Who owns Big Dog chains? “We are mostly doing custom creations,” says Big Dog Chains’ founder Miguel Del Moral, a jeweller by training. Many of his customers, often millennials with no kids and large disposable incomes, buy gold or powder-coated collars through his website. If they also spring for the leash, they generally spend around $1,000.
