What is Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs?
The Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs is a long-lasting (up to 6 months) flea and tick collar for dogs.

How it Works:
Once the Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs is placed on your dog, its active ingredient called deltamethrin, is released into the natural oils of your dog's skin by friction. Everytime your dog moves, a small amount of the active ingredient releases from the surface of the band and into the skin. It kills 98% of ticks within 24 hours of application and will kill existing fleas on your dog and the ones present in his or her environment that may appear on your dog. To get the complete full-body protection for the Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs, your dog must wear it for 1 to 2 weeks. If you anticipate flea and tick exposure, it's best to apply the Scalibor Protector Band 10-14 days beforehand.
Do not open protective pouch until ready to use. Do not let children play with the Scalibor Protector Band for Dogs. Do not use on puppies under 12 weeks. Consult a veterinarian before using this product on debilitated, aged, pregnant, medicated or nursing animals.

Doesn't Work At All
We give our dog monthly flea treatments and she never had fleas, until we switched to this collar. Within one month of putting the collar on her she had fleas. I will never use this product again and we switched back to the regular monthly treatment.

It works fine for my dog, a mixed Border Collie/Australian Shepherd in Southern Califonia weather. It does not smell.

easy to use
I was having issues with topical drops - my dog is large & fleas kept finding hiding spots away from her back/shoulders & tail. Within 24 hours of putting the collar on her, she was flea-free. I worried about discomfort or skin irritation & a week later she shows no signs of issues. I was reserved about flea collars but am no more.

I bought two 2 months ago and the results were zero. Neither of my dogs responded to the treatment. I am extremely disappointed and will never use this product again. The fleas were not affected at all.

Works great, but...
I have been using these collars on my young pointer-mix & 7-year-old beagle mix for a year. I live in a heavily wooded area & take the dogs hiking up a mountain across from us regularly. The area is filled with deer ticks, Brown dog ticks & Lone Star ticks (the yard, surrounding woods, and wooded mountain). The dogs have rarely gotten a tick on them and when one of them did it was dead & easily removed. They have never had fleas. Also, the collar often gets wet. It has worked well the entire 6 mos.
That said, it does not have a protective outer layer and this poses a problem. The dogs wrestle together whenever they play & often grab each other on the neck (not hard, they really are playing!), so they are ingesting the medicine, which isn't good. Additionally, any one who pets them around the neck gets the medicine on them too, so hand washing is needed all the time. My vet suggested sewing loops inside their regular collars & slipping this through them. The regular collar acts as a cover. It's worked pretty well, but I suspect they still ingest some when playing. You have to be handy with a needle & thread & have the time to do this, which I do.
Overall, the collars have been very effective & have not caused any irritation. Just be mindful of the exposure humans and other playmates will have to the ingredients.

The best I've come across
i have used this product at the recommendation of my vet. Over three years this has worked better than any other product. We live near a wooded area and my Golden Retriever gets into everything you can imagine. Since using this product I have never had to worry about ticks and fleas. And, it certainly beats the greasy applications of other products. I would't think of using anything else.

I bought this collar for my great Pyrenees as the liquid forms of flea and tick medication make her hair very greasy, this collar has not worked well at all for her, she is constantly scratching and biting. I am going to try K9 Advantix II and hope to have better results this time.

Works very well in Excessive tick country
We put one of these on our 51 lb. Husky 4 years ago because she had awful reactions to all of the direct application products. We've never looked back! Not 1 tick...ever. We live in the woods with an extremely high concentration of Lyme disease carrying ticks. Our dog is out every day and we check every night for ticks. Not a one! Humans finding ticks on themselves, yes, our Scalibor wearing dog, no. Love this product!
