I have one for Densil and must admit it does stop the pulling - the problem is Densil hates it and won't even go out the door if I put it on him, lol

I was told by the dog trainer that the halti type collars need to be done up pretty tight - although enough room to get a couple of fingers under, because they cover the pressure points just behind the ears and can actually calm a dog down.

I'm not a fan TBH as most dogs find them aversive, not to mention they can cause neck injuries. I think front clipping harnesses are much kinder and safer for a pulling dog.

If you are going to use one though, you should make sure it's clipped to a collar or harness as headcollars are easy to get out of as you discovered! Smile

I bought a dogmatic for Harry about 2 weeks ago but he hates it. He just screws his face up and looks really upset. Sad

Unfortunately he can get it off as well, which kind of makes it pointless (unless im doing something wrong of course.

I agree with Galadriel about the front clipping harnesses. I have a Ttouch harness with a d ring on front and on the back so I can clip a double ended lead to both when I need Harry to walk to heel, and then just use one when he can have more space. Find he doesn't pull on that. Smile

Those ttouch ones are great and they don't restrict their movement like those non-pull ones that have a strap across the front Smile

chester has a leather dogmatic and even if he does pull it off its still attached round his neck and to the lead so i still have control of him! i did when i first got dogmatic take the attachment off my halti that was an extra for collar to halti but found it was not needed so maybe you need something like that

If I use a halt//head collar I also use a harness and a double ended lead, so that I have 2 points of attachment.
