This is a custom made martingale in a jade green peacock feather silk brocade. We can also make you a matching leash if you are interested. Please see the "matching leash" section in our shop or contact us for a custom listing!
* Please note that we can always make you a custom sized collar based on your dog's neck measurement. If you would like a custom size just include a measurement in the notes at checkout.
We make our collars from the same materials that we would feel comfortable having against our own skin all day, every day. The nylon webbing used in most collars is stiff, doesn't breathe well and retains odors; not exactly something that we’d want to wear ourselves! As an alternative to nylon, we back all of our collars with heavy-weight cotton denim that we dye to match our decorative fabrics. Just like a pair of Carharts© or Dickies© work pants, the denim we use is strong and holds up well to regular abuse but is also soft, breathable and flexible.
Stress points are triple stitched to make sure the collar holds fast, we use high-quality cast or welded metal hardware and our plastic buckles are industry-standard and extremely strong. However, just as you probably wouldn't wear a handsome tailored blazer or a designer dress to play ultimate frisbee, we discourage our silk collars at the dog park or the beach - after all, these are formal-wear!
Martingale dog collars are made using two loops, to give a humane "squeeze" when the dog pulls on the leash. It prevents the dog from slipping backwards out of the collar.
This is a must for breeds like greyhounds and whippets, whose heads are smaller than their necks. They also work very well for any dog who is working on becoming an escape artist! Our shiba inu has worn one all of his life and we swear by it.
And lastly, our disclaimer:
Collar safety is YOUR responsibility! Please inspect your collar regularly for any wear and tear that might compromise it's strength or safety.
