Featured Advice from Our Experts
Dogs are social animals whose evolutionary history makes them willing and able to live in groups. Group living enabled wolves to work together to obtain food, raise their young and defend their territory. It would be counter-productive for members of a group to fight with each other and risk injury. Although domestic dogs are not wolves, they do have a social structure in which each dog is either dominant (leader) or subordinate in its relationship with each pack member. This is a “dominance hierarchy.”

I have a rescue GSD that has been a handful to train. She has done great except for walking on a leash. Constant pulling. We tried every type of leash and harness. This head collar is padded across the nose (which the others we tried were not). It also has an extra strap that I believe helps with comfort. It took a couple of weeks for her to get completely used to it, but the difference has been unbelievable!
"This collar is ok."
While it does get the job done, it needs a padded nose band, and a little tougher adjustment for the neck collar part. The dog I am training has slipped this collar a few times, as well as unclipping the collar attachment, and getting the adjustable clip for the nose band undone. If it was a little heavier made it would be ideal.
Worth it's weight in gold, I can now walk my dogs in peace!
I breed boxers and this produce works great.It does keep the boxer from pulling but you do need a few days of training them on it 1st.
"Simply the Best"
This were first recommended to me when I had an Irish Wolfhound rescue who was perfect on leash until he saw a cat. I was no match for 170# of excited torque and this worked like a dream. Flash fwd several years to my extremely stubborn, frustrating 80# Gold Ret mix. After Sporn halter, Sporn head halter, & persistent training, I am right back to the Head Halti. Simply the most effective I've found.
