Have an 8 month old pup who is a lovely friendly girl and whose training is going well except for walking on the lead!! She will happily walk to heel off the lead but on the lead, she pulls strongly. I have already had a broken rib and bruised kidney because she took off unexpectedly and caught me off balance ! I have worked hard with her but for some reason she does not want to grasp the art of loose lead walking !! I live in the UK and have been recommended to use a "dogmatic" headcollar but just wondering if anyone else has had experience of using one. I have tried one on her (the correct fitting) but being a poodle she was agile enough to put her paw through the loop under her chin and while she couldn t remove the headcollar she managed to get her foot caught. Is it just a matter of her getting used to it or can someone recommend an alternative product .
