Halti harness
« on: October 31, 2011, 08:09:25 AM »
So Bob and I have tried quiet a few methods to stop Pnut from pulling on walks (flat buckle, martingale, choke, backpack) and none of them have stopped her pulling on walks. Two weeks ago we got a halti harness and it WORKS wonderfully. We havent seen other dogs on our walks, so we don't know how that will help with the lunging at other dogs but do far so good.

It works by turning her toward us when she starts pulling.

glad you guys found something that works!
Keep in mind, those harnesses don't really teach them NOT to pull. It just helps you manage and control the pulling.

once they learn they can get away with pulling, it takes A LOT of time and effort to undo it.

As for the lunging, carry LOTS and Lots of treats and work at a distance. No harness, collar or leash will fix that. It's all training.
Oh, also take her out ALONE with out Beas. She could be feeding off of his energy.

Ditto Jill...I can't because of my fibro allow a pup to pull so it is always something I work on.  If Pnut responds better to a toy you may try that.  Snookie is ball obcessed, but in particular squeaky balls.  I carry a small squeaker in my pocket and use that if she starts pulling and she returns to my side.  Willie uses food, but not because he pulls, because I train him on walks...I can drop the leash, put him in a sit stay and walk away...hw will not follow until I call, I also drop the leash and walk with him following in a heal.  When done I flip a treat for him...

I love the gentle leader body harness.  It works wonders on my guys. Mine flipped out with the head collar. Glad it is working well for Pnut.

It's amazing how much less she pulls.
