Ultimate Guide to If It Barks Dog Collars

Choosing the right style of collar for your dog is important, as it affects safety, comfort, and control during walks and training. We offer flat and martingale-style collars in a variety of styles and with a plethora of customizable options. Understanding the differences between these two can help you select the most suitable collar for your pet's needs. Here's a comparison to guide:

Standard Flat Collars

The Standard Flat Collar is suitable for everyday wear and basic training. It's a good fit for most breeds and can be worn all the time, but should be removed if your dog is crated. Available in various designs and materials, flat collars are easy to put on and take off, especially those with quick-release buckles. However, flat collars are not ideal for dogs that pull hard while on a leash, so understanding your dog's specific needs is essential.

Martingale Collars

Martingale collars are specially designed for training and specialized needs, providing more control for dogs that pull and for breeds with slimmer necks and narrow heads. Unlike a standard flat collar, it's not ideal for constant daily wear and should primarily be used during walks or training sessions. Martingale collars offer a customized fit, especially for dogs with a tendency to slip out of collars and provide gentle control without choking. Proper adjustment is required to ensure safety with this collar, and we offer both buckle and non-buckle options for almost all of our martingale collar styles.

For a standard flat collar or a martingale with a buckle, measuring is a simple process:

Using a soft measuring tape*, measure around your dog’s neck where their collar would normally rest. Adjust the tape until it is snug, but not tight. Record this measurement, and choose the available size that is closest to your dog's exact neck size, considering future sizing. (i.e. if you have a puppy who has an exact neck size of 13", but the sizes 12" and 14" are available, we would recommend sizing to 14" to allow room to grow.) This measuring technique is also appropriate for martingale collars WITH buckles.

For a martingale collar without a buckle:

For no-slip martingale collars without a buckle, you will also need to measure around your dog's head, from the top of the dog's throat, over the ears, to the top of their head.

*If you do not have a soft measuring tape, use a piece of string to do the measuring and then lay it flat to measure with a ruler.

A personalized, engraved buckle promotes the return of your dog in the unfortunate event that they do go missing. It has been reported that over the course of their lives, 33% of all dogs will go missing at least once. Better safe than sorry, we say.

Engraved buckle collars are:

  1. Safer - No snagging or catching while exploring and playing.
  2. Lighter and Less Bulky - Engraving frees your dog of any additional items being attached to their collar.
  3. Quieter - No more tag jingle!
  4. Cost Effective - No need to replace lost tags!

We offer 3 lines of engraving with 15 characters on each line, offering you space to put your dog's name, phone numbers, microchip information, or whatever other information you deem important.

Available Buckle Materials

Plastic - Plastic buckles are lightweight, durable, and waterproof, and are included in the base price for all of our collars. They are strength rated for almost all pullers 

Aluminum - Aluminum buckles are the most heavy-duty option, providing both style and security in a compact package. Aluminum buckles aren't recommended for saltwater use.

Choosing the Perfect Collar Width

If It Barks offers most of our custom collars in three different width options for you to choose from; 3/4", 1", and 1.5".

We generally recommend 3/4" collars for small dogs, 1" for medium to large dogs, and 1.5" for medium to extra-large dogs. 

Note: 1" is the most common flat collar width, and 1.5" is the most popular width for martingale-style collars. Collar width is important to consider for your dog's comfort and safety.
