If your dog is a particularly determined or practised puller, consider a variation on the No-Pull Harness such as Stylish Hound’s Ruff n’ Tuff Harness. It is designed with a martingale function at the front to give you extra control. When your dog pulls, the martingale function tightens so the harness guides your dog back towards you.
For dogs who are particularly large and strong, or dogs who pull/bounce/lunge toward people/dogs/cars/etc, there is also the option of training your dog to walk on a head collar (aka head halter). As the name suggests, it is a type of ‘collar’ which sits on your dog’s muzzle and attaches by a strap behind their head. The lead clips beneath the chin, allowing you to control the direction your dog faces. This can be a useful tool to assist with training and to allow a strong dog to be walked safely, however it requires committed training to use. If your dog has not been trained to wear a halter, they will find it uncomfortable and are likely to rub it off, rendering it ineffective. Please check our resource centre before using to learn how to pleasantly introduce your dog to the Stylish Hound Halter.
(Please note: although head halters can be a useful safety and training tool for dogs who display reactivity or aggression on walks, they are NOT dog muzzles and will not prevent bites.)
