Deer Miz Karen,
 
You must have made my kollar of magic,
At least that's the way it seems;
When it encircles my beautyful neck,
I chase the Red Stag in my dreams.

"Let me start with I love your collars. They are the only thing that all of our greyhounds have worn. Nothing else comes close!
 
After five years, it is time to order a new one for Toro. ...
 
Thanks in advance for you wonderful work."

"I did want to take a moment to tell you how much I absolutely love the collar you made for my Italian Greyhound, Paige. I cannot tell you how gorgeous it is! I love the blue shade of faux suede you said would be perfect with the geometric design. It is stunning!
 
I can't thank you enough for taking the time to talk with me and helping me decide on the right color scheme for my puppy. Like you said, it will seem a little big for her until she grows more, but I've attached a few photographs for you to see her with her new collar. I think it suits her perfectly! Thank you... Thank you...
 
I will definitely be in touch when she is an adult get another collar from you. Your work is amazing..."

"We have received the collars today. Surprisingly quick, less then 1 week. They are beautiful, our dogs look great with them."

February 2008

"Hi Karen, we would like to order another collar for the our IG. We bought one from you last year and it is fantastic. We have a new addition to the family and the current one fits her best so we need another for our boy Oscar. Thank you."

September 2007

"Karen, thankyou so much for the beautiful collar. Sorry I took so long to email you back with the pictures, I don't know where the summer has gone!!! I love the collar and so does Maggie. I have shown a few people around Prince George so don't be surprised if you get some more orders."

September 2007

"The collar arrived last night and Tigger (my whippit) and I absolutely love it."

September 2007

"I just wanted you to know that Elwood's collar arrived today in perfect condition and is even more beautiful than I anticipated. The pictures don't do these collars justice; they are just gorgeous! Elwood looks great, and the fit is just right. Thank you so much for hurrying this collar to me. ...
 
Thank you again for your wonderful service and gorgeous collar. I look forward to placing more orders with you in the future."

August 2007

"Thank you very much for the beautiful collar. It suits our Italian Greyhound very well. We will send you a picture soon. The collar arrived in Sydney, Australia, Wednesday 28th August. So I think that is quite a quick delivery."

August 2007

"We got the collars last week and as soon as I put them on the prancing started. The new collars look great and Dante has plenty of room in his new one; we got his first one when he was only a couple of months old and it was getting tight on him. They both look great! I've included pictures of each of the dogs with their new collars. Thanks again for a wonderful item the dogs love wearing."

July 2007

"Thank you so much for the beautiful collars. They are absolutely gorgeous and we get compliments everwhere we go."

June 2007

"Today we received our collar in the mail. I was already impressed when I took it out of the package, but when we slipped it on our Habeeba, I was without words. Normal humans may not understand this but you made her even more beautiful than she already is!
 
The fit is absolutely perfect and your craftsmanship is stunning. When I say that nothing but the best will do for my greyhound, your collar is the proof. I must also say that, to me, the collar you make just seems more comfortable to the dog than the average martingale."

June 2007

"Just for something a bit different, I'm attaching a photo of a portrait of my two dogs that I commissioned from a Scottish artist. My whippet Luke has been painted wearing one of your gorgeous collars.
 
I get comments all the time about his collars, and I tell people where they came from - and that he's a very spoilt dog to be dressed so smartly."

May 2007

"You are simply amazing! I can't believe we already have our collars when I only sent the order last Wednesday.
 
They are absolutely gorgeous and we all love them.
...
Thanks so much."

May 2007

"The collar arrived today. It is MAGNIFICENT! And it fits George like a dream! What wonderful timing--tomorrow we are going on a Greyhound Adventures walk! This is a group of hound owners that get together on weekends to walk in parks, etc.
 
I know there will be MANY compliments and I will be sure and tell everyone to visit karenskollars.net.
 
Thank you for the nice note too! How wonderful to stand by your product.
 
And the beautiful little brass clip and ring--I immediately took George's ID tag (we're waiting on his license, and he did not get a rabies tag at the vet from the track) off the cheap little ring it was on and placed it on that lovely little touch! How classy!"

[The following day]  "[We] just returned from our Greyhound Adventures walk, and I can say with 100% certainty that George had the nicest collar of the approximately 40 greys in attendance!"

[2 weeks later] "I am still completely entranced by this collar. It is GORGEOUS!! Everyone comments on it."

April 2007

"We just received the beautiful, new collars. We definitely will take some pictures of Mia wearing them and send them to you. Thank you so much for making these wonderful collars for I.G.s. I don't know how we could live without them!"

March 2007

"I just referred some other iggie persons to you, and since browsing your site, saw all the changes.
...
I often show my girls wearing your collars on iggyplanet and so, when I can I send them your way."

March 2007

"I WANT TO LET U KNOW THAT I RECEIVED THE COLLAR LAST WEEK. IT IS SO GORGEOUS COLLAR. THANK U SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS SPECIAL COLLAR. I WILL TAKE PICTURE OF HER AND SEND IT TO U SOON. REALLY IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL. ALSO IT FITS HER WELL."

