Description

Choose-a-Fabric Adjustable Martingale Dog Collar.

** Note certain size are only available in some widths - if you are unable to click the add to cart button, try choosing a different width.

Martingale collars are great for dogs who "back out" of their collars, or dogs who have large necks compared to their heads. They are safe for use on walks and around the house, but are not recommended for tie-outs*. Quick release martingales are the best of both worlds - the ease-of-use of a flat buckle collar and the safety and security of a martingale! If you have any questions about the fit or function of martingales, or any of my collars, feel free to send us a message.

Choosing a Fabric

** Note: the collars shown in the photos on this page are construction examples only. Some or all of these fabrics may be sold out. Please choose your fabric print from our current available prints as explained below

Choose your fabric choice(s) using the three "FABRIC CHOICES" photos. Type the names in the Fabric choices boxes. Thumbnail pictures are NOT to scale - to get a sense of how the fabric looks on a collar, use the search bar in our shop to search for the fabric name. Not all of our fabrics can be found this way, but most will be. ⚠️ Please include 1st and 2nd fabric choices in case of low quantities. Fabric prints may sell out without notice.

We also have PRINTED WEBBING options now! Printed webbing is polyester (not fabric) and is smooth and soft to the touch. Be sure to verify the width you need is available in the printed webbing of your choice.

 


All Roka Pet Wear items have a lightweight (but STRONG) 2000lb-rated webbing core and triple reinforced seams. Each item includes premium nickel plated steel hardware.

Martingale Loop Options

Martingales are available with fully-fabric-covered loops OR a heavy webbing loop with fabric on the outside only. Martingale loops tend to show wear from friction faster than regular flat collars due to the movement of the loop through the hardware, so having the heavy webbing on the inside, rather than fabric, helps alleviate that and keeps the loop looking nicer longer. We will choose a coordinating color of webbing for you. If you have a special request, email us about it!

Size & Width
Measure your dog's neck or collar per the photo. Choose appropriate size range & width. Due to the added hardware, this type collar has very limited adjustment ranges - be sure to measure a current collar to assure proper sizing. **Listed size ranges may vary up to 1/2".

If your dog falls between sizes OR is a growing puppy, please measure their neck or a current collar and include your measurement with your order. We will custom-size your collar, free of charge. Custom-sized collars will be adjustable in either direction, or in the case of a puppy, will only adjust upwards to allow the most room for growth.

Add-On Options

Add a mini tag ring to hang tags without affecting the adjustable range. NOT to be used for leash attachment.

 Add an additional D-ring for hanging tags - this is a full-size D-ring sewn in at the adjustment slide.

  • Less than 15 characters per line is STRONGLY recommended.

              • Thin, basic fonts work best with long lines of text on small buckles. Avoid choosing blocky, bold, or script fonts if you need a lot of information on your buckle.
              • Script fonts are not recommended on 5/8" buckles with more than 2 lines of text for legibility reasons.
              • Text is hand-formatted for every item - engraved items on separate orders/placed at different times may differ from one another.
              • These are our professional recommendations - ultimately we will engrave what you type in the note box, so please be sure to CHECK YOUR SPELLING and avoid writing a novel :)
              • There will be *no refunds or exchanges* on engraved items. All sales are final on personalized items. You may request up to 2 digital proofs for no extra charge. Please include a message in the note box at checkout, or send us an email when you place your order. Proofs will not be sent unless requested. Customer MUST approve the proof before we will proceed with the order. Proofs are not available on any Boomerang tags.
              • We reserve the right to make small changes to your text for balance and legibility reasons. If we need to change anything drastically, we will send you a message first. Please be sure to check your email (and spam folder) for messages from us.

              no laser engraving

              Our buckles and tags are engraved with a diamond-tipped CNC machine, never a laser! Laser engraving is used by nearly all other collar companies - lasers are inexpensive but only burn the top surface coating of buckles. This etching often wears off the buckle in a short time. Our engraver physically removes metal and surface coating to provide a longer-lasting, professional engraving when compared to laser-etched products.

              While our engraving process is vastly superior to most "laser etched" products on the market, care should still be taken to protect your items, in particular aluminum buckles and tags. Aluminum is strong and lightweight, which makes it ideal for pet collars, but it is a softer metal so it can be damaged by repeated contact with materials harder than itself (concrete, tile, other metals, etc).

              The easiest way to do this is to avoid hanging metal objects near your buckle! Hanging tags, lights, and other gizmos that swing or rub against engraved buckles will inevitably cause premature wear and tear. Instead, fasten these items at the adjustment slide or a mini tag ring so they cannot make contact with your buckle. Similarly, if you wash your engraved item, protect it by placing it inside a garment bag or a sock so it doesn't get beat up in the washer/dryer.

               

              Size charts

              Each collar type has its own size chart. Our sizes are unique to our brand. size chartThis chart is meant to be a guide only. Refer to the product descriptions and size charts for the most accurate sizing details. Actual size ranges may vary by up to 1". Please measure your pet prior to ordering and utilize our FREE custom sizing to ensure the best fit and avoid the hassle of returns.

              Width Guidelines

              A very flexible rule of thumb for choosing width:

              • 3/8" for toy breeds, under 10 lbs
              • 5/8" for small breeds, 10-30 lbs
              • 3/4" for medium breeds, 20-50 lbs
              • 1" for large breeds, 40-100 lbs
              • 1.5" for giant breeds, 100+ lbs

              Sizing

              Sizing Inconsistencies: We are in the process of modifying all of our collar size ranges and size labels (S, M, L) to be more congruent across styles. You may see inconsistencies between our size chart, descriptions, and available selections while we do this. If in doubt, choose the appropriate length shown (8-13, 14-22, etc) regardless of size label (S, M, L, etc). 

              As always, Fox Valley Pet Wear will custom-size your gear to fit your pet for no extra charge! All you need to do is provide measurements with your order.**

              ** if your measurement and request-details align with one of our standard sizes, we may provide the standard size. We will use our professional opinion or reach out to you with questions.

              One more thing about custom sizing...

              Keep in mind we cannot add range to one end without sacrificing range from the other. Expect roughly 3" of range for small sizes, 5" for medium sizes, 7" for large sizes, and so on.
