About this project








Meaning of our logo "X"? 

Much thought has gone into our logo, it represents Love, Loyalty, and Friendship. You see we wanted to design a line of collars that would be so beautiful that the owners would want them for themselves. It's this link, the owner and their dog wearing the essentially the same bracelet/collar that represents their love, loyalty and friendship. This is why we designed our logo and it is why our slogan is "LYNXX TO MY BEST FRIEND".

The planning, designing and engineering of our matching bracelets is just about complete. We will possible be running a second kickstarter campaign for our bracelet line. You will be absolutely amazed at how gorgeous they are, with a special edition to include our logo encrusted with diamonds, black diamonds and pink sapphires. I can't wait to finish our bracelet line and link all dog owners with their best friends.

"Lynxx To My Best Friend"


Not Your Traditional Dog Collar; MyLynxx is in a League of Its Own.

A MyLynxx collar defies every other dog collar. Let’s face it, your dog is part of the family. He or she eats, sleeps, and plays with you, so why not take care of their appearance as well. I know from personal experience that nothing is worse than bringing your dog home from the groomer, and twenty minutes later putting a collar on that stains your dog’s fur black. This problem will never occur with a MyLynxx collar because our collars are free from the metallic carbons that extract onto your dog.

To top it off, a traditional dog collar seems nice until you get around to that bulky, gaudy clasp sticking out. MyLynxx engineers worked hard to assure you never need to see a clasp again. Our unique collars have a hidden clasp inside the logo which completes their aesthetic look while strengthening their vice-like grip for durability.

A Complex Design Made To Look Simple

Early Design Phase
Early Design Phase

MyLynxx did not happen overnight! Two years of hard work finally compiled down to a single design. Each link of the collar shown above was originally a separate piece until they were hand welded together one by one. When looking at a MyLynxx collar notice the lack of a visible cracks between each link where they have been connected. To also hide the connection, the clasp is inside the circular logo. No other collar resembles this mechanism, and none will ever replicate a MyLynxx.

We started with sketching a model of what we thought would look cool but also be effective. After finally agreeing upon a simple model, we began to perfect it. We had sketch artists and engineers work together with us to mold a plastic sample to our liking. When we were satisfied with the molds, we advanced to prototyping. It took months of trial and error until we finally came upon the prototype that led us into our collars today.

                                The Mylynxx Clasp


                                           

The epitome of every MyLynxx collar is “hidden” inside the clasp. The spring-loaded latch offers a sleek way to hide the connection of the collar inside our circular logo. Not only is this design innovative, but extremely durable. Our system was tested to be stronger than the latches on our competitors’ collars. Our clasps are encrusted with the MyLynxx logo and meant to last a lifetime.

                           The Leash Attachment

Our collars offer a more effective way to attach your leash. We placed the leash attachment on the back of the collar for easier access. Also by doing so, the collar lays balanced on the dog, putting less strain on their neck. This attachment also serves as the optimal location for a dog tag.

All MyLynxx products are made from 316L surgical steel. This is a high grade metal and is proven never to tarnish or discolor. The reason we use 316L surgical steel over cheaper alloys is because it contains very low traces of carbon. Carbon not only rubs off the collar but also leaves black residue on the dog’s fur; we want to protect you from both of these issues. Surgical steel also allows the collar to be worn under water or in harsh conditions without tarnishing. Our goal was to make a collar that was dependable, one that would not need to be replaced within a few weeks or months. That is why we use the best; to ensure you that our product will last. We elaborte on every minor detail to save you from a major concern.

              How Heavy is a MyLynxx Collar?

Although MyLynxx collars are completely metal, they are surprisingly light! Our small, sixteen inch collar weighs a mere 4.2 oz., while our large sixteen inch collar is still only 11.6 oz. Different collars are designed to fit every sized dog without weighing them down. MyLynxx combines luxury with durability, giving you the most a collar can offer.

                   The MyLynxx Olympus Leash

We feel a beautiful collar deserves a beautiful leash. That's why we put our minds together and came out with a leash to complement our collars. This leash utilizes all aspects of our collars, opening a whole new regime of options. It uses the same surgical steel and MyLynxx clasping system as the collar, while combining a pull resistant handle to comfortably fit into any owner’s hand. Each MyLynxx leash and handle are detachable. Because the handle is detachable, you can easily mix and match different leash-handle combinations according to your personal preference. More leashes and handles will hopefully be released to the public in the future.
