Thankfully, RC Pet makes it a point of duty to make products that are of good quality. This is why we have a certain level of confidence in the RC Pet Products Martingale Dog Collar.
The RC Pet Products Martingale Dog Collar is a martingale which makes it a training collar (more on dog training collars here. Click here to read it). Our review explores every reason to or not to get this collar for your pooch.
Can Any Dog Wear The RC Pet Products Martingale Dog Collar?
Yes, absolutely. The RC Pet Products Martingale Collar comes in a range of sizes, and so you should be able to find something that fits your pooch. Also, the collar is adjustable. So, even if it doesn’t fit your dog properly, you can make it work.
Plus, it is made of a nice material that shouldn’t cause any untoward reaction too.
Features Of The RC Pet Products Martingale Dog Collar
The RC Pet Products Dog Collar being a martingale collar has two sections, and both are made from tough nylon material. And this is important because we know that training collars like martingales, tend to suffer a lot of pulling, hence the need for a sturdy material.
Aside from this, the collar is washable. Plus, on the collar is a small label of the company logo which is reflective. So you can see a beacon of light if he ever gets lost.
OK, one more thing. There are a lot of design options with this collar, a lot. There is pitter-patter pink, vogue, tan tarter, calypso and numerous other options. We are looking at more than 20 options here!
2. D Ring And Tri Glide
This collar has 3 rings. However, you only attach a leash to the D ring. The other rings are used to attach the main collar to the loop. So, please don’t attach a leash to those rings.
The D Ring is made of durable metal and should be fine through water and even snow. Remember that you will have to wash this collar at some point. So it only makes sense that the metalware is safe in water.
Thankfully, it is actually stitched into folds of the material. So we can say that pulling on it will not cause it to come off unexpectedly.
The tri-glide, on the other hand, is made of plastic. It isn’t difficult to adjust as it slides easily enough. However, when getting a collar for your dog, you want to remember that the loop is actually more important in determining the size than the tri-glide.
The reason is, the collar is meant to contract and it is the loop that is responsible for that. So, the right collar for your dog should fit right when the loop is relaxed. Also, it should be tight enough to serve as a deterrent and not choke when the loop is constricted.
So the tri-glide is very important but in determining size, you should be more concerned about the loop.
One more thing, the RC Pet Products Martingale Collar doesn’t have a buckle. So you’d have to fit the collar in such a way that it passes through your dog’s head. You can readjust it when it passes through, if your dog’s head is significantly larger than his neck.
Is The RC Pet Products Martingale Dog Collar User-Friendly?
It pretty much is. All that needs to be done is fit the collar right. If you try and don’t get it right, just ask anybody in the dog community. But you should be able to figure it out on your own.
We would really like for your veterinarian or dog trainer to give consent before you decide to use it seeing as it is a training collar. Or at the very least, they should be aware. Just to be on the safe side.

Alternative Options To The RC Pet Products Martingale Dog Collar
Here are some options you could consider if you are not really feeling our featured collar for today:
More Affordable Option
There are two things that make the Max And Neo Martingale Collar different from our featured product. One, the small loop is made of stainless steel and not the same nylon material.
We actually think that stainless steel slides along better than nylon. Making this collar better at constricting and retracting.
Two, it has a buckle so you can fit the collar to your dog’s proper size and your dog can wear it that way. Did we mention that it is a more affordable option?
Option With Buckle
PetSafe Quick Snap Martingale Collar
This one is kinda the same as our featured product. Both the main collar and the loop are made of the same material; nylon.
However, this one has a metal tri-glide instead of a plastic one and also a plastic buckle. So if you like the idea of our featured collar but would rather a collar with buckle, this is the collar for you.
This one is completely made of stainless steel. It is pretty strong and durable so we kinda understand why some people would prefer this.
