Martingale collars, also known as loop collars or semi-choke collars, are a special type of collar. They are frequently used by breeds like the greyhound whose elegant long necks can be larger than their heads. Martingales are also used by people who are transitioning from a full choke collar. The martingale has a loop on the top portion of the collar where the leash attaches to the D ring. When a dog pulls on the leash the loop elongates and tightens. When pulling stops the pressure releases the loop.
