{Giveaway!} Double Dose of Pet Accessories

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***
And the winner is…Emily and her yellow lab, Murray, who will soon be sporting the Scout Tag and either the blue/brown harlequin pattern ribbon collar or the football collar – depending on if Emily let’s her husband make the pick or not! Congratulations!
(Winner chosen using random.org)

Today we have fun double dose giveaway for all you pet owners out there!  With all the blasé collars and ugly machine-made pet tags to be found at chain pet stores, Etsy turns out to be chock full of stylish options!  We featured some of our favorites in last year’s holiday gift guide – including the fabulous sequined collars made by Jen from RogueCollars and the super chic ID tags made by Tessa from MakeYourDogSmile.

One lucky reader will win a pet collar of their choice from Rogue Collars and a personalized pet ID tag of their choice from MakeYourDogSmile. Read on to meet these two crafty pet lovers and for details on how to win!

sequined dog collar by Rogue Collarsstylish dog ID tag

Name: Jen
Etsy store: RogueCollars.etsy.com
Dogs or Cats?: definitely dogs, but I love all animals
Favorite breed?: Great Danes and Boxers (of course), as well as Boston Terriers, French Bulldogs and Dogue de Bordeaux (like Hooch in Turner & Hooch!)
Your pet(s): Rogue, 5, a Boxer, and Storm, 3, a Great Dane (yes, they are named after X-Men characters!)
Pet smooches – great OR gross?: great, just not on the mouth.  My dogs have learned to give me kisses under my chin.  🙂
Other crafty hobbies?: My latest have been just making additions to the dog collar line – including leashes and key fobs. Otherwise, I enjoy working on my wedding scrapbook.  It’s been a long drawn out process…I’ve been married 7.5 years and it’s still not done!  🙂
I started my Etsy shop because: Storm was in the typical puppy chewing phase and her latest fad was chewing collars.  She literally chewed a collar off of herself, as well as chewing collars off of Rogue too.  I got tired of buying new ones so I found a pattern online, bought a sewing machine and haven’t looked back!
Day-time gig besides Etsy?: I’m a nerd by day, as I work in IT for a large company, supporting their email environment.
Leader of the pack or wrapped around their paws?: Definitely leader of the pack – I trained both of the girls, so they follow me everywhere and obey me over my hubby!  But, on some occasions, I have to say, Rogue can be quite the princess…  I’ve taught her how to say “mom” (yes, literally), and she has learned to use it when she wants something.  How can you refuse a dog’s request when they call you by name?!  🙂
Rogue Collars

Name: Tessa
Etsy store: Makeyourdogsmile.etsy.com and HattieRex.etsy.com for people things
Dogs or Cats?: Dogs
Favorite breed?: Labrador Retreiver
Your pet(s): Hollie, black lab; Sofia, Westie; Ryder, mini Australian shepherd
Pet smooches – great OR gross?: Kinda gross, but it’s the thought that counts!
Leader of the pack or wrapped around their paws?: Leader of the pack! My husband is a different story!
Other crafty hobbies?: Refinishing antique junque, painting
I started my Etsy shop because: I had been making and selling at craft shows and one day I saw a mention of Etsy in a magazine.  I set up shop the same day.
Day-time gig besides Etsy?: Not anymore.  I was previously a high school Spanish teacher and also have a Master’s degree in technical communication.

    I love the baseball collar and the scout ID tag. I think my dog Lulu would like them, too!

  2. Katie

    I love the Kiss Me I’m Irish collar and the McKinley Tag for our dog Maverick!!

  3. Traci

    Riesling would look great in the mod dots collar with the lucky charm id tag. Her Marquette tag is getting quite beat up!

  4. Bekki

    These are SOO cute!! Thanks for posting something for our pooches!! I love the “Owls Dog Collar” and the “D is for Dakota” typewriter font customized dog tag. Our lab/basset/dachshund mix, Kittlesby, would think so too!!!

