Adjustable martingale collar gives you more control than a buckle collar, yet is safer than a choke collar
Martingale-style collar tightens to give greater control and reduce dog backing out
Nylon collar has limited closure and center D-ring for safety
Control your dog without causing coughing, hacking, or choking. This martingale-style dog collar also won't catch in your dog's fur. Nylon Martingale collar is formed with two loops attached with metal hardware. The larger loop is placed around the dog's neck, while the smaller loop, with a center D-ring, attaches to the lead. The collar tightens when your dog pulls, but because of the metal rectangle attachments, it offers limited closure. By contrast, a choke chain may tighten enough to cause your dog to cough and gag and may even damage the dog's neck. PetSafe Adjustable Martingale collars have an added quick-release snap buckle for easier on and off.
Martingale collars were originally designed for Greyhounds and other dogs whose heads are more narrow than their necks so they often slipped out of regular buckle collars. Use it on walks with a lead, the martingale collar tightens when your dog pulls and loosens when he stops, so it's only tight when it needs to be. It's also easy to quickly grab with your hand to keep your dog from getting into mischief. Recommended by breeders and trainers, these collars also reduce the risk of your dog slipping out and escaping.
Take measurement at the top of the neck, directly behind the ears. This corresponds with the size of the collar in the closed position, so it is not necessary to "add inches." For example, if your adult dog measure 14" directly behind the ears, choose a medium collar.
Place around dog's head and snap buckle.
Adjust fit by pushing nylon through the metal slide.
When tightened with leash or by grasping the smaller loop like a handle, the two metal rings should touch directly behind your dog's ears.
Attach tags to rectangle rings, not D-Ring.
Hand wash collar when soiled, or spot clean with a pet-formulated stain/spot remover such as CleanAway (#22032) Simply spritz CleanAway on the collar, and allow its enzymes and "good" bacteria to digest the stain and odor until it is gone permanently.
Introducing your dog or puppy to a collar and lead
Taking the time to properly introduce your adult dog or puppy to the collar and lead sets the stage for teaching the basic elements of obedience. The goal is for him to accept a collar and lead calmly, without resistance. Collars should be introduced right away. Don't be concerned if he initially scratches at it or shakes his head. Though he may resist wearing a collar, soon he won't even notice it's on.
Field training aids include collars with up-to-date identification, leads, and check cords. Brightly colored collars help you locate and distinguish between more than one hunting dog while in the field.
