If you’re unfamiliar with the Martingale collar, it’s a special type of dog collar that offers owners more control of their pet, without the choking effect that is characteristic of the infamous choke collar. Unlike the traditional dog collar, the design of the Martingale helps to prevent a dog from being able to slip their heads out―making it an attractive option for many dog owners, especially those with sighthounds (as their necks are typically larger than their heads).

As with any popular product, there’s bound to be a gazillion different options out there in terms of brand―so which one should you use? Lucky for you, we’ve done the research for you so that you don’t have to!
Add to that our own personal experiences with collar-shopping (and trust me, we have high standards), and you’ve got a list of some of the best Martingale collars out there in the market! Without further ado, let’s take a look at our list of top five Martingale collars!
Made by Lupine Pet, one of our personal favourite dog product companies (you’ll see why later), these Martingale collars are made of a sturdy, nylon material that is hard to destroy even for the toughest of chewers.
Available in a number of nifty patterns, there are four sizes to choose from―small (10″-14″), medium (14″- 20″), large (15″-22″) and extra-large (19″-27″).
One thing that sets Lupine apart from the rest is their fabulous product guarantee; if at any time, your pet chews through and dismantles the collar, they offer you a free replacement. All you have to do is send a picture of said collar (with the damage visible) to Lupine via their Return Form, and you’ll get a another collar in the mail for absolutely no charge (we’ve gotten a replacement this way ourselves)!
We’ve bought so many RC Pets Martingale Collars for our dog over the years―not because they fell apart, but because we fell in love with so many of their glamorous patterns!
If you’re looking for one of the trendiest Martingale collars out there, this is it. Just looking at their catalogue now, they have close to 50 styles to choose from (not counting the retired designs). For those who prefer classic colours, that’s an option as well!
On top of their wide range of designs, they’re also very solidly built. Featuring a reflective logo on the side of the collar, it does a great job at increasing the visibility of your dog to drivers and other individuals nearby during your night time walks.
The RC Pets Martingale collar comes in four sizes―small (7″-9″), medium (9-14″), large (14″-20″) and extra large (18-26″).
If you want something simple that does the job, consider the Gogo Pets Martingale collar. Created from a soft, yet durable webbed material, this specially crafted collar also features a plastic, quick release buckle―which allows for easier on and offs! No more struggling with trying to pull the collar over your dog’s head!
Offered in seven different solid colors (e.g. red, green, blue, purple, orange, pink, black), the Gogo Pets Martingale Collar also comes with a lifetime guarantee (much like Lupine)―that’s how confident they are in the quality of their products! Available in four sizes: extra-small (10″-12″), small (14″-17″), medium (16″-21″) and large (20.5″-27.5″).
We’re a big fan of this company―in fact, our dog’s first quality harness (which he quickly outgrew) was made by Ezydog. So it’s really no surprise that we’re also big advocates for their collars.
Right off the bat, it’s hard to miss the bright, reflective logo towards the front of the collar; it pretty much glows when hit with light. On top of that, the fabric also contains reflective stitching in itself, which helps to make your pet even more visible in low light conditions. Known for its lower profile fit, the Ezydog Checkmate Martingale Collar is perfect for dogs of all ages, including young puppies.
It comes in four sizes: small (10″-13″), medium (13″-18″), large (17″-26″) and extra-large (22″-33″) and is available in six different eye-catching colors.
Made out of a strong, yet lightweight material, the Red Ringo Martingale is the perfect choice for those who are looking for a simple, trendy collar. Complete with a reflective, scratch-resistant ribbon, this collar is also fully adjustable (with small, black clasps) to allow for the perfect fit. A quality product, all seams are also sewn (not welded!) for maximum durability.
Available in four different sizes across a large range of classic colors and patterns, this dog collar is truly the perfect blend of style and simplicity!
Comes in a variety of sizes including: small (8.3″-13″), medium (9.8″-15.4″), large (12.6″-18.5″) and extra-large (16.1″-24.4″).
