DONT FORGET!

The K9 bridle works so well because it rests at the base of the skull, activating natural pressure points.

Not half way down the neck.

 

 

How to Fit the K9 Bridle

How to train a dog to accept a Head Halter

What makes the K9 Bridle different?K9 bridle on dog

Do not confuse the K9 Bridle with other training halters available. Have you seen dogs wearing the head collars that pull the dog’s head around and push up into their eyes? They interfere with their mouths causing sores, and they look like muzzles. Poor dogs. The major design flaw with those problem head collars is that the point of control is from under the chin which twists the dogs head to the side and can cause severe vertebral damage. They don't even help with your dog pulling, because the dog soon learns that he can still pull ahead if he tilts his head to the side. A head collar that was controlled from under the chin would be fine if your dog was 6 feet tall!

Unlike most other training halters, the K9 Bridle works from the back of the neck, exactly where you need to have control.

The K9 Bridle works on a principal similar to a bit-less bridle for horses, so if that will stop a horse it can also stop a dog. When the lead is tightened, gentle pressure is applied to the front of the face and tells the dog “NO”. The dog easily understands this clear and precise command. The rings at the back of the head are unique to the K9 Bridle and activate the natural pressure points mother dogs use to calm their puppies. Give it ago yourself! massage your dog gently at the very base of his skull, right behind the ears. See how he relaxes and responds calmly. It's a natural instinctive communication method that no other head collar utilises!

With the K9 Bridle, your dog soon learns that when he moves forward from the 'heel' or 'close' position the bridle will apply slight pressure and remind him where he should be. 

Keeping in mind that the aim is to have calm, happy walks. While training your dog, commands given through the lead should be small tugs to apply gentle pressure as a reminder. NOT a strong pull or yank. As with all leads, if the owner or walker pulls aggressively, it will confuse and initiate panic for your dog, physiologically called the "flight or fight" response. Your dog will only begin to try pull away more, You must not get into a fight with him or make him afraid of the bridle. 
It is very much a command and instant reward scenario. You give the small command, he responds, and you instantly reward that response with a slack lead. While the dog is at "heel" the lead should always be slack and applying no contact whatever. Where as if they pull forward, they are reminded gently but firmly in a way they understand to return to the 'heel' position. 

It is also important to remember that having something on his face might be a new and potentially frightening experience for your dog. Remember the 'fight or flight'? Distract his focus from the bridle with a favourite toy or treat. Only reward acceptance of the bridle, and he'll soon love the bridle!

You may also find that the K9 Bridle can help with aggressive behaviour. 

Because eye contact is lowered briefly when a command is given this can defuse a confrontation with other dogs. Not to mention those pressure points keep your dog happy and relaxed.

There is also a strap under the chin attached to the collar as a safety device. Should the unthinkable happen and your dog managed to slip the bridle off their nose, you are still attached to your dog. Please note, it will only slip off if the bridle is far too large for your dog or it needs to be adjusted by the buckle on it. Go ahead and try it now!
