The EzyDog martingale design provides more control over your dog without the risk of choking effects much like competitor . These adjustable dog collars are extensively used in dog training and also used to help keep your dog's head from slipping out of the collar during walks or when the dog gets overly excited. The EzyDog Checkmate martingale (control) collar is made with two loops. The larger loop is slipped onto the dogs neck and a leash is then clipped to the smaller loop. When the dog tries to pull, the tension on the leash pulls the small loop taut, which makes the large loop smaller and tighter on the neck, thus helping to prevent escape. When the Checkmate Collar is properly fitted, it will be comfortably loose without your dog noticing it much until the dog begins to pull.

While the most common choker in the 90’s was the tattoo choker and therefore was very simple, now chokers are becoming more creative. From suede ribbon wrapped around the neck in a bow, to bejeweled lace; from thick bands of fabric that resemble a dog collar, to delicate leather ribbon, chokers now encompass all styles of fashion. The choker no longer belongs to the grunge girl with flannels and baggy ripped jeans. It belongs to the hipster and the prepster; to the girly girl, the goth and the androgynous alike. Chokers made an appearance all over the runways this season, including in Oscar de la Renta Fall/Winter 2016-2017, Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2016-2017, Dior Spring/Summer 2016, and Balmain Spring/ Summer 2016. With the change in season comes a new fall wardrobe so try adding the choker to your closet. Here are some examples to start you off on the choker style:When I first started training dogs, some 30 years ago, choke or prong collars were the only way we had to manage dogs and train them to walk on leash without pulling. Today, many guardians and dog professionals still rely on these devices to control their dog. Their use however has now become the subject of much controversy between their advocates and those who see them as instruments of torture that should simply be banned from the market. Many consider that, when applied according to certain guidelines, they are acceptable and essential training tools for good compliance. Let’s not forget however that far from benign, these devices are designed to punish by choking or hurting the dog. The principle is quite simple in theory, not so much in practice though. Whenever the dog gets out of position, the handler promptly delivers a leash jerk, also referred to as a leash pop or leash correction: a sharp tightening followed by an immediate release of the collar. Over many repetitions and trial and error, the dog learns how to avoid the correction and where to walk to stay comfortable.Since dogs aren’t allowed to walk around the world freely, our canines are required to wear some kind of equipment that we can hook the leash to. For many guardians, taking a walk with their dog is often quite challenging due to this very unnatural demand. Without proper training, dogs are likely to pull their guardian around during the entire walk. With smaller dogs, pulling is somewhat manageable since our weight and strength far exceeds their own, although even small dogs can sometimes pull surprisingly hard! With medium to large dogs, some guardians give up on walking them altogether. After all, why subject our self to such a stressful experience? As intelligent and creative creatures as we are, over millenniums of living with dogs, we’ve come up with an assortment of devices intended to stop the pulling and gain more control. From regular flat collars, to choke collars, prong collars, head halters and harnesses, we now have many choices. But these choices are not all equal in their efficiency or on their effect on the dog.So how about prong collars (also referred to as pinch collars)? This type of device works with the same principle as the choke chain, but due to its design, prong collars do not require as much strength to be effective and the force is spread out across all of its prongs. So in many ways, the prong collar doesn’t produce as much pressure on the dog’s neck than the choke chain, or even the flat collar. For the beginner handler, they can provide a sense of immediate control as the dog will self-correct. In other words, when the dog pulls, it hurts! Even without the need for the handler to jerk the leash. These devices still offer better results with a quick, although lighter leash correction and release than choke chains. Otherwise the dog is more likely to get desensitized to the feeling on their neck. Prong collars also present a list of problems. Even if they don’t require as much jerking to be effective, they still rely on the restriction of the dog’s neck. Again, choking, in any way, can result in soft tissue damage, eye problems, tracheal/esophageal problems and neurological problems that can sometimes lead to death. Not to mention potential skin injuries from the prongs themselves.
