Here I had it all planned out. I would take Link for a walk in the woods where it typically gets really muddy, knowing he would be a mess for the photos. That is what I wanted so that I could show you just how well Red Dingo Leashes and Collars clean off.
Disclosure: This is a sponsored collaboration between Fashion Beyond Forty and Chewy.com. I only write about products I have personally tested and like. All opinions are my own.
Good ol’ Kansas weather, however, was not in the mood to participate!
Instead of the rain which was predicted we had sunshine.
Not that I mind sunshine, in fact, I have been dreaming about it, but I really needed that rain.
No worries, we can create our own mud and Link, well he gets a day off from modeling for the blog.
I think he has had plenty of face time lately as is.
Here in Kansas, the weather can do that.
Going from sunny to dreary in minutes.
We are in fact, dead center of tornado alley and get a lot of storms.
Red Dingo collars and leashes are just that!
Easy to clean simply by wiping, or rising them off.
Red Dingo products are made from durable PVC coated webbing that can withstand all types of weather conditions and as of now have been Kansas tested and approved, by me!
When I received the collar and leash I saw the nice texturing on them and worried that dirt and mud would settle into the crevices.
I made sure to get plenty of mud all over them.
I expected that there would be residual dirt that I could not get out of those crevices.
Intentionally, I rubbed down hard on the collar and leash getting the mud really ground in!
I really wanted to be sure that if mud were going to get stuck in and stain I would know it.
Side Note: As I was taking the photos and playing in the mud, I did notice the sky becoming overcast.
Then I just dipped the leash and collar into some water…
I did not even have to scrub the mud off.
Granted it had not dried on but the clean up was so simple.
No stains, no mud stuck in the crevices of the textured material.
Side Side Note: And then the sun started coming back out.
This makes Red Dingo the perfect choice for pet parents of adventurous pups!
Not only does it repel dirt and mud but unlike fabric, collars won’t retain unpleasant odor after a long day of play.
I also appreciate that the chrome plated hardware will not rust or discolor pet fur.
Now I want to tell you a secret…
When I saw the Red Dingo leash and collar on Chewy.com it looked great but when I received them in person I was really impressed.
No offense to Chewy but on the website, you can’t really see the texture and quality.
At least not as you can in person.
I expected the feel of the products to be rather like plastic or rubbery.
They are not like that at all!
In fact, they feel like a really flexible leather or pleater if you will.
Oh and that sun playing hide and seek with me.
Just as I was finishing picking up to go back inside, one single raindrop feel directly on the tip of my nose!
I am quite pleased with the Red Dingo products!
The collar runs from sizes XXS to XXL.
You can get the leash in 1/2in, 5/8in, 4/5in and 1 in widths, all in a 4ft length.
Both the leash and collar are available in Hot Pink, Orange, Blue, Purple, and Lime.
Grab yours today at Chewy.com and be ready for any weather and let your dogs get dirty!
