This collar (large) is way too big for my dog, who uses a 22" chain collar. It measures almost 29-1/2" fully extended and when you slide it down to a good fit, I think it doesn't look right with all the leather overlap. Good quality and nice look, but size down!
Only had this collar for about three weeks and it had split in the leather. Do not buy.
I was pleased to find a martingale made with the chain style release. Extra small is hard to find. I would have given it 5 stars if it had been available in a quarter inch width for the extra small size. The width on this collar makes it a tad heavy for an extra small dog.
The collar appears to be high quality but after only a few months of wear the nickel plating wore off and now it turns my dogs white fur gray! So disappointed.
SIZE DOWN. I bought a size large for my 8 month old growing Bernese mountain dog who is 60lbs and according to the size chart the large should fit perfectly, however it seems the size is based off of when you pull on the collar not when you tighten it and simply put on the collar. It's way too big for my girl when tightened all the way. Unfortunately we will have to wait at least 1-3 months before using this collar as it falls too low on her neck to use right now. The quality is also lacking to say the least and it also does not have a buckle which is odd for day to day use. I should have seen it doesn't have a buckle so that is on me but all in all I definitely do NOT recommend this martingale collar.
It was good up until it turned Rigby’s fur gray. Won’t buy again.
I went by the size chart and got a large for one dog and x-large for the other. They are both just too big for them. They are almost a year and a half old so I have fingers crossed that they will hopefully grow into them. It seems sturdy and my favorite part is no plastic clasp and a chain portion. Exactly what I wanted. Will have to wait a bit to see if they will grow into them.
Collar works great for my Husky very adjustable and comfortable
It's more brown than burgundy... also, if you have a smaller dog and you're in between small/medium, i would suggest sizing down. I have a frenchie and I didn't want it to be too small so i went with a medium. It definitely fits and is not too big, but I think a small would have worked well, too, and not been as wide.
So this is most likely my fault. I thought there was a buckle with this. The slip is not easy to move to make the collar fit appropriately. I have a martingale from Kong that buckles (which of course he has outgrown) and that is so much easier to use. The Kong actually "snaps" in like body harnesses and mountain packs fasten. Unfortunately, I got this Kong from another place and didn't see anything large enough on the Chewy website that would do all that I wanted - I looked after I received this collar. Anyway, just be careful when you are looking at the pictures as it can be tricky and you can see something that isn't really indicative of the product.