February 2007

"The collar you lengthened for me, Karen, arrived in the mail today via my friend in Tennessee. Luke's already wearing it and it's a much better fit. I was also delighted to get the present of a tag clip - I didn't even know they existed - which will make changing over Luke's collar when he's been rolling in something smelly (a fairly common occurrence) so much easier. Thank you very much for that, and for adjusting the collar so promptly."

November 2008

"wow! besides being the best kollars, you have the best service!! can't beat that combination."

March 2007

"WOW! Thank you so much for making such a beautiful collar for Lola. It's absolutely beautiful and I think it's the perfect fit! You were so nice to take the time to talk with me. And, as busy as you must be, you got my collar and leash out so quickly!
 
I'm looking forward to many more years with Lola, and many more 'Karen's Kollars'!"

February 2006

"Thank you so much for the beautiful collar, Xena loves it. I was so surprised when the package arrived on Monday, that was really fast."

January 2005

"We received the collar today -- I was expecting a quality piece due to the excellent reviews I've seen on Iggy forums and of course due to the wealth of info on your website...but I gotta tell ya, as far as collars go, this is a work of art! Beautiful, and the fit is perfect! Very well-made, sturdy, but not too bulky or heavy...
Karen, you really know what you're doing! I'll have to send a pic of our little guy with the collar on -- maybe sometime next week when we start him in his puppy class. The black collar contrasts beautifully with his (mostly) white body, while the golds and browns in the trim bring out the brown spot on the left side of his little face! Very Cool!
Thanks again!"

"Hi Karen,
 
Happy New Year! I hope you, your husband and the GH's are all doing well. Your website and photos all look fabulous. I don't know if you remember but I'm [name, city, state deleted] with the 2 black and tan coonhounds. We currently have four of your collars! The are still in perfect shape and wearing nicely. Whenever I wash the ultrasuede (Navy Diamonds w/Serpentine) it's amazing, it comes out like brand new. I can't tell you how much we've come to appreciate the collars. I just washed that one (the others are leather and suede) and I told my husband I've got to pull out the file and remember to place an order soon.
 
I will give you a call to see if your available one day this week to discuss. Our young energetic very active 85 pound Coonie who wears your collars hasn't worn them out and he's not our best behaved while on the leash and/or attempting to teach himself to hunt. I have finally gotten a digital camera and hope to share some photos for consideration on your website after I receive the new ones.
 
I'm planning to order (2) Ultrasuedes hopefully with trim and the interior fleece lining. I thought mine were 3 inches wide and with the fleece it was 21 1/inches long. I was admiring the Southwestern Tapestry, Multicolor Diamond Tapestry but your much better on the color suggestions considering his black/tan colors.
 
I'm thrilled your still making these collars and hope your doing well. Talk to you soon."

July 2004

"Molly's collar arrived today and it is so beautiful. The collar has been made to perfection and exceeded my expectations. To refresh your memory, I ordered an IG collar, Southwestern with Fuchia Ultrasuede trim. Molly is white with fawn and it looks and fits wonderful on her. You are very talented and I will recommend your collars to all my friends."

July 2004

"Howdy!
Rec'd Zorro's Kollar today and we are thrilled! You pay such great attention to detail! It fit's perfectly, I realize now, that he really has out-grown his old one, even tho it still fits, the actual collar part is larger on the new one, but the martingale loop is smaller, and it goes on easier.
I mailed your check Monday so it should arrive shortly, I'm glad you wrote the letter with sizes on it, I'll save it with his records. You are now Zorro's 'Official Kollar Tailor', (that's like being dubbed a knight). I will pass your website to all my long necked friends. You are wonderful to do biz with."

"I wanted to send you a note of thanks for the beautiful donations of Italian Greyhound ultrasuede collars that you offered to our Seattle Italian Greyhound rescue organization's recent auction this past Saturday (6/5), and to let you know how much everyone loved every one of these items.
 
They were all very popular items on the auction table, and sure caused quite the bidding war! Actually, I think they were the most desirable items at the auction that day. They were beautiful, and it was hard to keep my hands off them!
 
I was also happy to inform our guests, that you were capable of creating custom works... which, by the way, would also make lovely gifts for any greyhound lover :)
 
Having unique, handcrafted beautiful products such as yours, helped to make this auction a tremendous success. And because of the generosity of people such as yourselves, we were able to raise almost $1,000 for the benefit of Italian Greyhounds in need across the country.
 
We thank you so much for your help!"

June 2004

"About 6+ years ago, I ordered a great collar for my IG, Tucker. It was a wide purple ribbon (wider than suggested, because I liked the ribbon & wanted a lot of it to show) on purple ultrasuede. Believe it or not: it's still his only collar & still looks terrific!! My housemate also ordered collars for her 2 IG's, Timmy & Oliver, from you & they are also in great shape. Whenever we meet with other IG people, they ask about your collars & we direct them to your web-site, because we think your collars are the best.
 
