I felt inspired to create these unique ruffs in my India workshop after attending Canine Circus School in Oakland. It’s at this Art School for dogs that I trained my pibble ISHA to balance multiple balls on her nose, jump through hoops, and roll out her nap time mat and play sleep. I used one of my favorite street dogs in India to model my first prototype. Aside from these lightweight ruffs, I designed and created some rather spectacular one of a kind Elizabethan ruffs as well.
