Dog halters are a really effective, simple way to control & lead your dog if it's 'puller'. One continuous length of leather configured as a simple figure-of-8 design allows it to be fully adjustable to fit the head & muzzle. They are available in a choice of colours, 3 sizes and are made from best quality British bridle leather with solid brass or nickel rings.
They seem to be especially effective on dogs which are reknowned pullers! The design differs from other halters in that it allows the dog to be lead from behind the ears rather than pulling sideways on the muzzle.
The Small/Med is made in 1/2″ (12mm) width British bridle leather, the Med/Large size is available in both 12mm and 16mm widths and the Large/Ex Large size is in 5/8″ (16mm) width.
- Small/Med size fits terrier type up to small spaniels, total length of leather (excl. rings) is 34" (86cm)
- Med/Large size fits bigger breeds like Springers, Labradors, GSDs etc, total length of leather (excl. rings) is 43" (109cm)
- Large/Ex Large size is suitable for very large breeds like Mastiffs, St Bernards etc, total length of leather (excl. rings) is 50" (127cm)
They are available in right & left-handed versions depending which side your dog walks, so if your dog walks on your left, please order Left-hand; if your dog walks on your right side, please order Right-hand. An optional leather stopper can be added to control the amount of looseness on the halter, just slide the stopper up or down the strap to tighten or loosen.
Try using a tape or piece of string in these lengths looped into a figure of eight to find the most suitable size - you will need a little extra length to allow the loop behind the ears to loosen when the dog is not pulling and also to allow for fitting and removing the halter comfortably.
