Four Black Paws came about in 2010 because Sarah’s (owner) beautiful black Lab was a girl in need of feminine embellishments. She was constantly searching for collars and accessories for Leila but they were either expensive or too boring for their taste.
As she started her first teaching job, she decided to give collar making a go. Sarah has
since added bow tie, collar flowers and dog waste bag dispensers. She has also created collars and accessories out of recycled materials such as shirts and window treatments.
In early 2014, seeing the need for more organic, earth-friendly pet products, Sarah launched the new “Organic Collection“
What does she do when she’s not teaching or making pet products? In early 2011 her family decided to add two new bundles of joy to their home, Gunnar and Cooper. They are extremely active with their dogs, so if they aren’t out at a show for Four Black Paws or working around the house, her little fur family is out doing competitions such as dock jumping, weight pull and conformation with them along with a little hunting here and there.
The Four Black Paws Organic Collection is an exclusive collection of dog collars and accessories made from 100% organic cotton fabric.
Every fabric collar includes:
-Designer, 100% organic cotton fabric lined with interfacing for structure and strength
-Extremely high strength thread that won’t lose its strength through your tough adventures
-Triple stitched stress points for durability
-Curved side release buckle that hugs your pup’s neck for comfort
-Heavy duty cast nickel D-ring
Every removable bow tie is:
-Created from 100% organic cotton designer fabric
-Backed with interfacing so that the bow tie retains its shape.
-Created to be removable with a Velcro strap.
I cannot get over how great the quality is. Sarah is very meticulous and does beautiful work. The best part? Duke looks adorable and it doesn’t bother him! I’m pretty sure this collar will last him forever.
Each bar weighs between 4.5oz and 5oz.
I absolutely love this shampoo bar that smells just like oatmeal and honey. It reminds me of the delicious scented natural oatmeal/honey bars at Whole Foods. You know the ones that smell so good but aren’t offensive. Not only does this smell heavenly, but it’s for sensitive skin. My little guy gets rashes under his armpits and part of his belly, so I have to use products that do not contain harsh chemicals. I’m happy to report that his skin reacts well to this soap, in fact, I think it helps his rashes!
What’s great about this shampoo is that a conditioner isn’t necessary. If your pup is stinky, double wash him. 🙂
It is a bar soap, so you have to suds it yourself. It’s not as easy as squirting liquid shampoo into your hands, but it’s not a huge deal. I like that it’s easy to pack if you’re traveling with your pup. It also doesn’t take up a lot of space in your shower/ bath area.
We are definitely fans of Four Black Paws and can’t wait to see what they have in store in the future!

Do you ever dress up your pups? 🙂
4 Black Paws was kind enough to send their products to try out. As usual, I promise to give my honest opinion.
