Durable dog collar
A dog collar is an essential accessory for every dog owner (provided you are not a harness only owner). Not only does it help you keep your dog under control, but it also does its job as a means of identification. When choosing a collar for your dog, we believe that sustainability should be paramount. A good dog collar should withstand the wear and tear of daily use and exposure to the elements. Here are some factors that make a good dog collar durable:
Is my collar durable?
The material the collar is made of plays an important role in its durability. A good dog collar should be made of high-quality, durable materials such as Biothane, nylon or leather. These materials are resistant to abrasion and to a large extent also resistant to exposure to water and the elements. GULA collars and leashes are made with Biothane. Of all the materials mentioned above, Biothane is the most resistant to water and the elements and is also extremely strong.
The hardware of the collar should also be durable. The buckle, D-ring and other metal parts must be made of high quality materials such as stainless steel or brass. These materials are rust resistant and can withstand the rigors of everyday use. GULA collars and regular leashes are made with solid brass. Brass does not rust, is anti-bacterial and also wears in the same color. As a result, our products still look beautiful after a long time.
Collar rivets or stitching:
The connectors on the collar must be strong and durable. A double or triple stitched rivet is ideal as it adds strength and durability to the collar. At Gula we work with double brass rivets.
Collar size and fit:
A good dog collar should fit your dog comfortably and at the same time firmly. A collar that is too tight or too loose can easily break or slip off. When choosing a collar, make sure it fits your dog well and has enough room for it to grow. At GULA we offer our buyers to have a custom collar made. When purchasing via the website, our buyers always have the option to pass on the neck size of the dog. This will then be taken into account during production.
Is the collar easy to clean:
A good dog collar should be easy to clean. A collar that is difficult to clean can become smelly or harbor bacteria, which can cause skin irritation or infection. Look for collars that can be machine washed or easily wiped clean. GULA'S Biothane collars and leashes are very easy to clean under the tap or with a damp cloth.
In short, when choosing a collar for your dog, it is important to choose one that is durable and can withstand daily use. A good dog collar should be made of high-quality materials, durable hardware, strong connection and have the right size and fit. By considering these factors, you can find a collar that will provide comfort and security for your dog for years to come.
