The key ingredients in these effective collars are Peppermint, Virginia Cedarwood and Almond Oil. The preventative power of these gentle oils are non-offensive to your dog, but repulsive to fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and other biting insects.
Worry free – No phthalates, DEET, synthetic chemicals, insecticides, or pesticides and is safe for people, cats, dogs, and the environment.
The collars are waterproof and do not need to be removed before entering the water.

I purchased 8 collars to use between my and my mom’s dogs. I did have problems with several of the buckles but jury rigged them to work. Collars lost scent within 2 weeks. One dog had anxiety and breathing issues so couldn’t use on her. I have experience with mixing essential oils and made my own cedarwood mix spritz helps repel knats and mosquitos. You really have to be diligent with Dr’s program and use it’s many components. Was so hoping the collars would work better than they did tho. Unfortunately I didn’t have any luck with just the collars. I realize they are just one part of the preventive program.

There are so many companies now that use harsh chemicals in their products. As a pet owner to a dog that has seizures, I try to eliminate any harsh ingredients in my pet’s life. I love that the company supports using natural ingredients to make their products!!
I had an issue with 2 of the items in my order and the company went above and beyond to correct the issue. They gave me a refund AND replaced the products. Thank you Earth Animal!! I would order again.
I have used these tick colors for 2 years now.

After we had moved to northern woodsy NJ on a lake-in just 2 weeks my Weimaraner got bite by a deer tick. It did fall off bc we Do treat with Frontline so the tick fell off looking like it was having seizures. All my life in Ohio we had never gotten ticks EVER using just Frontline. There were tons of dogs taking walks in our areas & a neighbor told me you need to use 2-3 sources here for ticks- internal and external. He recommended this collar he used on his Labradoodle. We loved it. It smells minty, not yucky, I feel safer with it on with kids touching my dog. Its not a big deal to clip off the excess length. We utilize it camping. I’m so sad my dog did get Lymes Disease just from a quick tick bite! He gets flare ups and is miserable. This year is suppose to be awful for ticks! So I spread the word. Im interested in the need & usefulness of the internal powders you sell. Hmmmm thanks!

What happened to belt buckle collar closures!?!? I ordered a couple of these collars because I was sick of getting poor quality collars from big distributors like Amazon. I thought that by ordering direct from a small, American business, I’d get a higher quality product. I was super bummed when I opened the box to find the same collar that I thought I was upgrading from (are these really made in the USA?) It’s a cheap strip of plastic that is molded to have a tapered male end and a female end that the male end should fit into. The male end barely fits into the female end and your dog must sit patiently while you fight to get the collar together while around his/her neck. And then when you cut the extra collar down to fit your dog’s neck (and there’s a lot of extra), you have to cut the male end off. Without the tapered male end, if you take the collar off, it doesn’t fit back together again. So, you have to keep the collar on 24/7 until it’s ready to replace or leave 4-6” of collar just sticking out the side of your dog’s neck.

I bought these collars for my 3 Shar pei and they seem to be keeping those critters away. I had always used Frontline and Advantage but I never felt comfortable with all the chemicals, I prefer using these natural and safe collars. Thank you for offering such great products for our “kids”
I have used the internal powder for my dogs for several years, but used in conjunction with a commercial flea/tick topical application. I have been so happy with the internal powder that when the collars came out decided to completely move away from commercial type products. My dogs take the power, the drops and wear the collars and they have been great. I would have given a perfect rating, but we have had issue with the collars not staying clasped, so I am having to check them daily.
So far so great!! According to a May 2018 CDC report, we live in the 2nd worst tick area in the country… it is impossible not to find one or two with each walk. We have tried EVERYTHING, natural and chemical — from perimeter sprays to drops to collars to vaccines to shirts to pills to powders to shampoos. We also only walk our dogs in short mowed grass and we are vigilant in checking them. We have purchased/used every product recommended and/or sold by vets. After one of our beloved dogs suffered totally debilitating seizures and had to be put to sleep soon after trying a new spot-on product only available through vets, we said ENOUGH. We are trying the Earth Animal collar on 2 of our 4 dogs because they walk off leash and one, in particular, is like Belgian Chocolate to ticks and has already had Lyme disease as a result. Since using this collar (April 2018) we have only found one tick. We realize it is a very short trial, but its nearly impossible to find such amazing results in the height of what is being called the worst tick season ever… We have not used the internal powder, but will certainly add it to the regimen for extra added protection. We are more than happy to update our review as more time passes and there is more to report. Important to note, the smell of the collar, when first put on, is very strong, especially since I do not like the smell of mint. However, the dogs don’t mind it at all and I have gotten used to it. In fact, the scent now gives me assurance that my dogs are safe, so I have come to welcome it. Wonder if I can make a bracelet to wear during deep wood hikes that would protect me as well? BTW – our dogs absolutely LOVE the no-hide dog chews!!

I purchased this collar from a local boutique dog store in hopes for a holistic and natural alternative to flea and tick protection for my dog. I currently use a natural flea & tick shampoo that includes the cedar-wood oil but not the peppermint oil and still I thought it should not be an issue. The smell of the collar is very strong when it is first opened and takes over a week to subside. I put the collar on my dog who is small/ medium about 29 lbs and she seemed fine at first. I have been watching her closely and her breathing has been short and heavy since I put the collar on her. After over a week my husband and I believed it was the collar that had been affecting her and decided to cut it off. As soon as we did she stopped the short heavy breathes and was excited to play again. I am not sure what ingredient caused this but if you use this product pay close attention to your pets response.

I didn’t want to use chemicals on my two dogs, so I bought two of the Herbal Flea and Tick Defense Collars for both. They’ve been wearing the collars for 7 weeks now and between the both of them have had at least 10 ticks attached to them. My dogs are primarily indoor dogs and only go outside to relieve themselves and for walks on our road. This collar has proven to be useless against ticks. I have also been using the Earth Animal Flea and Tick program (Daily Herbal Internal Powder and Herbal Drops) year round for the past few years, and using the Herbal collar seems to have actually attracted more ticks rather than repel them. Don’t waste your money on this collar, as it’s not cheap.
