  1. Hello everyone! I'm new here and do not have a grey yet but I was curious about collars. In my research (and looking at greyhound pictures for hours on end ) I am seeing different dogs with different collars on. I think they are called a tag collar (purpose is mostly just to hold tags, correct if wrong), a martingale collar, or a harness. I have seen some dogs with a tag collar AND martingale on at the same time, also seen a tag collar and harness used. I was thinking of getting a martingale with a tag plate (similar to a boomerang tag) on it and leaving that on my grey at all times, and use a harness when necessary. What are your thoughts on each collar type? What combo do you use or suggest?
  2. Hey Folks So many Black Friday sales on Etsy! I've noticed a lot of sellers that offer martingale collars only offer the kind with the chain in the back, rather than full fabric martingales. The internet is failing me on determining if there's a real difference between the full fabric and half chain collars. I don't hate the look of the half chain as long as the fabric is wide enough, but I'm disinclined to go with it because I worry about pinching the neck skin and maybe pulling too tight. And it seems like the half chain collars are most often used as corrective collars on dobermans, bully breeds, shepherds etc. I've never seen a greyhound with the half chain, but have actually seen several other sighthounds that wear the half chain style. Thoughts?
  3. In one of the more recent threads on collars and tags, some folks mentioned that they use more than one collar. I was curious - any reason for this? Is one just for tags and the other for training or is it a safety concern? I grew up with whippets and they often went naked when indoors, but their tags were on their martingale collar. My current dog has a martingale with tags that she wears all the time. If it's a safety thing, I might end up getting a second collar, LOL!!
  4. I'm looking to purchase a couple tagless collars for our 2 Grey Girls. I'm wanting to find a lightweight, durable collar where the i.d. info would be easily readable. I've searched the internet & there are SO many of them available! If it is the type that has a metal engraved tag attached to the collar, I would want stainless steel rivets, etc that wouldn't rust, etc. But I do want them to be lightweight, as our Girls are usually "naked" unless we are taking them out of the house for a walk or ride. We have martingale collars with their tags attached when we take them for walks or rides, but we don't like all the noisy tag rattling in the house. Anyone have some good recommendations & experiences with any particular ones? Thanks in advance for your responses!
  5. Hello All While walking our girls recently, someone stopped to admire them ( happens often ) but dropped this little nugget before moving on: martingale collars can cause throat cancer in greyhounds who sometimes pull from their neck. We have a harness and used it on our big boy Lander, before he passed. If there is any truth to this at all we will purchase another and Put Frannie and Chloe in them to walk. They are good walkers about 75% of the time but you know how it is, sometimes we're just out of our minds with excitement and act a bit crazy...... Has anyone ever heard of this cancer issue?
  6. So I'm starting a business making Martingales(I will be making more things but this is what I'm starting with). I'm in the making and testing products part at the moment! haha I would LOVE some tips and tricks from people who make them! I also have a few specific questions.. haha So I use satin Ribbon for the backing on the 2" and 1 1/2" but not sure how to make a 1" look nice without it. Since I can seem to find nice 1" Satin ribbon for cheap, in bulk, online. How do you guys make it look nice without ribbon?(be very specific, pictures would be WONDERFUL!) What interfacing have you found that works best? is it fusible? any tips on sewing the martingale part of the collar(where the leash attaches) without it being so awkward? Any other tips you might be able to give me is highly appreciated!

Get yours before May 31st to DOUBLE the donation!
  12. We were at GEM last weekend and ordered a new collar from Robin Willoughby (Collar of the Month Club). It came last night! I love it because it reminds me of an Arts and Crafts-era wallpaper border. And I already have a light purple velvet leash from Nancy B that matches perfectly.
