Dog Collars - Martingale
Our Martingale dog collars are designed and handmade in Bristol, England using genuine 100% cotton Liberty print fabrics, satin lined with solid brass fittings.
The Martingale collar will fit to the exact size of the neck when the collar is pulled closed. When it is properly fitted, the collar will be comfortably loose when not in use. The Martingale collar is ideal for dog walking, particularly for added control with dogs that pull. Martingale dog collars can also be known as Greyhound collars or Sighthound collars. They are ideal for breeds of dogs such as Whippets and Greyhounds where the head is relatively smaller compared to the width of the neck, meaning that they could slip or back out of a standard dog collar.
Our Martingale dog collars are easy to clean and can be hand-washed in a mild detergent and left to dry naturally.
How does a Martingale Collar Work?
These collars have two loops. The smaller of the loops is called the ‘control loop’, this is the part that attaches to the lead and tightens when pulled. The second loop is the adjustment loop. This is the part that can be adjusted to the right size to fit your dog. When fitted properly, the collar should pull close together but the two D rings should never touch.
Size and Fit
|Martingale Collar Size||Your Dog's Neck Measurement|
|14 - 20 inches|
(35 - 51cm approx.)
|Large (4cm wide)||18 - 24 inches|
(46 - 61cm approx.)
To decide on the Martingale collar size that your dog requires, take two measurements. One around the neck where the collar will sit and the other from the top of the head to under the chin. Use the largest measurement to determine the collar size that is suitable for your dog. If your dog is between sizes then it is best to go up a size. Make sure that you always allow a few inches for adjustment.
The medium and large martingale collars fit most Labradors, Dalmatians, Collies, Setters, German Shepherds and other medium to large dogs.
