Yes, Martingale collar is what we use on our Howie since he was a puppy. He kept escaping from us when we used the normal collars. He was able to get his head out from the collar when we went for walks, especially, when he was stubborn. With the martingale collar, it really doesn't harm him and easier for us to control while we are walking. A quick jerk of the collar will correct his bad behaviour. Most recommended.
