I have used the Halti on my guy since he was a puppy. He is a three year old now. Although he really doesn't need the correction of the halti any longer, I like the control it gives me in the event we get into a jam.
My guy is aloof, and doesn't care for folks to come and fawn all over him. He doesn't react, he just doesn't care for it. I have found that using the halti, people do mistake it for a muzzle and will not approach for unwanted petting.
