All Forsyth And Tedd collars are made upon a sturdy webbing core.
Some of the fabric, like the tweed wool will shrink if put in a washing machine so I only advise spot washing. I do understand that sometimes that is never enough so if you do need to wash it in the machine use a laundry bag on put on a wool wash, dry flat.
Martingale collars are primarily used for sighthounds because they have very narrow heads and easily pull out backwards from a normal collar. A Martingale will tighten but not choke behind the ears , preventing the collar from coming over the head. The wider 2 inch collar also protects the sensitive throat.
PLEASE NOTE: A martingale collar does not have a buckle or clasp, it slides over the head and you tighten it using the adjustable strap. This collar is not suitable for all breeds. If you are unsure, please contact us before you buy.
Ideally you want your neck measurement to be in the middle, if you are near the top measurement, I suggest going to the next size up.
Large 16-20 inches
The hardware choices are brass in 2inch width or 1.5inch width. Silver chrome on nickel at 2inch or 1.5 or black powder coated metal 1.5 inch.
If you would like the small loop on your martingale sewn flat to use as just an adjustable collar then please put a note on your order.
Please note that each collar is handmade therefore the pattern placement for fabric will vary on every collar.
