About

Product Highlights:Tell-Tail Harness - What distinguishes our harnesses from others is our patent-pending design that allows you to easily switch out the logo or image on the front of the harness using a durable, detachable patch.  It’s a fun and unique way to show off your dog’s personality conveniently and affordably with countless options.  

We fashioned the design of the harness itself to make it more efficient than others you find in the market:  The front is shaped so that it allows the dog’s legs to move freely and comfortably.  Along the dog’s belly, is a breathable mesh to keep it cool, and on the back are easy-to-use squeeze buckles.  The harness is adjustable at both the neck and girth to fit all shapes and sizes while staying centered on the dogs chest.  We placed a ring at the base of the harness where the leash attaches to prevent any pulling or tugging on the dog’s neck.   We also added a small d-ring for ID tags and charms and our products have been strength tested for safety.

Tell-Tail Leash - In addition we have designed a coordinating Tell-Tail Leash Collection. Our leashes are constructed from durable nylon webbing and finished with carefully selected hardware.  We added a d-ring to attach poo bags or charms and a soft neoprene lined colored handle to add comfort and style to every walk!
We hope to eventually offer our leash in a variety of colors and two widths and lengths.

Our long term goals?

Our long term goals include adding patches with collegiate and professional sport logos.  We plan to expand all of our collections including our Halloween and holiday lines.  We intend to use our product to raise awareness for many different foundations that help people as well as animals.  In fact, we already have patches designed for both Pet Rescue and Breast Cancer Awareness.
