Martingale collars are ideal for sighthounds (such as whippets, greyhounds, Borzoi, Saluki, and so on), and similar breeds with a neck as wide as or wider than their head. Martingale collars are walking collars and should be worn under supervision. It should be removed when indoors.
If you have decided to use a martingale collar it is imperative you understand how to adjust it. If the adjustment is good then when it tightens it will only contract to the size of your dog’s neck and no further, this ensures your dog isn’t choked in the process. Before you start using the martingale collar make sure you have thoroughly checked the adjustment.

HOW DOES MARTINGALE COLLAR WORK?
- Martingale collars were designed to gently tighten around the neck when your dog pulls suddenly so it won’t slip over your doggo’s head when under pressure.
- The Martingale Collar consists of a length of material with a metal slide at each end. A separate loop of material passes through the two sliders to create the martingale loop. Your leash then attaches to a D ring on this loop.
- When your dog tries to back out of the martingale, the collar tightens around their neck. The main part of the collar is adjustable and when the collar is properly fitted it will tighten just to the size of your doggo’s neck, it won’t choke him/her but will prevent the dog from escaping.
- The difference between a martingale dog collar and a traditional dog collar is that the martingale collar has two loops.
- First loop: for adjusting size around your dog’s neck
- Second loop: to give extra control when a lead is attached so when your dog starts to pull, the collar will tighten around your dog’s neck without choking. Once your dog stops pulling the tension is released and the collar will slacken.
HOW TO MEASURE FOR CORRECT SIZE?
These collars slip on over the head, therefore, two measurements are needed. Please measure the dog's neck where the collar would sit naturally and the widest part of the head ensuring that the collar can be slipped on and off easily. Select the size of the collar accordingly. Make sure that:
- The size of your dog's neck is not smaller than the minimum measurement of the collar when fully tightened
- The size of your dog's head is not bigger than the maximum measurement of the collar when fully relaxed
Properly fitted, the collar will be comfortably loose whenever the dog is not pulling against the lead.
Note: If your dog pulls, before deciding to change your dog’s collar you should first try positive training techniques and get advice off a professional. Most dogs should be able to comfortably walk with a normal collar and lead with adequate training.
