Martingale Dog Collars and Head Collars

As a dog parent, you know that no two pets are ever the same. Some dogs are quick to learn cues such as “heel,” while others are more adept at wriggling loose from their collar or pulling on their leash. Martingale and head collars (also known as head harnesses), when fitted and used correctly after training, are management and safety tools making daily walks a more pleasurable experience for you and your pup.

Frequently Asked Questions

Martingale collars consist of a large loop that encircles the neck and a smaller loop with a ring for attaching the leash. When your dog pulls, the large loop tightens.

The martingale is a management and safety tool. Make sure your martingale is fitted properly. Proper fit for all collars is very important. To get the proper fit, adjust the collar down to fit around the neck, however, not too tight. There should not be any pulling by handler as to not cause injury.

Martingale collars should be snug but not too tight. At its tightest, there should be space for 1-2 fingers between the collar and the dog’s neck. Once the martingale is relaxed, there should be plenty of extra space between the collar and the dog depending on where it sits on the dog’s neck. Be sure to read the instructions regarding the fit and use of the specific collar, check the size before purchasing.

Head collars resemble a figure-eight. One loop circles the muzzle, while the other circles the neck. The two loops meet at the chin, which is also the connection point for the leash.

Check the instructions that come with the specific product and, when in doubt, consult a trainer about proper size and fit.
