Looking for a Black Dog Wear - Infin8 dog halter size 3 or 4


 Share

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if anyone out there may have for sale (or may know where I can get) an Infin8 dog halter, size 3 or 4 (Black Dog Wear brand). Unfortunately they have discontinued the product and I have found it to be the only thing that works best for my dog with respect to fit, comfort and control. I have purchased the new version of the Infin8 (now called the haltermate) and really disappointed with it as they've changed the design – hence my relentless search for the original Infin8 halter. I’d be happy to purchase a used/second hand one if you have one lying around and no longer have a use for it….

@Boronia the haltermate is the new style, so the first link (holistic animal physio) are selling the newer style - I've noticed some places are still using the image from the Infin8 (older style) but they're selling the new haltermate version.  I have actually spoken to the lady at horse and hound and she confirmed that she doesn't have any :(

Have you tried the Black Dog people?  They would probably be interested in your feedback anyway .. and they might actually have an older version one somewhere.   Worth a try.

Thanks for the suggestion.... Yes, I actually have spoken to Black Dog Wear and unfortunately they didn't seem all that interested in my feedback.  Unfortunately they don't have any old stock.  They were too busy telling me how the new version is so much better (sorry - but I can see with my own eyes that it doesn't sit as well as the original halter, and my dog continually tries to get the new haltermate version off, he absolutely hates it.  Which tells me it's not comfortable for him at all)
I spoke with the same person at Black Dog twice and on each occasion she gave me two different reasons as to why they don't make the Infin8 anymore - which tells me that they're not being completely honest.
She initially told me that they might be able to make one up for me as apparently they do custom-make stuff - but then she got back and told me that some of the components have been discontinued so they couldn't make one up for me.  Umm, sorry - but I compared the new haltermate which I recently bought, with the Infin8 (original version) which my friend lent me; and they both have exactly the same components/fittings, the only difference is the design. So that in itself raised my suspicions.
I'm really disappointed to say the least :( Hence my relentless search for one

Oh that is really disappointing.   I haven't actually dealt with them for some years -- just because I haven't needed to ... but many hyears ago, I think they would have been more helpful.
