6 Reasons Why You Should Consider Hemp for Your Dog's Collar

Upgrade to a hemp collar for your pup!

Hemp dog collars have become increasingly popular among pet owners looking for more durable, sustainable and comfortable options. Not only is hemp hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and durable, but it also comes in various styles and metal finishes to find the perfect collar for your pup. Last but not least, the eco-friendly properties of hemp are undisputed!

Learn about the six reasons hemp is the ideal choice for your dog's collar.

Hemp is Naturally Strong and Durable

Hemp is renowned for its strength, durability, matching, and even out-lasting traditional leather or synthetic collars. It's just as strong as cotton but doesn't shrink when washed.

Its tight weave means it won't stretch or fray either, making it an easy choice to withstand your pup's natural wear and tear.

Hemp has excellent tensile strength. Hemp dog collars are the most famous eco-friendly collars, and there is no match for them in terms of durability, sustainability and comfort.

Increasingly, dog owners switch away from synthetics

Hemp is a natural source of the strongest fibres, which means a well-made hemp collar will last for many swims, romps and tugs. Leather isn't suitable for swimming, and synthetic collars pick up smells quickly.

Hemp is also a natural and vegan material. So it has the bunny stamp of approval.

Another benefit of hemp is its natural resistance to UV rays meaning the collar won't fade or lose

elasticity as fast as other materials when exposed to sunlight. A big reason as all dogs are outdoor enthusiasts.

This brings us to the second reason for choosing a hemp dog collar.

Hemp is hypoallergenic and has antimicrobial Properties

One of the main benefits of hemp is its hypoallergenic and antimicrobial properties meaning it's perfect for dogs with skin sensitivities or allergies.

Its resilience against bacteria and germs also makes it an ideal choice to prevent unwelcome infections due to contact with dirt, mud, water, or unwelcoming smell.

Another benefit of hemp dog collars is that they naturally resist mildew and mould.

This is because hemp fibre does not contain the same proteins that can cause allergic reactions in some dogs.

Hemp is antimicrobial as its fibre has compounds of cannabidiol and cannabichromene which have shown antimicrobial properties. For this reason, hemp can inhibit the growth of microorganisms like fungi and bacteria.

Hemp is eco-friendly, sustainable, and renewable

Hemp is also a highly renewable resource. It's grown worldwide, so it doesn't require loads of water or particular soils like many other crops.

Hemp also doesn't need artificial fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides and usually regenerates itself without replanting. As a result, it has become an increasingly attractive choice for eco-friendly shoppers who want to help protect the environment as much as possible.
