Halti Head Collar Padded
Advantages: Helps with pulling
Disadvantages: Does not work on short muzzels
I bought this item when I was trying to stop my large adult male Rotti pulling. It is really easy to fit and adjust and easy to put on the dog. It does take some getting used to for the dog as it is a very new experience for them but once they are used to it they dont realise it is there realy.
My Rotti was very large and very naugthy as he had never been taught to walk on the lead (Rescue dog). This item did help to some extent but it did not really work well with him due to his short muzzle. He was able to drop his head when the lead was slack and it would drop off the end of his nose. Once done he did it all the time. If the dog who is wearing it has a longer nose then it will not drop off the nose when the dog drops his head and will work better.
There is no way to adjust this halti to stop this problem and so I could not use it for my Rotti or any dog I have with a short nose.
I have a Shepherd too and had she had a problem with pulling it would have been perfect to use with her and it would not drop off her nose.
There is a great safety feature were the halti will attach to the collar, bought separately, but I get round this by attaching the lead to the halti and the collar.
This item is strong but never tested to the limit as the idea of it is that it pulls the dogs head towards to walker slowing him down rather than being strong an pulling the dog back. I always attached the lead tot he collar also incase the halti did break, I would then have the lead attached to the dog.
This item is good providing your dog has a long muzzle.
***Please never use hese with a flexi lead as I see so many people doing. If the dog runs out and the lead extends to its full length and then stops when the dog is at full speed it will snap his neck around and break it Very dangerous. If you need a halti on your dog for control you MUST use a proper lead. Flexi leads are great but do not give you control of a dog who pulls.***
Summary: Use logically
