All our products are washable by hand or by machine. If machine washing, we suggest they be placed in a fabric bag to help protect the collar or leash from getting banged up inside the washing machine. You may also wash by hand using cool water and a mild detergent. We suggest you air dry your collar or leash by hanging or laying flat on a towel.
Even though our stainless steel or solid brass buckles are very strong and durable, like any metal, they can be subject to corrosion in cases where they are exposed to water and especially salt water and pool chemicals. If your dog loves to swim in the ocean or the pool, proper rinsing and drying of the buckle after exposure to these conditions will help prolong the life of the buckle.
