One of the items which many associations use for fundraising is to sell dog collars. The huge majority of these collars are fabric martingale collars. My experience of these is that a) the dog scratches the collar and the fabric gets tatty and 2) I would never ever risk walking one of my galgos outside in one. It may be that I have bought a design not suited to the purpose which I required. But personally, I still prefer a shaped leather collar. And the most fantastic designs I have found are Barcelona Dogs.
I met Klea, their creator/designer, when I went to Barcelona at the beginning of December 2010, and I can confirm the superb quality of these collars and the designs unique. Even better that the price for the collars was not staggering, which I had expected, considering the 'jewels' used.
For anyone wishing to purchase a collar from Klea and at the same time raise funds for galgos in Spain, then if you order through the link on Galgo News, Klea will make a donation to my Galgo Fund. To ensure Galgo News gets the donation, please use the code berylgalgos. There are two special designs for galgos, at a discount price, but you can also choose a collar for any breed/type of dog from the whole range of collars. So please click on the website Click this link for special rescue galgo range.
As I've mentioned before, money raised from the sale of my book and notelets is used to donate to appeals for help with vet fees, which I post on Galgo News.
