other questions about Pink Tail Co., feel free to ask below. I also find the company to be very responsive on their social media accounts/website too!
