The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar is one of Blueberry Pets’ recent products. Now Blueberry Pet is obviously a pet company. It has a collection of more than 300 products that it has pushed out into the market.
It is more popularly known for its various designs of dog collars. However, it also has a collection of pet toys, pet crates and even pet grooming equipment.
That said, the Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar is a regular collar that can be worn all day every day if need be.
We’ll give you full details on this collar in subsequent subs. So be sure to stick with us throughout this review. Now, for first things first…
Can Any Dog Wear The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar?
The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar is an OK choice for medium to large dogs. But not so much for small dogs. The reason is this collar is kinda bulky, so it could prove to be quite heavy for small dogs.
Features Of The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar
The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar is made out of nylon. The nylon used on this one is actually heavy duty and translates into the weight of the collar itself. Remember how we said that the collar is not the best option for a small dog? Well it is because of this.
However, the thickness of the collar makes it mighty durable. In fact, just looking at it, you’ll know that the collar was built to last.
Now, probably because of how thick the collar is, Blueberry padded the inside with neoprene. And just like the outside, the inside is heavily padded.
The idea is that since heavy duty nylon might be scratchy, dogs need something to protect their necks or the parts of their body that comes in contact with the collar.
Hence the neoprene padding. In addition to all these, the material used on this collar is reflective. Reflective kinda means “glow in the dark”. So when your dog is wearing this collar, he can be seen in the dark or in dim light.
The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar comes in a selection of what Blueberry Pet calls “fluorescent colors”. The colors are four actually; green, orange, pink and yellow. They are all bright colors and add to the visibility of the collar.
As regards cleaning, we would recommend that you do a wipe down or a brush down. Just don’t do anything that requires the collar to be submerged in water. This collar is heavyweight and could take years to dry (yea, that’s an exaggeration).
One more thing. This dog collar isn’t meant to be used for a tie out. This means you cannot tie your dog to a pole or something, using this collar.
The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar uses a regular plastic buckle. The color of the buckle is one that matches the collar. However, operating this buckle is more technical than it is on other collars.
You know how plastic buckles are made of two parts? We’ll call the part that “receives” the female and the other is automatically the male. So the female has to pass through the D Ring before it can receive the male.
It is also the buckle that is responsible for the fitting. Both the male and female buckle are attached to stretchy materials. The material will stretch to make way for the size of your dog’s neck. So, you shouldn’t be expecting to see a tri glide on this collar.
3. Leash And ID Tag Ring
The leash ring on this one is an O ring that is sewn into the collar. The O ring is another somewhat complex feature on this collar. We’ll leave it to you to figure it out if you don’t mind.
Anyway, because of the way the ring is sewn in, it should stay put when it is pulled on and all. Plus the ring is coated to make sure that it is rust and tarnish resistant.
There is a plastic ID tag ring that is attached to the logo. You can basically attach anything small to it; dog charms, jewelry and of course ID tag. But do not attach heavy stuff, especially a leash (assuming a leash hook will pass through).
Is The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar User Friendly?
We would have really liked for this collar to have been easier to use. For a collar that is meant to be worn every day we would have thought that user friendliness would be high up there in the list of priorities.
Granted, working this collar is something that you could get used to. However, we think it would have been better if one could understand the workings from the get go.
Pros Of The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar
The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar comes in fluorescent colors. Now add that to the fact that the material of this collar is reflective and you have a pretty bright collar.
Every component of this dog collar is heavy duty. The nylon, the neoprene padding and even the metal. So yes, durable it is.
With a heavy duty neoprene padding on the inside, the Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar is pretty comfortable. your dog should be able to wear it all day every day without injuries or such.
Cons Of The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar
The Blueberry Pet Reflective Dog Collar is kinda complicated to figure out. As we earlier said, a collar that is going to be worn every day should be easy to operate because you’ll have to operate it every day. You will get the hang of it but it will take a couple of wears.
Also, this collar is kinda heavy and so not suitable for small dogs. Unless you have no problems with having your dog carry the weight of the world on his neck. OK we exaggerate but you get the point.
