Many of my clients wonder what type of collar I recommend and my answer has always been a Martingale/no-slip collar/Combo Collar (as seen on my dog, Daisy) which are escape-proof collars that tighten as dogs pull.
If a dog spooks and tries to back out of the collar, it will tighten, and the dog will stay securely with the dog’s handler.
Many people love to buy the standard buckle collars because they are easy to find, inexpensive, and fashionable but the problem with these collars is that it is the same tightness all the time so if a dog were to get spooked while wearing this type of collar they could pull out of it and escape.
The above picture is an example of what many dogs' collars look like before they go for a walk; the collar is too loose and can easily be pulled right over the dogs' head and then be in danger of running into the street and become injured, lost, or killed.
If owners bought a Martingale (also known as Combo Collars by the popular Lupine company) and fit it properly as shown in the illustration above they would find themselves walking their dogs with more control and peace of mind.
If you would like to give these amazing Martingale collars a try they are reasonably priced at LupinePet and at Collargirl.com!
I hope this post is a great help to all!
