“The ideas and styles for the custom harnesses are endless. Customers get to choose the color scheme, logos, teams, names, spikes, stones etc. Here at Scrappy’s Collars you get to design the harness exactly how you want it.”
BWW: Can you introduce yourself to our readers?
SC: Scrappy’s Collars started business over 13 years under another name. For the last four years decided to start my business on my own with only my family by my side. Four years ago I set to create a whole new line of my own different then every other collar vendor out there. I wanted to offer the customer more than just a spiked up collar something unique that not only fit their style but also the dogs personality.
BWW: When did you fall in love with the Bully Breed?
SC: I fell in love with the bully breed over 19 years ago. I liked everything thing about the breed strong, tough, loyal, and loving.
BWW: Can you tell us about Scrappy’s Collars? How did you get in to making custom made Bully Gear?
SC: What start it all for me was that I could never find a spiked up collar, or harness for my Pit Bull. Told my wife I would like to start selling leather dog accessories, and of course she laughed and replied “who would buy leather dog accessories for their dog?” I didn’t let it discourage me I knew I would be able to make a business out of it. Here I am 13 years and counting.

SC: Yes, I actually own one old time American Bully she’s almost 12 years old. I’ve own only Pit Bulls and American Bullies for almost 20 years now, and have no complaints have been the best breed to own. They are more than just a pet to my family and I they are family to us.
BWW: Do you have favorite collar that you have made?
SC: I think my favorite of all time is the first collar I created all on my own. Stitched up on my own of course I doubted myself if I could do this on my own. I did with all the support of my family. It was a 3″ collar Black Gucci w/ name and Spurs logos on the sides.
BWW: What separates you from other people who make custom Bully Gear?
SC: What separates me from all the other collar vendors out there is that I’m here in this bully game not wanting all the business out there for only me. There is plenty of business out there for everyone to make money. I don’t envy anyone’s work, because we all offer different styles.
