a lovely collection of festive collars, cards and other hound goodies...
The Martingale collar is a special type of collar with an extra piece that is designed to tighten gently when the dog pulls and then loosen again. Preferred by many sighthound owners as it will not to slip over small heads like the conventional collar can.(see diagram)
The Martingale collar is now recommended by many dog trainers as an aid to help pulling and can be worn by many different breeds of dog.
My collars are made using an industrial sewing machine and threads, the strongest high quality polypropylene webbing and embroidered jacquard ribbons or fabrics and strong welded hardware in nickel or cast brass.
My Martingale collars come in 2" 1 1/2" or 1" deep and will adjust to fit most neck sizes *please check your dogs head width as the martingale style of collar is not designed to open up completely but slips over the head and tightens to fit.
How to measure correctly
To measure your dog for a Martingale Collar, use a soft tape measure or a piece of string and take the measurements at point A, B, and C in the drawing below. Choose the size that fits within this range to ensure that your collar fits perfectly.
For Sight hounds, the measurement at points A and B may be the same or very similar, this is because their heads are often the same size or smaller than their necks. For non-sight hounds, these measurements will be different and you will need to choose a collar size that is large enough to slip over the head (point A).
