Premium Dog Gear, Made in the USA

Gray and Hound
Only the best for your dog
Since 2013, we've been passionate about making gear for your dog that is not only beautiful but will keep up with their shenanigans as well. That's why we use a combination of recycled canvas, polyester webbing, and strong hardware to create our products.
Made in the USA
Since 2018, we've partnered with a local mother-daughter seamstress team and now we also work with a small batch manufacturer right here in Oregon to produce our gear. We're proud to have had our products made locally in Oregon, USA since we started in 2013.
Evolving our products
I started with paracord as it was all the rage at the time. I posted on Sputzie’s account and people became interested in what I was making, so I started an Etsy shop by the name Blue Dog Collars PDX. Yeah... I have no idea where that name came from either. It was then changed to PDX Collars which was more fitting at the time. I quickly grew tired of paracord, it just wasn’t my thing, but I knew I didn’t want to close my shop. I loved the look of fabric collars though, so I borrowed my grandma's sewing machine and taught myself how to sew.
Growing Gray and Hound
I practiced for quite a bit until I had a good product, and once I was ready, I reopened my shop under my new brand, Gray and Hound. The name is a combination of my last name ‘Gray’ and my love for dogs, aka ‘Hound’, put it together and you get Gray and Hound! It was going great! Our collars were getting increasingly popular and at times I’d be up until 3 am sewing orders that needed to be shipped. I made all of our products from 2013-2018 until I decided I couldn’t keep up anymore and I needed to delegate that aspect of the business. After switching seamstress’ a couple of times, I finally found an incredible mother-daughter team right here in Oregon to sew all of our orders! Since then, we’ve grown tremendously we’re working towards continuing to grow slowly so I can eventually turn this into a full-time gig!
Update: I GOT A DOG!!
Meet Ivy, my soulmate in dog form. I met her in June of 2021 when I was at a rescue doing a photoshoot of adoptable dogs in our collars. They brought her into the play yard and she fell at my feet. From that moment, it felt like fate and she has been the perfect dog for me ever since! Thank you for supporting me and allowing me to follow my dreams. Without all of you, I would've never been able to take Ivy home with me that day.
