The beautiful half check dog collar also called the Martingale Collar, is one of our most popular collars, and rightly so. Coming with either a brass or nickel circle chain, this collar accentuates your dog’s neck and with a colour for everyone’s taste, you will be sure to find one that you will love.
Many customers choose to match these martingale half check collars up with either a double up lead or our webbing lead. Don’t forget our 5-year guarantee and you can’t go wrong. If in doubt about measuring your dog’s neck and size choice then I’ll be happy to chat with you about it.
Correct Fitting of your half check dog collar
This collar must be fitted correctly. The size of the neck must correspond to the size of the collar with the O rings touching – the circle chain is not part of the dogs’ neck size.
Take a measuring tape and measure the dog’s neck at the point where the collar will sit.
Why a Half Check?
This collar has a particular elegance about it. With a good choice of colour, matched with the nickel or brass martingale chains, these collars will guarantee to set your dogs’ style way above that of a standard dog collar. A personal favourite of mine is the bridle leather variety of martingale collar, the black or navy with brass or the red with nickel chain.
Measuring your dog’s neck
For the martingale collar and half check collar, just measure your dog’s neck size and chose the size from the product list.
Example: Dogs neck size is 18 inches, chose 16-18 inch collar size.
Don’t worry about the chain as we just need the actual neck size to make the collar.
Keeping the chain clean
You may wash the martingale chain in soapy water but make sure they are dried thoroughly to prevent any further surface oxidisation. Should your dogs’ neck become black from the chain, then treat him to a bath.
