"Whippet" Style Collar Leash
Wide, padded collar distributes the load and helps to prevent neck injuries. Also helps to prevent fur from tangling on 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 5cm (2”) wide in the centre of the neckpiece and taper to 25mm (1”) wide on the sides; for mini dogs select the 38mm (1-1/2") wide collar. The leash section is made of 25mm (1") soft-touch tubular nylon climbing webbing. A sliding plastic leash '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 1.5m (60”). Oversize 18cm (7”) 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 really like the feel of the leash, very soft in my hands and there is no burning if he pulls. The collar is soft and is comfortable around his neck. It slides on and off easily. I would highly recommend this collar / leash. The only thing is when I ordered it I wanted to order it at 10 1/2 inches, however it would not accept that so I ordered at 10". It is a bit small than I would have liked but it works well.
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.
