I was really hoping this collar cinched as advertised, and I purchased the collar according to their size recommendations. But it barely cinches as shown in the video and I had to take it in tight around my dog’s neck to be certain it wouldn’t slip off her head if she tried to back out. Great idea but poorly executed.
We LOVE this collar! We have a high energy Weimaraner that likes to pull on his leash. We always used positive reinforcement training with him, so I didn’t want to use a choke collar, but I needed to make sure he didn’t slip out of his normal collar. We started using this one, and it’s perfect! It cinches just enough to make it a little tight without hurting our boy, and making sure he doesn’t slip out. Plus, dad approves of the awesome print! We have one in camo, too. We will never use another collar!
It’s hard to find a martingale collar for small dogs. The rescue we are using requires one at pick up. I’m not sure they will even count this as a martingale. There is hardly any difference when cinched. It’s a cute collar and I don’t always use this type of collar so I will likely keep it, but know that it may not be what you are expecting!
Bongo and I love this collar! It closes just enough where I feel so much safer, but not too much to where I worry about choking him. The colors are beautiful in a very sophisticated and one of a kind print.
