Reflective waterproof dog collar

My thoughts on the reflective waterproof collar:

My black Lab mix Ace has worn a red waterproof ScruffTag collar from dogIDs for a couple of years, and I knew I would also love the reflective version of the collar for Remy.

The ScruffTag collars are the most durable, practical collars we own. They just doesn’t get dirty and they don’t smell no matter how many times my dogs go swimming or hiking.

The collars are made out of durable BioThane Beta material, according to dogIDs. BioThane is extremely tough and resistant to the elements so it won’t crack in the cold or melt in the heat.

And dogIDs is based out of Fargo, N.D., where I lived for 10 years. Trust me, the folks there know about “the elements”!

The ScruffTag collars come with stainless steel hardware that is 100% corrosion proof, according to dogIDs. I love the engraved nameplates because I prefer not to have jingling tags on my dogs’ collars. Can we say, annoying?

How much does the collar cost?

The reflective waterproof collar is $34 at This includes the personalized, engraved nameplate.

The reflective collars come in blue, green, orange, pink or red and in sizes starting at 1″ by 14″ up to 1″ by 24″. (If you have a small dog, check out the non-reflective version.)

What’s unique about the ScruffTag collar?

The ScruffTag collar line is trademarked by dogIDs, and what makes these collars unique is the built-in nameplate that sits on the “scruff” of your dog’s neck. Since the nameplate is built into the collar it won’t fall off. The personalized plate is also easy to read when standing above and behind the dog, a safer option vs. reaching under the dog’s neck for their information.

Each nameplate can be engraved with up to 4 lines in your choice of 13 fonts. Every dogIDs tag is engraved with a high power fiber commercial engraving to create a clean design that won’t wear off, according to the company.

dogIDs guarantees the engraving will last the lifetime of your pet and if you end up moving or need to update your info it will install a new nameplate for $5 plus shipping.

Pros of the reflective waterproof ScruffTag collar:

  • Not only is it reflective and waterproof but it’s odor resistant!
  • High-quality and durable
  • Doesn’t get dirty, dirt and mud seems to just fall off
  • Weather resistant
  • Embedded nameplate – so no jingling tags!
  • Perfect for dogs that like to swim (no mildew smell on the collar)
  • Good for active dogs, hunting dogs, dogs that visit the beach or dog park, dogs that play in the snow

My dog Remy and I - wearing his reflective waterproof dog collar

Yes! I love this collar. My senior dog Ace has been wearing the non-reflective version for years, and I would definitely buy these for my dogs.

Would I recommend the collar to others?

Yes. Buy one! It’s worth the $34.

Nice collar, i would like to buy it. I have a doggy and I found The BERLIN riveted collar is stunning with its two colored leather. I ordered it from "Timely Design”. Who provides the chemical free and high quality ecofriendly dog products.

I love the fact that the collar is durable, and bright colored. My dogs current collar is getting dull.

I would love to win a collar because my dogs are always in need of a new color because we can't afford to buy the nice expensive ones and it would be great if we could have one of these for our dog Roxie so she can have a nice and sturdy collar.

A brilliant idea for easy looking for my boy in the bark. As I get older it is harder to spot him in the dark so one of these would make it so much easier
