Online or via pickup, we provide organic, eco-friendly, and chemical-free products, plus items to beautify your home and spirit. As a small volunteer-run nonprofit, we can't compete with the pricing at large stores. However, having no paid staff allows all our net proceeds to fund cancer research and  treatment for working dogs. Sit, stay & shop for what truly matters — health, home, happiness and healing.

 

 

Bold. Shy. Playful. Protective.
No matter what yours or your dog’s personality, we have the perfect gear to show off the whole family in style! Puppies, dogs, adults, kids & even cats can get in on the tail-waggin' fun.

A Tail We Could Wag creates fun fashion accessories for pets and the people who love them. Since 1988, the casual look, quality craftsmanship, brilliant color and fun-spirit of our products have been inspired by nature itself and a passion for the great outdoors. Two decades ago it was a poem by W. H. Auden that really captured the essence of our company and led to our somewhat unusual name; "...in moments of joy, all of us wish we possessed a tail we could wag."

In partnership with some very special Mayan artisans living in the highlands of Guatemala, we have created a look and feel that is not only unique but helps support their small community. We take the color and texture of the Mayans' hand-woven crafts, then assemble and finish the products in the US for uncompromising quality and craftsmanship, delivering durable and colorfast products.

The Mayan people of Guatemala suffered great losses during the most recent civil war. Many women were left to raise families on their own in a country already depressed. These artisans had few skills outside of their unique style of weaving that is passed on from generation to generation. The company's partnership creates an opportunity for them to earn an income from their weaving skills while building community development and helping to increase self confidence and hope for themselves, their children, their families and their villages. They are the true heroes and the ones that make this all possible.

Leather Tip Belts

Our Leather Tip Belts are timeless, classic and uniquely sophisticated. In keeping with the soft grain and casual appearance of our leather, we backed our hand-woven designs with a natural cotton web. When we added the solid brass buckle, we knew we had designed a belt that would last a lifetime. SIZING: 1 1⁄4” width, 26" to 42", sized in 2-inch increments. Measured from the base of the buckle to the hole on the leather tip that is closest to the weave, allowing for approximately 2 inches of variation when wearing. We recommend ordering to pant size; order down if between sizes.
 
  • Colorful, hand-woven designs
  • Soft, custom leather tip
     
  • Solid brass buckle
  • Durable cotton backing
