My current dogs are all good on the lead but I had one in the past who pulled like a steam train on walks. Funny boy he was, because I used to trial him in obedience and he knew exactly what the word "heel" meant, but he didn't think it applied to leisure activities!
I tried a few of the head halters and found most of them to be effective, but the one I liked the best was the Sporn halter. It's a slightly different design to the others in that its a collar with a padded nose piece that runs around the collar threaded through loops. I liked it because it was the most comfortable on the dog and if he got the idea not to pull, I could easily slip the nose piece down so he'd just wear it as a collar. Start pulling, and I slipped it straight back on.
It also has the lead attachment at the back of the neck rather than the front.
