I just got a martingale collar for Rocky. It is the type that does not have a clasp just pull over head. I was wondering how a martingale collar should be worn. Is it to be tight and up behind ears or should it be kept loose enough to pull on and off?

Keep it loose. Basically when you pull the martingale slip it should tighten up behind the ears just tightly enough that it isn't going to choke the dog. So when the dog is not pulling it should rest very loosely at the bottom of the neck.

Thanks, Well loose tight does not really matter on Rocky since the collars never stay up high on him. I loosened it some so I can slip it off if I need too. I plan to buy one of hoydens in the future, but I wanted to try one first. So I bought one of the Lupine ones today.
