When you’ve got a strong dog, products that help manage your pooch are absolute lifesavers. No matter how hard we try to get them under control, some dogs are just too strong. You need a helping hand to start with so that you can continue your training, without getting dragged halfway down the road, or annoying people commenting how your dog is taking you for a walk rather than the other way around. Here are four products that can help with dogs that seem to have superman strength.
If you’ve got a dog that nearly pulls your arm off when you take them for a walk, you will be amazed by how much of a different a Halti Headcollar can make. It’s as if when you put it on your dog loses half their strength. This is because it is specially designed to steer your dog’s head and control their direction of movement. It helps you to feel much more in control. It’s comfortable for your dog and makes your life oh so much easier.
The Halti Harness works in a similar way to the head collar, but you control your dog from their chest instead of their head. This enables you to control your dog’s movement and makes it easier to maneuver where they are going. The harness is ideal for dogs that won’t wear a headcollar and prefer to have a harness around their chest.
Sometimes simplicity wins. A simple harness can help give you back some control and stop your dog from pulling so much. Some harnesses that aren’t padded can dig into your dog’s skin and be a little uncomfortable for them. The Ancol Padded Harness has soft cushioning to provide extra comfort, as well as handy reflective stitching.
Manage your dog on walks in a safe and humane way with the Happy At Heel Harness. Designed by Caroline Spencer, it works by preventing pulling and lunging problems and putting you back in the driving seat. This harness comes with a lead and an instructional DVD which gives tips on how to use it properly. By having the lead attached across the front of the chest, when a dog pulls or lunges forward, it is effortlessly guided round to face you. You can then walk in your chosen direction, and Fido should come with you!
