It kinda works. I have a basenji and I get the concept, but it seems like the engineering of the hoop needs to be reinforced. Maybe it’s just my dog.
It works!!! Huge help that our old lady is not hurting herself running into table legs. And the Halo can be removed for time she is being carried.
This is everything I hoped it would be. First of all, it is made of quality materials. Have not had any trouble with the harness slipping. The halo does not get in the way of sniffing the ground, eating or drinking. It seems to be very comfortable to wear and the halo protects my dog’s nose from repeatedly banging into things. He hits something, stops and adjusts his trajectory. No bruised nose. He explored our entire front yard (1 acre) full of trees and a dry creek bed. I highly recommend this product.
I wish that I did not have to write this negative review because I was so hoping this Halo for blind dogs would work. I have tried to be patient and keep trying for it to work for my 17 year old Shih Tzu who became totally blind last year. He is in very good shape for his age and although veterinarians say dogs can adapt to being blind, my poor dog has not been so lucky with that scenario. He is now having to be in a small limited space for he bangs into everything and it is not good for his comfort. This Halo was my only hope to let my dog walk freely around the house as he did in the past. The halo would not stay in place and ended up under my dogs front paws like a hula hoop all the time and I tried all the suggestions that could make it work with no success. The concept is good but I just could not get it to work for my dog.
Thank you for creating such a great product!! I just put it on my Brussels that has a heart murmur thyroid problems and was diagnosed with Cushing Disease a year and 4 months ago the Cushing turn her into a diabetic and 6 months later she went blind. She can now be independent again and gain her confidence back no problem with laying down sleeping or walking around with it at all. What a great invention you have made available Thank you from the bottom of my heart !!!!
Our little angel crossed the rainbow bridge today and traded this halo for a new one. It helped her in her last few days and we are grateful for that.
My sweet 15 year pup is blind and deaf but still enjoys walks, sniffs everything, rolls in the grass, loves a good meal. This harness really saves her face and lets her be more mobile without banging around the house. For reference she is a 20lb Boston Terrier and is wearing a medium.
He was born blind. Maybe that's the difference. He started having problems with damage to his eyes right around the age of 5. Thought I would give this halo a try. He was terrified of the velcro sound, the halo was always off-center (after many adjustments) and he would shake (like any dog does) and get beat up on both sides of his head. Not a pleasant experience for him. The product is well manufactured just doesn't work for him. In addition, I would like to say that Chewy.com had great customer support and refunded my money as soon as it was returned. I would recommend trying it for your dog because it might work well for them.
My 10 year old blind and deaf girl has spent her life waking around with her head down. This has not only affected her confidence, but her posture and spine too. The second I put the Muffin’s halo on her, she perked up. She now walks around with her head held high and extra bounce in her step. She feels safe and can now navigate the world with confidence. She has 3 Muffin’s Halos now so she can be fancy for different occasions.
It's very difficult to get the "wings" on straight and centered. So my dog walks around with the halo tipping to one side or the other. I find I don't put it on because it doesn't go on right. I will say the materials are quality. Maybe a little pricey. Once I do put it on, lopsided, my dog adapted to it quite quickly
