Embroidered Collars Make Stylish Statements!

Choosing the right collar for your dog is crucial. It not only affects their comfort and safety but also how easily you can manage them during walks and training sessions. Our collection boasts both flat and martingale-style collars, each available in various designs and brimming with customization options. To find the best fit for your furry friend, it's essential to understand the differences between these collars. Let's dig in:

Standard Flat Collars

Ideal for everyday wear and basic training, the Standard Flat Collar is versatile enough for most breeds. While it's made for constant use, it's best to take it off when your dog is resting in their crate. With a range of designs and materials, they are user-friendly, especially those fitted with quick-release buckles. However, if your dog is the type to pull intensely, this collar might not be the most suitable. It's always key to consider your dog's individual habits.

Martingale Collars

Tailored for training and dogs with specific needs, the Martingale collar is your go-to for greater control, especially for dogs that pull or those with slender necks. Unlike the flat collar, it isn't designed for all-day wear but is ideal for specific activities like walks or training sessions. The collar's design ensures it fits securely without being too tight, particularly for dogs known to wriggle out of their collars. Proper fitting is paramount for your pet's safety, and we offer versions with or without buckles across most martingale styles.

A martingale collar isn't just another dog accessory. Its distinct design and functionality set it apart, making it a top pick for seasoned trainers and experienced dog owners. If you're searching for the ideal collar for your pup, understanding the martingale's unique benefits can guide your decision.

Escape-Proof Design

At the heart of the Martingale is its innovative two-part structure - a static segment (neck loop) and an adjustable control loop. When you hook the leash onto the D-ring of the control loop, it modifies its fit. This feature ensures the collar constricts sufficiently to stop your dog from wriggling out during those spirited tugs, yet remains safe without causing discomfort when correctly sized.

Manners & Training 

When it's time to teach your pup leash etiquette, the martingale stands out. The subtle tightening action of the control loop acts as a gentle deterrent against incessant pulling. A simple nudge from you can guide their focus away if they try to pull. If they don't get the hint, take a short break in your walk. Eventually, they'll link the feeling to the importance of a tug-free walk. If the pulling persists, consider consulting a professional for advanced leash training techniques.

IMPORTANT: It's crucial to remember that martingale collars are not ever suitable for tie-out situations.

Additional Considerations

Safe Use: Ideal during supervised strolls and training sessions. Given its design, it's wise to take off the martingale collar when your dog's at rest or playing freely to prevent unintended catches.

Getting the Perfect Fit: As with all collars, ensuring the right fit is paramount. The Martingale should feel snug, yet not restrictive

Choosing the perfect fit for a standard flat collar or a buckle martingale is a breeze:

Simply take a soft measuring tape* and circle it around your dog's neck where their collar would usually rest. Ensure it fits comfortably snug without being too tight. Jot down the measurement. When selecting a size, pick the one closest to your dog's exact neck size, keeping potential growth in mind. For example, if your young dog has a neck size of 13" and the options are 12" or 14", the 14" would be the better choice to accommodate growth. This measurement approach is also applicable to martingale collars equipped with buckles.

For a martingale collar without a buckle:

For slip-resistant martingale collars without buckles, there's an extra step: Measure from the top of your dog's throat, over the ears, and finish at the crown of their head.

*If you don't have a soft measuring tape on hand, a piece of string can do the trick. Once wrapped, lay it out and measure using a ruler.
