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.

That is why we need collars and leashes that are easy to clean without having to stick them in the washer and dryer.

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!

    Wow, this leash does clean up so nicely! That’s too funny that you had to create your own mud. But hey, it worked! I like the blue color and would go with size small for the collar.

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:06 pm

      LOL right and guess what…
      the next two days after I did these photos …
      IT RAINED!
      A LOT
      I considered doing a new shoot but had too many other things to get done.
      The blue is such a nice color – and it matches my blog haha!

    This is definitely a great collar and leash for dog owners to have. My niece’s dog is always getting his collar dirty, and this would be purrfect for him. Great photos!

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:07 pm

      Ohhhh sounds like your niece’s dog needs this! I am truly impressed with the quality and how easily they clean up.

  3. March 21, 2018 / 3:47 pm

    My gosh, when you decided to test that leash out, YOU REALLY TESTED THAT LEASH OUT. All that mud… And it came off super easily? Wow. Now THAT is a mud-proof product, for sure. PURRS

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:09 pm

      Haha yes indeed!
      I wanted to know for sure it was going to clean up well.
      It sure did!
      I was surprised!
      I expected to have to rub more of it off but 90% or more just slid right off on it’s own.
      I know a few cats who could benefit from this too Seville.

  4. March 21, 2018 / 3:52 pm

    LOL. I live in IL so definitely understand the changing from sunny to rain in two seconds thing! I chuckled at your photos – you really put the leash and collar to the test with the mud! Glad they work so well and surpassed your expectations!

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:10 pm

      Ahhh you get it then!
      Yes midwest weather is just so crazy!
      Haha indeed I did.
      I had to be sure it worked the way it was supposed to and boy did it!

  5. March 21, 2018 / 5:14 pm

    What a cool product! I was wondering at first if they felt like plastic or rubber too. I love the color you got, my younger dog’s “signature color” is blue haha. I saw that they have other colors on Chewy.com too, which is awesome.

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:11 pm

      Yeah exactly and even my own photos did not show the detail off very well.
      I think I got my camera lens wet because my photos seem a tiny bit blurry.
      Anyway they are really nice quality and I love them.
      They do come in pretty colors and I agree the blue is a nice one!
      It’s cool our dogs both have the same signature color.
      I love that this particular blue really matched my blog haha.

  6. March 21, 2018 / 5:22 pm

    Wow! That is impressive! Given my dog’s penchant for mud I should get these!

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:12 pm

      Haha indeed Carleen! I was very impressed with the Red Dingo leash and collar by far.

  7. March 21, 2018 / 6:10 pm

    My dirty Cocker I do declare needs Red Dingo collar and leash. He is primarily white and loves mud and dirt, so you can imagine this dog mom’s dilemma. hahahaha.

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:14 pm

      Ahhhhh indeed Dirty Cockers do need Red Dingo! I was really surprised – the brand surpassed my expectations.

  8. March 21, 2018 / 7:08 pm

    Wow! Those are impressive collars and leashes. Ours get noticeably dirty. 🙁

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:16 pm

      Thank you so much and yes I was honestly truly impressed. I did not expect them to be so nice.

  9. March 21, 2018 / 7:11 pm

    Wow, that is one durable leash and collar set. Not only will mud wash off it but all the nasty smelly stuff my dogs always loved to roll in!! Plus they always went swimming or rolled in the snow and their collars would get wet and smelly. Too bad I didn’t know about these then. Will definitely keep these in mind for when I have a dog in my life again.

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:17 pm

      They really are and I am far more impressed than I expected to be!
      Right – collars especially can smell gross after even a few days out in the heat and water.
      Thank you for keeping them in mind for when you have a pup again 🙂

  10. March 21, 2018 / 7:53 pm

    Nice product! I love anything that makes cleaning easy and simple. I don’t have a dog however am sharing this post. A lucky participant is going to be one happy camper with an easy to clean leash.

    • March 21, 2018 / 8:18 pm

      Easy and simple is awesome when it comes to cleaning ANYTHING!
      Thank you so much for sharing this post with your friends who have pets I really appreciate that!

  11. March 21, 2018 / 9:11 pm

    I love that you made your own mud! It looks like they cleaned up really well.

    • March 22, 2018 / 11:25 pm

      haha thanks Beth! I will admit, I do sort of enjoy playing in the mud haha.

  12. March 22, 2018 / 5:38 am

    I know a few dogs that need this! LOL Monte is on the other hand an absolute little aristocrat … never had a dog that walked AROUND mud and puddles before! Hehehehe…

    • March 22, 2018 / 11:26 pm

      That is so cute that he avoids mud and dirt! What a charmer your Monte is!

    I would get the size L collar and the 1 inch leash. I just got a new puppy and he will surely grow into this, he’s growing so fast and i have a feeling he is just going to love the dirt!

    • March 22, 2018 / 11:26 pm

      Ohhh Kelly congrats on your new fur family member! They do grow so fast it’s amazing! Enjoy your fur baby! What did you name him? Good luck in the drawing too!

  14. July 30, 2018 / 10:49 am

    That’s awesome that the dirt does not stick to it. My two wouldn’t think twice if they saw a dirt patch or mud to go play in. The little one Fluffy is the trouble starter. Poor Buffy must just follow her lead or else she yells at him. 🙂

    • August 8, 2018 / 10:02 am

      Haha they sound like such fun! Red Dingo does make some really good quality products and yes I love that they are so easy to clean up!
