EM Ceramic Anti-Tick Collar acts a natural tick-repellant for your dog. Designed to be worn around your dog’s neck like a necklace, to give close contact to their coat and skin, the beads are activated as your dog moves.
Each collar is hand-made by Anna, who specialises in creating accessories for humans and dogs from paracord.
You must choose from 2 options:
- Standard Collar – EM Ceramic Anti-Tick Collar in varying colours and standard sizes. Closing fixture that allows small adjustments to the length of the collar – you must select the appropriate size from the dropdown menu. If your size is not available you must choose bespoke.
- Bespoke Collar – Bespoke, made to measure EM Ceramic Anti-Tick Collar. You choose the colour and size. Fixed closing fixture. These collars are not adjustable, if you are unsure of the exact neck measurement of your dog we strongly advise you to choose 'Standard Collar'.
Measure your dog’s neck (detailed instructions below) and then allow a few more centimetres, so that the necklace sits below your dog’s collar. This allows the EM Ceramic Anti-Tick Collar to move freely and the EM ceramic beads to do their work.
An EM™ Tick Collar should not have any side effects commonly associated with chemical treatments. This should make it safer for dogs with allergies and sensitivities. However, there is no 100% guarantee EM collars nor any other tick product will keep ticks off you or your pets. The best prevention is to avoid known tick areas, and to check your dog AND yourself for ticks after every nature walk.
EM ceramics are safe for children and other pets to be around (but they are not toys nor food!).
- YOU WILL GET THE BEST RESULTS WHEN YOUR DOG WEARS THE COLLAR ALL THE TIME. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO KEEP THE EM™ COLLAR ON AT ALL TIMES DURING THE TICK SEASON.(IT CAN TAKE UP TO 4 WEEKS UNTIL THE EM’S START TO DO THEIR JOB)
- RINSE THE COLLAR THOROUGHLY UNDER WARM TAP WATER AND LET IT DRY IN THE SUN ABOUT EVERY SECOND WEEK. (DON'T USE SOAP OR OTHER CHEMICALS!) IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE BEADS CLEAN! YOU CAN ALSO USE A LITTLE NAIL BRUSH, IF YOU WANT TO.
- IF YOU ARE USING ESSENTIAL OILS OR A BUG SPRAY IN ADDITION TO THE EM COLLAR, MAKE SURE THE EM CERAMIC BEADS STAY OIL/FAT FREE!!!
- SWIMMING WITH THE EM™COLLAR IS NO PROBLEM; JUST LET IT DRY IN THE SUN AFTERWARDS. (ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT TO BE USED IN POOL WATER WITH BLEACH OR OTHER CHEMICALS IN IT! )
- IT IS RECOMMENDED TO RENEW THE EM™ COLLAR EVERY YEAR.
- AN EM™ COLLAR IS ONLY AN ADDITION TO YOUR MAIN COLLAR! PLEASE DO NOT ATTACH A LEASH TO IT!
- FOR YOUR DOGS SAFETY: PLEASE TAKE THE EM™COLLAR OFF, WHEN YOUR DOG IS PLAYING ROUGHER THAN 'NORMAL' WITH OTHER DOGS. IT IS NO PROBLEM TO TAKE THE COLLAR OFF FOR A LITTLE BIT DURING THE DAY.
