KNOW YOUR BREED: SAFETY-
by Nomi Berger

than their lean necks.
KNOW that if you attach a leash to a normal collar (also known as a tag collar) your IG
can easily slip out of the collar leaving you with nothing but that collar and leash in your
KNOW that IGs are built for speed, they can run 25 mph and have a strong prey drive.
They can leave you behind, feeling helpless and frantic.
KNOW that the chances of you catching an IG before they are either out of sight or
struck by a car are unlikely. And because their identifying tags are likely on that collar
you are holding, the chances of them being safely returned are slim.
KNOW that a Martingale Collar is specifically designed to prevent Sighthounds like IGs
from backing out of the collar. The Martingale Collar has two loops, the smaller one
being the control loop which tightens when pulled. The second loop is the adjustment
loop, which you adjust to fit your IGs neck.
KNOW that Martingale Collars are a simple solution that can make the difference
between tragedy or LIFE. A Martingale Collar can help assure your precious pet’s safety
when on walks or getting to and from the car.
KNOW that, most of all, TIGR is always available to help!
