Dog Gone Smart collars, leashes, harnesses, pet beds, apparel and horse wear use NanoSphere®** Dog Gone Smart™ technology. This certified nanotechnology is impregnated into the fabric without altering the fabric texture and feel, producing a non-visible structured textile surface that coat oil, dirt, and liquids cannot stick to. Residue can easily be rinsed off with water or machine washed. The fabric stands up to frequent washing and is highly abrasion resistant. It carries the label "bluesign® approved" which is based on the world's strictest EHS (environment, health and safety) stipulations for textiles and examines all the relevant components from the very beginning of the manufacturing process. Pet products are also bacteriostatic, inhibiting the spread of bacteria that can cause odor.
*For complete biodegradability the zipper slider including top and bottom stops must be detached before discarding. **NanoSphere® is registered trademark of Schoeller Technologies AG - Switzerland
