Here's the "Kindness" collar we got from Carol at Dogsinstyle. To paraphrase "The Most Interesting Man Alive," Beau doesn't always wear a collar, but when he does, he wears this one.

I noticed the diagram I posted on how to measure for a martingale disappeared, so here is is again. (Maybe the sighthound saw something and ran off after it??)

To measure your dog for a Martingale Collar, use a soft tape measure or a piece of string and take the measurements at point A, B, and C in the drawing below. Choose the size that fits within this range to ensure that your collar fits perfectly.


For Sighthounds, the measurement at points A and B may be the same or very similar, this is because their heads are often the same size or smaller than their necks. For non-sighthounds, these measurements will be different and you will need to choose a collar size that is large enough to slip over the head (point A) but not too large to fit correctly at point B.

In other words, choose the smallest size that will still fit your dog. If your dog has a 15 inch neck, choose the Medium, which is adjustable from 13-18 inches rather than the Large, which is adjustable from 15-20 inches.

I bought one for the Killer Fang. Paid over thirty dollars for. She did not appear to like it and to make her point she chewed it in half the first night. She now wears her pink collar.

I got a Martingale for Tonka shortly after I got him. Inside, outside... I never take it off. I do give him a really gooood scratch underneath it regularly.

I just saw this 'blog' in Fb, tho . . and I thought I'd pass it on. It probably doesn't say much more than the experienced posts in this thread, but it sums up some of them and it's easy to read.

I had to laff, tho... mostly it's a blatant ad for dog accessories . . . but there's some nice Martingales at the links in the 'blog'!

I am so sorry that I have not responded back to everyone! I have had a very interesting month! I was without power for half of a week, and then still had to clean up things after a major storm came through and tore up trees and powerlines and every thing else that it could. I haven't seen so many trees lost everywhere out here. Even after Katrina and Rita, we didn't have this much damage to the forests. It looked as if it were tornadoes, but they said it was straight line winds. We are getting back to normal, so I hope to be able to focus on fun things again soon.

You folks are the best, and now I have a lot of pretties to look through and decide between. Thanks everyone!

Glad you came out of it safely. We had the same kind of wind through here last June. The weather people called it a derecho. We were driving when it hit, and I really wasn't sure we'd get out of it safely--really scary. We were among the few who didn't lose power or have severe damage, so we ended up with my son's family plus his wife's 91 year old grandfather here for a week. It was fun, in a perverse sort of way, to have a houseful, sort of like summer camp, but for most people it was a real disaster. It took months for parts of the state to recover.

Sorry Mother Nature has been such a spoiler out your way, AngelsMommy! We went through it (power out for 13 days, some downed trees, a bit of damage to our home) with superstorm Sandy a while back. Still heartbreaking to see all the uprooted and downed large trees, not to mention the number of homes lost or badly damaged and sadly some tragic deaths as well. Glad things are getting better for your now. Stay safe!

On a happier note, I will not admit to how many of these hemp martingale collars Chagall has, but let's just say the good people at earthdog: quality hemp dog collars, dog leashes and other products for your pets and I are on a first name basis.

I use these

Martingale Leashes

I don't keep a collar on at home and these one piece leash/collars are stellar for quick walks. She also has separate ones.

But as others said the metal ring tangles pup's hair viciously and I'm going to stop using martingales, and get a rolled leather collar I can leave on her.
