Leather Figure-of-8 Dog halters are a really effective, simple way to control & lead your dog if it’s ‘puller’. The simple figure-of-8 design in one continuous length of leather, which allows it to be fully adjustable to fit the head & muzzle snuggly. Bridle leather is a natural breathable material and is far less likely to cause abrasion on the sensitive muzzle area than synthetic fabric halters. They are available in a choice of colours, 3 sizes and are made from best quality 4mm thick British bridle leather with solid brass or nickel-plated brass (silver) rings.
There is also an option to add a moveable leather stopper which allows you to restrict how far the halter can loosen once fitted on the dog’s head. They seem to be especially effective on dogs which are renowned pullers!
The design allows the dog to be lead from behind the ears rather than pulling on the muzzle. When fitting, adjust the position and tightness of the loop around the nose and then attach your lead to the ring at the end of the strap behind the ears. For some breeds, the nose loop can sit close to eyes so may not be suitable. Care is needed when you use a halter as the muzzle is quite sensitive – not all dogs will tolerate them!
