Frequently Asked Questions 

Sizing details

Measuring your pet's neck is key! Use a soft measuring tape for the most accurate measurement. Please follow my sizing guide on the listings for measuring collars. I can offer in-between sizes for necks that don't quite fall into my sizing ranges listed.

I do offer custom lengths on leashes as well.

Care instructions

Solid brass hardware will require some maintenance. Use a vinegar/lemon juice and salt mixture or baking soda and a scrub brush to remove any stains from brass or to make the brass look shiny again. Vinegar/lemon juice and salt also work to shine up the copper plated screws used on many of the Rose Gold items.

Plated hardware, especially black, are more susceptible to having the finish chip off.

Wholesale availability

I do have a few retail shops that carry my products at this time. I am currently at capacity for wholesale I can provide, feel free to reach out to be considered down the road if availability opens up. Shops that carry my products for in person viewing and purchase include:

Hen & Goose - Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia

Global Pet Foods - New Minas, Nova Scotia

The Market General Store - Wolfville, Nova Scotia

The Bonehouse - Toronto, Ontario

Endless Pawzabilities - Dalhousie, Ontario

Suitability for you and your pet

You know your pet best! Some will wear whatever you'd like without a care, others may be bothered by hardware or collars. At Kite & Anchor we try to have a little something for everyone.

My recommendations for dogs who prefer something lightweight are the 1/2" and 5/8" widths, I would also suggest the plated hardware choices over the stainless and brass because they are heavier than their plated counterparts.

For large dogs, the heaviest weight hardware I have include solid brass and stainless steel. I would suggest bolt clasps for strength if you've got a large dog that pulls a lot.

Lastly, when wearing a the hands-free leash, typically the most comfortable choice is 3/4".


You save money when you buy a set! Sets have their own listing with discounts already built into pricing. 

Safety & Guarantee 

Kite & Anchor takes your pet's safety very seriously! Quality products you can rely on are our #1 goal. Always inspect products before use, check clasps to ensure proper closure or for weakened springs. Do not fasten trigger leash clasps to multiple pieces at one time as pressure on either side can open this clasp. Rinse side-release clips and bolt leash clasps with fresh water after using in salt water or sand.
In rare case of hardware failure, please contact right away and I will replace at no charge. Hardware is guaranteed with the exception of scratches on finish to plated hardware. Biothane damaged by natural wear and tear or damage caused by your pet (chewing) will not be replaced.
