As mentioned yesterday, my outing with Brodie made me realize I want something more for when we are in public. I was looking at a Ruff-wear harness but I pulled out this martingale collar that I purchased months ago and tried it this morning. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HSNDPS0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I did like it, he walked very well on it - loose lead healing the whole time. I like that I can leave it attached to his leash when not in use and snap it on/off. I am not a 100% fan of the adjustment of the collar, but am a fan of the locking clasp which I discovered when I tried to take it off him. It clattered a bit on his dog tags while walking, a peeve, but next walk I will try it behind his flat collar. Any suggestions for a better martingale? I guess it's just my fear of being in a bad situation and having something fail on me.
