OEKO-TEX® IS THE ANSWER!
Our dogs are often seen as family members, and their health, safety and wellbeing is of the utmost importance to us.
For this reason, it’s essential that manufacturers of dog harnesses use high quality and skin-friendly materials that are guaranteed to be safe for human use! I mean why would we put an accessory on our pooch that wasn't safe for us to use ourselves!
All materials imported into the EU require Reach certification which states that they do not contain any harmful or prohibited ingredients. So it is super important that the straps and linings used on dog harnesses have this certification, to avoid the risk of any potentially damaging components being absorbed into our beloved pooch via contact with the skin. But who can give this certification? That's where OEKO-TEX® comes in!
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a globally standardized, independent testing and certification system for textile raw materials, intermediate and end products of all processing stages and accessory materials used.
The strict tests for harmful substances and measures of this standard include:
And what does all of this mean? The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification offers reassurance that the materials used in the manufacturing of the Julius-K9® dog harnesses are completely safe for you and your hounds. And that's a big thumbs up in our book!
SUCH A SWEET DEAL BUT WHAT EXACTLY IS THE IDC® STEALTH POWERHARNESS?
In short, it's a professional harness for all working dogs, police dogs and security dogs. It was actually exclusively developed for U.S. law enforcement! Of course it's not limited to the professionals, our large pet pooches love it too, need we say more! Yes? Read on to find out the details or send one straight to your shopping cart here!
INTRODUCING THE COLOR & GRAY® FAMILY!
Let's be honest, we all love matching products regardless of whether they're our socks, stationery, rugby team uniforms or even wine with meals! Why? It makes the selection of products effortless for us, and appeases the OCD tendencies in those of us who have them.
And with that in mind, we now have renamed our IDC® Super-Grip leads and IDC® collars and put them in an all new family called the COLOR & GRAY® collection. By doing this you now have the ease of buying your pooch's collar and lead in their favourite colour from the one family. Genius right?!
That's not all that's great about this collection, while the name has changed, the great products are still the same! But what exactly makes these products so great, and stand out from the many other leads and collars available in the market? The materials, that's what!
The COLOR & GRAY® collars and leads may harmonise like a symphony orchestra in appearance, they are actually made from two different materials.
Let's start with the leash, it is a synthetic material with rubber threads woven into it. This makes for a durable fabric pleasant to the touch, with the rubber threads woven into its surface ensuring the optimum grip for leading your dog. While the collar looks the same, the thin rubber threads are replaced with polyester in the collar. This means that the awesome grip that the lead has, won't be doing it's thing with the collar on the fur of your pooch. When we say that Julius-K9® gear has been designed for your dogs comfort, we mean it!
