ROGZ considers itself the coolest pet company in the world. And looking at its ROGZ Utility Reflective Dog Collar, we could say that it is up to something with that statement.
Plus it is not just this product. ROGZ has a range of pet products that cater to the needs of a range of pets. Whatever cool stuff you want to get for your pet, ROGZ probably has it.
In keeping up with its “coolest pet company” fame, ROGZ likes to put a spin on its products and the ROGZ Utility Reflective Dog Collar is not left out.
We’ll get to that spin (and other things you need to know) if you stick with us. But first…

Who Can Wear The ROGZ Utility Reflective Dog Collar?
This collar is for large breeds. Specifically dogs with necks as thick as between 13 and 22 inches.
Features Of The ROGZ Utility Reflective Dog Collar
This is made with pretty tough nylon webbing. This should make the collar strong and resistant to the elements, thereby making it stay around for longer.
Nylon is also a good choice if you are looking for a collar that won’t scratch or chaff.
Now, this collar is also made with reflective stitching that helps the collar glow in the dark.
It might not be an awesome choice if you both go hunting. But if you ever need to walk him in the dark or he gets lost in the dark, you’ll be glad the collar is reflective.
The reflective stitching is guaranteed to last through frequent wears, washing and pulling.
However, if you feel you don’t need the reflective feature, you could turn the collar inside out and use it that way.
2. ROGZ Fort Knox RogLoc
We told you that ROGZ is about being cool, didn’t we? It might amuse you to know that ROGZ Fort Knox RogLoc is just ROGZ’ name for the buckle on this collar.
However, its fun name should give you an idea of how tight the buckle is. The plastic buckle secures the collar around your dog’s neck quite alright. But that isn’t what earns it the name.
The buckle itself has a lock. So when you’re done clasping the buckle, you lock down the collar like Fort Knox and prevent accidental break out.
While this collar is difficult for your dog to break out of, it is pretty easy for you to operate.
3. The Fun Spin
This collar has a special feature that ROGZ calls the Low Load Tech. This is basically a load ring positioned in and around the buckle.
The idea of this load ring is to reduce pressure on the buckle. So as the collar takes all the stretching and pulling that come with wearing a collar, pressure is inadvertently mounted on the buckle.
And this could reduce the life expectancy of the buckle.
The load ring takes a good deal of the pressure on itself, thereby increasing the buckle’s life expectancy and ensuring that the buckle stays fixed.
We think it is vital to mention that the load ring is made of chrome coated metal. This is awesome because chrome makes the ring rust resistant and tarnish free.
4. D Ring
With this collar, the D Ring is stitched on the collar and not soldered. If it was soldered on, it would pull out at the slightest hint of an enthusiastic pull.
However, with the D Ring stitched on or better still, a part of the collar stitched around it, it stands a better chance of remaining on the collar through all the pulling.
Is The Rogz Utility Reflective Dog Collar User Friendly?
We’ll say kinda. In fact, this collar owes its slight complexity to its attempt at being secure.
Remember that the buckle comes with a lock. So when you want to clasp or unclasp you have to go through the process of unlocking before unclasping or locking after clasping.
Now that we think about it, it’s probably not really about complexity. It is probably about the time you’ll have to dedicate to the entire process. But hey! It’s worth keeping your dog safe isn’t it?
Pros Of The ROGZ Utility Reflective Dog Collar
If there is one thing that ROGZ spared no expense in ensuring, it is durability. This collar is made with strong nylon that should help keep the collar strong even as it ages.
The buckle is so secure, ROGZ refers to it as the ROGZ Fort Knox Rogloc.
But to make things even better, ROGZ introduces its famous spin in the form of a load ring. The load ring takes some of the pressure off the buckle. Thereby elongating the life of the buckle.
The D Ring is stitched on the side of the collar to keep it there.
And to top it all up, everything made of metal on this collar is chrome plated which helps keep them from rust and keep them looking healthy.
So yea, durable.
2. High visibility
We also love the fact that this collar is reflective. And just like everything about the collar, the reflective feature is made to last.
Cons Of The ROGZ Utility Reflective Dog Collar
The buckle lock thing that this collar has got going could be time spending. With this collar, you’ll definitely spend more time getting your dog ready than you would with other collars.
