at present i use a short chain lead as alfie pulls but i don't like the idea of using haltis

What is it you dont like about a halti?

Why not try a harness - a harness wont stop him pulling completley but it will give you more control over him. If you wanted to stick to just using a lead and coller, you can get leads from PAH with elasticated wrist bits so its more comfy for you.

I recently purchased a 'canny colla' and its worked a miracle.

You really need to train him not to pull & then you can choose whichever method (collar & lead/harness/head collar & lead) you're happier with.

tried a harness, he only pulls when he gets out of the car to go to the beach or up the hills, around the park he is ok

Just need a little training then when he is excited, have a key word, use it firmly, if he walks well around a park he can do the same when on an outing Smile

try a canny collar , it gets you past the short term pulling and give you chance to train your dog , more of a training aid than a long term fix Smile

Agree with the above, these things are good aids but you really need to concentrate on the training, it does take time and patience but will be well worth it Smile

I totally agree with above re-training, it's really the only way you will get him to stoop pulling, with time & patience he will get there. Smile
