Our Signature Martingale-style collars are gentle and self-adjusting. They are made using the finest fabrics and materials, from lush velvets, durable plaids, and silken grosgrain ribbons, to intricate brocades and sturdy denim. The handcrafted collars and leashes are constructed using quality and hardware. Collars are lined for comfort and are triple stitched at stress points to ensure lasting durability.
Once you've selected the collar material for your special canine, a perfectly matching leash can also be crafted for the ultimate in style, fashion and statement!
Collars are priced according to width of ribbon used. Most collars range between $16 to $34, not including shipping and tax.
What is a martingale collar? According to Wikipedia - "A martingale is a type of dog collar that provides more control over the animal without the choking effect of a slip collar. Martingale dog collars are also known as greyhound, whippet or humane choke collars. The martingale dog collar was designed for sighthounds because their necks are larger than their heads and they can often slip out of buckle collars. These collars have gained popularity among other breed owners in the recent past with many trainers now recommending them instead of choke chains or buckle collars.
A martingale collar is made with two loops. The larger loop is slipped onto the dog’s neck and a leash is then clipped to the smaller loop with a “D” ring. When the dog tries to pull, the tension on the leash pulls the small loop taut, which makes the large loop smaller and tighter on the neck, thus preventing escape. Properly fitted, the collar will be comfortably loose when not in use."
