Why Biothane?

Why use Biothane and not Nylon or Leather?

Our furry friends love to get constantly dirty, wet, and smelly. That’s what dogs do, that’s what they love. However having to constantly wash and clean those muddy collars can get tedious, resulting in a costly trip to the pet store for a new one.

Compared to leather, Biothane is more durable, easier to clean and stronger, therefore it tends to outlast both leather and nylon. It is a polyester webbing with a TPU or PVC coating that makes it more durable, waterproof, and easy to clean. When your collar gets dirty, you simply wash it with soap and water, and wow, it’s looks new again.
Bonus, Biothane comes in many colour options, and the style of collar that can be produced from this material can vary. Therefore, there is no need to compromise looks over quality when it comes to your pet.

Cleaning Biothane?

Always rinse off your gear and hang to dry anytime you have been in the water or mud to keep it looking new. Always use a gentle dish soap for rinsing off dirt and dry once done. Do not use chemicals to clean your gear as it may lead to damage.
