Black Dog Training Halter

Who’s walking who?
This classic style training halter has been the halter of choice for trainers for many years. The dynamic design allows the halter to move as the dog moves, leaving the Nose Bridge strap to sit comfortably in the same position, this means it doesn’t tend to ride up close to the dog’s eyes and the dog is more content while wearing the Halter.
Dogs who pull on the lead are behaving instinctively, but they can cause themselves (and their handlers) injury. We recommend training your dog to walk on a loose leash. Training halters are a great tool, as they allow you to train leash manners using gentle methods. When combined with the right technique, these halters transform the most persistent puller into a well-mannered companion.
The Noseband and Cords on the Training Halter allow for a large adjustment, so we base the sizing on a dog’s neck measurement. Use a soft tape measure and place it around your dog’s neck, up close behind the ears. Take a snug to tight neck measurement.
Important: If your dog fits between 2 sizes, generally select the smaller size, unless you are fitting a growing dog, in which case you might go for the larger size to allow for future growth.
Check your dog’s neck measurement against the chart below, to select the appropriate size.
|Training Halter Size||Min (cm)||to||Max (cm)|
|Mini||20 (cm)||to||35 (cm)|
|Small||27 (cm)||to||37 (cm)|
|Medium||35 (cm)||to||52 (cm)|
|Large||43 (cm)||to||68 (cm)|
|Extra-Large||58 (cm)||to||94 (cm)|
Fitting the training halter is simple…
- Adjust the Neck Strap to fit (a snug fit high on the neck is best). Take the Halter off again.
- Slide the Nose Strap over the dog’s muzzle (reward the dog with a little treat to ease any concerns).
- Buckle the Neck Strap.
- Pull down on the Lead Ring (this adjusts the Training Halter to fit the dog’s face).
- Slide the cord lock to about 1cm below the D Ring under the dog’s chin
- Attach a lead, and your dog is ready to go.
When first introducing your dog to a training halter, we recommend using a double-ended lead so that your dog is secure and to allow you to desensitise your dog to the halter. If you need help teaching your dog to walk nicely on the lead, you might be interested in our dog training services.
