Welcome to Beach Biscuit®, our small family business that was started out of our love for our pets and the beach! Located in the South Carolina lowcountry, our humble beginnings started with a desire to give our dogs simple, healthy treats. Before we knew it, we were providing our signature treats to pups near and far! And when we couldn’t find beachy and durable dog collars we liked, we got out the sewing machines and created our line of beautiful Beach Biscuit collars. And now, working with some very talented local artisans, we’re able to offer dog lovers our line of coastal themed jewelry and art items. We are proud to say ALL Beach Biscuit® products are hand crafted. No big factory, no mass production, and we don’t cut corners! This is a labor of love, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
About Our Collars: Beach Biscuit® collars, leashes and harnesses are hand crafted using the highest quality hardware & strapping available. We use the strongest contoured side release buckles; and heavy welded nickel plated steel rings. Our strapping is heavy duty rated, yet is soft, comfortable, and won’t irritate sensitive skin. We triple stitch all stress points, and our signature finishing process leaves NO rough edges on the collar that could rub your pup’s skin. And our d-rings are placed away from the clasp so there’s no annoying hardware clanking! Designer ribbons in colorful, summery patterns give our collars the coastal flair we love. And we don’t try to use your dog as free advertising by sticking a label on top of the pattern that you bought the collar for in the first place! Our label is discreetly placed on the underside…. where we think a label should be.
*Please measure your dog’s neck for correct size prior to ordering to avoid exchanges
*Items are hand crafted and may have up to .5″ variances.
*Care instructions: Soak in warm soapy water, or place in a wash bag for gentle machine washing. Hang Dry.
*Decorative ribbon can be sensitive to harsh use; such as biting, chewing, nail scratching.
*Do not use this product for tie-outs….. better yet, don’t tie your dog up outside. It’s not very nice.
Why the name Beach Biscuit? Well, our original name was Beach Beggin’ …until a big pet food corporation decided people would think our hand crafted items were actually made by their factory (as if!). Their legal team sent some ugly letters, and long story short, we changed our name. We make our products by hand, and we know that makes them better. And what else is better homemade? Biscuits!!! So here we are, Beach Biscuit. Making the products you love, with love.
Beach On Friends!

I’ve been struggling with whether I should make a public statement about a very personal matter, here on my business page. But when I saw the below statistics, I knew I had to use the forum I’ve been given if it can help even one of the thousands who follow us.
*In the US appx 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
*As of January 2019 there are more than 3.1 million women in the US with a prior or current breast cancer
*About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer.
*In 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
*On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer worldwide.
I must admit, I was not truly aware of these breast cancer statistics. But as of a few weeks ago I became one of these numbers when a tiny spot was found on a routine mammogram.
I must admit, I did not understand that there are different types of breast cancer. But as of a few weeks ago I found that I have a less common type called Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC). A cancer I had never heard of, but now know it most commonly affects younger women.
I must admit, I did not know that a woman dies every 13 minutes from breast cancer worldwide. But as of a few weeks ago that staggering fact became my greatest fear.
I have every intention of being a SURVIVOR statistic. And I will owe a part of that success to a routine mammogram that found my cancer early. Please, Please, PLEASE get your mammograms! Don’t put it off. Don’t think “it won’t happen to me”. It’s one easy step that may save your life. Your family, friends and fur babies need you. And my staff and I will be right here, creating awesome Beach Biscuit gear for your sweet pets for years and years to come.
Thank you for listening. Now let’s get back to the beach!
