We recommend quick release buckle collars only be used for your dog's ID tag and license and not for attaching a leash. We recommend only attaching a leash to a properly fitted flat or martingale collar without a buckle.
Many skilled and knowledgeable trainers have learned that dogs can be trained quickly without using choke chains, prong collars, or electric collars.
- Collars are to control, not to choke dog!
- If you are starting with a puppy there should be no reason to switch to a “training collar” later.
- If you are advised to use a “training collar” other than a martingale move on and look for a more knowledgeable and skilled trainer.
- Wide is better
Consideration: (coat of dog)
Martingale collars are the training collar that I use for untrained or reactive dogs. Martingale collars are great collars for securely controlling your dog. (Not choking them) I only use all fabric collars without chains or buckles that can break. When fitted properly it prevents the dog from backing out of the collar. For most dogs a proper fit is when the leash is tightened and the two metal rings touch and not constrict on the dogs neck. It should be fitted just tight enough that the dog cannot back out of it. Once the collar is fitted correctly it should slip over the head easily without the need to loosen. Martingales collars should not be left on unsupervised dogs
Martingale all fabric. Choose smallest neck size if choice - smaller martingale loop –
Padded options –
- Size with padding compression in mind
- NO BUCKLES
- Resize to get on and off / You are putting it on too tight!
