collar does NOT have a buckle.

CHAIN MART: is a martingale (half-check collar) option that has been added for
those needing a quicker response in training or working sessions. The control
loop is made from chain and the collar is made from nylon. These type of
collars are designed to allow more control than a standard buckle collar and
still be safe to use. Best suited for short-haired dogs. Fine-haired or fluffy
haired dogs should use the traditional martingale. Not for water wear.

TAG COLLAR: is a single loop collar without a clip or D-Ring. Tags are clipped

Measure your dog's neck around the collar's natural resting point. Collars are
adjustable up to several inches. If you are not sure what size to order, please
include your dog's neck measurement and I'll create a collar just for him or
SMALL - fits necks 11-15 inches
MEDIUM - fits necks 13-18 inches
LARGE - fits necks 16 to 23 inches
X-LARGE - fits necks 18 - 26 inches
SPECIAL SIZING NOTE:
A MARTINGALE is a slip-on collar, you should allow at least 2 inches larger
than the widest head measurement to slide the collar on and off comfortably.
When sizing for breeds that are not sight hounds, please take the measurement
around the widest part of your dog's head, then add two inches.
The collars are constructed using 100% cotton fabrics, high quality hardware,
home-decor interfacing, and have a nylon flexible webbing backing that is
strong yet supple enough to move with your dog. *Cotton fabrics are not UV
resistant and will fade over time.
The 1.5 inch webbing is made from seatbelt and offers an even smoother fit for
your pup. The nylon webbing colors are artists choice, unless you ask for a
specific color. Only black webbing is available for the 1.5 inch or 2 inch
Re-enforced stitching is used at all stress points.
Unfortunately, the dog
collars are not chew proof, so care is needed when introducing this type of
collar to your dogs or puppies. Additionally if you are new to Martingales,
these collars are not intended for tie-out situations either, because it is a
choker and could seriously hurt your pup.
Black high quality plastic curved buckles are used.
**Please note, as the width increases in the buckle the strength goes down.
The plastic bars are longer and break with less force. If you have a puller, I
would suggest a traditional martingale.
Remember, even buckle martingales are NOT for tie out.
Metal buckles are not available.
I will do my best to re-create what you see in front of you, however, patterns
may shift as they often do in their various re-peat lines. I love to use big
patterns because of their assorted colors, so things may change around a bit. I
will do my very best to create a beautiful and a well crafted collar for you
and your pup to enjoy.
