About Non-stop Dogwear

Non-stop Dogwear was founded in Norway only ten years ago, and today you can find their products in over 1,000 stores in 22 countries. We love their passion for designing the best-fitting dog harnesses to “release their potential,” as their slogan says. Their focus is on pulling harnesses and other types of equipment for skijoring, canicross, etc. but they also have a few harnesses more suited for everyday dog walks.

About the Polar Collar

We haven’t posted about the Non-stop Dogwear Polar collar separately, but you have seen us using it while testing many of their other products.⁠ We finally wanted to have a separate review on it after using it for many hikes over the last year.

This is a thicker collar with an enclosed foam padding inside, which doesn’t soak in water. For reference: the material is similar to the straps of the Line or Freemotion harness if you have that. The leash attachment point is a big, stainless steel ring (not a D-ring), which is easy to find even on a longer haired dog.

There are two versions of this collar. The one we tested has to be adjusted with a slider when taking it off or putting it on since it is a static collar. There is another version called “Polar Collar Click” with a Duraflex buckle on it for more comfortable use.

Polar Collar Review

⁠ Before getting it, we weren’t too excited about the black collar because we assumed it wouldn’t be visible on Mia, but the 3M reflective lines make it highly visible even in the dark! While many other collars get lost even in Mia’s medium hair, if they are not brightly colored, this one always stays visible due to the thicker material.⁠ The soft rip-stop outer material is anti-rub and seems to be gentle on the fur.

Due to the thickness of the material, the slider isn’t easy to move - but holds well once adjusted. This collar was developed for active dogs who need to have a durable collar on for a more extended period; it’s not the best option if you want to take it off and put it back often. Not having the buckle makes this collar even more durable since there isn’t a plastic piece that could theoretically break due to extreme cold or pressure.

To summarize, this is a very well made, durable collar that doesn’t look worn and isn’t smelly even after using it for many hikes and swims over the last year. The only thing we wish is that it could be available in the same colors as the Line harness ;)

About Nobo Pets We usually have a short introduction here about the company, but we loved NOBO Pet’s story on their website so much that we felt this is the perfect summary of their mission: “…I quickly realized that in my haste leaving the house, I completely forgot to grab a poop bag. Trying to stop the inevitable, I shouted, “No Bo! NOBO!” but it was too late. I glanced sheepishly over my shoulder to see approaching walkers staring right at me.

About OneTigris OneTigris is a tactical-style outdoor gear store, selling all kinds of products from airsoft gear to affordable military-style dog harnesses. OneTigris Collar 05 Review This adjustable nylon collar is their small dog collar, so it only comes in one size and two colors. The lengths is 9.8"-15" (25 cm-38cm) while the width is 1" (2.5 cm). The best feature of this collar is the loop panel, which allows you to have replaceable patches on it like your dog’s name or “Do Not Pet,” “In Training,” or whatever you need.

About Partnered Paw Behind Partnered Paw, there is Tasha, who started to make collars for her dogs years ago. Her business has grown, and now it’s almost her full-time job. Every collar is hand-made to order, so there is room for customization as well! Partnered Paw Custom Collar and Leash Review We received two 1.5" collars and a leash from Partnered Paw. I especially love these collars because Tasha custom-made them for Mia - we agreed that she would come up with something that best represents her brand and matches Mia well.

About MOD We got these two stunning leash & collar combos from ModLeash for testing! They are a brand new company with an interesting concept: they sell their Starter Sets (the two patterns on the photo) only for $10/each! You get a leash or a collar separately for $5! To make this price even more competitive, they offer free shipping and free returns in the US. With buying one of these sets, you become a MOD member and have access to limited edition designs as well.

About their products in general Bol-Dog is a company that you have to check out if you are looking for a seasonal or holiday-themed leash&collar combos or just in a search for unique patterns. You can pick the type of the collar, the width and the length of the leash, and even order a matching tag, which is a great idea. :) Review As in the case of most of the handmade, designer products, expect the carabiner to be a little lighter and smaller than the ones sold from a hiking gear company.

About their products in general Rayzi’s ParacorDog Design is a company making custom-designed paracord leashes and collars. They let you pick the colors, patterns and will help to make whatever you have in mind happened :) Rayzi’s ParacorDog Set Review The paracord products are durable, colorful, and unique for sure. We love the color combination they picked for Mia. :) One thing to consider before buying a paracord product is that in most cases, you cannot adjust the length of these collars, so be sure to measure your dog’s neck carefully.

The best part is that there is no subscription needed, you only pay for the device, and there are no other recurring fees! This is because it doesn’t need cell coverage, which means there are no geographical restrictions for using it!

What is a Whistle Collar? Whistle currently has three pet trackers, the Whistle Fit - a fitness tracker without GPS, the Whistle Go, and its upgraded version with new features and longer battery life: Whistle Go Explore. We tested the Whistle Go Explore, which is a health and location tracker in one. This means that besides the GPS tracking, they also implemented a few health-related stats that distinguishes them from the other smart collars on the market.

What is a Fi Collar? Fi is probably the best-known pet tech right now on the market. The tracker is connected to an app on your phone, which lets you know your dog’s location even from far away. The Fi tracker is well-designed, elegant and the Armored Aluminium Faceplate has a much more streamlined design than most of its competitors. The tracker was designed for active dogs, so it’s sturdy, and even the tracker unit is waterproof (IP68 Waterproof Rating), dirtproof, and supposedly resistant to bites as well, so you have nothing to worry about on your adventures.
