Haltis or head harnesses are a silly waiste of time used to make humans feel like they are not being cruel to their dog. Bob is like a tornado on a head harness and will back right out of it no matter how it fits or how tight it is. He fights it.
A prong, fitted right and worn high on the neck, bob will heal and act like a
Gentleman on a leash. It puts ME in full control of an otherwise out of control beast.
I have also heard that because pitbulls have been known to fight haltis and head harnesses, your dog can end up really hurting itself. I would typically never put my pit in a head harness, but I do have one pit bull mix I use it on. He is way different from most pitbulls though, he's not much of a 'go-getter'. For him the head harness works great. For me I knew a choke or prong collar would break his spirit so a head harness was a much better choice for him. A lot about picking the right training tool, is to know your dog.

rmats727 is an unknown quantity at this point
Harness vs. choker

I walk my sons dog (Ruca) twice a day. He pulls her on his long board which causes her to constantly pull me on our walks. Up until this morning I was using a choker. Today I used a harness. She was a totally different animal. Almost no pull and very happy. Iím not sure why but I love it because I hated when the choker tightened (although she has a strong neck). Iím not sure if all the walks with the choker helped but the harness is her preferred method.

Again, the point of a check chain is not to choke the dog. With strong or stubborn dogs they will simply choke themselves out before they listen to you. The point is to give a short, sharp correction and release the tension again.