  5. Ruth

    will patiently wait for the cat lovers giveaway, for my lovely siamese, Sasha.

  6. Chandra

    Pourteur would look great in the football collar and the Scout dog tag!

  7. kelly bach

    I love the baseball collar and the scout ID tag and My Jade would love it too

  8. Barb

    LOVE all the dog collars – the monkey and retro circles are my favorite. I’ll have to come back once we get a dog (hopefully in the near future). I think our kitty, Phebe, would look great in the Sofia Maria round copper pet ID tag.

  9. Murray, our golden lab personally picked out the blue/brown harlequin pattern ribbon from Rogue (although his dad likes the football collar, so those two may have to battle it out if we win) and the Scout Tag from Make Your Dog Smile.

    I like Haute Apple Pie on facebook!

    Thanks for the great giveaway and introducing me to two new awesome pet sites!

  10. Angela

    Snickers would love the Football Dog Collar (he loves to carry his football around) and the Pet ID Bar in Aluminum.

  11. It’s so hard to choose! Thank you to Emily & Murray Dog for sharing this giveaway with us! Our yellow lab, PJ would look so handsome in the red bandana print collar with the At Ease typewriter tag! 🙂 Even if we don’t win, we’re happy to have found you both! (oh, AND Haute Apple Pie!)

  12. Angela M.

    We get to bring Macy, our new golden retriever puppy, home in just a few short weeks! I know she would love a new Purple Metallic Sparkle Custom Dog Collar and The Studio Tag.

  13. Riley “told me” that she would do lots of tricks for the purple zebra collar with the Sofia Maria round copper tag!

    Sooo cute!!

  14. Also, I liked Haute Apple Pie on FB! 🙂

  15. Alison

    Lena definitely needs the Hot Pink Sequin collar and the Doggy Wood silver tag… so adorable!

  16. Jaci Gooden

    I have two girls but I would get Coco the fireworks for sophia dog tag and the hot pink mettalic sparkle collar!

  17. Carrie

    Wrigley is a puggle but also a ruffian by nature – the red reflective collar and at ease tag would suite him well! Good article!!

  18. steph fluty

    My two boys would love the baseball collar, so then they will match.Along with a stella pet tag.

  19. Michele Beal

    My golden Retriever Bailey would look great in any sequin collar and a bar tag! You both make awesome pet accessories!!

  20. These are legit! Kenzie totally needs the brass convexed round tag and (obviously) a hot pink sequin collar – cuz her dad never lets her wear pink sparkles and people think she’s a boy – what’s up with that? 🙂

  21. Anne Dachenhaus

    Our girl’s name is Pepper. Yes, she is a girl. Her official name is Mr. Pepper. Do I need to mention my youngest named her during his Blue’s Clues phase? *sigh* I think she needs the Pink Cupcake Collar from RogueCollars along with the Sugar Skull tag from MakeYourDogSmile. Perhaps it will help to make her appear a bit more “girly”! I also took a moment to like your FB Page and am learning quite a bit. Thank you!

  22. Marit

    These are so great! Broddi would LOVE the green sequin collar (who wouldn’t?) and the copper bar!

  23. Kelly Ann T.

    I like HAP on Facebook as Kelly Ann T.

  24. Kelly Ann T.

    For Milele our Female Alaskan Malamute I like the Pastel Easter Plaid Dog Collar and the Lucky Charm – pet ID tag in brass. I would get the Colorful Bones Dog Collar and the Give a dog a bone – custom pet ID tag in distressed copper for our rescued Male Alaskan Malamute, Kouga.

  25. bridget

    I love the mod dots collar and the mini @ ease tag. My two pugs obviously need to be as stylish as possible! Especially now that they are out on the town more with spring here! And by out on town more, I mean sunning themselves in my backyard.

  26. I like a Dog Accessories. Thanks for this information. Good look nod dot collars & lucky.
