The patented Halti headcollar, designed by Dr. Roger Mugford, gives you total control when walking your dog. Calms boisterous dogs. Simplifies training. Restrains biters. Reduces fears. Reforms fighters. Assists with restraining dog during veterinarian or grooming visits. Calms hysterical car travelers. Halti stops pulling because if you guide a dog's head, the body will surely follow. The soft nylon collar fits comfortably around its face without restricting the mouth. If the dog tries to pull or lunge forward, Halti transfers the forward motion into turning the head sideways. This immediately discourages the activity without any undue stress to the animal. Perfect for leash control training and as a permanent training collar for large or active dogs. Washable nylon webbing with strong metal loops and durable plastic buckle.

The Company Of Animals Halti Head Collar
I recently bought this at Pet Valu for my excitable staffordshire terrier. She's about 50 pounds and has a pretty short snout, I think she just made the cut for being able to wear it on her size of muzzle. She doesn't pull at all with it on when we're walking and when she see's another dog, although she still gets excited she acts like less of an energizer bunny than she used too. I will be recommending this to some friends of mine!
After finding nothing that worked with my 50lb super muscular pup we tried this. I can now walk her and keep her under control without fear of being pulled down. When she pulls it gently pulls her head to the side. If she's super excited she'll hop around a bit, but without tugging at me.
We love our halti! Unfortunately, our boys is a big guy and pulls extra hard, so we've worn through a few of them but it is by far the best way to walk him. He's a Rottweiler who is 80 pounds of sheer muscle, and he gets walked every day. I think the Halti would have held up better if a) he didn't pull so hard and b) it wasn't under constant strain from everyday use. If your dog is a puller, I'd recommend this to you!
We got our Haulti at Petco and was a reasonable price. We tried using this product to help train our German Shepherd not to pull during her walks. Unfortunately she hated it and ended up breaking it the first time we put it on her. I was very disappointed because we heard great things! Hopefully it works better for everyone else.
My pup gets nervous around other dogs and as a result can come off aggressive but the Halti has helped so much, He's definitely a puller and this helps control that more too, but mostly works the best for his whining and crazy barking when walking
My roommate used this on her pit bull and had great success. Her pit bull was showing signs of aggression towards other dogs and people. This helped to ease those aggressions and now she is a loving pup once again.
Our Brittany is horrible on a leash. My husband brought a halti home to try and now walking is a breeze. If you think your dog is too pig headed or strong willed you have got to try this. I never thought it would make a difference but our dog no longer pulls us around.
Works just as good if not better than the Easy Walk harness. This has less nose bridge padding but still bothered my dog the same.
I love this product! It really helps gain control of your dog, and keeps them from pulling. I also like the extra snap that hooks to the collar just as an extra security measure.
I LOVE this. I first bought a Gentle Leader, but my dog removed it in 10 minutes. This one is amazing and has been a great training tool in her service dog training. I highly recommend this.
Q & A
Does anyone have a big dog and use this but your dog keeps trying to go at it and what do you do to stop. Other than a regular correction
I use a harness to walk my dog,he is a 14 pound choodle (chihuahua/poodle) and he is still in training but he's wild on the leash,do others seem to have a hard time with their dog struggling and trying to get out of the head collar?
