Muffin’s Halo Is An Innovative Device That Protects Blind Dogs From Bumping Into Walls And Hard Surfaces

This press release passed my desk recently and I just had to share. I met Silvie Bordeaux several years at a pet bloggers conference.  She was so passionate about her invention and I just knew it would be warmly welcomed by the pet world.  And judging by its HUGE success, I wasn't wrong.  Congratulations, Sylvie!


Sherman Oaks, CA (April 2, 2018) - Blindness in dogs is more prevalent than you may think. It can be caused by a number of issues such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal diseases, diabetes and trauma. Dogs that become blind end up  bumping into things over and over eventually causing them to stop moving all together and become severely depressed. Muffin’s Halo addresses this problem by providing dogs with a halo around their head and shoulder area acting as a buffer to alert the dog to a hard surface and redirecting them away from it.

"I created Muffin's Halo for my blind toy poodle, who lost his sight at age eleven," said Silvie Bordeaux, inventor and founder.  "He was having a hard time transitioning, so I was determined to find a solution to help him navigate safely.  My invention resulted in his regaining self-confidence and it is now used by over 20,000 blind dogs worldwide."


Muffin’s Halo has won national acclaim having been featured on NBC and ABC news as well network TV shows The Doctors and Hallmark’s Home & Family as well as People Magazine, Associated Press and the Huffington Post. Additionally it was voted the “Top Ten Pet Inventions” on Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet Show and won “Best Dog Product” at SuperZoo, the international pet trade show held annually in Las Vegas.  Most recently, Muffin's Halo placed as a finalist at the 2018 Global Pet Expo in Orlando as Best Dog Product. Global Pet Expo is the largest international pet trade show in the nation.

Muffin’s Halo is a lightweight, three piece device that is comfortable and easy to fit with adjustable fastening straps that will accommodate all sized blind dogs. Cushiony soft wing sits on the dog’s neck protecting the head and shoulders while absorbing impact when the dog is confronted by a hard surface. This wing support a halo surrounding the head that acts as a buffer to alert the dog of a surface or object and redirects them.



Muffin’s Halo comes in five different styles that honors and celebrates blind dogs.

“The Angel Wing” signifies  protection and guidance. “The Quarterback” is for the star of the team who has his blind side covered. “The Butterfly Wing” symbolizes freedom to fly again. “My Blind Dog” is a hip and unisex style. And the “Blind Soldier” is for the warrior blind dogs who have fought many battles to survive.

“When I saw the huge difference that my invention made in Muffin’s life, I knew that this device could improve the lives of many blind dogs and I was determined to get it on the market to assist them,” added Bordeaux. “What I love most about Muffin’s Halo is that it stimulates blind dogs to explore again and truly enhances their quality of life.”

I have wondered! Thanks mate you have thought a lot about the blind dogs. Only pet lover can think this way. I did not know about the Muffin’s Halo. It is really a wonderful invention that can be really helpful for the blind dogs. Though my dog is not blind, I want to appreciate this post.

This is a very clever device. Our dog is blind, and I havent tried a halo yet. He bumps into things now and again, and he is a senior. Iam going to looking into one soon as his cognitive imparements are becoming worse and he is 'lost' at times.
