Semi slips prevent semi splits
Keep your team running together - not splitting the trail
The semi-slip style collar keeps your sled dog team running as one unit. It also helps ensure your husky makes it home with you and not running the county.
If you’re not familiar with the semi-slip design it allows the collar to tighten a few inches (and no further).
This is a little safer than a full choke collar for mushing, as it is designed not to restrict the windpipe more than necessary to keep the collar on.
However, it still gives you the extra tightening to make the collar smaller when needed. Say, when your dog slips out of their harness and wants to run the opposite direction of your team.
You know hypothetically…
Traditional sled team usage would be to clip necklines to the tug line shared with the other dogs, which is their primary usage outside of emergencies!
Works well with dogs with a lot of coat, like your huskies and malamutes but is a good safety backup regardless of breed or skill level.
