Due to the pandemic many agility trials are now hosted without a leash runner and handlers are allowed to carry a leash so Pat asked us to make a short leash. Just the Ticket Leash (Ticket is Pat's dog) is concealed in your hand or stuffed into a pocket. The martingale collar easily slips over your dog's head to remove and put on after your run. The leash portion measures 36” (91cm) long, the fully adjustable collar comes in 4 sizes and both are made of soft-touch tubular nylon climbing webbing. Acetal nylon buckles. A sliding plastic 'stopper" makes it quick and easy to secure the collar after sliding over your dog’s head. Scroll down for collar measuring instructions. NOTE: A properly fitted martingale collar should be comfortably loose when there is no tension on the leash. When a dog pulls, the martingale collar will tighten to the dog's actual neck with buckles either touching or slightly apart.
Measuring your Dog's Neck: To choose a collar size, measure around the thickest part of your dog’s neck behind the ears - a fabric tape measure or a string works best - or measure your dog's current collar from end to end (closed). Then select the martingale collar with the proper range of adjustment.
This leash is perfect. Admittedly I am the person who first asked Jan to make it, for my young BC Ticket :) She did a great job, and it is wonderful for training or trials, because it is strong (Tick is not entirely civilized around agility!) and yet squishes down really really small for your pocket. Nothing unnecessary, just FUNCTION :) Thank you Jan!
