Martingale Collar - Full Nylon, or Classic

    Hi Everyone,

    I tried to search up Martingale / Collars, but didn't get the answer I was looking for, I'm shopping now for my new puppy, and wondering the following:

    1) puppy is about 8 weeks when I get him (so in about a month-ish), is that too early for a Martingale Collar (I've read in the forums here that this is the best collar for this breed, since they have a thick neck and small head)?

    2) I noticed there are 2 collars, 1 is a full Nylon collar, and the other is Nylon with the classic nylon with the metal chain (both can be found in Amazon)

    Is there a big difference between the two types? I never saw the full Nylon Martingale before and hoping the members here are able to give me some insight.

    Note* I'm also getting a harness, but want to wait for the puppy to come home before we select the appropriate fitting harness.

    @Atlus2015 - Here is an excellent link (that is at the top of every forum page) that teaches you how to use Google to search the forum:

    There have been oodles of threads on collars which goes into excellent discussion about the different types of collars, including martingales (both cloth and chain).

    It is always best to go ahead and read through the old topics (because most likely, your question has been answered) instead of starting a new thread. If you still have questions or want to continue the discussion, please post in the most relevant thread.

    Here are a few threads to get you started (there are more, if you search):

    In order to get the above results, I typed it "martingale site:shibainuforum.org" in Google. Super simple, great results.

    Thanks!
