Product Description

The Gentle Leader Calming Cap is a new behavior management aid that is designed to lessen a dog's anxiety or aggression in high-stress situations. The Calming Cap was designed by Trish King, CPDT CDBC and director of Behavior & Training at the Marin Humane Society, in collaboration with Lisa Moore, CPDT. The Cap was developed originally to ease hyperactivity in a dog that became agitated while traveling in a car. Since then, pet owners and professionals across the pet industry have used the Cap to quiet and calm anxious or excitable dogs. How It Works: The Calming Cap reduces the visual stimulus that makes a dog agitated by filtering his vision. The single-panel sheer fabric window makes the dog's vision indistinct, while allowing the dog to easily navigate his surroundings. Quality Features: Single-panel sheer fabric window offers enough vision to confidently navigate surroundings while reducing the provoking stimulus. Soft fabric and elastic fit provides maximum comfort. Two Velcro strips wrap around the collar allowing for easy on/off use. Available in four sizes! Petite - Most Toy Breeds, Puppies; Small - Shelties, Most Small Terriers, etc.; Medium - Cattle Dogs, Female German Shepherds & Rotties, etc.;Large - Mountain Dogs, Male German Shepherds & Rotties, etc.

I am a veterinary technician and a dog trainer. I heard about these in a dog training magazine and wanted to try it. I bought all 4 sizes and took them to work with me at the vet clinic. They make a huge difference in calming scared dogs! They reduce visual stimuli so make the dogs less reactive. Dogs who would normally be running scared and trying to jump off the table.....relax and are able to be worked with. Even the vets are calling for the calming caps and the clients don't seem to mind them since they are much more pleasant then using a muzzle. They can even be used with a muzzle if needed. I have been very surprised by how tolerate dogs are of the cap. Almost every dog has allowed me to put it on without any problems and has not tried to take it off. I don't even use the bottom loop anymore because the dog's don't try to take them off. I highly recommend this product and I am now using it with my dog training clients also.

I finally ordered one of these calming caps. It arrived today. I put it on my dog, who is deaf and would NOT let me cut her nails before, she fought like a wild animal. With the calming cap on, she laid her head in my lap and didn't care what I was doing to her feet. I've had this dog for over a year and today is the first time I was able to trim her nails myself instead of having to take her to the vet or a grooming salon. I am very glad I bought it!

I bought the cap on Amazon Gentle Leader Calming Cap LG PATTERNEDfor my anxiety racked rescue dog. I had high hopes given the previous reviews. Maybe it's just that my dog is very different...but it just hasn't worked out well for us. I primarily got it for car travel. He has a problem with things in motion...especially motorcycles, runners, bicycles, big trucks etc. When the calming cap was on, he could still hear, so it didn't help much with the big engine items. But more disconcerting, is that he can remove the calming cap almost immediately. By the time we're out of the driveway, it's off! Granted, his nickname is Houdini, since he manages to escape just about anything. However, this is just way too easy for him to maneuver out of. So, we're looking for another miracle device to help us calm this anxiety ridden pup.*****Dec 8 Ok, maybe we were a bit hasty. After 3 trainers, we are now at a top veterinary hospital. Along with medication, and a behavioral program, we are going to start using this again. If it works, I'll be happy to update!
