Halti Optifit Headcollar
If your dog is prone to pulling on the lead, the Halti Optifit Headcollar is exactly what you’re looking for. Designed to provide an optimal fit, it can be adjusted to fit your dog’s face.
Unlike traditional dog headcollars, the Halti Optifit Headcollar has an adjustable noseband and cheek straps to ensure it fits a wide range of nose shapes. However, this design is not suitable for flat-nosed dogs.
The adjustable Halti Optifit Headcollar is designed to be comfortable while in use – with a cushioned noseband and reflective cheek straps that allow for visibility in low light.
The Halti Optifit Headcollar provides complete peace of mind. A strong safety clip on the front attaches to your dog’s collar during walks to keep you in control at all times.
For better no pull walking and training, pair with the Halti Training Lead. This dual-clip lead can attach to both the Optifit Headcollar and your dog’s walking collar for improved control and easier training.

Its important to remember that for your dog having a new training aid on their head / face will feel unusual for your dog and it is perfectly normal reaction for them to try and remove it. We encourage you to help your dog acclimatise to the headcollar by using positive associations methods. This can be through using treats to encourage your dog to place their nose into the headcollar and then placing on your dog for a few seconds, then taking the headcollar off and rewarding immediately. Build up slowly to give your dog time to adjust. If your dog is trying to take the headcollar off, try to distract them with a treat or their favourite toy to prevent this behaviour. You can find more information on using headcollars in our 'how-to' video on this product page.
It important with all training to be patient and consistent. As soon as your dog starts to pull, come to a halt. Only move forward again when the lead is slack. Reward success early on, by regularly treating your dog when they not pulling on the lead as this will encourage nice walking. For an extra helping hand we recommend using the Halti Training Lead with your Halti Headcollar or Harness so that you have more control when walking your dog.
We do not recommend leaving any type of body worn training aid on your dog for long periods of time and dogs should never be left unattended wearing products like headcollars, harnesses, and muzzles. This is from a safety and welfare perspective as well as there is a high possibility your dog may try to remove and chew the product.
We do not recommend using the Halti Headcollar, Optifit Headcollar, Front Control Harness or Halti No Pull Harness on dogs below the age of 9 months old. For dogs younger than this we recommend the Halti Walking Harness combined with a Halti Training Lead or Halti Walking Double Ended Lead. Halti Training Leads can be used for dogs of any age.
