The Haltermate is Black Dog's new figure 8 head halter.
It is our Second Generation figure 8 halter – we re-designed the Infin8 and it has evolved into the Haltermate.
It is easier to fit and adjust, yet keeps all the great features which made the original comfortable and effective. It sits securely and will not ride up into your dog's eyes, the lead attaches at the back and dogs respond quickly and easily to lead pressure.
But the Haltermate is even better – it can be left on your dog without a lead attached, it is simple to adjust and sits centered on the dog's neck. We've retained all the great features of the Infin8, without any of the hard bits. The Haltermate is essentially a Flat Collar with a Martingale Loop and Noseband attached.
Your lead is clipped at the back of the dog's neck, so it feels just like a normal collar and the noseband only tightens when the dog pulls. This gives a very clear On/Off signal, so your dog will respond quickly and learn quickly, even to light pressure on the lead. And no matter how the lead is used, the nosebend will not ride up into the dog's eyes. The Haltermate is extremely effective in calming a pulling, boisterous dog, without the need for harsh corrections or gruff training techniques.
Fitting is easy – clip the collar on, then wrap the noseband 1.. 2.. 3…
When you first get your Haltermate, take a little time to read the instructions and to understand the full possibilities of this halter. It won't be long before you and your dog will be enjoying walks, with your dog accepting and respecting your fingertip control.
