We first started making “greyhound collars” aka martingale style dog collars for our retired racing Greyhounds, back in 2003. At first, we focused only on 1.5″ and 2″ wide martingales, but after requests from non-sighthound dog parents, we quickly added other sizes, and eventually other styles of collars, leashes, and the Freedom Harness.
Martingale dog collars are often used for all breeds of dogs and provide the controlled, escape-proof dog walking experience pet owners need, while also being a helpful tool during training. With one versatile, safe, and easy to use tool, you never have to worry about putting your pup in harm’s way.
The best martingale collars can perfectly suit your pooch’s personality and behavior. Important features include:
- High-quality premium material for durability (we use VERY strong webbing and industrial sewing machines)
- Heavy-duty hardware for strength (we use stainless steel D-rings and squares on our martingale collars)
- Being safe, comfortable, and stylish (obv…)
We make martingale collars at price points starting from around $8 all the way up to $50+.
Here’s a guide to the five best martingale collars styles available on our website in 2021.
Nylon Martingale Collar (Multiple Solid Color Options)
Looking for a nylon collar that will protect your dog in a way that’s both gentle and effective? This budget-friendly collar is worth consideration, available in 19 colors with Made in the USA Nylon.
First, the collar is made using nylon webbing — tested to pull up to 3800lbs — which makes it heavy-duty while also keeping things comfortable for your pup on walks.
Plus, the stainless-steel hardware makes the collar resistant to rust and corrosion, ensuring that it will last longer.
