Martingale collars are a very popular choice for dog trainers. They are not a severe as a regular choke collar since they cannot infinetly tighten and choke the dog. This instructable will show you how to make a martingale collar from scratch.

I have recently started a DIY pet blog called Bloggie Stylish where you can find other cool tutorials like this one.

Step 1: Tools & Supplies You Will Need

You will need some sort of webbing. There are many kinds out there like cotton, polypropylene and nylon. Three D-rings, which you can scavenge off of an old collar. Scissors. I have two pairs, one for cutting and a small pair of trimming scissors for cutting the threads. A flexible measuring tape for measuring your dog's neck. A sewing machine (that's a given) and sewing thread.
