Athena's collar collection has recently expanded. Not only does she have her stylish custom collars made by Sirius Republic, her Oregon Ducks collar to represent her parent's alma mater, as well as a couple of other odds and ends collars for various occasions, but she recently got a brand new collar. A girl can never have too many collars, right?
We decided to invest in a stank proof collar after one of Athena's collars was terribly ruined at daycare (meaning that the stank was never going to come out no matter what cleaning methods we tried). I'm not sure if she rolled in a pile of poo, or a dog peed right on her neck, but that collar had quite the stench to it after only one day of daycare.
Not only did we want a stank proof collar for odor control, but we also wanted something that we wouldn't have to worry about getting ruined at the park or at daycare and that could be easily cleaned. We were drawn to the Ruffwear Headwater Collar while at one of our favorite local pet shops.
Not only is Ruffwear a company local to Oregon, but they make AMAZING products. We own and love the Approach Pack as well as the Flat Out Leash both made by Ruffwear. The quality of Ruffwear products is very impressive, so it's no wonder that we decided to purchase one of their well-made collars to serve as Athena's daycare and park stank-proof collar.
What's great about the Headwater Collar is that aside from being stink proof, it is also waterproof (for all of that Portland rain). It also has a reflective pattern on it for visibility (during all of those cloudy Portland days). I'm sure it would also be a great collar for any dog who spends time in the water or rolling in the mud.
What kind of stank-proof collar do your dogs wear?
