The Martingale Dog Collar
When you are buying supplies for your dog, you need to make sure that you are buying the right item and nowhere is this more important than with the collar! A collar is designed to hold the dog's identification tags and to make sure that you can keep the dog secure. When you are thinking about these things, it is important to consider the Martingale type collar.
A Martingale collar is essentially made up of two parts. The first part is the strap that fits around the dog's throat. Instead of being a closed circle, this strap has d-rings on either end that allow the second part of the collar to loop through the ends of the first part. The ends of the second loop are joined in a single o-ring, where a leash can be snapped on.
When the leash is pulled, the second loop closes, causing the first loop to tighten around the dog's neck, Unlike a regular collar, where the pressure is put directly over the dog's trachea, the martingale collar tightens at all points around the dog's neck. This prevents the dog from injuring its neck if it lunges or if it tries to run on ahead of you.
These collars are designed to prevent harm to every dog, but it is worth noting that they are especially good for sight hounds like the Whippet, the Saluki and the Greyhound. These dogs are all trained to take off running if they see something interesting, and unless they are being restrained on a martingale collar, they can hurt themselves. Look into a collar made for a grayhound for your beloved pet rather than simply choosing a regular collar that could cause you to lose control and possibly harm your dog.
Martingale collars come in a variety of different materials. The only restriction is that the collar should be slick enough to pull through the loops if the dog gets ahead of itself. You may choose collars in nylon webbing, in a very light leather or even of fabric.
Take a minute to learn more about which collars that are right for your dog and take a few minutes to think about what the right choice might be. One that suits you and you dog!
