my personal opinion is, if you just have a puller, one that doesnt lunge at ALL then the canny collar is a good option, if they DO lunge then i use a GL :)
i too dont like the haltis as they ride up on the eyes.

The canny collars have arrived - very good fit with room to grow!! Love the way they revert back to just a collar.

Had a wonder round the garden in turn to introduce them - so far so good.
Doesn't seem to go near Baileys eye - but he wasn't pulling so we'll see how he gets on out in public when he's excited!!
Going out and about loads over the weekend so it should be a good tester for all 3 of them!!

Yasmin thanks for the tip!! good job

Canny collars worked dancing

Took a bit of getting used to putting them on but had the hang of it by the 3rd walk over the weekend.

I think we may have found the best thing for us and the girls fingers crossed (oooh a new smiley - had to use it!! )

No they don't, only reason I know is last time we where there a lady was picking up her dog after an op and asked the receptionist to call a cab for her. They tried 5 different cab companies and none of them wanted a post op dog in their cab!

I don't know what she did in the end, poor woman.

I will probably just walk him down to the vets, it's not too far and he likes to walk.

I've just bought a halti (think it may be a tad too big) but OMG! It was like walking a different dog! Smiffy has really been doing my head in with his pulling lately, absolutely nothing has been working. Tried changing direction when he pulls, making him sit to interrupt the walk, etc but as soon as you start walking again, he'd be straight back to pulling. So difficult to control properly when I'm walking him and Rudi, as Rudi is getting the "punishment" when she's not doing anything wrong!
The halti is working so far! But now I've seen this post I will look at the Gentle Leaders and canny ones too.
I am NOT going back to how we were!!!

Glad it is working for you Kelly. It should not take him too long to get the message about pulling

Great to hear that it's made a difference for you, and if the Halti works for you I would stick with it!
