What makes the K9 Bridle different?
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.
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.
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.
