Valgray, Our Story.

Valgray established in 2019.
Valgray is a fashion-forward, luxury lifestyle brand for pets and their parents established in 2019 by a local, South African, dog-loving family of innovative designers and creators.
 
Family founders, Marco and Rhodé, have worked in design most of their adult lives and have a range of expertise, including architecture, jewellery design, and an array of digital marketing and creative branding skills. All of which has added to the creation of the Valgray experience, from concept to client.

Valgray is more than just a premium pet lifestyle brand. After adopting their beloved fur child Juno, a Chinese Shar-Pei, Marco and Rhodé created their brand out of love, admiration and passion.
 

“Our dogs are our worlds. They are angels placed in our hands, and they deserve so much more than just the ordinary. That is why our mission through Valgray is to design and create beautiful, sophisticated alternatives to everyday dog accessories.” 

Since the launch of the very first Valgray collar in February 2019, the team is on a passion-fuelled mission to expand their product range to include different tastes while still keeping to their signature modern and sophisticated style.

Thanks to the amazing support Marco, Rhodé and Juno have received thus far, they can give back. The team are proud of helping doggos in need through several charitable initiatives and Project Cuddles & Crunchies. This would not be possible without YOU and your fur babies support, and for that, the Valgray team thanks you!

Collars for all dog sizes!

Valgray is one of the few brands that cater for the truly tiny pooch with our X-Small collars. We also go the extra mile to ensure we cater for the giant breeds with measurements reaching up to 75cm.

Never try to guess your dog's neck size! Avoid disappointment by first making sure you measure your pup’s neck for the most accurate sizing.

Then, refer to our sizing chart below to find the most appropriate collar size for your doggie. Remember to select a collar size that will fit comfortably and allow for movement.

Personal customisation

We try our best to cater to every breed, but some doggos might need a little extra at-home customisation to achieve the perfect fit. Our PVC-coated nylon straps are soft, making adjustments at home very easy. Use a standard leather punching tool to add additional holes, or use a utility knife to trim the length of your collar.
