What Is A Martingale Dog Collar?
What is a martingale collar?
Martingale collars, also known as greyhound collars, are a safe and comfortable way for every dog to wear a collar. If your dog tends to pull on their leash, bolt after squirrels, or is capable of escape from their regular collar by backing out of it, a martingale collar may be the right choice for you and your doggie!
Martingales are necessary collars for sighthound breeds, like greyhounds and whippets, who's heads are smaller than their necks - allowing them to easily back out of regular collars. Unlike regular collars, martingales have a cinch loop that restricts when a dog pulls on a leash avoiding the possibility of escape - and relaxes when stopped or offleash.
Martingale collars allow dogs to wear their collar comfortably as it rests loosely on their necks, and tightens only when it needs to be snug around the neck. Martingales are also great for leash training and allow more flexibility than your average collar.