I got a 2nd IG last August & want to order a collar for him. I'm sending in the order this week, but have been meaning to send you an e-mail to let you know how pleased we've been with your collars, and this was the perfect excuse for me to do so.
 
Thanks again!"

May 2004

"I am always amazed at the speed the US Mail works for you!!! Nothing I ever mail gets such speedy service.  :) Hahahaha.
 
Anyway, thank you so so so very much for the lovely collars you sent for IG Rescue. It was so generous of you and although you mention that both packages contained 'imperfect' collars, I can't find a thing imperfect about them.
 
You were so generous that we now have some to give to fosters in need and some we can auction or sell (at our local playdates) with all $ going to rescue. I really can't thank you enough. Donations like this are just wonderful for our little ones.
 
Attached is a picture of a foster girl I have in foster care now. She arrived in March and is turning 13 next month. She arrived with a mouth full of rotted teeth and intact. Now that she has had every tooth removed and is spayed, she is on her way to health. She arrived ematiated and is slowly, very slowly gaining weight. She is still very under weight. We normally use the Premier adjustable martingales for all fosters to go home with (and then I recommend your collars to the adoptive parents). This girl, Philly, is sooo thin, that she is going to benefit greatly from one of your donated collars (padded and soft). She thanks you from the bottom of her heart."

March 2004

"I just sent in 2 collars to be resized. I had asked for them to be rushed because my IG (rocco) was wearing a really cheap collar that I bought on ebay. I cannot believe how quickly you received and sent my request. I think I mailed the items on Friday, and I received them today (Tuesday). Once again, thank you for doing such a wonderful job, and for doing this so quickly. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your work.
I know I mentioned this in my letter to you last week, but I recommend you whenever possible on Igpost.com, and I will continue to do so. I also cannot wait to order Rocco's next collar. You have a lifetime customer in me.
Thanks."

January 2004

"What can I say but 'WOW'! I just got the new collar and it is spectacular. You truly out did yourself as it came out better than I could have imagined. The colors look unbelievable against his tan color. It is also a perfect fit. I'm so glad we went with the colors we did. Thank you!"

November 2003

"I just wanted to let you know how much I love my Karens collars. I have several different collars from several different makers, and yours are by far my favorite."

November 2003

"Thank you so much for the great job you did on my recent collar order. I feel like I just mailed you the check, and I already have the collar. This is the 2nd collar I have ordered from you, and I could not be happier.
 
I have put a recommendation for you on the IGPost.com website. Also, I am sending a picture of Rocco showing off his new collar. Feel free to post it to your site."

October 2003

"I just wanted to let you know we bought two new collars for our greyhounds this weekend at Dewey Beach, DE. We bought the patriotic collars this year. Last year we bought two collars from you. I am so pleased with them. When we bought the collars last year, they went on them as soon as we bought them and have worn them everyday. They still look brand new. They are quality made products. We have never had any problems with them and absolutely love them. We get many, many compliments on their collars. I like the fact that they are lined, my girl has a bald spot on her neck. I have never seen any collar that has a lining like yours. My husband and I do meet and greets twice a month and people are always asking about the collars and where we got them. We refer them to your website. While at Dewey this year, we got some business cards of yours to give out if anyone would like one. We have found that people like them for all different breeds, not only greyhounds. I just wanted to let you know we love your collars and we look forward to going to Dewey every year to buy our two greyhounds your collars. We head straight for your table. Thank you for making such a wonderful collar."

October 2003

"Dear Karen. I received my collar yesterday. I can't tell you how pleased I am with the collar. Fits perfectly, with lovely workmanship! My Samantha (my whippet for whom the collar was purchased) wears it proudly.
 
Thanks again. I'll be purchasing again!"

August 2003

"Thank you so much! I appreciate the prompt adjustment and return. I rec'd the collar a couple of days ago. I think it is perfect -- still trying to get the old girl to "put the brakes on" to make sure. And thank you for the two dollars back. I'll file the paperwork to make it easier if there is a need for a future adjustment. It's wonderful to find a great company with excellent products and excellent customer service."

April 2003

"The collar is outstanding!!!. Beautiful and fits like a glove. Capitán usually commands a hill next to El Morro Castle, but with your collar he was stunning. To tell you the truth, I was concerned the collar would be [too] fancy ... . Instead, its understated sobriety and classic aspect expresses of nobility. Tourists and residents usually walk by Capitán, but with the collar, they stop to glimpse at him in awe."

December 2002

"[Karen produces the BEST Best collars ever! I really mean that and have seen and ordered other callars from around the U.S and Europe. NOTHING compares to Karens!"

December 2002

"Your collars are very beautiful, so I am happy to refer people who ask on to you. Yours are just the most elegant of all!"
