With the highest standard in the pet industry, the '5 Stars' approval criteria includes: Humane Treatment of pets and people, Business Ethics, References and ongoing feedback, Annual Inspection of Businesses, Facility Safety and Cleanliness.

The nanotechnology is impregnated into the fabric without altering its texture and feel, and produces a non-visible structured textile surface that coat oil, dirt, and liquids cannot stick to. Residue can be rinsed off with water or machine washed. The fabric stands up to frequent washing and is highly abrasion resistant. These pet products also incorporate non-silver-based bacteriostatic, a proprietary technology that inhibits the spread of bacteria that can cause 'doggy' odor.
