Best Hemp Dog Collar

We’re all a little more Earth conscious these days.  It feels good to choose products that are sustainable, biodegradable, and best of all healthy and chemical free.  When you’re buying green, don’t forget about Fido.  A hemp dog collar is the must have accessory right now for the stylish dog about town. 

Sadly, hemp gets a bad rap in some circles.  There really is nothing illicit about this fiber.  Think of it as the druggie equivalent of non-alcoholic beer.  You can safely walk your hemp clad dog without attracting the attention of any of your drug crazed, neighborhood teenagers.  This stuff is, however, a major manufacturing miracle.  Hemp makes a strong durable fabric.  It’s  hypoallergenic, sustainable, all-natural, and it’s not going to end up clogging the landfill for several hundred thousand years when it wears out.  If it wears out.  Did I mention that hemp is durable?  Our founding fathers used hemp paper when they printed The Constitution, and The Declaration Of Independence, and those are holding up pretty well.  Just goes to show.

There are three very environmentally responsible manufacturers of pet products out there today.  Somewhere amongst their vast selection of hemp collars and other hemp products you should be able to find the perfect match for your best friend.

The Good Dog Company has been making pet products out of hemp and other natural fibers since 2003.  They have a good selection  of hemp dog collars, all manufactured in America by a local work force.  Their manufacturing process is focused on reduction and recycling. 

Planet Dog has been in the pet product business since 1997.  They pride themselves on values-based design, and a percentage of every purchase is donated to service dog programs.  Of course they sell the coveted hemp dog collar.

Earth Dog is 12 years old and still going strong.  They create eco-conscious products for dogs and the people who love them.  They have not just collars, but an entire line of hemp products.

You can’t go wrong with any one of these three.  All of them proudly manufacture sustainable, Earth friendly products, and that’s important, but what really shines through is dog love.  These people love their dogs, and that makes me feel good about buying their products for mine.   So while you’re shopping for your first hemp dog collar why not take a look at some of the other offerings.  Your best buddy deserves the best stuff right?
