ZoeD1217 Thanks all! I will be looking for a martingale today. I'm sure I'll be back with 1000 questions on how to train her not to pull. I've tried treats... She is so hyper focused she won't take them when we are out walking.

K9POPPY We sometimes use a Martingale for training, 8 weeks- up, or if you prefer a harness, the Walkeez from Leerburg.com is awesome, well-padded, very comfortable for a pup, comes in all sizes. It just depends on what you prefer to train with. You'll probably get 100 different answers here- Bob

Harry and Lola I have used martingales on puppies from 8 weeks.

Mister C Thanks for the replies above.

At what age is it appropriate to use an martingale on a puppy?

Harry and Lola I like using a martingale for puppies, a proper fitting one won't allow it to slip off.

It's a restraint system for the car. It came with the http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001B1MY1A/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1, but I didn't like the seat belt attachment it came with. I bought http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083QSSL6/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I did like and a stronger carabiner was purchased separately. I didn't like the one it came with.

Twyla Not a Lupine, just a cute one from the box store. She would be fine on a flat collar, except she kept trying to jump in front of Woolf to get his martingale on, so got her one of her own. She isn't spoiled

trcy I got mine from http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00A20SFNM/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2IRXY58U0GE5I&coliid=I38CFM2C1M04UW. I like the kind with the quick release, because I don't like putting them on and taking the off over the head and ears.

His seat belt for the car is a harness. I was in a rush and clipped his leash onto it when we were going into the vets. I had no control. It was a nightmare. I like the martingale. He must know the difference, because he is very easy to handle with it.

He is 10 months and 78 pounds, but we started his training with the martingale when he was 3 months.

I use a martingale on both dogs. The Lab, simply because I found a cute girly one for her . Woolf has a martingale as a back up to his prong.
Is it a Lupine martingale? That's what I stumbled upon on Amazon and they're cute! I was worried I might be sacrificing quality for something purdy
