Halti Head collar.  Halti3_03

Got chase a halti head collar the other day, Been using it for a few days now and its working!

Ive been using a harness for quite a while, and it was working great, but now his getting stronger in the chest i think his realized his got more power than he thought.

He wasn't too sure at first, had a bit of a pull and tryed to get it off, but as soon as we got out and started walking, he started to ignore that he even had it on.

After about 5 minutes he was walking right beside me, no pulling, walking perfectly.

I took him out for a quick walk round to the shop today, didn't bother putting the halti collar on as its just round the corner, just had his lead attached to his collar, and he was walking perfectly still, right beside me.

I think rather than just taking his strength away, its actually teaching him to walk to my side, rather than ahead of me.

Would defiantly recommend it to anyone trying improve walking habits.

I wasn't sure if it would work, i was looking for something to help me teach him to walk beside me rather than in front of me, with the harness he was able to get too far ahead. But with the halti so far so good!

I agree, probbably one of the best things out there.
So long as the dog dosnt get depressed, dont want to go out on walks or spend the whole walk kicking themselfs in the face (left right left right) because it was on, like my lurcher did.

Laughing Chase doesn't seem to mind it at all, once he gets the message that i want him beside me rather than in front of me ill stop using it.

Defiantly worth the money for anyone having problems with walking. His improving so quickly.

I've tried all sorts to stop Molly pulling, even non pull harnesses, nothing seems to work, so I'm thinking a Halti is the next step if she doesn't buck up her ideas soon.

Yer i cant imagine you'd be able to find one to fit a EBT's face shape. They kinda rely on the muzzle bit resting in the space between where the muzzle and the forehead meet, if that makes any sense doh

Do you have any problems walking Dempsey? I can imagine if he pulls you feel it! Laughing

The Halti I use for Taz was a god send but be careful to not over correct becasue they tend to become numb to it and after a few months their neck muscles become stronger so corrections wont do much good.

Handy to know. I haven't even had to correct Chase since ive been using it, Its working really well for him. But will defiantly keep that in mind.

Another similar product we use is the Canny Collar ,this works in a similar way to the Halti but has a strap that goes across the nose and when they start to pull it bows the head forward not by much but enough to slow them ,the other advantge of the canny is it is not fixed to the head so the strap can be slipped off the nose and it can be used as a normal lead , we do this then when they start to pull again we put it back on until they stop then slip it off again ,doing this repeatedly seems to get the message through ( after a while :0 ) that no pulling = no strap ,http://www.cannyco.co.uk/home.html

I have ordered one of these for Dizzy. She pulls a lot when walking, she has a harness at the moment but even with that she pulls. So hoping this will do the trick Smile will keep ya posted when it gets here and see how she goes.

Awsome bit of kit the Halti, works really well I have found well worth using. Only needs a gentle correction each time thanks to the way it works. Between a halti and posative renforcement when your dog is doing well it works a treat.

Well, what can I say. I found this site when researching Halti Head Collars, so first off thanks for that. Second, after reading the above comments and others around the web I decided to get one for Baxter.

Bax is very strong and he's a puller. He will only slow or stop (stay) for me and when we're out my wife simply cannot take his lead as she gets pulled all over.

Ordered the Halti and it came today and only have one thing to say; AMAZING!!!
Took Baxter out with his new Halti Head Collar and apart from us both getting soaked through it was.....stressless.
Can't believe I've not tried one sooner. No pulling whatsoever.
When it came I left it on the side for him to have a sniff of and get it out of his system that it was there, then put it on him a few times to get him used to that.
Then came walkies time; took him a little while (and a few treats) to get used to it, but overall a bloody success Smile

If you haven't already got one, or are 'on the fence' I would highly recommend it.....especially at the price (under £7 on Amazon delivered).

i used to use them with my gsds and would definately recomend for pullers
Skye and buster used harnesses but now are walking lovely on just their collars
Lyndon keep trying sometimes it can take a while for them to get used to the feeling of something on their nose just like when you first put a collar on them

An alternative is the Gentle Leader, Also for any users of Haltis or the like, do not use them on extension leads, if your dog takes off for any reason and he comes to the end of lead he will come to an abrupt halt and the Halti or Leader could cause some damage to muzzle.

We tried a halti. Rolo did really well to start with but then he started throwing tantrums on it and ripping his face trying to get it off, poor little man had blood pouring down his face, it didn't matter how gentle the correction used or rewards for distraction. If he decided he wanted it off, He was getting it off any way possible Sad

Found the Halti to be very good for Blue. Just takes a bit of time for them to get used to and not try and do the occasional sneeky attempt to paw it off

I have to say I dislike these for a couple of reasons. Firstly is that I'd hate to have something like that on my face and if I wouldn't want it the I won't do it to my dog. The 2nd is really important to remember if you do use one. If you have a dog that suddenly pulls, or who learns to pull with his head twisted, you can damage the neck. A vet friend hates them for that reason.

I bought one of these today.

I was in two minds whether to get one or not but after reading the reviews about them I decided to give it a go as I needed something to help me control Coopers pulling because of my illness. I bought it mainly just to try it and if Cooper looked in any distress or it was causing him to scratch etc I would take it off and not use it.

When I first put it on him he hated it and was trying to get it off as it was an unusual feeling compared to hos normal collar and lead. Once we started walking he gradually began to get used to it and eventually forgot it was there. It was amazing and he wasn't pulling at all, just walking nicely beside me. I am still giving him treats etc so he knows to walk beside me.

Some people won't like these and some people will love them and everyone is entitled to their own opinion about these. It's people's preference and that is why this forum is so good because everyone has an opinion of different things to help others.

For me the Halti is an absolute godsend but I don't plan on using this long term, just until Cooper has learnt to walk beside me.

Due to arthritis in my back,I do need the help of something like the halti. Bo is very well built and is so heavy I can't pick her up,so her weight was an estimate lol I do hope she gets on well with it so that I can eventually phase it out. I'd much prefer a harness but need to read up on that first Smile

Yes we all have our own opinions and its good. I dont like them, because of the harm they can do to the neck should they get in to a situation. I much prefer the harness, but due to a shoulder problem, we were advised not to have one by the vet as it wasnt helping, and after advice from here, I went for the wide collar to spread the load round her neck, I am just lucky Pixee is good at heel and will walk nicely in front of me on footpaths. All down to training. Just make sure when Cooper is walking at your heel, he understand that comment as it will help for when you go back to the lead or harness.

I have tried the halti for a few weeks and have decided that it's not going to work for our pup, even though she doesn't pull with it.

She gets visibly depressed, rolls around on the ground and rushes through her walk as fast as possible. We have done all the tips suggested by trainers to get her used to it and she just hates it. I am a little nervous when she's fully grown that she will be a strong puller, but I am more worried that she starts to see me as her torturer!

For now, going back to stopping dead every time she pulls.
