Hey everyone! Just wondered if anyone has every used a haltie when walking their dog on the lead? I'm having a few problem with Tia on the lead, she pulls so bad when she see's someone/something she wants to go say hello to and she's so strong! I just want to gain a little control in these situations and have been recommended to invest in a haltie. Thanks, Michelle x

Thanks for your reply! I'm not sure what i'm going to do yet. It's good to know that i'm not the only one who (in the eyes of other people) can't control my dog! :roll: Good luck with Josie :)
Thanks for all your advice everyone!

I've heard that no-pull/anti-pll harnesses are pretty effective. They work kind of like a halti, but they fit like a reagular harness - around the body not the head/neck. The only difference is that the lead is attached infront of the dogs chest. So when they pull, they get turned around.
I've seen the no-pull harnesses in my local pet store, one of the staff there said that it would probably be a better option for Tia than a halti as she's not too keen on things on her face! I think i'm going to invest in one when I get payed at the end of the month. I'll let you all know how we get on :D
Just to up-date you all.....I bought Tia a Stop-pull harness today as I was in a situation last night when she saw a dog she wanted to go and say hello to and she almost pulled me over :shock:

This is what I got....

I've taken her out with it on today and WOW...... what an improvement already! She didn't pull much at all :D I think it will take her a while to get used to it though, she was walking rather slowly and kept having a shake every now and then but hopefully it wont take her too long. It was great being able to walk her without feeling nervous (which i'm ashamed to say I have been very nervous the last couple of weeks :oops: ) I felt totally relaxed today and even better...... I felt in control :D I hope this harness continues to work.....fingers crossed!
