WHY MY CUSTOMERS CRAA-AAAVE A MARTINGALE COLLAR

 

MY DOG NO LONGER PULLS ON THE LEASH

Martingale are gentle choke collars but don't hurt your dog's trachea.  It will gently tighten on the neck with equal pressure around the collar and is a gentle reminder not to pull.

MY DOG DOESN'T SLIP OUT OF HER/HIS COLLAR

Because it gently tightens, it will not slip off of your dog's head as long as it's tight enough - but not too tight, leave space around the neck, at least two finger

MARTINGALE COLLARS ARE BEAUTIFUL

Number 1 Reason - There is no buckle, there are two loops.  The design is interesting, functional, and GORGEOUS.  Once you try a martingale, you never go back.

 

What is a martingale collar...   a martingale collar has two loops.  The leash is attached to the smaller loop, and when the dog pulls, this loop gently tightens the larger loop evenly around the dog's neck.  Many dog owners don't know what a martingale collar is, but when they try one, they never go back!  99% of Houndstooth Pets' collar sales are Martingale Collars!

History...   martingale dog collars were originally designed for sighthounds, such as greyhounds, salukis, whippets, etc.  Sighthounds typically have the same size neck as head and could easily slip out of a regular buckle collar.  

Is a martingale difficult to put on and take off...    no - there is one slide that the material adjusts through to make the collar larger and smaller.  Once your pup starts wearing the collar, it becomes more pliable and easily adjusts after a week or two, depending on how often you take off the collar.  I remove my pups collars every night and even during the day if it's a hot day, so I've noticed that within a week they adjust very easily.  It will also depend on the thickness of the material.

 

See the above diagram to see how a Martingale works.  It must be large enough to slip over your dog's head, then once the collar is on the neck, it can easily be tightened to fit around the neck (leave space, about two fingers of space).
