Dog Collars

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.

Flat Collar

Consideration: Width  

  • Wide is better

Consideration: (coat of dog)

  • Soft

  • Padded


Earth Dog collars are a long-time favorite. They are made with hemp so they do not hold odor like other collars. Hemp is also a soft but strong fabric and comfortable for dogs.

Martingale Collar

Martingale all fabric. Choose smallest neck size if choice - smaller martingale loop –

Caninus collars are my favorite training collar for medium, large, and giant dogs. They come in wider widths and the collars are very soft and comfortable for dogs. I use the 1 1/2" width for medium and large dogs, and the 2" width for some large and giant dogs.

Padded options –

  • Size with padding compression in mind
  • NO BUCKLES
  • Resize to get on and off / You are putting it on too tight!
