Jan's Martingale Collars and Walking Leads


Simple Martingale Tag Collar


This is the same webbing I use for my walking leads.  The simple collars will match the leads.


These are simple, utilitarian, martingale collars for holding our tags.  They are constructed of the same 3/4'' (600lb test) and 1'' (800lb test) polypropylene webbing as leash section on the collar and leash combinations and will match any of the whippet and greyhound size walking leads I have listed.  

This is our everyday collar that we wear around the house.  It is designed as a tag collar, and should not to be used with a leash.  For a smaller dog this might be ok, but it would not be strong enough for a large, powerful dog.

My collars and walking leads must NEVER be used to tie a dog up outside.  They are totally unsuitable for this purpose.
I have the simple collars listed on both Artfire and Zibbet. Please contact me if you need more

Martingale-type collars are the style recommended for all sight hounds such as greyhounds and whippets. These breeds have heavy, muscular, necks and smaller, tapered heads.  Regular, buckled collars and leashes simply slide off over their heads when they back up. Martingales will not.  They work on the same principle as a choke collar, but with a few major differences.  They tighten up when you pull on the top loop and D-ring, (but only to a limited range) and loosen up as soon as the pressure is removed.  So, you aren't ''choking'' your dog.

The plastic slide on the side allows you to adjust the size.  Make it large enough to fit over your dog's head.  As soon as you have it on him, adjust the slide to take up the extra room.  It does not need to be tight, just comfortable.  

Any time we go out of the yard we use our separate walking leads. These are worn in addition to (not instead of) our collars. This is a personal preference for both ascetics and safety.

(1) If the unthinkable should happen, and my dog would somehow slip out of the walking lead, (unlikely but not impossible) he would still have his collar and tags on.

(2) My walking leads are very strong and durable, but usually rather ornate.  If you use them exclusively for walking, they'll stay clean and good-looking for years.  




They work well on almost any breed.
Huck's soft, curly hair doesn't get tangled up in buckles or chain links.

These are the collars my own dogs wear around the house and out in the yard.  
I no longer list the simple collars in my Etsy or Indiemade shops and only make them as custom orders.

Please contact me if you need a tag collar to go with your lead.
