Following on from my thread the other week regarding my young Labxcollie collie that pulls on the lead, I have decided to try another harness or head collar as I just can't control him, I'm worried he will pull me over and every attempt to train him to walk to heal has failed.

At the moment we have a a halti head collar, I have tried a ezzydog harness ( made it 10 times worse ), can anyone recommend something to give me more control?

One of these Perfect Fit and a double ended lead. I manage my huge Lab on one.

My trainer also recommends the perfect fit and a double ended lead.

Our trainer suggested a Gencon, our staffy walks perfectly on it.

We use a dogmatic headcollar on our lab, we used the perfect fit harness with a double ended training lead for a while but she worked out how to pull in to it despite using it as per instructions. She has a huge prey drive (working lab) and we find the dogmatic plus click and treat for loose leash walking makes walking her much easier (and safer)

I use a Canny Collar on my Lab. It works very well and she seems to accept it. She hated the Haltie.
