THE GEMSTONES, THEIR MEANINGS AND WHY WE CHOSE THEM.
The "Rescue Dog" Collars with Healing and Spiritual Gemstones have been specially selected for their properties to help heal the Rescue Dog.
How do I know what size collar to order?
All of our collars made to fit a within a small range, so there isn't an abundance of extra leather flapping about like some collars. There is a 2" range on our small, medium and larger collars for example 14 - 16", and only 1 1/2" on the teeny collars 7 - 8 1/2" and will fit your dog anywhere within that range.
What if I have a dog that gets clipped?
If you have a furry dog that gets clipped, be sure to get a collar that will accommodate your dog without hair, on the smaller range and with hair on the larger range. For example if my dog has just been clipped and measures 14 1/12" then purchase a 14 - 16" collar. This will accommodate the hair growth. If my dog is due for a clip and measures 18", then purchase our 16 - 18" collar. There is enough there to fit and your collar will also be able to reduce to 17 or 16" after your dog has been clipped. If you select the wrong size, don't worry, we will work with you to get you the right size.
Here are a few different methods for measuring your dog's neck:
How do I measure my dog's neck?
Simply measure your dog’s neck for the proper collar size with a fabric measuring tape. If you don't have a fabric measuring tape wrap a string around your dog's neck. Mark the string then lay it our on a ruler or tape measure.
There should only be enough room between the pet’s neck and the collar to slip one finger between them comfortably. This ensures that the collar isn't too tight. Measure closer to the bottom of your dog's neck as gravity will take effect and make the collar sit lower on the neck.
Measure your dog's neck with a sewing tape....
Or use your dog's existing collar:
Buckle Collar: Remove your dog's current collar and stretch it out flat. Then measure from the center of the buckle to the current sizing hole or adjustment being used, as shown below.
Pressure clip nylon collar:
Measure from the far end of the female part of the closure to the bottom teeth of the male end, closest to the nylon as shown below.
What if my dog seems to be in between sizes and i'm not sure?
If your dog is full grown and their measurement is in between or overlapping in the size range listed, pick the smaller of the two sizes. ( For example, if my dog measures exactly 16", order the 14 - 16" collar). That way, you won't have extra leather hanging off of the end of the collar.
What if my dog is still growing?
If your dog is still growing, go with the larger option. Order your collar when your dog is almost fully grown or use our sizing guide below to have a good idea of how big your dog will be.
What if I buy the wrong size?
Don't worry, mistakes happen, we will work with you to get you the right size. Be comforted in knowing, that in the hundreds and hundreds of collars ordered, we have had only 4 that we have had to exchange for a different size. We will send a return ticket and send you out the next size up or down. Whatever you need.
What if I'm buying a gift and I don't have the dog close by?
Just use our chart below. If you choose the wrong size, we'll help you or the recipient get the right size, no problem! Mistakes happen!
"UNCONDITIONAL LOVE - HEALING - FORGIVENESS - NEW BEGINNINGS"
The Rescue Dog
Given a chance, I would be your friend for life; a loyal companion.
Given a chance, I would share your life; sacrifice mine to save yours.
Given a chance, I would learn to please you; we could teach each other.
Given a chance, I would love you – unconditionally.
Given a chance, I would.
Given a chance…

For the most part, when we go to a rescue to find our new forever friend, we find our soul mate. We don’t know about their past or what the future will hold, but we trust and we love. We commit to do the best we can along the path of our new life journey together.
Sometimes our new best friend needs a little divine intervention, so we created this collection of energized gemstones to help heal our Rescue Dog from the scars of the past and open the heart of your awesome Rescue to accept and give unconditional love.
OUR COLLARS ARE NOT ONLY BEAUTIFUL, THEY ARE DURABLE LUXURY GENUINE TOP GRAIN LEATHER DOG COLLARS.
EACH RESCUE DOG COLLAR HAS ONE OF EACH OF THESE GEMSTONE STUDS.
Our most important stone of this collection is Rose Quartz, the stone of “Unconditional Love”. It is the most important crystal of the heart. It purifies and brings deep inner healing, inner strength, self love, self trust and self worth. It helps comfort grief, soothes pain and it is considered one of the finest healing stones. It harmonizes the heart to the soul, providing pathways to new love.
Blue Lace Agate, is a soothing crystal which in the lighter shades of blue, can help overcome negativity to move past anger and fear. It can heal old wounds, mend emotional scars and help your Rescue let go of the past to embrace a new future. It will help to find patience, forgiveness, acceptance and recovery.
Amethyst, the "Stone of Spirituality and Contentment”, has a gentle calming energy that promotes peacefulness, happiness, and contentment, ushering lightness and lovingness to your Rescue's environment. It is a powerful protective stone with a healing effect on physical, emotional and psychological challenges and to help recover from the grief caused by his/her losses.
The Rescue dog’s spiritual healing will be enhanced by Sodalite by directing lightness to the heart encouraging self-esteem, creating inner peace and trust by “knowing” one’s destiny. When your pup is alone or sleeping, Sodalite will help prevent nightmares by providing protection from external negative influences and energies.
Lastly, a Heart Chakra crystal, Green Aventurine, while promoting love, it is a comforter and heart healer. It is a very powerful gemstone that promotes physical healing, while balancing mind, body and spirit. Green Aventurine encourages compassionate behaviour to help build your relationship and increase your bonding.
FOREVER LOVE AND PEACE TO YOU AND YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND.
