Correct Use of a Chain or Slip Collar - Drs. Foster and Smith

As mentioned above, fit for this collar is imperative, otherwise it becomes a choke, which is NOT the intended use. When the collar comes together on your dog (as it’s pulled tight), you should be able to fit your two fingers between it and your dog’s neck, just like with the flat collar. Then test to make sure your dog can’t slip out by bringing the loop on the martingale to the top of your dog’s head, then gently pull forward to test if your dog can back out when it’s tightened.

The ComfortFlex Limited Slip Collar is designed to keep your dogs both safe and comfortable on their walks. Choke Chain (Slip Collar) is a length of chain or nylon rope with rings at either end such that the collar can be formed into a loop around the top of the dog's neck, just behind the ears. The ring which connects to the leash goes over the back of the dog's neck, not under. When the leash is attached to the dead ring the collar does not constrict on the dog's neck. When the leash is attached to the live ring the chain slips (adjusts) tighter when pulled and slips looser when tension is released. This type of collar should never be left on an unattended dog and always removed when the leash is removed.
