Default Christmas shopping: Made in the USA

I love shopping for the dogs for Christmas and I believe in supporting businesses that manufacture their products in the U.S. Here are a few of my favorites:

Dog Toys, Dog Beds, Dog leashes, Dog Accessories and more from Planet Dog

and

Home | West Paw Design

Does anyone know of other businesses with durable, safe products made in the U.S.?

Thanks in advance!

Another thought is Etsy. Much of their things is handmade!

http://www.dublindog.com/ Located in the US (NC)

http://www.ruffwear.com/ Located in the US (Redmond, Oregon)

These folks at Ruff Wear are AWESOME, donated a jacket for an emaciated Dobie pup we had in foster, and one of their employees went on to adopt the pup when they saw her flyer being passed around the offices!

Dog Beds, Orthopedic Dog Beds, Washable Dog Beds |Moon Dog Mattresses

My friend does this. Super high quality - costly - but made in USA, the materials the dog is closest to are organic. My dogs have 2 that were gifted to them and they love them.

Also - don't know where he gets the stuff from but this is great stuff you can have custom made: index

I have an 18 foot long lead in orange, my dogs all have 4 foot leashes with the safety clasp and a ring on the end and I had him make me a short coupler with the safety clasp so I can connect collars to harnesses.

You have to ask for a leash handle/loop though!

I really like their customer service. Prices are reasonable, I think, and the quality is good.

Also want to mention, as far as etsy if you are concerned about the safety of overseas products you should realize that some people use materials made in China or other place in order to manufacture their items, for example dog feeders, the bowls are almost invariably made in China. Others may use recycled materials which is great except you should know the source o know whether it is safe.
I have not been able to find any source for dog bowls made in the US so far (metal t least, I don't use plastic so haven't looked..)

M favorite small business company for dog stuff is Paco Collars www.pacocollars.com (handmade, great quality and guaranteed.)
