Good point - I try to buy products from the U.S. but it seems they are getting harder and harder to find. Kong used to be one of my favorite brands, but some of their products are now made in china.

Thanks for the Paco site - beautiful collars!

I always try to shop local and support "Made in the USA" products. My favorite company for collars and leashes is made right here in my state of Colorado:

Bold Lead Designs | Handcrafted leather dog leashes and service dog equipment

They also make service dog equipment as well.

I was going to post about Wigzi toys, and found this site that lists the country of origin.

My old neighbors make collars, leashes, harnesses, etc. They aren't really every day collars for a GSD type dog, since they are fabric, but they have really nice fabric and can make matching flowers or bow ties. I love their work!

Others may use recycled materials which is great except you should know the source or know whether it is safe.
I just re-read my post and I wanted to clarify, I meant that even if the seller is in the US/North America; their materials might still have been from overseas/China...
