What size collar should I order for my dog?
Using the chart below, find the size closest to your dog's neck. When measuring your dog's neck, measure just behind the ears. If you don't have a flexible measuring tape, a piece of string or a strip of paper works well. Keep in mind when selecting your size that martingale collars do not have a buckle and need to loosen enough to slip over your dog's head.

|13" - 17"

What is a martingale collar?
Martingale collars safely keep your dog on leash by gently tightening if your dog pulls. The collar adds control and, most importantly, prevents your dog from slipping or backing out of their collar during a walk. Martingale collars are a safer, more humane alternative to traditional choke collars because the limited cinch prevents choking or harmful injuries to the neck. Most martingale collars (including ours) do not have buckles, but rather slide over the dog’s head to put it on/off.
I just got my Wiggle & Thump martingale collar (yay!)… now how do I put it on correctly?
Because our martingale collars do not have buckles (we think it makes it more comfortable) to put it on your dog simply slip the collar over their head and comfortably tighten it. To test the fit, gently tighten the collar by pulling on the D-ring (that your leash attaches to) and ensure the two ends of the cinching loop do not touch. If the collar is too loose it will not prevent your dog from backing out of it. To remove the collar, simply loosen the collar and pull it over your dog’s head.
How do I clean my Wiggle & Thump collar?
Our collars are machine washable. Wash them in cold water and hang them to dry. To prevent scratching of the collar hardware and washing machine, we recommend washing collars with other items such as towels.

Where did the name Wiggle & Thump come from?
Is your dog one of those dogs that gets an uncontrollable wiggle butt when they see you? Or do they just lay on the floor and lazily wag their tail creating a thump? We have one of each in our house... Roxie (the wiggle) and Grouper (the thump) are the two rescue pups that our name was inspired by. See photos of them (and other dogs) on our Instagram page!
