Check out the GAP shop -now we are selling our own GAP martingale collars, with all proceeds going  directly to the hounds who are waiting for homes in GAP kennels. So go on- treat your hound and help more of them find forever homes :)
I have been involved in procurement of materials and design of these collars -and I am very proud how they have turned out!

They are made by the greyhound trainer who makes lots of stuff for greyhound racing industry, and they are perfectly finished. All collars are fully adjustable and triple stitched at stress points to prevent breaking and prolong durability. All these collars are 1.5inch wide, which is suitable for most greyhounds. But we are having some 2inch ones made, for those few bigger hounds who need them :)
Picture above shows only a few designs we have -we have got loads more being made, jester patters, preppy stripes in all colors, novelty patterns, animal prints, damask prints and many more.

We have imported the hardware from the USA -it is nickel plated, special hardware for martingale collars.
The canvas ribbons are imported from the USA too, and they wear perfectly -my Louie has had one of these collars for 2 years now, and it still looks like new! (this is his everyday collar).
We have imported the real stuff, specifically designed for martingales -we did not scrimp on the materials -after all our hounds deserve the best!

These cost $35 per collar (plus $2 for postage)- contact Sheila at GAP shop shop@greyhoundsaspets.org.nz or phone (07) 858 3210 evenings and weekends.

And watch this space for new designs coming in shortly!
