Quick Overview

The EzyDog Checkmate Collar is a Martingale style correction collar that is ideal for training, provides excellent control and does not need to be resized for each fitting.


The Checkmate Collar enables control whilst preventing the choking effect of a slip collar and is therefore an excellent collar for training your dog.


Checkmate Collar Features



Extensively used in training, the Checkmate will help keep your dog's head from slipping out of the collar when walking or when your dog gets too excited.

This Martingale collar is made with two loops. The larger loop slips onto the dogs neck and a lead is then clipped to the smaller loop. When the dog tries to pull, the tension on the lead pulls the small loop taut. This makes the large loop smaller and tighter on the neck, thus helping to prevent escape.

When the collar is properly fitted, it will be comfortably loose without your dog noticing it much until the dog begins to pull.



The Checkmate is made from our soft and durable nylon for comfort around your dog's neck. The webbing is reflective for those late night training sessions.

Please note: Do not leave the Checkmate Collar on your pup unattended

    Lovely little collar to match Chester’s harness and lead.
  • Checkmate Collar
    Review by Evelyn, (Posted on 06/01/2021)
    Unfortunately I ordered the wrong size, but I’ve ordered a larger one and sent the original back which was very easy to do as I used the original packaging, a free post sticker was enclosed with a form to complete.
  • Good Collar
    Review by Joe, (Posted on 10/08/2018)
    I bought the medium size for my mini schnauzer who is a strong puller. I thought it might be too wide for her as her neck is quite small but it fits okay and lessens the pressure around her neck when she pulls compared to narrower collars. The collar was a little stiff to begin with but after a few washes it has softened and when she pulls the collar tightens and loosens with a smoother action. Since using the collar when she pulls she doesn't make that choking sound like she did with a narrow collar..
  • best collar i have ever used!
    Review by ezlouch@googlemail.com, (Posted on 11/01/2017)
    I have 2 huskies and I chose this collar for my boy as I walk him along side a pram, so I need to make sure he cannot slid his collar and if he does pull a little then a training collar is great as it stops him. Well it's been a week and I am so glad I chose this one as my partner chose a different style and as nice as the other one is, this one is much better suited. I have full control while I'm pushing the pram at the same time.
    Well worth the money!
  • great collar with good features
    Review by Elinor Turner, (Posted on 07/12/2016)
    I bought this collar for our 9 month old wirehaired vizsla. He's quite a big boy and the large size is just right, with a sturdy but not clumsy look. The blue contrasts very well with his coat.
    It rests comfortably when he's lounging and is just enough of a restraint when we're walking.
    I also like the small detail of there being a separate ring for the dog tag to attach to.
    Review by nilem patel, (Posted on 10/11/2016)
    I love these collars but the issue i have is the colour fades so whilst there is no fault in the actual durability of the product, the colour fades from a lovely blaze orange to a really insipid pale orange/pink colour. so much so i have to regularly i.e. yearly buy new ones so that look as good as new. i dont wash them as was advised not to but sponge them down when they get dirty but having 2 water mad labs they do get a bit wet.

  • dog collars
    Review by May Mathieson, (Posted on 12/04/2016)
    I find that these collars are really strong and practical they even go in the washing machine. My dogs have several collars from ezydog,I wouldn't buy any other collars for them.
  • Easy to use collar
    Review by Lawrence, (Posted on 16/11/2015)
    Love the collar. Easy to put on my puppy, and strong and durable enough for when he gets older. As the puppy tries to pull away, the loop tightens (rather than loosens like most collars) via the black 'strap' with the ezydog logo on it. Very good customer service as well.
  • Very good check collar
    Review by Edwards, (Posted on 04/11/2015)
    fits snugly so the "check" is immediate as opposed to my half chain check collar which hung loose and required a harder pull to check my dog

