"Hi Shannon -
It’s been almost a year since I first bought the collars for Indy and Bacca. I just have to tell you that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these collars. And every time I’m on my favorite Sheltie forum and someone asks about what kind of collar for Shelties, I go into the Leashes By Design mantra! I’ve posted pic’s of our collars on many occasions. These martingale collars are perfect for Shelties. They bury in the fur, sit loose without matting, and tighten when on leash so that they can’t slip their collar (Shelties are classic for that because of their small head compared to their thick ruffs).
p.s. Thinking about leashes next!
Best wishes."

A special request by the Pearl River County SPCA in Picayune, Mississippi - paracord leads with handles on both ends. This way it is quick and easy for staff members to form a head loop at either end, while still having a handle to hand on to.
