A halty has more straps and looks more like a horse halter. I have not seen
the current halties, but, if they are anything like the old ones, they allow
you to tighten and loosen the band around the nose of the dog more instead
of just having it tight all the time. They are similar to a gentle leader in
that you cannot use them for corrections.

Oh I know this well. My first dog was a scavenger. What I would do is try to
get it out ASAP. then, if it was intact I'd use the food and rework to area
again. If not, I'd correct and move on but I would use food distractions in
obedience until the offending behavior would stop. Hope this helps and good
Luck. Oh, and I only allowed him to take treats from people's hands with my
permission and "take it"
command. What is a halti and how is it different from the Gentle Leader?
Like Dar, I used the GL with my second dog for speed control mainly. I was
glad to be introduced it it.