    Would recommend if you like check collars
  • Smart and practical
    Review by Carol Walton, (Posted on 16/03/2015)
    This is so much gentler than a choke chain and still does the job. I keep them attached permanently to the Ezydog vario 6 lead with carabiner and just slip them over the dogs heads for walks. They go nicely with the Neo collars they permanently wear. No fiddling with clips in bad weather. I also use them with the 12" mongrel leash for walking round town. I feel confident and in control with them. My dogs are a Siberian husky and a Labrador x husky.
  • comfortable for dog yet dog can't back out
    Review by , (Posted on 11/12/2014)
    Well made, the "sliding" tab works perfectly to close the collar closely round dog's neck when dog pulls backwards or forward, so it's impossible for dog to work collar over his ears by pulling on lead. All-fabric design doesn't deposit rust on dog's neck or chest as happens with the halfcheck collars that use chain for the closing-up part. When no lead attached, collar sits comfortably loose. The reflective stitching is surprisingly effective, although not meant as a fully reflective collar, of course. As for delivery - I couldn't believe when it arrived next day! You couldn't ask for better!
  • brilliant.
    Review by , (Posted on 24/11/2014)
    Really good quality.brilliant value for money
  • Very well made
    Review by Elizabeth, (Posted on 25/08/2014)
    This is the second Ezydog collar that I have bought for my dog; he needed a bigger size and, as I was quite happy with the first one, saw no reason to change products.
    I chose an orange one which shows up very well; I can always pick out my dog in a posse of labs. As a bonus it goes very well with his chocolate fur and he has had several compliments on how good he looks! The collar is obviously made to last and shows no sign of wear at all. I like the separate ID loop and the lead is very easy to attach to the big, solid D ring .
  • Looks like it says on the tin.
    Review by John, (Posted on 22/05/2014)
    Delivery was very fast.

    The collar is exactly as the description on the website.

    Not had chance to use it yet as my Lab is recovering from an opp with a 5in scar from her neck across her front.

    All of the other makes I have used fade or the chain etc rusts.
  • Finally a perfect collar
    Review by Janet, (Posted on 18/02/2014)
    Great product from Ezydog.com - this is the best collar we have.
    ....No damage to coat
    .... Easy to fit
    ....Easy on - easy off
    .....with that extra control thats needed
    .. Great idea - a separate loop for the ID tag
    We have two on for a pulling spainel and another for a large HWV pup
  • Great!!!
    Review by , (Posted on 24/01/2014)
    brilliant collar... really good for anyone who has a strong dog that likes to pull...
  • Best collar ever
    Review by Will, (Posted on 15/01/2014)
    Another great product from ezydog. This is by far the best collar we have bought (and we've tried lots by other manufacturers before discovering your brilliant leads!!)
    ... so easy to fit
    ... basset hounds can't back out of them - despite all the loose skin round neck
    ... comfortable so they don't resist, but design gives you instant control
    Brilliant - thank you!

    PS Thank you also for user friendly website & ordering, great communication & super fast delivery - very impressed.
  • Happy Dog
    Review by Barry, (Posted on 18/11/2013)
    We were using a chain check collar but our yellow Lab kept getting a dirty neck. This has now been resolved and it is also much kinder when he pulls, he's only 11 months old so still a (large) puppy. Excellent quality would recommend to anyone.
  • Great for large dogs!
    Review by Jason Maddison, (Posted on 07/11/2013)
    I really like these collars, so much so that I've bought three! I have to Akitas who occasionally pull when another dog barks at them, the collars are exceptionally strong and durable. The check system works fairly well. The choice of colours is excellent, I only wish they did more!
  • Great collar
    Review by , (Posted on 01/10/2013)
    Very pleased with quality. Exactly what we wanted. Would highly recommend this.
  • Checkmate Collar
    Review by , (Posted on 25/09/2013)
    Ordered one of these for my eighteen month old Labrador. Great quality, with good design, like the separate tab for dog tags and the fact that it is easy to take off unlike normal martindale collars. Ordered a second one for when he is working for Canine Partners. Only one request, can we have these in purple again (like you used to) for all of us who have dogs that are Canine Partners or demo dogs for them. Had to order a black one for when he is working as a demo dog rather than the purple I wanted. Have been buying your products for years as they are great quality.
  • excellent collar
    Review by barbara, (Posted on 07/06/2013)
    My spaniel really pulls on the lead and this collar was the most comfortable half check collar for her. Would thoroughly recommend this and will get next size when she grows out of this one.
  • Best products on the market
    Review by Judith Basham, (Posted on 23/05/2013)
    Over the past 45yrs of dog ownership and handling, these are by far the best products on the market. Stylish, comfortable, easy on and off; most of all the products do just exactly what they advertised I only use Ezydog collars/harnesses for daily use and in the shooting field. The colour I have chosen - the lovely terracotta orange is superb for a gun dog in the field.
  • checkmate collars
    Review by , (Posted on 13/04/2013)
    I have bought these for my staff's they are great durable and a much better alternative to choke collars which I hate. Would highly recommend.
  • I love this collar
    Review by D.N. Milton Keynes, (Posted on 02/01/2013)
    My boxer is just too strong for me but I dont like choke chains. I think they are crual. This collar is good because Buster knows when he is pulling too hard. I think it is GREAT
