The producer of the Max And Neo Reflective Collar, Max And Neo, is all about dogs. It has all sorts of things like collars, harnesses and different kinds of leashes.
One of the most notable things about Max And Neo is that it donates one product to a dog rescue for every one product that you buy. In fact as of September 2018, it had donated over 167,000 dog products to more than 1900 dog rescues.
That said, let’s head into reviewing this collar.
Who Is The Max And Neo Reflective Collar For?
Any dog should be OK using this collar. It comes in a variety of sizes which range from extra-small to extra-large.
Features Of The Max And Neo Reflective Collar
The Max And Neo Reflective Collar is made of two layers of nylon webbing. Both layers are, in their own right, pretty strong and durable. Doubled, they are even thicker.
The idea behind doubling the layers is that dogs who are fond of chewing or clawing or slipping their way through this collar won’t. And if public opinion is anything to go by, it works.
The stitching on this collar is reflective so that your dog can be seen in dim or low light. It is a regular collar which means that your dog can wear it every day. So basically, you don’t need to switch collars to walk your dog at night. This should suffice.
To ensure that the reflective quality of the collar remains high, consider washing it when it gets dirty. This is especially expedient if your dog is known for running around in the dirt and rolling in the mud. It is made of nylon and while it might take some time to dry (because it is double layered), water is not going to destroy it.
Now aside being reflective, the Max And Neo Reflective Collar comes in a number of colors. And, of course, the color of reflective stitching used on the color is dependent on the color of the collar itself. The idea is to use a thread color that will be reflective enough against the background color.
There are four collar color options available; black, blue, pink and red.
The Max And Neo Reflective Collar uses a metal buckle. All the adjustment you’ll need to do will be done using the buckle and this is why this collar does not feature a tri glide.
All the collar holes (5 of them) have metal eyelets that surround them. The metal eyelets have been anodized to give them a nice finish and also give them the anti-rust quality.
Now, just like the metal eyelets, the buckle itself is made of metal and anodized. So we can conclude that it will not rust even when it comes in contact with water.
3. D Ring And ID Tag
Unlike most other collars, the D Ring on the Max And Neo Reflective Collar has a good number of functions. For one, it acts as the strap loop.
However, there is just one of this. So if the excess strap is in “excess” you could actually end up with a strap that flaps about in the breeze.
The D Ring also does its original job which is to hold the leash. It is sewn right into the collar so that pulling on it will not rip it off.
Now just like other metals on this collar, the D Ring is made of metal and anodized and you can draw your conclusion from that.
Close to the maker logo, you will see a small plastic ring that can be used to hang an ID tag or basically any small accessory.
Is The Max And Neo Reflective Collar User Friendly?
The Max And Neo Reflective Collar is a regular collar so operating it shouldn’t be a hassle. The buckle (which is the only thing that needs “operating”) is a regular metal buckle which all of us should have had to deal with at some point.
Pros Of The Max And Neo Reflective Collar
The Max And Neo Reflective Collar is pretty durable. The nylon used is strong and shouldn’t be easy for your dog to break out of. So it’s like double durable seeing as the collar is made of two layers of nylon.
The metal ware on this collar is also made to last in that all of them have been anodized to prevent them from succumbing to rust.
This collar is stitched with reflective threads. So your dog can be properly seen at night or in dim light. You do not need to change collars just because you want to walk your dog at night.
The Max And Neo Reflective Collar provides you with options. It has a decent range of size options and 4 color options. So you can not only choose the right size, you can also choose the right color.
We really had to add this. For every unit you buy, a dog rescue gets an exact collar. That is definitely a pro.
Cons Of The Max And Neo Reflective Collar
We already said that the Max And Neo Reflective Collar has just one strap loop. So if the excess loop is really in excess, you’ll have collar strap flapping about in the breeze.
