This collar’s sizing is so strange. Ordered my bulldog a medium according to the sizing instructions. His little round head is about the same size as his neck, but the collar would not slip over his head, it would barely go halfway. After a frustrating amount of effort working with customer service, they sent us a replacement collar the next size up. HUGE difference. The sizes go from a medium which can’t even fit over a small French bulldog’s head, to a large that could fit a Great Dane. The quality and usability of this collar is not great but decent, but that’s only if you have a dog that fits one of these strange and extremely varying sizes.
Website instructions for measuring are WRONG!!!!
I chatted with a representative for help picking out a new collar for my 9 lb terrier/chihuahua mix. The other collars I've tried had big buckles that rubbed her neck raw in the front and she'd developed a bald spot, so I was looking for a collar that would suit her size and body shape better and eliminate that rub point. This Martingale collar works perfectly to resolve that issue. But! The instructions for choosing the right size as listed here are missing an important detail found only on the products tag (see photo) and the third example photo. The smallest size it's adjustable to is the size the collar is WITH NO SLACK. Meaning that when the collar is slack, it's actually several inches larger. This information is not clearly displayed on the product information page! My dog's neck is pretty much exactly eight inches. I bought the 8-12 inch collar and even adjusted as tight as it will go, the collar is barely tight enough not to just fall over her head. The "8 inch" measurement is with all slack removed. But (assuming the smaller collar is designed with the same principle) if I go down a size, it won't adjust large enough to slide on over her head. If your dog's measurements are somewhere in the middle of the size range for this collar, then I highly recommend it. It's a fantastic design. But if you are at the top or bottom of any size range, then skip it; you will absolutely be disappointed.
Collar isn't what's pictured
I reordered "this" collar in red. The first one (blue) is a true martingale. The revised design is not. It has 2 separate loops and doesn't tighten the same. I got the same size and it won't fit over my dog's head. I had read reviews that it was changed but the picture matched so I went ahead and purchased. We will keep using the blue collar.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY
This collar clearly was not assembled correctly when compared to a true Martingale. The loops are all wrong and it is a complete waste of money. In the picture, the one I purchased is the blue one, the red one is a friends which is really a Martingale. Very disappointing for a PetSafe product!!!! I only gave it one star because I had to, it should have no stars.
Collar is awful
This is not a true Martingale collar and does not clasp on the dog. The "martingale" loop hangs in the front when not in use - catches on the dog door and gets in the way eating/drinking. Returning them.
This collar is tiny. I would definitely get a size or 2 bigger than you think you may need. My boy is tall and skinny, a slim 45 pounds and the medium was wayyy too small for him. The collar doesn't adjust so it wasn't able to work for him
Me and my Shadow
Year and a half old black and red GSD. Good dog. Loves to chase squirrels and cars, so we needed something he can't slip out of. Have gone through 3 size changes. The large works great. One suggestion though. Adjust the collar so that only has 2 or 3 fingers of slack. I originally left it too loose and he chewed on the part with the ring. I'll be ordering another 1 or 2 because he tends to love nylon.
I have included a review on this, in a prior review just submitted. I might add that the Medium, which I hesitated to try, as smaller than the original Medium of the same brand, that I purchased when I adopted from the shelter.
Highly reliable and very comfortable
I had a different martingale collar for my dog. It was tight to slip over her head, and she twisted out of it to go chase another dog. This collar slips over her head quite easily, is comfortable, and she cannot squirm out if it. I bought the leash to go with it. Big improvements!!! If she'd gotten out of the old collar near the road, she could have been hit by a car. So I feel much more secure with this reliable upgrade. Well designed.
Pros: Sturdy collar Purple and blue collars are rich in color Does “pinch” like collar should when pulled on Cons: Not size adjustable I ordered two collars, medium and large. I measured both of my dogs’ necks as instructed and ordered one in each size. The medium one would not fit over my puppy’s head at all, way too small. I tried the large on her and it did fit over her head, however the collar is loose on her neck. Her dog siblings could easily pull it off when playing. I didn’t bother trying to fit the large collar over my one year old lab, no way it would have fit over his head. I have had other martingale collars in other brands and they have a sliding adjuster to fit it well around the dog’s neck. I have also seen ones with buckles, but I would be afraid the buckle could fail. If I would have noticed there wasn’t a way to adjust the size, I would have not purchased this product.
