These highly reflective collars provide reflection up to 1,000 feet! It is important to note that these are reflective collars, not glow in the dark collars; they reflect when light (like a flashlight, etc) hits it. If adventure is your pups middle name, you are sure to fall in love with our adventure-ready line of waterproof collars that your dog will love! And, what is better than a gorgeous, low maintenance collar?
This collar is hand crafted from Biothane Gold High Flex Translucent coated webbing (this has a harder feel than our regular biothane collars) and features an embedded (it's actually sunk down into the webbing material) high-visibility 3M reflective strip down the center. It is durable, easy to clean and even stays flexible in cold weather! Our reflective biothane is also:
-stronger than nylon and leather
-cleanable with soap and water
Ordering and Measuring Instructions:
It is very important to carefully measure your pups neck (or current collar) to get an accurate collar fit as these collars do not have as big of an adjustable range as our fabric and canvas collars. When ordering, choose the size that has your dog's neck size set as the middle hole for the best fit. See the photo above for our recommendation on getting an accurate measurement.
There are 2 simple ways to measure your dog's neck size to determine which collar size will fit your pup best.
1. **This method is recommended** Gently use a piece of string or other soft material like a phone charger cord. Hold the end of the string/cable between your finger and thumb and gently wrap the other side around your dog's neck (the base of the neck above the shoulders) where the collar will sit. The tape should be snug but not too tight. If your dog has very thick fur be sure to get the tape closer to the skin. Let go of the string/cord and mark the spot in the middle of the string/cord with your finger that marked your pup's neck size. From there, use a tape measure to get the measurement from your string/cord measurement. You'll want to choose the size of collar that has your dog's neck size as one of the middle numbers. For example, if your pups neck is 17", you'll want to choose the 16"-18" collar.
2. Use their current collar (see photo above for more information on how to do this): Note: do not measure end to end! This is a very common mistake and if done this way, your measurement will be off by at least an inch or two resulting in a collar that is too big. In the photo, you'll see that the female end (open end of the buckle) is placed at the "0" on the measuring tape. Measure from this spot on the 'female' end of the buckle to just where the material ends (do not include the 'male' end of the buckle in your measurement). You'll see, in the photo above, that Leila's fabric buckle collar measures 17" and her perfect fit biothane collar is the 16"-18" size.
**If you are having trouble finding your pup's neck size, please don't hesitate to contact me for help or send pictures of your pups current collar next to a ruler/tape measure for me to help you determine the best size.
All holes on the collar are set 0.5" apart for a more personalized fit. Please note, an additional hole is punched before the first and after the last measurement of the size you order. For example, if you order a 16”-18” collar, your collar will be adjustable 15.5” to 18.5”.
You will also need to choose if you'd like stainless steel (silver) hardware or solid brass (gold) hardware.
The reflective webbing has a thickness of approximately 0.1 inch and the breaking strength is approximately 1000 lbs.
Engraved Name Plate:
Engraved name plates are available at an additional cost and attach to your new collar using the same strong rivets we use to make the collar.
Your name plate will come in the same color hardware that you choose and will come attached to your collar.
You can choose up to 3 lines of text. Please note, the more text you choose, the smaller the lettering will be.
