Martingale Collar or Sighthound Collar

Four martingale collarsStyles of 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.

    do you have a glow in the dark Whippet Collar?

    • Northwind says:

      I do not have glow in the dark, but I do have reflective collars. Reflective tape, much like you will see on a jogger’s jacket, is stitched onto the collar

  5. I have two retired racing Greyhounds who are now not only AKC Advanced Canine Good Citizens but are also Therapy Dogs International Trained Volunteers and work with teens who are in therapy for alcohol and drug abuse. One dog is jet black and the other is a blonde brindle, I get tons of compliments on them, but I must tell you one of the compliments is always about the “Elegant Collars” that they wear.

    I must thank you for the beautiful work that you do with the gorgeous collars and matching leads you make, I wash them often and they always look wonderful and like new, and last for years. I pass on your web info to everyone I know. Thank You

    I received my Wide Martingale Collar today and was very impressed with both the speed of shipping and the quality of the collar…two thumbs up! My little whippet girl is sure to be very pleased.

    I had not realized until after my purchase… that the lead/collar that came with our puppy from the breeder is a Northwind also!
