Hi Clair

At least Brandy got some exercise in the garden! I've been thinking about getting one for Smudge but you've kind of put me off! lol! Have read some posts that suggest they are a godsend when you actually manage to get out on your walk!

Hopefully someone will be able to offer you some practical advice here!

All the best,
Nicola.

HI Claire
We did say persevere!! Ha Ha I am not being funny I presume they have sold you the right size?? As it should not slip off that easy.
Try again tomorrow when you are less frustrated, and only a couple of times then give both her and yourself a break. I can assure you once you have both got the knack, you will be happy?? Good luck. meg

hi clair,
right just picked myself up after falling off the chair laughing :lol: meg is dead right. perseverance is the name of the game. the first day i tried with max, well tears and tantrums wasnt the word :cry: so i put it away and started a fresh the next day.it took me a couple of days of trying leaving trying leaving again :roll: if its to big for her try putting a couple of stitches in the bottom loop and making it smaller. i had to do that to max's. he still has a mad go at getting it off but gives up after a couple of swipes at it 8O
keep trying and good luck

Oh Clairiscrazy! sounds like a right benny hill chase!

I have a size 3 Halti for Scooby and it is a little large but at the rate he is growing it will fit him perfectly in no time.

I got a free attachment with mine that clips from the halti to the proper collar so that if they do manage to get it off that they aren't free and you are still attached to the collar. You can buy these links separately.

The trick with Scooby was to keep him moving forward (usually by some sort of treat held in front of him)

I hope it does work out for you. I think they are taken back by the strange sensation on their muzzle but should get used to it.

Good luck :?

Thats how we succeeded, Tracey - two pairs of hands and forward motion. Once he was moving Shadow could only get his paw up every now and again!
