The K9 Bridle is the best headcollar for stopping dogs pulling on the lead. It attaches at the back of the neck so keeps the dog’s spine in line and does not twist the neck. The strap at the back tightens when the dog pulls but immediately releases when it stops pulling. This video shows how the bridle should be fitted at the back of the head.

How the K9 Bridle dog head collar works; basic principles and how to use the bridle to stop dogs pulling on the lead.
This video explains how the bridle should be used to very gently check the dog, keeping the lead slack as much as possible. The K9 Bridle can help with aggression issues by dipping the nose slightly, briefly averting eye contact from other dogs. Always be aware that having something on the dog’s face for the first time can be frightening and it’s important to get the dog used to the head collar gradually, building up a positive association with the bridle.

Demonstrating how we trained Peach the Rottweiler to accept the k9 bridle despite her initial dislike of the unusual feeling of the head collar on her face. The video shows how we helped to build up a positive association for Peach with the bridle so that, by the end of the video, she was much happier and her owner could safely use it to stop this lovely rottweiler from pulling on the lead.
Video to show how we introduced a very strong English Setter to the K9 Bridle. This lovely boy took to it very well and had stopped pulling on the lead and was walking nicely by his owner’s side within minutes.
Cookie, an extremely strong labrador retriever being introduced to the k9 bridle to stop her pulling on the lead. We recommend using small half-checks on the lead when the dog is too far in front so that they can understand when they are in the wrong place. Once cookie is walking nicely the lead is completely slack.
Some dogs take longer to get used to the k9 bridle than others. Young dogs can need a bit of extra support and dogs using head collars for the first time may not like the new sensation of the bridle on their face. This video explains how to help your dog build up a positive association with the bridle so that they are not worried by its use. It is worth spending a bit more time with these dogs to ensure that they are happy before taking them out on the lead for the first time.
