training rope

Halter Training/Catch Rope

This is a wonderful tool for catching your llamas/alpacas and teaching them to wear a halter. The catch rope is made of nylon marine rope with a solid brass hook hand spliced in one end with a brass ring attached to the rope. This training rope can be fashioned into a pre-halter that is easier for young or frightened animals to accept.
In combination with the Clip Wand, the Training Rope is a safe, non-threatening way to catch up your animal. The Wand Catch Method is explained in detail in The Camelid Companion. Colour: white.

Handler Helper

A very nervous and jumpy group of suri alpacas at an Advanced Clinic helped us create a brand new tool! The Handler Helper is a modified short length of nylon webbing with the double-ring system. The Handler Helper is a great way to halter animals when you no longer need the length of the Catch/Training Rope. It is also extremely useful when working with volatile animals. Use the Handler Helper in a half-Catch Pen with groups of weanlings. Makes a great stocking stuffer for your favorite camelid enthusiast. The Handler Helper comes in assorted colours

Here's a Step-By-Step…
The Handler Helper is a quick easy way to steady the head for haltering without putting your arm around the neck and threatening the alpaca. (Instructions written standing on the LEFT side of the animal, but can be reversed.)

  • STEP1:
    Start with the Handler Helper in right front pocket. Catch up the animal with Midline Catch and steady the head by lightly cradling the jaw.

  • STEP 2:
    Then, bring the clip-end up to the back of the neck just behind the ears with your right hand and drop the hook end into the hand cradling the jaw.

  • STEP 3:
    Connect the clip to the ring and adjust if needed (just like the Catch Rope) to ensure the Handler Helper is snug and high up on the neck.
  • STEP 4: Once the Handler Helper is on you can step back from your alpaca to give him a break and some room without losing contact nor having to catch the animal again.

  • STEP 5: Proceed to haltering...Voila!
