What is a Dog Halter and how does it work?

A dog head halter is a behavioural tool similar to a horse halter, with straps around the nose and behind the ears. It gives more control during walks by allowing the handler to gently guide the dog’s head, thus directing their movement. It's effective for training dogs to walk without pulling.

Are there any safety concerns with Dog Halters?

While dog halters are the leading innovators in humane, anti-pull technology, incorrect use, such as sharp-jerk corrections, can cause neck pain. It's important to gradually accustom the dog to the halter (using treats if necessary) and use it with the proper technique, avoiding any jerking motions. View our TikTok for video instructions.

How should a Dog Halter fit?

Proper fitting is crucial. The neck strap should sit just behind the ears (you should fit 1-2 fingers underneath the strap for tightness), and the nose strap band be adjusted so that it cannot slide off the dog’s nose, when first setting it up. The fitting should allow the dog to engage in regular activities like panting, drinking and it should not be too tight. See our sizing chat >HERE<

How do you train a dog to wear a Dog Halter?

Start by associating the halter with positive experiences like treats. Allow the dog to get used to the sensation of the halter by progressively introducing it in short sessions. Never force the halter on the dog; instead, encourage them to accept it willingly. Tip: Guide the dogs nose through the halter with a treat. Most dogs will comply straight away.
