BIJA COLLARS If any city can support not one, but two dog-collar shops, it’s canine-friendly Berkeley. We have written about Paco Collars on Shattuck. Now comes news of Bija Collars, which has opened an appointment-only store on University Avenue. Described as “a two dog and one woman shop” by owner Apryl Guisasola, who lives nearby, Bija has been selling its custom, hand crafted collars, leashes, and belts through other retail outlets, including Redhound in Oakland. Bjia Collars is at 1640 B University Ave (between California and Jefferson). Send a message to the store via its website to make an appointment.
