The basic principle behind this head collar is simple enough: control your dog's head and the body will follow. And, as an added bonus, little or no physical force or strength is needed to attain higher levels of control. Made exclusively for PetSmart.
Training manual included.
Fitting the Halti: Hold your Halti by the noseband. Halti assumes the shape of your dog's head, with the two rings under his chin. The collar section is adjustable using the slide. When the buckle
is securely closed it should fit your dog's neck. The adjustment of the collar section is critical so that it can neither slip over the head nor be so light to cause discomfort. A two finger slackness is the best guide.
Having fitted the Halti, see where the noseband naturally sits. It should be down the nose and away from his eyes. When you
tighten the under-chin strap by the metal ring, it probably just touches his jowls. When you release pressure on the chin strap,
make sure your dog can fully open his mouth without restriction.
Attach the lead and your career with dog training the Halti way
Until your dog gets used to his Halti and you are used to fitting it properly, there is a small risk that he might back out of it, pulling the collar section over his head just as with a conventional collar. Be careful to guard against this by
ensuring that the collar section is tight enough. No more than 2-3 fingers should fit under the collar. Check to make sure
the collar cannot slip over his head.
