Martingale collars differ from other collars insofar that they slide over the head onto the neck of your dog and then tighten to the appropriate size. The benefit of martingale collars is that it allows you greater control of your dog without the danger of choking or hurting it. Martingale collars are comfortably loose when not being used, and are recommended by many dog trainers as they are gentler and more effective than choke collars. They also make for a great way to control smaller dog breeds that may otherwise slip out of a collar. By pulling on the chain the dog actually creates tension that makes the collar tighter and keeps the dog safely within reach. Gear for Pets has a great selection of comfortable and stylish Martingale collars that allow you to exercise control over your pup without having to worry about injuring it. Many dog owners prefer Martingale collars over standard ones, because it makes gentle correction possible. To ensure that your collar fits your pet perfectly, we offer them in a variety of sizes.
Although Martingale collars were originally designed for dog breeds like Greyhounds and Whippets (meaning those with thin face and neck features) they are suitable for any dog breed. We especially recommend them for dog breed that have a wider neck than face such as Bulldogs, for example. Even though they are exceedingly safe, we still don’t recommend a Martingale to be worn around the clock.
