Mighty Paw martingale dog collar review

My thoughts on the martingale collar

I like martingale collars in general. Most dogs can wear one as an everyday collar, and they also work as a training collar for dogs who need a gentle reminder not to pull.

A martingale collar will tighten slightly under tension but not enough where it could choke the dog. It’s also called a limited slip collar.

If your dog pulls or if you prefer to lightly tug on the leash to get your dog’s attention, the collar will tighten a bit. When the tension eases, the collar will loosen again. For this reason, a martingale collar is a good safety collar for dogs who know how to slip out of or back out of a regular collar.

A martingale collar has one loop that goes around the dog’s neck and a second loop used to tighten the collar under tension.

Mighty Paw’s version is made of nylon and iron and also has a buckle so you don’t necessarily have to slide it on and off your dog’s head. When you have a wiggly weimaraner, it’s nearly impossible to slide something over his head!

Ordering information – Amazon

The martingale collar is available on Amazon HERE.

It comes in black or gray and three sizes. Small: 12″ to 14″ neck (.75″ wide), Medium: 14″ to 17″ neck (1″ wide) or Large: 17″ to 22″ neck (1″ wide).

What’s unique about this martingale collar?

Mighty Paw’s martingale collar is very durable and functionable, and it looks great too.

It’s made with weather-proof nylon, according to the company. The chain portion is made of 100% iron. I like the chain “sound” because my dogs pay attention when they hear the sound of the chain.

The collar features a D-ring option on the side so you can choose to clip the leash there and use it as a standard collar. Plus, the collar has reflective stitching for safety as the sun is rising or falling.

Pros:

  • High quality and durable!
  • All around really nice product
  • Made with weather-proof nylon and 100% iron chain
  • Doubles as a standard collar with a D-ring
  • Reflective stitching
  • Looks great!
  • A nice “middle ground” collar. It gives you more control w/o using a prong or choke collar

Cons:

  • Some people would prefer no chain (I like the chain, personally)
  • Not available for dogs with neck size roughly under 12″ or over 22″
  • Not a lot of color options (comes in black or gray)
  • A martingale collar may not give enough control over a strong “puller”

Would I buy this collar?

Yes. These are high-quality, functionable collars. It’s the perfect training collar for my gentle Lab mix who needs a soft reminder to pay attention. It makes a great everyday collar for my weimaraner and hopefully someday it’s all he’ll need for training!

Would I recommend the collar to others?

Yes. I recommend a Mighty Paw martingale collar to anyone who needs a little extra control when walking their dog. For some dogs, a prong collar or a Gentle Leader is not necessary. A martingale is a good “middle ground” used by a huge variety of dog trainers.

By the way, if you’re looking for a regular buckle collar (vs. a martingale), the company also has a really nice one HERE.

  1. Yes I would love to have one. I am a grandmother with my granddaughters pit/boxer. Actually I have granddaughter s living with me. Anyways I have fallen in love with the Pit/boxer and we walk anywhere from 2 to 4 miles everyday. Still he is full of it but he is young. Thank you

      Hi Barbara, I’ve known a few dogs we guessed were pit/boxer mixes and they were great walking/running partners. To get the collar, you just have to sign up for the $7 reward or higher on That Mutt’s Patreon page. Here is the link: https://www.patreon.com/ThatMutt

  2. After Linus slipped his flat collar a few years ago to chase a coyote across the golf course we started using the martingale collar for safety reasons. We have about a half dozen martingales at home, but we don’t have a Mighty Paw! I just signed up for the $7 reward and can’t wait for our monthly reward!

  3. Sure, I could use one for my dog. He’s a small size Xoloitzquintli, but pulls like a Great Dane. This might slow him down a bit.

  4. Think this is exactly what I need for my boy, Zander. He is almost two and walks well some of the time; but for the times he decides to pull (rabbit) a quick correction that a Martingale offers, sounds like the best way to keep training him. Plus, either black or gray will match his beautiful coat.

      Hopefully it will help. It definitely gives more control. Let me know if you have any questions on how to sign up on Patreon.

  5. I signed up for your $7 reward and can’t wait to get ours! So far, I only have a Martingale collar without a chain. I’m looking forward to trying the chain alternative on this one.

    1. Lindsay Stordahl

      I think the chain gives more control than the ones that are just nylon. I’m curious to hear what you think.

  6. I am looking forward to trying out this collar on Sophie when ours arrives. As you know, I always use a Gentle Leader on Sophie when going out for walks, but I’m thinking it might be good to mix it up a little once in a while, so we’ll give this collar a try. We shall see what happens. Thank you for the review.

    my girls dont really need this, b/c i use harnesses on them b/c they are small, but it would be nice b/c i am doing dog gift baskets for safe haven for cats to auction off at their annual big ball, the Tuxedo Ball, where they raise a lot of money to save cats, have a pet food bank for both dogs and cats, and a low cost clinic for both cats and small dogs. many of the things that i have won but cant use, i am donating. i must say that i won the mighty paw collar and sports bungee leash and i love it. i love that the collar has cushioning and the leash is long enough that i can run with the girls, i can even run 2 leashes together with it or just put it around my waist. it is one of the nicest leash and collar sets i have seen.

  8. Wow Lindsay the collar is so cool.It looks good,well made and Emma Lou looks bad-ass wearing it.She`s wearing it right now with her LED hot pink collar(night time)too.I like the chain part of the collar.I`m putting her tags on the Martingale collar cause this is now her everyday-go to collar.Thanks a bunch
    Keith & Emma Lou….
