A martingale collar
is also known as a greyhound collar. The
martingale collar was designed for dogs whose necks are larger than their heads
(like greyhounds, whippets, italian greyhounds, and other sighthounds); but
martingale collars have gained popularity among other breed owners who prefer
the gentle control of a martingale collar over a choke chain, owners of dogs
who try to back out of their traditional buckle collars, and agility and flyball
trainers who want a handle on their dog's collar at all times.
A martingale collar is fitted to the exact size
of the dog's neck when the dog collar is in
the closed position. Properly fitted, the collar will
be comfortably loose when not in use. When the martingale
loop is pulled, the collar should be very snug, but
should not constrict the airway. If properly fitted,
a martingale collar is safe to wear everyday, but if
used in training as an alterative to a choke chain,
the martingale collar should be adjusted to fit slightly
tighter for the time of supervised training only. Click
