I agree with JoT, awesome thread Fran..
I too hade several martingales for Otis..loved the one Debbie Bartos made for him..it was fleece lined and so soft, no beads or fringe though.
I also like Lupine's martingales..because they have a 100% return policy..Otis chewed his twice and they replaced it, Moses just to his torn up a month or so ago and they replaced it no questions asked..got to love that…theirs don't come that wide though, but enough to be a good collra to swtch off with. Otis had a wide collar (the one Debbie made for him) almost 2" at the widest and it tapered down to 3/4" where the d-ring was..very comfy on the trachea..
For Pippin...well we have got to try different ones..so we have an assortment ;):D, but I am waiting for him to get a little larger still..I know where to shop now though..thanks guys.
PS. He does have a collar and leash made by a lady on ETSY..love it, it was made from an old pair of jeans..so it is soo soft and I wash it when I wash our jeans..but he will outgrow that before long.
