This one has an additional safety leash clip, to clip to collar, which is part of why we wanted it. We bought this one as its adjustable and we want to teach our 7 month old puppy to walk, as she is terrible if she just has collar and leash. Well this face halter claims it GUARANTEES to stop your dog form pulling, but that is not the case at all. She still pulls really REALLY hard with this one. She also gets her paws stuck on the safety leash clip part they attaches to the collar . That part should be adjustable too but it is not. This is just not a good product, and we will have to try another brand.
It was a little difficult to get the plastic adjustment to snap closed. My little dog barks & growls at other dogs. This halti makes it easy to get her attention & correct her. Sometimes she puts her head to the ground & slips out of other collars & harnesses. When she does this she gets her mouth over the halti. The extension between the clip for the leash & the clip that attaches back to the collar is too long. She steps into it when we walk.
I had a different head collar that my dog definitely was not thrilled with. She would pull her head down towards the ground and try to get it off. She seems to like this one. She never tried to get it off.
Our dog pulled so much that it was impossible to walk him. Now that he has the OptiFit Headcollar he doesn't pull. The instructions to fit him were easy to follow. Padded nosepad is a plus. The safety link is added assurance that he his collar will stay attached to the leash if in the unlikely event the headcollar comes off. I checked other brands of head collars and most do not have the safety link.
This Headcollar is an incredible tool for teaching your dog to walk with you instead of dragging you! I had instant results and I feel using this is much more gentle on my dog. I highly recommend it!
I tried using this to teach my heeler not to pull. Being the determined dog he is, I was unable to even take him for a walk with it. He is able to slip out of the nose strap fairly easily, unless I would make it inhumanely tight. Yes, I measured and got the appropriate size. I like the product, but alas, it is still not the solution I needed to command my heeler on walks. He is very bothered by this collar and will paw at the nose strap as long as it takes in order to get it off.
After adjusting according to the instructions and making sure everything was fitting the dog as it was supposed to, I hooked the leash. She had the harness off and hanging between her leash and collar before we even made it outside.
Took our dog for a few walks with it, then it fell apart. good thing i had a harness on to clip into otherwise he may have been hit by a car.
I measured my dog according to the instructions and she is almost 18 inch neck so I got the medium 15-20 inch neck and it doesn’t fit even when it’s fully extended around her and I even tried my other dog that is a 16 1/2 inch neck and doesn’t fit her either then I printed the measuring tape just to see if mine was wrong and says the exact same thing. So I’m upset cuz I was really looking forward to trying this out I’ve heard great things but disappointed that the sizing it all wrong
I had high hopes for this when I heard it was more adjustable than the original model. Turns out it was actually worse. It kept sliding up into my dog's eyes so I couldn't use it.
