Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a couple questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible...

What kind of restraint are you talking about?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
IT FITS OVER HER HEAD AND FACE AND FASTENS AROUND HER NECK. HER LEASH IS CLIPPED INTO A LOOP UNDER HER NECK.
Expert:  Lisa replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

Sounds to me like you're talking about a Gentle Leader or Halti type head harness.

No...these don't hurt her at all. Just make sure you take it off when you're not out walking, otherwise, it can rub all the hair off and be uncomfortable...but for a couple hours when walking, it's absolutely fine.

I hope this helps.
