February 26, 2010, Newsletter Issue #327: The Halti Collar

Tip of the Week

A halti collar is a nylon harness that attaches loosely around a dog's muzzle and snaps behind the ears. This collar operates on the idea that a dog's body must follow wherever his head goes. If you're using a halti collar, it allows you to gently apply pressure to direct where your dog's head points. In other words, you can direct your dog without pulling strongly on the leash. The halti collar has been used to train guide dogs in recent years due to its effectiveness as a training tool.
