PetSafe Martingale Collar
This martingale dog collar keeps your dog safer than ever. Martingale collars are safer than choke chains or prong collars. Used with a leash or with your hand, the martingale collar tightens when your dog pulls and loosens when he stops, so it’s only tight when it needs to be. These collars give you greater control and reduce the risk of your dog slipping out and escaping.
- Tightens when dog pulls for better control and loosens when dog stops pulling
- Safer & more comfortable than a choke chain that's always tight
- Secure fit prevents dogs from escaping or backing out of collar
- Perfect for 'escape artists' and breeds with necks larger than their heads
- Custom fit is perfect for growing puppies
- Doesn't cause matting & bald spots like some standard collars
- Not recommended for tie-out use or during group play sessions
- Made of nylon
The Premier Collar "Your Dog's Neck's Best Friend". With a leash or with your hand, the Premier collar tightens to give greater control and reduces the risk of escape. Because it offers limited closure, it's safer than a traditional choke collar . Unlike other collars, the measurement taken for the Premier Collar is at the top if the neck directly behind the ears. This corresponds with the size of the collar in the closed position, so it is not necessary to add inches. For example if your adult dog measures 14-inch directly behind the ears, choose a medium collar. Sizing recommendations 5-inch - 8-inch Petite, 8-inch - 12-inch Small, 10-inch - 16-inch Medium, 14-inch - 20-inch Large, 18-inch - 28-inch Extra Large. Once you've selected the proper size, simply place the larger opening over your dog's head. Adjust to fit by pushing the nylon through the slide. When tightened with a leash or by grasping the smaller nylon loop like a handle, the two metal rings should touch directly behind your dog's ears. Attach tags to these rings rather than the D-ring. The smaller nylon loop will lie flat after few days of wear.
Color: ROYAL BLUE | Size: SMALL (NYLON WIDTH 3/4")

1st picture: this is an example of what people are showing “defective” and does not work. And they are right. If you use the collar how it looks right there, it would not work... you are using the wrong opening. SO
2nd - Separate the collar where my fingers show.
3rd - NOW put the collar on with the dogs head through the big opening.
4th - the collar arrives on the tightest setting. This picture shows the collar when it has been made more loose. Again, dogs head goes through the large hole, and now you will see how the collar can tighten when the dog pulls.
Hopefully this helps some people! It’s really a good and effective collar. I got one from the shelter I found my dog at and he outgrew that one so I needed the next size up.
The only issue I had with the collar was around the edges where it is sewn together. Most of the edges seemed kind of sharp. It felt like it was scratching my hands when I pet near the collar, although it never seemed to bother my pup. After a few days, I took a lighter and melted down all the edges a little. Problem solved. I've added some pictures to illustrate the area where I melted it down.
We've been using this collar for about 4 months now and it is holding up great.
Note: Ignore the silver ID tag attached to the collar in the photos. That did NOT come with the collar.
One thing in common about all 3 of my dogs (2 Pit bulls, 1 Greyhound/Shepherd mix) is that they have small faces and wide necks.
Normal collars they can slip out, or back out of.
The Martingale Petsafe collar they call a 'NO SLIP COLLAR' because they can't slip out of the collar when leashed.
The Animal Shelter I Volunteer at uses Petsafe Martingale collars for every Medium to Large dog, because it is such a good brand and you don't have to worry about losing a dog when you take it for a walk.
I recommend the 1" COLLAR not the 3/4. In my experience, the 3/4 with bigger dogs folds up and just doesn't work as well.
****Also please do not leave your dog unattended at home alone with this collar on.*******
Take it off your dog when you come inside. I've heard it can be a strangulation problem.
I wanted to return it but unfortunately there is no way to remove this so I had to cut it off. No buckle, and the recommended size I cannot make any bigger to slip off over head. Went on fine over ears, but can’t slipoff. And the secondar circle nhangs and I fear he would get it hooked on something. Ordering one with quick release and functioning mechanism that actually tightens collar. Then I can use easily when we go out rather than leave on.
How this got so many positive reviews I am befuddled. Was cheap enough I can toss away. A brand name I recognized (PetSafe) but how the heck this makes sense must be above my pay grade.

Este collar me ha salido más barato y tiene mejor calidad, se adapta fácilmente al perro y facilita sacarlo a pasear.
UPDATE (over a year later)
Changed my rating from 4 to 5 stars. Wish there were more pattern/colour options. Collar still in great condition. Still love that there is no buckle or plastic hardware. No noticeable wear on the metal or fabric. Keep in mind that my dog does not wear a collar 100% of the day, and it is adjusted properly so that is not too loose that the collar hangs and she has access to chew it, nor is it too tight that I cannot slip it off with ease. Great collar for narrow headed breads (ex. greyhounds), training, and proper everyday use.
If you check the photos that I attached to this review, the small loop appears almost as big as the large loop. That's why it sagged and my dog was able to chew it. There is no way to shorten it. In contrast, the small loop in the product photo appears much smaller than the large loop. This isn't the case in the actual product.
If your dog is a chewer like mine, this isn’t the collar for you.
Lo recomiendo y más porque lo compré a 96 pesos mexicanos, se me hizo justo el precio.
Yo compré talla L, para mi cachorro de 1 año pastor alemán y le quedó super bien, tiene buena amplitud para agrandarse más, aunque realmente a mí cachorro no le ha funcionado ya que aunque le apriete el cuello, el tiene una fuerza tremenda que ni siente que le ahorca el collar, pero por lo demás muy bien. Tienen que ponerlo adecuadamente, asegúrense porque sino pensarán que no sirve el producto.
El tamaño mediano en su ajuste mínimo mide cerca de 9.5" (24 cm.) de circunferencia cuando el collar se "cierra", y cuando está holgado mide aproximadamente 12" (31 cm.) Es muy práctico para ponérselo y quitárselo al perro.
El material es de muy buena calidad y está muy bien reforzado, hasta el momento no he visto que mi perro se sienta incómodo cuando llega a tirar de la correa.
