Chain collars are puppy-proof, chew-proof, and easily customizable for your growing dog, cat, or other animal
It is best for your dog if you avoid using a choke chain. More humane collars and good obedience training should make it unnecessary to resort to this aversive collar.
Martingale collars are like flat collars but they tighten when the dog pulls. Even though they tighten, they are generally not used for giving a correction the way a choke chain is. Rather, they are used because they are less likely to slip over the dog’s head when adjusted correctly than a flat collar is. These collars should be adjusted so that even at their tightest they cannot accidentally strangle the dog

Martingale collars come in all sorts of colors so you can find the right style for your unique dog. For example, dogIDs carries a that is made with heavy-duty nylon material for the first loop and a steel chain for the second loop. If you prefer an option that’s all nylon, check out the new embroidered .Most people can name this collar, as a lot of people use them. A type of this collar is often used for showing dogs as well. This dog training collar is a chain that goes completely around the dog's neck, with two rings at the top. We have two bully mix dogs with thick necks..a regular flat collar does nothing for correction with these types of dogs..and a regular chain slip collar is ineffective because the narrowness keeps them from really feeling it until they are pulling too hard..the only benefit for chain for them is the click sound of a snap correction. But we have found that in most cases, martingales work best. We use a 2″ wide one on them both since the wider coverage makes them more aware when it does tighten..and does not run the high risks of injury associated with a CC. They are perfect for being tied up out back too. We do use prong collars for walks and crowds..but I would also Only recommend them for people who are trained in how to use them. PC are NOT meant for sustained tension and should Never be used for tying out your pups! But are a useful tool when properly used, especially on thick necked and/or stubborn pull/lunge dogs. They are meant for just a quick tension and release, or “snap” action. So that it only gets their attention, gets their brains back focused on what you are asking of them. I guess the best advice is that use of Any restraint requires research, training and practice. Each dog responds to different things..and sometimes breed also plays a Huge factor! It’s all about Everyone’s safety, including your furbaby!This video demonstrates how to properly fit and use a slip collar. I do not recommend using a slip collar on a small breed dog, if you have a small dog, go get an "Easy Walk" harness. If you have any questions at all, find a professional near you to help further. The leash walking technique in this video is mistake proof, it is a method I use for all dogs and I get results within 10-15 minutes, it teaches your dog to focus on you and watch your movements. Do not hesitate, if your dog is focused, they will not get a correction. You must turn quickly and walk in the opposite direction, if you go slow you are telling your dog you are not sure, then they will make the decision for you. I use slip chains for the "popping" sound, ( this can also be done with lots of tags on a flat collar or martingale in some dogs) and they must stay loose at all times. They are NOT to be used to "choke" your dog. Do not jerk or pop upwards with any piece of equipment on your dogs neck, this will only hurt your dog. Your dog's body does not move when you "pop" upwards, just their heads do, thus causing injury to their necks.
