Lots of new and exciting things have been added to the website. I sometimes forget that not everyone is on our Facebook page so here’s all the news if you missed it!

We had a request for a less girly version of The Sweetheart, so we came up with The Braveheart! It’s available as a wide flat collar and also as a wide training collar.

Our latest foster failure, Bruno, needed a collar that was as unique as he is. The Jolly Roger in chestnut and tarnished silver perfectly compliments his coat, which is blue fawn sable smut in case you were wondering! This design is available as a wide flat collar too.

You can now add some Swarovski crystals to your order [collars, leads, cuffs, etc.] by adding this bling item to your cart. A huge range of colours are available. Below is a Sweetheart training collar with some clear crystals and a Bubbler with fire opal crystals and a matching narrow leash.

Our all-in-one leash has been given a slight facelift. It now has a keeper so you can tighten it around your dog’s neck and won’t need to worry about him or her backing out of it.

The Paxy was devised for a Koolie that shuts down when she wears a chain collar but has such a slender neck that she can easily back out of flat collars. Her owner is delighted with her collar and sent us this lovely testimonial.

I often hear people refer to our products as “Staffy collars”. Not true, we cater to every breed, size and strength! Below are a regular Nightowl and a regular Lunatic with matching leads made for two miniature Schnauzers.

We had a special request for a coupler, so Dave created a two piece attachment that works with any of our leads. While I would never walk our dogs with one [for safety reasons], they’re great for dogs that walk nicely on a lead and have bombproof temperaments.

During our birthday promotion we had our first order for a Diddley Eye martingale, so before I sent it off the lovely Chopper strutted his stuff in it for the camera.

I’ve been waiting for ages to add the Asteroid Belt martingale to the site. It’s the collar I want Dave to make for Angel, but he never has time between orders. [Which is a good complaint I suppose!] Thankfully someone else ordered one, so before posting it tomorrow I got our dog training buddy, Maggie the German Shepherd, to pose in it. Such a pleasure to work with a well trained dog after the nightmare I had trying to work with the very easily distracted Bruno yesterday!!

Date for your diary… The Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park is holding it’s inaugural Pets Parlour on Sunday 11 September. Ruthless Leather and Ruthless Photos will both have stands there on the day. To mark the occasion we’re having the following promotions:

RL > Order and pay for a collar on the day [in person or online] and receive a complimentary 4ft standard leash worth $82.50 with your order. Bring your dog along if you want us to measure their neck for you.

RP > Book and pay for a photo session on the day [in person or by email, session to take place before the end of 2011] and receive a $100 voucher to put towards your print/product order.
