Frequently Asked Questions:
What is custom embroidery?
Crew LaLa is happy to announce that we are now offering custom collar and bandana embroidery! Customers have been requesting this option for years, so we're happy to finally release this much anticipated addition to our product catalog. Custom embroidery is a fun way to add your pup's name, and or phone number, to your new collar or bandana. For only $18, you can add this personalization to any collar or bandana!
Can I choose my embroidery color?
Of course! We offer our custom embroidery in a variety of colors. Each color corresponds to a webbing color that we already offer on our collars. As a standard, when adding embroidery to your collar, the embroidery will match the color webbing you selected. However, you're welcome to select a custom color for your pieces. Simply type the color you'd like to see on your collar or bandana! A chart is posted below for you reference.
Can I choose my embroidery font?
Definitely! A drop down menu is available on each listing with our font options. We offer our custom embroidery in a variety of fonts! The majority of our fonts should be familiar to our customer, with the exception of one brand new cursive script.
How do I figure out what size my pup needs?
As all of our products are custom made to order, finding the right fit for your pup is very important! Measure his or her neck's exact circumference with a soft tape measure to determine which size is appropriate. Please note that we have already factored in some extra room for comfort, so no need to add any spare inches to the length! Please refer to our SIZE CHART for exact measurements.
What if my pup is in-between sizes?
If you feel like your pup may be in-between sizes, please include your dog's neck measurement in the SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS box in each product listing OR in the SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS box in your shopping cart. As all items, are custom made to order, we have no problem making a custom sized S/M, M/L, etc! If you have any questions about sizing, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.Can I request a different sized bow for my collar?
Example - I would prefer a Small bow, but my dog needs a Medium collar.
We're happy to substitute the bow size on any of our collars. Please refer to our bow size chart to determine which size bow you feel would best suit your pup. Specify any substitutions in the NOTES section in the product listing OR in the SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS box in your shopping cart.
Your bows are removable, right?
Yes! Our bow's unique design includes elastic snap attachments that attach securely to your collar & are still easily detachable.
How do I add custom buckle engraving to my collar? Does this cost extra?
Add personalized engraving to your buckle with your dog's name, address and phone number for a sleek, stylish & truly custom look! There is an $18 charge to add custom buckle engraving to each collar. We have a great variety of font styles available.

I love my pup's new collars and leashes! How do I wash them?
To keep your Crew LaLa™ accessories spic and span, all collars and leads are washable. We suggest hand washing in mild detergent and laying flat to dry. Do not machine wash. For added protection, apply **Scotchgard™ to your collar before use. To prevent your buckle from becoming overly scratched, we recommend refraining from attaching metal dog tags to your collar. Extend the life of your Crew LaLa™ products by alternating your favorite styles - after all, they are your dog's only true accessories! Please keep in mind that no collars are indestructible. General wear & tear will be determined by your pup's lifestyle & behavior (and their playmates!). If your dog routinely plays in water/sand/mud, we suggest alternating our bow collars with a "Ruff-N-Tuff" style!
**DISCLAIMER: Please do not use Scotchgard™ if your dog has any skin allergies.
