What are the recommended dog breeds and benefits of using martingale collars?
Thank you for always using the Brott Barcelona Japan official online store.
Ladies and gentlemen, do you know the martingale collar?
A Martingale collar is a type of collar that does not put a strain on your dog's neck because it is structured so that the collar does not tighten completely when the dog pulls the owner.
Because it is thicker than a normal collar, the design is easy to emphasize and fashionable, which is why many owners choose it .
Brott martingale collars are particularly wide.
This time, we will introduce you to the dog breeds you want to recommend and the merits of using martingale .
By all means, please choose a collar suitable for your dog based on the merits of martingale ♪
Advantages of martingale collar
・No strain on the neck
Common half chokes and thin collars place a local burden on the neck when your dog pulls it, but the Martingale collar is thick, so it has the advantage of not putting a local burden on the neck .
If a localized strain is applied, not only will your dog be in pain and pity, but it will also affect the trachea, so we recommend using a thick collar like a martingale instead of a thin collar.
・Useful for escape prevention
"My dog ran away and went missing." I often hear such stories and see them on SNS, but losing a pet dog is the most dangerous thing when considering the risk of an accident.
The moderate chalk shape of the martingale makes it difficult to fall off your dog's neck, and since there is no clasp in the first place, you don't have to worry about it falling off.
Also, in the case of a smart dog, it may back up and try to pull the head out of the collar, but since the martingale is thick, it is unlikely that it will come out of the dog's neck if the size is properly adjusted.
・Easy to put on and take off
The martingale collar is easy to put on and take off, so it's a great feature for owners. Taking a walk is something you do every day, so you don't want it to be a little troublesome. It's a big advantage that you can easily put it on and take it off because it's something you use every day.
・ Effective for training dogs with a tendency to pull
The martingale collar holds just the right amount of chalk, so it's a little tighter when your dog pulls on it. Since it is thick, it is also an advantage that you can train your dog's pulling habit without putting a local burden on it.
Medium-sized and large-sized dogs tend to be strong, so even if your dog pulls them a little, the owner may fall over, so I'd like to use it as a training for walking!
Dog breeds that recommend martingale collars
・Long-necked or thin-necked dogs
Martingale collars are especially recommended for dog breeds that tend to put strain on the neck (dog breeds with long necks). Borzoi, Italian Greyhound, Saluki, Whippet, and other dog breeds that tend to put strain on the neck, regardless of whether they are small or large, should be used.
Also, many of the dog breeds with long necks basically have small faces, and a regular collar is very easy to pull out of the neck. The martingale collar is moderately tight and has a wide width, so you can reduce the anxiety that you are afraid that the collar will come off your neck.
・Strong large dog
A strong and large dog tends to put a strain on the neck when pulled, so we recommend a martingale collar that does not place a burden on the local area . Powerful dog breeds such as Dobermans, Great Dane, Irish Wolfhounds, and Rottweilers are good to try once.
In addition, the martingale has a choke shape that tightens the collar appropriately, so I would like to use it for training the pulling habit of a strong large dog!
・Dog breeds with a habit of running away
Martingale is thick and can be freely adjusted to the size of your dog's neck, so it is recommended for dog breeds that tend to run away , such as Japanese dogs such as Shiba Inu, and dogs that back up and pull the collar out of the neck. .
Protecting your dog from accidents is also a major role of the owner, so if your dog has a tendency to run away, take proper measures regardless of the martingale.
・Small dogs prone to tracheal collapse
For small dogs with a weak trachea, a martingale is recommended because it does not place a local burden on the trachea.
Toy dog breeds (maltese, toy poodle, Yorkshire terrier, etc.) are particularly prone to tracheal collapse, which is a collapsed trachea. is recommended.
・Old dogs prone to chronic bronchitis
Older dogs are more likely to develop tracheal collapse, which is common in small dogs, and the risk of developing chronic bronchitis increases.
As with small dogs, we recommend using a martingale-like collar or harness to reduce the burden on the trachea.
・Long-haired dog breeds
In the case of dogs with long coats, regular collars hide their cute design with hair, but a thick collar like a Martingale emphasizes the design and is fashionable!
You can also enjoy walking in matching outfits with different colors♪
Martingale not only has many benefits for your dog, but you can also enjoy the design.
martingale collar weight
Although there are some differences depending on the design, the following is the weight by size of the martingale color.
MGP: about 100g (suitable for small dogs)
MGW: about 110g (suitable for medium-sized dogs)
MGG: about 150g (suitable for large dogs)
The aluminum buckle and fabric are well sewn, and overall it is a little heavier than a typical collar.
This time, a dog health advisor introduced the dog breeds that I would like to recommend martingale and the effect of martingale.
Consider using a Martingale collar for dogs with long necks, large dogs that pull hard, small dogs that are prone to trachea problems, old dogs, and dogs that tend to run away.
It is absolutely necessary to avoid running away and losing your dog, but a thick martingale is recommended to reduce the local burden on your dog's neck .
