Our secrets to a long, happy product life.
Our planet is a unique playground where dogs and dog owners can enjoy nearly endless adventures. Hurtta products are designed and built to withstand heavy, repeated use. Technical, breathable materials work best when they are clean. If you keep your dog's favorite apparel and gear in good condition, it will perform better and last longer.
Always wash apparel according to the washing instructions. Before putting it in the washing machine, shake off or remove loose hairs and loosen any drawstrings. Close buckles and zippers to prevent damage to other products.
Wash apparel without fabric softener, as fabric softener impairs the breathability of film-coated fabric. The use of a wash bag further protects the garment from unnecessary wear and abrasion.
The heat from a dryer may damage the film surface or tapes on the product, so always drip-dry Hurtta products on a clothesline or hanger. This also benefits the environment thanks to lower energy consumption.
Foil and film-coated products
The heat-reflecting foil print used in some Hurtta products will perform better and last longer when products are washed by hand or in a mesh garment washing bag using the washing machine's gentle-care setting. Never wash foil and film-coated products inside out to better preserve the coating's functional ability.
Collars, harnesses and leashes
Hurtta collars, harnesses and leashes may be washed by hand with a mild detergent. We do not recommend machine washing as any metal components can damage the washing machine.
Hurtta boots may be washed by hand with a mild detergent. Alternatively, you may wash the boots in a mesh garment washing bag using the washing machine's gentle-care setting. Secure the Velcro strips carefully before washing. Wash the slippers right-side out to minimize damage to the glued sole. Allow the boots to drip-dry.
