Our Product Review: We’ve had MAJOR success with the Gentle Lead but for anyone hesitant to use a head collar or for those who are fans of harnesses, this is a great option to help stop pulling and make walks more enjoyable for owner and pooch alike. What still drives me crazy about using Goose’s head collar is there’s still times when he rolls and fish tails around, because he wants it off his face. Although he walks like a dream with it on, we were interested to see if we’d get them same no-pull walks using a harness without the occasional roll or fish tail into a snowbank or muddy field. We’re happy to report the harness definitely did this. Although he was still able to somewhat pull if he really wanted something, like a fox or crow, it was definitely better than walking without a harness or head collar. Although the head collar totally eliminates all pulling (total, dream come true), the harness still allowed for some as him pulling didn’t directly result in a real-negative outcome like the head collar does. So bascically if you’ve got a really stubborn dog who’s also extremely strong (aka Goose) the head collar is the way to go. If you’ve got a dog that’s extremely strong but a big baby deep down or a dog that’s not so stubborn or motivated to hunt and kill foxes or become friends with them, the harness may be all you’ll need. Big thanks to Anipet Animal Supplies for sending this product our way.
Company’s Description: The HALTI Harness was designed by Dr Roger Mugford to STOP a dog pulling by providing front control. It applies the same principle as the HALTI Headcollar but by steering the dog from his chest rather than by his head. The HALTI Harness puts owners in control of dogs that don’t like or cannot wear a HALTI Headcollar.
The patented front control system steers the dog from his chest and shoulders – and thus sets the direction in which he can move. Unlike other designs of anti-pull harnesses, the HALTI does not put painful pressure on the body and is always comfortable. Ideally used with a double-ended lead to give maximum control. The back ring above the shoulders acts as a brake while the front lead steers.
