May is just around the corner, and that means much warmer weather and sunshine galore. This is always a great time to take inventory of your walking gear, and replace the old worn out items with some new cheery and ultra-functional collars, harnesses, and leashes. Just arrived are my personal favorite, the martingale collars.
Martingale collars, also known as double loop collars, slip over the head and can be worn a little more loose for comfort if so desired. They have a “loop” which will tighten the collar around your dog’s neck if they pull or try to back out of it. The advantage of using a martingale collar over a standard collar is that a standard buckle collar has to fit tight enough that it can’t slip over the ears when pulled forward by a dog backing up, it must be uncomfortably tight all the time. The martingale collar allows the dog to wear a comfortably loose collar that is only tight when it needs to be tight.
Hungry Hound carries martingale collars by Wiggles, Wags, and Whiskers, who guarantee their collars to not break. They come in tons of sizes and widths, are lined with comfy and soft velvet, and can even be machine washed!
