COLLAR DESCRIPTIONS

Side Release Buckle
SIDE RELEASE BUCKLE DOG COLLAR – The Side Release Buckle collar has a plastic, easy open buckle. Like the collars described below, the side release buckle collar is adjustable. This is a good everyday collar to hang tags on.
Slide/No Buckle
SLIDE/NO BUCKLE DOG COLLAR – The Slide/No Buckle collar is named because it slides over the dog’s head and is adjusted on his neck as there is no buckle. This is a sleek design, with less hardware bulk around the dog’s neck. It takes a little adjusting to put on and take off, but it is is a gorgeous style. A good collar for everyday wear and hanging tags.
Martingale Dog Collar
MARTINGALE DOG COLLAR – The Martingale collar is also known as a humane or limited choke. That is because the collar is adjusted to fit the dog’s neck so when the the leash is pulled the loop tightens only to the point of the circumference of the dog’s neck and won’t pull any further. The Martingale collar should be used for walking and is not an everyday collar. They were originally designed for dogs such as the Whippet and Greyhound whose necks are larger than their heads, but have fallen into favor with owners of other breeds and are used by reward-based dog trainers.
Chain Martingale Dog Collar
CHAIN MARTINGALE DOG COLLAR – The Chain Martingale collar is the same as the above, but the pulley loop is made of chain instead of fabric. Neither Martingale collar should be used as everyday collars. They are suitable for walking.
