Typical Side Release Dog collars are not recommended for Greyhounds or Sighthounds because they can easily slip their collar and then they are running loose. A Martingale Dog Collar prevents this from happening by gently tightening so that it is unable to slip over the ears.
A Buckle Martingale Dog collar offers the easy on/off option of a standard dog collar with the increased functionality of the martingale loop. This option is great for very large dogs with large heads because you can take the collar on and off without readjusting it each time to fit over the head.
Because the side release buckle adds some bulk to the dog collar, this style is not recommended for smaller dogs such as Italian Greyhounds. A 1 inch wide buckle martingale collar can be made for whippets and other medium sized dogs, and if you really need a buckle martingale collar for an Italian Greyhound, I recommend either a 5/8 inch or 1 inch wide collar.
All 5/8" wide, 1" wide, and 1.5" wide 2HD collars are available with the Buckle Martingale option. You can begin shopping from the categories on the right hand side of this page (towards the top). When you find a collar design that you love, click on the image to be taken to the details page and select Buckle Martingale from the drop down "collar style" menu, choose the rest of your options, and place your order.
