What Is Biothane?
Biothane is a durable and waterproof material made here in the USA of a specially coated polyester webbing that is 100% non-toxic. It is extremely strong and lightweight and is used for most K9 dogs.
This material is known to be a great alternative to leather and is considered one of the best types of dog collars in the world.
Is Biothane Safe For Dogs?
Biothane is 100% tested to be non-toxic to dogs. The materials used are polyester webbing, polyvinyl, and polyurethane.
These materials do not cause any issues for dogs and are actually considered safer than nylon dog collars due to the fact that nylon collars can collect fur, and dirt and be harsh on dogs with sensitive skin.
Since the collar can be easily wiped and doesn’t get slimy or stinky over time, there are rarely any infections.
As seen on the official website of Biothane, they follow strict regulatory guidelines from REACH, CPSIA 2008, and PROP 65 as seen here: Biothane Regulatory Overview.
How Do I Clean My Biothane Dog Collar?
Cleaning your Biothane Dog Collar is very simple and quick! Unlike regular collars that may get smelly and dirty easily over time. The Biothane dog collar just needs a quick wipe with a wet rag. There is no need to use any form of soap or cleansing agent and your biothane collar will be just as clean as you first got it!

How Do I Check If My Biothane Dog Collar Is Genuine?
Genuine biothane dog collars have a noticeable difference in texture compared to a PVC collar or a lead collar. Genuine biothane dog collars are softer and more flexible with a noticeable difference in quality. Keep in mind that there are manufacturers using rubber and marketing it as biothane.
Biothane is more durable, washable, and comfortable for your dog, as opposed to rubber which is none of the above. Make sure to double-check the products you buy!
