Coastal Pet Products Sublime® Martingale Adjustable Dog Collar
Martingale collars are also known as Greyhound Collars or Humane Choke Collars. The Martingale Dog Collar was designed for Sight hounds (ie, Greyhounds, Whippets, Italian Greyhounds, Borzoi, Saluki, etc) because their necks are larger than their head and they can slip out of traditional side release dog collars; these collars have gained popularity as training dog collars with other breeds in the recent past because trainers prefer the humane choke aspects.
Martingale Collars have 2 loops. The smaller of the loops is called the "Control Loop". This is the portion of the collar that is attached to the leash and tightens when it is pulled. The second loop is the adjustment loop. This is the part of the dog collar that you adjust to the right size to fit your dog.
Many trainers have started to recommend Martingale Collars because they prefer its gentle choke over the choke chain. Others have learned about Martingale Collars and have made the switch just because they like them better than traditional dog collars.

How to size for Martingale Dog Collar:
To properly size your dog for a collar, use a flexible measuring device such as a tailor's measuring tape. If you don't have one or the measuring device you have may potentially harm your dog, use a string and measure it when you have determined the correct length.
Adjust the tape or string by the appropriate amount to ensure that it will easily slip on and off their head and neck; this will be about 1 inch on small dogs and 2 inches or more on medium and large dogs. This will differ between all dogs as it really depends on the size and shape of both the dog's head and ears.
Once this has been done, this is the minimum size that you will need to order. Note that the collar may need to be adjusted once it slips over the dog's head as you do not want it too loose around their neck - ideally it should have about 2 inches of play or 2 finger widths between the collar and dog's neck.
