This collection is named for my Australian Cattle Dog, Maya, who absolutely loves water! Coincidentally, the name Maya means water which is absolutely fitting for our collection of Waterproof Dog Collars. These collars can get down and dirty without the usual wear and tear. They don't get wet as they are non-porous and will not hold the usual doggy smells. If the collar gets dirty, no worries! Just rinse with soapy water and it will be good as new! This collar is also great for dogs with skin allergies as the Biothane material will not harbor bacteria and can be disinfected with a bleach dilution.
