|Moira does well with her Easy Walk Harness. Some posters have indicated they like the Sensation line better, but this was available locally and on clearance - my kind of deal! Does it stop her from lunging with her new dog reactivity? No, but it allows me to control her without hurting her.
I would never use a head collar on a dog who may lunge (Sasha & Moira). There have been autopsies done on dogs who used them and their necks were damaged. If you do want a head collar, my previous dogs said the Gentle Leader was better than the Halti.
The WalMart and the Sporn Anti Pull did nothing for Sasha and Moira. The urge to pull overrode any pain the straps caused on the underarm area. Anything that you hook in the back just gives them permission to pull if they are so inclined. Mia never did, nor has Lily. Kylee - about a block on a Gentle Leader, then switched to a martingale and she was good to go.
BTW, the German Shorthair who attacked Moira was out tonight slamming himself at her so hard that he was choking repeatedly, but his collar held. Moira handled it well. Needless to say she got a piece of bacon. Good girl, Moira Mae!
