I have tried this leash wrapping technique to reduce pulling, but I still prefer a halti headcollar or a wonder walker harness over this. I feel that it does not work as well as other methods.

What is the wonder walker?  I'll have to google.  My bloodhound is C_R_A_Z_Y on leash and she has the strength of a bull, lol.

I gave it a try last night during our walk and she didn't pull as much, but she still pulled enough for me to say this wasn't really effective.  She didn't seem to respond to it at all, and in fact the leash corrections work better and I couldn't do that with the leash in this position.  Oh well, I may try the halti collar.  Eventually she will be trained and it won't be an issue but in the meantime she is killing my hands and nearly dragging me to the ground at times (especially passing another dog or a cat).  She not going nutso and barking, but she really wants to go"that" way, lol.

She is my love! You can see a picture of her in the Show and Tell post. We got her last April from a shelter, she is a total sweetheart :)

That trick has been around forever. When I used to volunteer for Animal Control up in NY they would tell me to do that. I don't think it works very well.

There's a take on this that some people use for tracking... it's the Mendota EZ trainer   

We used it.  It helped, but didn't quite work like we'd hoped.  A fursaver modified to fit snugly up around the ears works best for me.

I'm going to try this.  Bella is a really sweet dog, she is very smart and has learned every trick I've tried to teach her so far (sometimes within a day or less)  EXCEPT leash walking.  Every walk is a struggle, especially since its been snowing here and I haven't been able to go on a huge number of practice walks.  I've tried the gentle leader and the easy walker harness.  Neither are super effective with the pulling.  I will try this trick on our next walk and let you know how it goes.  :)

This looks interesting.  Thanks for sharing!
