Hemp Dog Collars
A good reason
Naturally Soft, Eco Friendly Too!
for choosing hemp dog collars, is that hemp is naturally hypoallergenic and earth friendly. What that means, is that dogs who
are prone to sensitive or itchy skin - and that means many of them - will be comfortable wearing this
very versatile type of fiber.
Not only that, but they will love the fact that it gets softer over time. This, in my mind, is a
really nice dog spoiling
reason for considering this fabric.
Some Interesting Facts About Hemp
Although the history of this fiber is really significant, I won't go into great detail about it. But,
here are a few highlights of interest that came up in my research:
- The first American Flag made by Betsy Ross was made of hemp.
- The Declaration Of Independence and the Constitution were both written on hemp paper.
- Hemp seed has the highest percentage of omega fatty acids - healthy stuff!
- The history of hemp dates back thousands of years BC and hemp was used extensively in ancient times for various everyday needs such as making canvas sails.
Eco and Pet Friendly Benefits of Hemp
Here are a few of the benefits to consider:
- It's biodegradable. We all know that
dog collars have to be replaced at some time, so it's nice to know that the worn out collar can go on its
way without contributing to ecological concerns.
- Blocks UV rays
- While hemp may be soft and gets even softer with use, it is one of nature's strongest fibers,
and will outlast most other fabrics. In other words, very durable and economical.
- If it gets wet, no problem, because it is resistant to mildew and shrinkage. So, as
you may have guessed it is also easy care - you can just toss the collar in the washer when it needs cleaning.
Are Hemp Dog Collars Safe For Pets?
Until recent times, hemp collars would be unfamiliar to many dog owners. Maybe some would even have wondered about the product's safety for pets. To clear up any confusion, the hemp used in pet accessories bears no relationship to the medicinal variety and is even grown differently.
However, Cannabis oil has been showing up in the news quite recently in reference to its use in treating various pet health conditions. See a link to an article on this topic at the end of this page.
, adding to its many other benefits, hemp fiber is also a safe
material for your
pet, and is grown and processed without using chemicals.
Furthermore, if you have a rowdy sort of dog that likes to play with his collar, it's strong enough to withstand his chewing without tearing.
