As with shopping for fabric for any purpose, such as your own clothing or home decorating, you will find that fabric changes with the trends more than other materials. Fortunately fabric is an affordable way to collar your dog, so you can avail yourself of new looks every season. Fabric dog collars are often produced by manufacturers with experience in the fashion and textile industries. Many vendors set up shop in the fashion districts of New York, San Francisco, and other fashion-forward cities in order to ride the wave of trends just as they start to surface. This not only provides the collar designers with the style savvy to choose fabrics that sell, but gives them access to the high end materials and sought after patterns of the season. When buying fabric for your dog, read the designer's bio page to see where they picked up their fabric knowledge, and find out if they mass manufacture or hand make their products.
Martingale Dog Collars, Limited Slip Safety Collars, USA Made
Custom Buckle Martingale Collar with Chain Loop, Decorative Fabric.
Buckle collars are made of leather, cloth, nylon and other materials. Choose a collar for sturdiness and comfort over looks. The collar should be adjusted tight enough so that it cannot slip off the dog's head; it should be just loose enough to allow you to slip two fingers between the collar and the dog's neck.We would like to caution you about using a buckle collar on a Shar?Pei. We highly recommend that you use a choke chain or choke collar made of cloth when you are taking them outside on a leash. The reason for this is because a buckle collar can come right off the dog's head if they decide to lunge for something, and you are left holding the leash and collar but not the dog. And almost any Shar?Pei that is not on a leash will run from you. Especially a dog that is new to your home. They will run and ran fast. From lots of years of experience, we can tell you that they are almost impossible to catch when they are running loose.* Training collars. These include metal chain collars, choker collars, braided or rolled nylon slip collars, and cloth slip collars. A key benefit of this type of collar is that it self-adjusts, when used with a leash, around the dog's neck, giving the handler control and preventing the dog from slipping out of the collar.We have a word of caution about using a buckle collar on a Shar-Pei.

From years of experience, we can tell you that they are almost impossible to catch when they are running loose. If this happens be ready with a plan. Practice calling your dog in your fenced backyard, or in some other similarly protected area, to see what entices him to come to you. Lying down and acting as if you are injured, has been known to work. Also, running in an opposite direction may seem like a game and he may then chase after you. We must warn you not to chase after the dog. He will think that is a game you are playing, and run away from you even faster, making it impossible to catch him. Having practiced previously, perhaps with a treat, establishes a pattern of recall which, if reinforced often enough, will probably work in the future should the need arise. Of course obedience training is always useful.
