Martingale or “Sighthound” Collar

Four martingale collars

Martingale Collars

This loop on loop system is traditional to sighthound collars and prevents the dog from escaping by tightening up if the dog tries to back out. A martingale collar is also often called a “safety” collar. Hardware is attached by either a triple stitch or an extremely tight buttonhole stitch for maximum strength.

The martingale collars come in four styles and three widths so you can find your perfect match. While most commonly worn by sighthounds, many other breeds with a long, clean neck look great in them such as Great Danes, Vizlas, and other working and sporting breeds.
