What is a Martingale Collar?

A martingale collar is a combination of a regular adjustable collar with a section of chain to provide more control over the dog without choking your dog. They were originally designed for Greyhounds and sight hounds because their necks are larger than their heads and they can often slip out of regular adjustable collars.  Our collars have the unique feature of a buckle to make it easy to get on and off your dogs neck, others have to be constantly adjusted.

How do I properly fit a Martingale Collar?

Martingale Dog Collars are fitted to the exact size of the dog's neck when the collar is pulled closed, like a regular collar. Properly fitted, the collar will be comfortable when not in use, but tight when closed. When the Martingale Control loop is pulled, the 2 rings should pull close together, with a 2 finger width measure, but they should never touch.

Why Use a Martingale Collar?

A Martingale Collar is popular when used for training your dog.  It provides a quick snap correction to the dog without harming them or choking them as with a regular choke collar.  We recommend the Martingale Collar only when training your dog, and using our regular adjustable collar when your dog is unsupervised.
