The Story of Us

Who: BigDog is a woman owned and family ran business. was launched in 2004 as a webstore only offering hard to find collars. Throughout the years, different styles of collars were added along with leashes and harnesses.  June, 2018 brought the big decision to open a unique, boutique style storefront offering a variety of quality must haves for the doggie community. Any day, you will find Jeanette and her daughters, Grace and Katherine, working the store. Somedays you may catch Ted and Max..


What: We are a specialty shop. Rather than offering an assortment of pet supplies, we offer only Made in USA collars and leashes, USA sourced treats, and other products we truly believe in. We love helping dogs with special needs find safe, unique, and stylish collars! 

Where: We are located in Carthage Missouri.  On Historic Route 66 sits our town, on the east side of our beautiful square sits our boutique!

Why: Hard-to-fit and special needs dogs are overlooked by big box pet stores, and import-quality dog collars are often not as secure as a dog collar needs to be. Our goal is to unite dogs with the perfect collar that will fit their personality, size, and training needs - while supporting manufacturers that create jobs for US workers. 

Giving Back: In 2012 we donated about 40 collars and associated shipping costs to 18 different registered non-profit agencies. A portion of all profits from support agencies like the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption that help children waiting in the USA foster care to find permanent families.
