Oil Cloth Collar Review
Jackson Studios let us review their super unique oil cloth dog collars. We tried out the 'Headed West' style, but they come in a variety of patterns and color options. The sizing is personalized for each pet.
"This box is cool and all, but are we going to try the collar on?"
Isn't this gorgeous?!? Truly 'wearable art'. No other doggie at the dog park will have one like this!
So how are these collars made? Well, every collar at Jackson Studios starts out as a natural woven material. They are each individually measured, cut, hand painted and signed.
Signed? Of course! They are works of art! The finished designs are protected with a durable, water repellent finish. The finish coat makes cleaning the collar a snap! Simply wipe clean with a damp cloth.
They come in a variety of colors and amazing styles, like the Pheasant feather, or the blue Cheetah Print with sparkles. Each one is hand made and hand painted - the ultimate personalized collar.
"Oh, yeah, I look good in this collar."
So how did Francine at Jackson Studios get started making these one of a kind collars?
She says, "I'm always on the "hunt" for something unique! When looking for cool collars for my dogs I wanted something more than just the leather, ribbon or nylon webbing which is so common...thus the creation of my hand painted oilcloth collars which truly are "wearable art for your pet"!"
Tibby and I agree! These are definitely 'cool collars'!
Francine also makes adorable collar tags - check out the Olive U tag! Love it!

Independent, curious, highly intelligent,clever, mischievous, precocious, strong-minded, playful. Collected from various sources:
1 -Stubbornness. Tibetan Terriers have an independent mind of their own and can be stubborn and manipulative. You must show them, through absolute consistency, that you mean what you say.
2-Suspiciousness or timidity when not socialized enough.
3-"Separation anxiety" (destructiveness and barking) when left alone too much.
4-Lively and playful at times, yet also calm and low-key.
5-Makes a good watchdog but is not aggressive with people.
6-Most are amiable with other animals, though perhaps a bit bossy.
7- The Tibetan Terrier is very stubborn in general and must be shown from Day One that you are in control.
8-An athletic and agile sure-footed climber, and a clever problem-solver who often uses his paws with great adeptness to open doors and hold toys.
9- 1/3 Dog + 1/3 Cat + 1/3 Teenager = 1 Tibetan Terrier
10-Tibetan Terriers are family-oriented: they love to play games and participate in activities with their people.
Patience and a sense of humor are musts for the people of a Tibetan Terrier.
