See I’m going to show you how to fit a halti.
A halti is real similar to a horse’s harness, it’s designed for dogs who pull or are a little
bit bigger. What it does is steer the head. This is not a muzzle. It doesn’t stop him
from eating, barking, biting, drinking, anything. It’s just designed to help us control our
dogs a little bit more. They work really well on the wire nose breeds. We have a fairly
in between breed here who likes to sniff the floor. Anytime that you are putting on a new
tool, what you want to do is have plenty of treats to keep it positive. What you want
to do is loop it over their nose as they are getting a treat. Stick it on their head. You
will always get a little bit if fussing and fidgeting. Stick it on, and I want to tighten
it up. There is a clasp on the back for tightening and you want it to sit at the base of the
skull fairly snug. This has got a little bit more leeway than other products. This one,
you can actually close their mouth if you pull it from the bottom. They use these in
aggression cases at times because we can actually close their mouth with this one. The way you
would hook it up to the leash is right on the bottom.
