Our strong education in art and interior design, coupled with access to a vast array of materials, enable us to make delightful textile combinations to create beautiful, decorative and truly unique collars for your beloved canine friends.

Regal Hound Collars are designed around a high-tensile strength poly-pro base webbing. Flannel and crepe-backed satins, including soft cotton and blends, are used to wrap all of our Martingale and buckle collars.

The satins are available in a variety of colors. If you would like to exchange one lining for another, just let us know by adding the information into the Comments field during checkout.

Our Martingale and Buckle Collars are sewn with thread imported from Germany. This high-quality thread provides strength and non-fading qualities. All stress points are triple and quadruple stitched.

The hardware Regal Hound™ uses is of the finest quality. Solid brass, or cast-welded "D" rings and slides give our collars the strength, durability and beauty our customers appreciate.

What is a Martingale Collar?

Martingale Collars - aka Human Choke Collars, Training Collars or Greyhound Collars - were originally designed for Sighthounds (ie. Greyhounds, Whippets, Galgos, IGs, etc.), whose necks are larger than their heads allowing them to easily slip or back out of traditional buckle and side-release dog collars.

Martingale collars have a two-loop design. They are slipped directly over your dog's head and the leash is attached to the D-ring on the smaller loop which is engineered to tighten down the larger loop when more control is needed. This humane squeezing down, non-gagging characteristic, is helpful when walking your dog - especially for those Squirrel! moments.

Dog trainers often recommend the Martingale collar to their clients for the added benefit of control it provides as a training collar for all dog breeds, including: Boxers, Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, Terriers, Beagles, Spaniels, Bully Breeds, mutts and everything in between.
