Halti works in a similar way to a harness you would use for a horse; turning the dogs head as a way to control them. Dogs don’t like to pull against the halti, as it brings there snot down towards their chest as they pull.
It doesn’t hurt them at all; it is just uncomfortable and makes it very hard to pull with their head downwards.
Halti’s come in a range of sizes from dogs as little as Maltese’s to dogs as bug as Mastiffs and Great Danes.
