Questions & Answers

10 Customer Questions

why is this used at the back of the dogs head rather than at the side?
Answer by ChewyJul 25, 2018
This product offers gentle guidance behind your dog's shoulders not his face to instantly stop your dog from pulling while giving him comfort.

Will this product prevent a dog from snapping or biting?
Answer by ChewyJul 06, 2018
This halter was not designed to prevent biting. This product is best used for extreme leash pullers.

What is the trick to getting your 5month old Lab pup used to this collar?
Answer by ChewyFeb 15, 2018
The more your pet uses the head collar the more adjusted they will become.

I have an 80 pound dog. If he pulls hard will the leash pop open or come undone in anyway?
Answer by ChewyMar 25, 2018
This halter is proven to reduce pulling and will hold up against your dog's efforts to break free.

This things works wonders! LOVE IT!

The dog we adopted is about 9 months old, and has had NO training whatsoever. Walks with her became dangerous, as she has almost pulled me from my feet, and I'm no spring chicken. I used everything I could find to stop her from pulling me when she would freak out or see a bunny. Nothing worked, and I ended up with sore shoulders and jawline, from holding her back and gritting my teeth. I began to hate walks with her. I saw this, and bought it. It has worked wonders. She hates it, and tries to get it off, but by adjusting the top spring-loaded lock, she can't, and if I keep walking, she has to stop fighting it or she will fall on her head. (Which, she in her stubborn, teen-age anger, has done several times.) Walks are now pleasant and fun. I no longer worry about being drug anywhere, as she has tried a few times, and lack of oxygen from pulling so hard has made her stop and walk properly. (No effort on my part- just letting her pull until she can't breathe well.) I wish I had had this halter a month ago. Now I can control my dog, don't need to fear getting hurt, and am letting my dog know that she can't outsmart me, which is something she tries to do at any time she can.

Dog may escape

My dog was able to remove this four times during the first time I walked her with it on. Yes, it was fitted properly. When she was able to remove it, she was free to do as she pleased. It is not attached to your dog's other collar as other head harnesses are so when it comes off your dog is free to do whatever it wants

I have 2 80lb husky mixes and face harnesses have changed the game for me. I've tried 3 other gentle leads and these are without a doubt the best quality. My dogs are trained to walk with the strap over their noses but they would still sometimes try and pull them off. Not with these. They fit much better and do not rub like the ones in the past.

not for me

The collar itself is quite heavy. Even for a large dog. Looking at all the loops and strings, it seems too complicated if it should come apart. Not right for me or my clients.

works great!

My 50 lb beagle/sheppard mix would pull like a tank on our daily walks. This halter works perfectly. It immediately stopped the pulling behaviour without harming my dog.

I will never use a different head collar. Gives me 100% control and I dont have to fight with having the clip being under the chin, perfect for far distance walking and on a heel. I was injured and couldnt walk my dog because he pulled and was a large breed puppy and this stops it. I still use the same one 3 years later for every day walks.

Flaw in halter

Cannot use to rate this halter. The strap from chin to ring for leash was not put through its ring. It cannot hold strap over nose. I need to return the item.

Not for my cray gurl

With a very reactive dog they can get completely loose it's not attached to the collar.

My dog HATES this halter!

My dog refuses to leave the strap over her nose and fights it the whole time it's on until she succeeds. Returning this item...

Very Disappointed

I saw all the reviews and got my hopes up but this harness just didn’t work out like I’d hoped. My dog still pulls with it!
