Martingale collars, also called no-slip or limited-slip collars, are a type of dog collar that provides more control than a typical flat collar, and prevents dogs from backing or slipping out. They look similar to a flat collar but have a D-ring and loop is made from chain or BioThane.
The collar works by constricting when the dog pulls on the leash. Tension on the leash causes the loop to tighten, such in turn pulls the larger loop tighter – but not too tight! Martingale collars are adjustable, and should not tighten past the width of the dog’s neck. They offer comforable security without harming your dog. When pulled tight, you should have a two finger space between D-links.
Biothane is a leather alternative made of polyester webbing with a TPU or PVC coating that makes it more durable, waterproof, easy to clean and does not hold onto smell. Its easier to maintain than leather and is available in a variety of different colours.
The coating makes it easy to clean with a damp cloth and nothing will get stuck to it. So let your pup run in the mud and swim to their heart’s content knowing their Taxco products are going to stay looking and smelling like new!
