Muffin’s Halo has designed a life-enhancing product that enables visually-impaired dogs to move through and interact with their environment with confidence, safety and ease. Home to the most recommended navigational halo on the market, Muffin’s Halo creates solutions exclusively for blind dogs, diligently working to ensure they continue to live exceptional lives.
Muffin's Halo is the sturdiest, most trusted blind dog halo on the market. It works to safeguard a dog’s head, nose, face and shoulders from bumping into hard surfaces. It’s lightweight and comfortable enough for all day wear as well as being easy to adjust for the perfect fit. The product is recommended by veterinarians and animal ophthalmologists worldwide and does not hinder a dog’s daily activities. In fact, it has the benefit of increasing a canine’s ability to move, play, eat and sleep with confidence.
Designed for ease-of-use, the Halo’s harness wraps around the front and underside of a dog and is secured with adjustable velcro straps. Similarly, the wings and halo are simple to attach and detach with velcro along the top of the harness, adding an additional safety measure. The product was designed to withstand the daily wear and tear from any adventurous dog.
The halo comes in nine sizes and six colors, and the wings and harness are made of polyester cotton/twill fabric. The halo, itself, is made from durable, water-resistant vinyl tubing - it does not scratch furniture. For the wings and harness, cold water delicate machine wash cycle can be used - or it’s safe to hand wash lay flat to dry. The halo can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
Though different for each dog, most quickly adapt to the halo and become excited about using it. The sooner they bump into something, the quicker they realize it's a helpful aid. To help them adjust, pet parents can toss treats into the corner of a room or next to a couch, so that as the pet retrieves the treats, they bump into the wall or couch and get redirected by the Halo.
Founder, Silvie Bordeaux designed and developed the first blind dog halo inspired by her beloved toy poodle named Muffin. Today, the mission of Muffin’s Halo continues on with the belief that every blind dog deserves the same love and care to live their life with less fear and more fun.
