Some dogs never do get use to them. Most dogs do take time to get adjusted to them. You need to take it slow and make the head collar a good thing. Lots of treats. I lucked out with my dane, she took to it right away. If you can not get your dog to accept it try a front hooking harness. They work well too. The head collar(or harness) will not teach your dog not to pull. You still need to work on loose leash walking. I use the head collar mostly as a safety thing, my girl is strong and there is no way I could hold her back if she really wanted to go. She does walk well most of the time and really only pulls when she forgets. Like if she sees another dog and I don't redirect her. We also work on LLW most days.

Also, when walking two dogs you can try a coupler. It works best if one dog walks slower, it helps to slow the faster dog down.
