This Martingale collar is made of soft velboa “fur” fabric in 4 different sizes and a variety of colors. The collar is the same construction as our popular one-piece Martingale Leashes, only terminating in a D-Ring instead of continuing as a flat fur leash. Any standard Snap style leash will work with this collar.
We now offer two different types of slides with the Martingale Soft Collars. Some customers prefer to have the collar fabric slide freely through the slides, while other customers prefer to have some friction so that the collar stays put when you tighten it to a particular diameter. With either slide, the collar will tighten when the leash is pulled. The difference is when the leash pressure is relaxed. The Narrow slides will hold the collar in place, while the Wide slides will allow the collar to open up. It’s a matter of preference – and now you can choose!
The martingale design causes the neck loop to gently tighten around your dog’s neck when he pulls on the leash. With the right size, the collar will hit the stops, where it cannot tighten further, without chocking the dog. The combination of this gentle tightening and the super soft material provides the maximum in safety and comfort.
These martingales are wider than our Sylvans designer martingales. The width dimension 1″ and 1.5″ refers to the nylon webbing that provides the structural strength of the collar. The soft fabric extends a bit beyond the nylon on each side, so that the total width of the 1″ martingale is actually about 1.25″ and the width of the 1.5″ version is actually about 2″. These are wide martingale collars, providing maximum comfort for your dog.
