A good reason 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.
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:
Here are a few of the benefits of hemp dog collars to consider:
Martingale dog collars are made with a safety,
loop-on-loop system that tightens a 'controlled' amount around a dog's
neck. In other words
this type of collar tightens when your dog pulls and loosens when he stops pulling to help make sure that the collar is never too tight
While these are helpful with any dog that tends to pull, they are especially good for dogs with slim necks, to prevent them from escaping or backing out of the collar.
Measuring your dog's neck and picking the right size is important to have a secure fit.
Martingale-style collars give you gentle control over your pet while training.
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.
So, 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 hemp collar, it's strong enough to withstand his chewing without tearing.
That being said, if he does manage to snag a piece of the collar and swallow it, no harm done - hemp fiber is digestible.
This cannot be said for cotton based fibers that could cause a digestive problem.
If you're liking the notion of environmentally friendly hemp dog collars, here's one with a cozy fleece lining for an extra little bit of TLC to spoil your furry friend. Plus you can get a nice leash to match!
I hope you're getting excited about hemp dog collars for your pets - your dog will thank you!
