The hard part is deciding which headcollar type to use. In the past decade, I've used several different headcollars, including the Halti, the Gentle Leader, the Petmate AKC Headcollar, and the Holt. In my opinion, the Holt is the sturdiest, most comfortable, and most flexible headcollar of the whole bunch, and is a worthy successor to my previous favorite, the Halti.

The Halti was, previously, the best halter for a very simple reason: it had side-straps on either side of the dog's face that prevented the noseband from riding up a dog's face and digging into the dog's eyes. It also worked without cinching the dog's mouth shut, like the Gentle Leader. However, the noseband was not padded, and while I made my own homemade padding for the noseband, it was at least very wide to prevent the material from biting into the dog's skin (unlike the Gentle Leader). The Halti generally came only in black, though colors could be found online. The Halti, despite being designed to function loose (and allowing a dog the full use of its mouth), often made your dog look "vicious" by wearing a "muzzle", particularly in the black color. Prior to the holt, this was the most comfortable.Read more ›
The collar has a safety strap that is to be attached to your dog's regular collar to prevent your dog from getting loose if they pull the Holt off their head. It is important to read the manual that comes with the Holt Collar and to fit the collar to the animal correctly. You can view the manual at the manufactures web site.

Several dogs I have used this on did not like it at first (ok they loathed it entirely) but you just need to work with them in steps and they will get used to it.

Unfortanately Holt uses breeds instead of actual dimensions for sizing. Keep in mind that dogs of the same breed can very in size, if your dog is smaller or larger then average you might have to adjust the size up or down accordingly.
I was so impressed that I went to buy one for my other dog (a pit bull mix, about 55 pounds, loves to pull while walking). They were out of the size that I needed, so I bought the more expensive Gentle Leader instead. She did not like it at all. Where the Halti is not snug on the muzzle unless the dog pulls, the GL has to be somewhat snug - just due to its design. I did not like how the GL seemed to pass right under her eye sockets. I will be taking it back and getting the Halti.
The other feature that I liked about the Halti is that it has a semi-muzzle function to it. As the dog lunges forward, the band around the snout tightens - making it difficult for the dog to open its mouth. The GL doesn't do this at all.Read more ›
