Kate Ross started Tartan Hound in the summer of 2002. Using her background in the arts combined with her love for dogs, a whole new look for canines began to take form. Like their human companions, dogs deserve to have choices in their lifestyle. From collars and leads to bowls and beds, Tartan Hound's mission is to build a line of quality products that can exapress each dog's personality. Taking inspiration from many of the American designers that rule the fashion world today, Kate has created a line of collars that express a casual sophistication. Using many of the materials we love as humans, Tartan Hound collars are stylish, comfortable and durable. Offering styles that use the traditional nickel or brass hardware, to decorative adjustable sport collars, Tartan Hound has filled the void in the world of canine fashion.
