Why Choose an If It Barks Embroidered Martingale?
Standard Flat Collars
The genius behind the Martingale lies in its two-section composition - a fixed portion (neck loop) and a control loop. When you attach the leash to the D-ring on the control loop, it adjusts accordingly. This mechanism ensures that the collar tightens just enough to prevent your dog from slipping out, even with the most enthusiastic pulls, but will not tighten enough to cause harm.
Training and Manners
Martingale collars shine when you need to remind your pup about leash manners. The functionality of the control loop's gentle tightening discourages constant pulling. If your dog attempts to pull, a gentle reminder from your end can redirect their attention. If they persist, halt your walk momentarily. With time, they'll associate the sensation with the need to walk without tugging. Remember, if your dog keeps pulling, it might be time to seek professional training guidance for loose leash walking techniques.
IMPORTANT: A martingale collar is NEVER appropriate for tie-out use.
Additional Points to Remember
|Appropriate Uses and Safe Times: Primarily during supervised walks and training. Although highly functional, it's best to remove a martingale collar when your dog is relaxing or playing unsupervised to avoid accidental snags.|
Adjustment is Key: Like any collar, a proper fit is vital. Ensure that the Martingale offers a snug yet comfortable fit.
For a standard flat collar or a martingale with a buckle, measuring is a simple process:
For a martingale collar without a buckle:
*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.
Engraved buckle collars are:
- Safer - No snagging or catching while exploring and playing.
- Lighter and Less Bulky - Engraving frees your dog of any additional items being attatched to their collar.
- Quieter - No more tag jingle!
- Cost Effective - No need to replace lost tags!
Available Buckle Materials
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.
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.
We offer 3 lines of engraving with 15 characters on each line, offering you space to put your dogs name, phone numbers, microchip information, or whatever other information you deem important.
Standard (Buckle-Less) Martingale
Choosing the Perfect Collar Width
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 dogs comfort and safety.
