Collar caddy review

week we are testing the collar caddy by pick it up.

It is a collar with 4special compartments allowing dogs to carry their own stuff.

We are testing the large size for dogs 20kg+ with neck 17″+.

image

What is included:
Collar caddy with high quality flat buckle collar.

image

2 x drinks bottles each holding around 1/3 glass of water.suitable for a normal walk but will need refilling or extra bottles if longer walk or warm weather.they have their own compartment in the caddy

image

image

10x disposable drinks trays to be used with the bottle for a drink.they unfold easily and can fit 1-2 in caddy but small enough for your pocket.will last 1walk but designed to be thrown away after

image

20x large good quality poo bags. Folded up ready to pop in caddy.fits 2-4 depending on other stuff being carried. Can also use your own if you fold them.

image

Emergency lead- lightweight nylon.tested on 26kg Labrador pulling towards food and is strong.fits neatly into compartment or in a pocket

Design
The large caddy is brown and gold so will fit in most dogs coloring without standing out too much.

The compartments are in 2 sections with a clip in middle that comes off to help.clean easily.the clip also helps caddy to bend and adjust to most dogs necks.

The caddy is easy to clean and will wash with warm water and dry easily.the collar is also washable.

The collar caddy can also be used with your own flat buckle collar as the collar supplied comes out easily and new collar slides in in 30secs.this allows dogs with a different neck size to the collar supplied can wear the caddy.below is our own collar

The compartments are not fully watertight if going swimming in river or heavy rain. It is recommended to have treats and drink trays in plastic bag.

image

Only small bag of treats can fit in compartment if carrying trays,bags and lead as well.slightly bigger bag or loose treats can fit in if not using both bottles or trays etc.

image

Took us a while to find a good way to fit everything in.we put a drinks tray and lead in one section.and pok bags and treats in the other side.this allows compartments to close properly.

image

An id tag can be attached to collar as normal and can also be written on in permanent marker on outside or a label.stuck inside in case of loss of dog.

I’m not bothered bout it round neck and have fallen asleep wearing it. It is not heavy or bulky and is curved so doesn’t dig in neck if I rest head on it

Pros
-Fits most dogs as can change collar
-Cleans quickly and easily
-Fits a lot of things in
-Not bulky or heavy

Cons
-Small waterbottles-need extra bottles on a bigger walk
-Although fits lots in, doesn’t fit more than 2-3poo bags and trays(some dogs do lots of poos)
-Not watertight in heavy rain or river(I like splashing in river)

Overall mum says she would buy another one and thinks it good quality item.
