There's a mixed debate about this. Sacha has been in a pinch, and reacts to the sound of a chain jingling....so, a martingale with the chain works well on her (I can just jingle the chain, and she "expects" a correction...even without the pinch on).
I have a friend with a huge (89-pound female GSD) who went from a pinch to a nylon martingale. She says it's great, and it works as well as the pinch.
As far as training, I don't know what the difference is (can anyone tell me). I just know why Sacha reacts. I have a really nice Mrs. Bones one for Nisha....it doesn't really give a correction, just tightens (so there's no pain...my trainer is absolutely against pain at her age).
where did you find a "make your own martingale" kit?
