Time should be taken when accustoming a dog to the HALTI Optifit, in order to create a positive association with it.
Initially, place the nose-band flat in your hand and feed your dog treats, so that he learns to happily put his nose through it.
Once your dog is used to the nose-band, you can secure the neck section so that it is snug, but not too tight.
To ensure that your dog cannot pull the nose-band back over his nose, slide the camlock towards the chin and lock. It is important that the camlock is not so high that it restricts the ability for your dog to pant, eat or open it's mouth.
When first using the HALTI Optifit, ensure that you continually praise and reward your dog with treats to help distract him and ensure that it is a rewarding experience.
