Tahoe Dog Gear dog collars and leashes are designed and made locally in Lake Tahoe and Truckee California. Our exclusive webbing designs reflect the Tahoe dog lifestyle and are built for the trail dogs, water dogs, and snow dogs in Tahoe.
Our art is designed in house and sublimated into 1 inch wide, hydrophobic quick-dry, washing machine safe, strong, and durable polyester webbing. We build our products with the burly DuraFlex Big Dog Wienerlock side release buckles made to handle heavy loads and abuse. Molded from Dupont acetal, it is the best material to perform in freezing, snowy, wet, and arid conditions.
We also create all our own art in house for our logo'd shirts, hoodies, and hats.
Tahoe Dog Gear dog collars, leashes, shirts, and hats can be purchased online here at www.TahoeDogGear.com.
We can also be found at select retailers.
Come meet us and bring your pup for a personal fitting at one of our pop up stores at festivals at Squaw Valley, Truckee Thursdays, Tahoe Donner, and around Truckee and Lake Tahoe California.
"Blue" the dog incorporates the Lake Tahoe outline for the head, a "D" nose for "Dog", a "G" tongue for "Gear", and Emerald Bay as the wagging tail. "Blue" represents all that is great about our best friends and humankind partners. Our dog collars and dog leash products are designed for the Tahoe dog active lifestyle.
We are all about the Lake Tahoe lifestyle. It usually includes taking your dog on an adventure. Time to start the day with a morning coffee...bring your dog. Heading out on the trail to hike, bike, or run...bring your dog. Going for a day at the lake throwing sticks, paddleboarding, kayaking, boating, swimming, or just sitting on a pier playing a ukulele...bring your dog. Fresh snow inviting you out to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, sled, or build a snowman...bring your dog. Sitting in Adirondack chairs on the deck drinking a fine cold beverage...bring your dog. After a long day out and about, settling in to lounge in front of the fire...trying finding room around your dog. We get it.
Inspired in Tahoe. Designed in Tahoe. Made in Tahoe. Our products are inspired from our Tahoe adventures. We are located in Truckee, CA at elevation 6400' near famed Donner Pass. We are on the trails, at the lake, or on the snow almost every day. Our products are well tested!
People ask us about where we find our webbing with Tahoe designs. We make all our webbing! Mike and Michaela create all the artwork and then have the webbing sublimated with our designs. The designs are permanently embedded into the polyester webbing. The webbing is exclusively made and used for our products only. Then we gather all our parts and hand build them in Truckee and Tahoe City. Every part of each collar and leash has gone through Michaela and Mike's hands! Our friend Kariño sews many of our collars and leashes. All hardware are of the highest quality and spec'd for use in Tahoe's harsh freezing and water environments, and are sourced from California whenever possible.
Getting Tahoe Dog Gear feels as good as being scratched behind the ears. Tahoe makes us wag.
We are a father-daughter business created for our love of dogs and to create vocational opportunities for Michaela and others in our community. Read about us in the Sierra Sun and Tahoe Bonanza papers!
Michaela has received certificates of completion from Sierra College in Veterinary Assistant, Veterinary Assistant II: Canine Reproduction, and Veterinary Assistant III: Practical Skills in 2016, and Wilderness First Aid for Dogs from T3 Adventures Wilderness Education!
