I wish I could play with your ponytail.
I think this works good if used correctly. I saw a girl today with a young Black Lab in training to be a service dog. He was only about a year to 2 years old. I saw them earlier, so I know the Halti must have been on all day. The dog was whimpering and crying and trying to rub the Halti off off on her. She explained to me that he was mad at her for putting it on. I don’t think she was doing it right. The dog seemed to never feel any release. Every time she stopped walking he would plop down at her feet and put his head down as if he was depressed and exhausted. I think it was the only way that he got out of the pressure. I work with horses and letting go of pressure at a good point is very important. With this young dog, I think he needed shorter intervals with the Halti on, and a lot more release when he was being good.
After two years of being jerked, pulled and dragged by my 75 pound standard poodle, and MONTHS of reinforcment training that improved, but did not stop it, I bought a Halti head harness. It INSTANTLY stopped his pulling. He goes to the end of his leash and slows down as soon as he feels pressure from the collar. This has made the quality of my life and his infinitely better. I highly recommend this product. He likes me to put it on because he knows it means he gets a nice walk. He’s smart, so it only took putting it on twice with a treat before he did it without resisting.
holtys are quite cruel to dogs COZ my dog bit me while I put it on
Can these be used with a French bulldog?
Audio is way too loud.
2:12 – it’s a trap!!!
Does it hurt to give the treat when they grab your hand?
Thanks. I like your videos, they are true and effective. I don’t think you use any ecoller etc. to train. That’s a big point. Just one question, is this coller required for puppies also or to train gown up dogs ?
My dog Dosent like a halti. We put it on her and she wouldn t start freaking out! We give her treats and everything but she wouldn t stop. The only thing that worked was choke chain. Choke chains won’t do any damage as long as you use them properly :). I’m sure you know that since you’re a great trainer! 😀
Thank you for this! We’re working on training our recent adoption, but he is easily sidetracked by, well, everything, and is quite strong for his size. This is just what we were looking for!
