"Whippet" Style Collar Leash
Ideal alternative to choke collars for obedience training or for everyday use with any breed with a long, smooth neck such as Whippets, Boxers, Vizlas, many hounds, smooth-coated terriers or Dalmatians that require the support of a wide, padded collar or dogs with long fur like Bearded Collies or Papillons. Wide martingale collars are lined with microsuede and fasten to the leash with acetal buckles. Collars measure 2” (50mm) wide in the centre of the neckpiece and taper to 1” (25mm) wide on the sides; for mini dogs select the 1-1/2" (38mm) wide collar. The leash section is made of 1” (25mm) soft-touch tubular nylon climbing webbing. A sliding plastic 'stopper" makes it quick and easy to tighten the collar after sliding over your dog’s head or to remove the collar. This collar style prevents your dog from escaping by tightening up if the dog tries to back out. See below for collar measuring instructions. Leash measures 60” (1.5m). Oversize 7” (18cm) handle. Also available with fur tug portion and our Grip Ultra Bungee.
Measuring your Dog: To choose a collar size, measure around the thickest part of your dog’s neck behind the ears - a fabric tape measure or a string works best - or measure your dog's current collar from end to end (closed). Then select the martingale collar with the proper range of adjustment.
NOTE: A properly fitted martingale collar should be comfortably loose when there is no tension on the leash. When a dog pulls, the martingale collar will tighten to the dog's actual neck with buckles either touching or slightly apart.
I have been looking for this type of color for several years. They are easy on/off and perfect for my Havanese. I had them made 2 inches wide so they don't become tangled in their hair and it distributes the pressure better if they should pull.
Collars look fabulous. Fit really well and work really well over the slightly larger Papillon head.
