Small Dog Owners Embrace New Collar Sliders as Fashion Accessory

SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) -  Pet Fashion Designer, Susan Lanci Launches New Line of Dog Collar Sliders. Recently launched small dog collar accessories have been nicknamed "sliders" by creator and pet fashion designer extraordinaire, Susan Lanci, of Susan Lanci Designs. Susan has been creating high quality, practical and functional products for puppies and small dogs for over six years now. She specializes in the ability to manufacture and stylize her creations using genuine Ultrasuede® and real Swarovski crystals. Customers may create their own custom combinations of colors and adornments of dog harnesses, collars, and leashes by visiting the newly re-launched G.W. Little website ( which has an entire section devoted to Susan Lanci.

Dog collar sliders are designed to fit flat 1/2" and 5/8" wide collars. Susan originally created sliders for use with her line of Ultrasuede collars, but quickly discovered they look great on any flat collar up to 5/8 inches wide. The G.W. Little website has produced videos showing detail of the sliders up close. They have also created a "mix and match" sale offering where shoppers may combine any style sliders for quantity discounts. The fun part of using sliders to dress up dog collars is their versatility. It's easy to combine different styles and colors on the same collar to suit your own personal taste. Since they slide on and off flat collars easily, consumers have plenty of options when it comes time to dress up any old collar, or switch between collars. Why stop there? These sliders will look great just about anywhere. Attach to your shoe laces, luggage tags, purse strings, key chains, hats, or anywhere a small belt loop will work to hold them in place.

Initially Susan has created a dozen different designs ranging from butterflies to flower petals, cupcakes, sunflowers, ladybugs, strawberries, monkeys, and her signature big bow with a large emerald cut crystal. It won't stop there however; look for new sliders to complement almost any occasion or holiday. Sliders will fit over most of the adorned dog collars in Susan Lanci's line. Pair the cupcake slider to the cupcake collar, or the big bow slider with the double row of big "bling" crystals. The advantages of using genuine Ultrasuede are numerous. It's very lightweight, easy to clean and maintain, has superior durability, new EcoDesign manufacturing process, resists scratching, no threads to pull or fray, and won't absorb stray hairs.

Small dog collars will never be the same! Create your own custom combination and submit photos or video, of your pet wearing them to G.W. Little for display on their website. G.W. Little has the largest online selection available of Susan Lanci items, and many custom styles may be special ordered in as little as two weeks.
