How to measure for a Martingale Dog Collar

A Martingale collar is not a half-check collar. It looks similar, but the Martingale is made entirely of nylon which reduces the chance of the dog’s hair or skin getting caught in chain. They’re sold in narrow or wider widths for better control. You can find Martingale collars with the little loop made out of chain.

A martingale collar fits loosely on a dog’s neck but tightens when it needs to.

A Buckle Martingale Dog collar offers the easy on/off option of a standard dog collar with the increased functionality of the martingale loop. This option is great for very large dogs with large heads because you can take the collar on and off without readjusting it each time to fit over the head. Martingale Collars have 2 loops. The smaller of the loops is called the "Control Loop". This is the portion of the collar that is attached to the leash and tightens when it is pulled. The second loop is the adjustment loop. This is the part of the dog collar that you adjust to the right size to fit your dog. Martingale collars are also known as or Humane Choke Collars. The Martingale Dog Collar was designed for Sighthounds (ie, Greyhounds, Whippets, Italian Greyhounds, Borzoi, Saluki, etc) because their necks are larger than their head and they can slip out of traditional side release ; these collars have gained popularity as with other breeds in the recent past because trainers prefer the humane choke aspects.A martingale collar is made with two loops. The larger loop is slipped onto the dogs neck and a lead is then clipped to the smaller loop. When the dog tries to pull, the tension on the lead pulls the small loop taut, which makes the large loop smaller and tighter on the neck, thus preventing escape. Properly fitted, the collar will be comfortably loose when not in use.
