The Eclectic Hound Martingale Review & Giveaway // Ammo the Dachshund

My new friends over at The Eclectic Hound sent me over this adorable martingale collar to take for a spin.

Now Martingale Collars are all the rage right now, but did you know that they were originally designed for sight hounds, such as greyhounds and whippets, whose heads are smaller than their necks and can easily slip out of traditional buckle collars.

The same can be true for Dachshunds and more and more trainers recently have been recommending them for dogs of all breeds and sizes because of their safety.

Designed to slip over your dog’s head, this collar from the Eclectic Hound should then be adjusted so you can fit 1 -2 fingers between the collar and your dog’s neck.

The martingale loop, which functions by gently tightening around the dog’s neck when pressure is applied to the leash, makes it so your dog can’t back out of the collar.

The Eclectic Hound Shop has so many fun collar designs it can be hard to decide which one to get (or get them all!), but ultimately I chose this preppy alligator design, because I’m pretty sure it makes me look extra tough. Or preppy I guess depending on how you look at it!

    I like the Lagoon, Alligator, and Kaleidoscope designs and they would look great on my black & tan!

  2. JB07-28-14

    Yes, Ammo, you definitely look preppy in your new collar. As for tough… sorry sweetie, you’re just way too cute and precious to look tough. Just embrace it. Besides, cute will always get you more cookies than tough. 🙂

  3. Donna07-28-14

    Ammo, these collars are great. And you look very handsome in your alligator one. I have to get one for my dachshund, Heidi.

  4. Lara Elizabeth07-28-14

  6. Alana07-28-14

    I would totally get the “You Are My Sunshine” Collar since that song is very special and close to my heart and I know my father would love it. I would probably purchase along with it the “Quick Brown Fox” Collar since our collie resembles a fox very we’ll.

  7. Ashley R07-28-14

    I love the little monsters and the alligators! How cute!

  8. Brittany B07-28-14

    Beau would love the bow tie or argyle! Alligators are pretty cute too 🙂

  16. Melissa07-29-14

    So hard to decide, but I really like the “little monsters” print.


  17. Kelli S07-29-14

    What cool collars! Aside from Diggory’s leather collar, he only wears martingales. I was introduced to them at the CCSPCA, since that’s what the shelter dogs wear when they go out, and haven’t turned back since! I love the built-in safety feature. Out of the Eclectic Hound’s shop, I’m currently favoring the “Singing Butler,” “The Snail Brigade,” and the “Geo Giraffe!” How fun!

  18. Ashley Rogers07-30-14

    Rex would love the alligator design !!

  19. Fran07-30-14
