I have 4 dogs including an adorable Siberian Huskey, Clyro who'll be 1 soon, but still hasn't grown out of the 'pulling' phase. Although he's technically a puppy at just 10 and a half months old, he's pretty strong and although i know he would never harm another dog, i always have to be wary when walking him as he pulls to get to objects/dogs/people due to excitement, which is very dangerous especially when on main roads and on a few ocassions he's physically broken his collars from the strain.
I was desperate to get him to stop pulling and joined a puppy/dog training club when he was 9 months old. I explained the pulling issue with the trainer of the class and she reccomended the Halti head collar.
I decided to give it a try and purchased a cute red one from my local Pets At Home for £12, which was alot more than i'd usually pay for a collar or lead but because i wanted to get him trained thought it would be worth it.
Putting it on was a bit complicated at first, mainly because i've never used one before, but i found it was really adjustable and fitted Clyro well, it was a bit large on him and in hindesight i should of got the medium rather than large as the large is excactly that! I'm sure he'll grow into it though.
When i first put it on, Clyro didn't like it at all! He pawed at it and tilted his head forward, but once i got him excited with the word 'walk' etc, he soon forgot and although he was trying to pull it seemed to do the trick of slowing him down.
Personally i attatch the halti to Clyro's collar so he's 100% safe and can't slip it off etc, this feature is great and gives peace of mind that your dog is safe and under control at all times. My dog isn't huge but has an extremely strong pull which the halti has coped with well so far, if you have a dog such as a large german shepard, or maybe a great dane, then i'd reccomend to DEFINETLY attatch to halti to the collar just incase as it could maybe snap if the dog was strong enough.
Clyro is now used to his Halti and it's definetly stopped him pulling to the extent that he was. He shows no sign of discomfort when he's wearing it and o'd say it's worth the money i paid for it and woud reccomend it to anyone who needs to stop there dog pulling.
Summary: Good for dogs that pull
