Somewhere along the way I began doing my typical crazy-dog-lady (a proudly self-proclaimed title) stuff by working with textiles to create a functional lead that would be convenient for agility, hiking and all the other activities I get up to with my dogs.
In time, I did just that. Suddenly I was taking orders and before I knew it, I was running a steady little homegrown business out of my garage. (Say whaaat? Crazy, right? Yep.)
