Product Description

More than two million dog owners have found the secret to stress-free walks. Immediately eliminates pulling on the leash. With the Gentle Leader, when you steer the dog's nose, you steer the dog's body. It's virtually impossible for a dog to drag you down the street when its head is turned to face you. Because it is scientifically designed to work with your dog's natural instincts to control unwanted behavior, results occur in minutes - not weeks. Large fits dogs 60 - 130lbs.

Gentle Leader Headcollar

Millions of dog owners today enjoy the benefits of stress-free walks thanks to the Gentle Leader Headcollar. Designed so that owners can communicate with their pet in a way they instinctively understand, the Gentle Leader painlessly and effectively removes the dog’s natural tendency to pull by placing gentle pressure on calming points and eliminating uncomfortable pressure on the throat. In addition to reducing a dog’s desire to pull away, the Gentle Leader is also a very effective tool in combating lunging, jumping, excessive barking and helping to calm an aggressive and/or anxious animal.

Why is a Gentle Leader the best choice? Here are just of few of the reasons why…

Stops leash pulling…an extremely common problem that spans all breeds, ages, and activity levels and leaves both owners and dogs frustrated.
Controls unwanted behaviors …general aggression and dog-on-dog aggressive behavior, anxiety issues, and a wide range of compulsive disorders.
Fully adjustable…both neck strap and nose loop can be adjusted independently to create a custom fit.
Immediate results…most dogs acclimate within minutes and respond very quickly.
Lifetime guarantee.

How does a Gentle Leader compare to other halter-like products?

More effective…the Gentle Leader allows owners to communicate with their pet in a way that dogs instinctively understand. The nose loop encircles the dog’s muzzle and applies light pressure in the same manner in which lead dogs naturally communicate with dogs lower in rank. Because of the placement of the nose loop, the dog immediately understands its place in the hierarchy and recognizes the owner as the leader.
Can be custom fit…the Gentle Leader is the only headcollar with a fully adjustable nose loop. Once fitted properly, dogs can wear a Gentle Leader for up to 3x longer than other head halters…as long as 16 hours…and cannot paw it off.
Unmatched versatility…the Gentle Leader can be used effectively to control unwanted behaviors ranging from leash pulling and lunging to barking, jumping, chasing, digging and begging; doesn’t need safety straps or double-leashing; and can quickly convert to a regular collar.
Fashionable…the Gentle Leader can be purchased in a variety of colors.

Straps are made of supple nylon:

  • Won’t choke…pressure is applied at the back of the neck vs. the front of the throat.
  • Not a muzzle…when fitted properly a dog can open its mouth to eat, drink, pant, fetch, and bark.
  • Can be used with dogs eight (8) weeks of age or older.
  • Can be worn up to 18 hours/day.

Watched the video, and set up just as instructions said, and it worked like a charm!
Rebecca L Aselstine
My dog is better off leash than on-leash and the Gentle Leader really helps the walk to be more enjoyable and keeps her from pulling so much.
C. Brillhart
Walking with the collars on is easy, and the dogs can easily open their mouths and drink, bark, or take treats.

This thing is AWESOME!! I have a very boisterous 136 lb male Great Dane. Even though he has been through obedience school, and obeys very well on command while indoors, it is still VERY difficult to control him when he gets excited on walks. Put simply: the dog is much bigger & much stronger than I am & as is common with Danes, does not realize his size or strength. With just one lurch from his excitement over a squirrel (dog, butterfly...whatever the stimulus is for that day), he can & has pulled me to the ground. Believe me: we've tried everything to remedy this & all else has failed. After expressing concern to our Veterinarian, he suggested that I purchase the Gentle Leader. It was the best Vet advice I've been given to date. I no longer risk getting pulled to the ground, or becoming a human kite everytime we go out. Maddox now walks right beside me, and listens to my commands with just a very, very gentle pull to the leash. His mouth is able to open freely & he is even able to take treats while the collar is on his head. Since he's more obedient, we go out more & for longer & more exciting excursions each time. This makes Maddox a very happy puppy.

If you buy this, definitely watch the DVD. Don't assume that you can just put it together & train your dog yourself. There are some really helpful & important tips on how you should handle your dog while on the leash. These tips *could* make or break your dog's response to the collar. Also, I do recommend going to a professional obedience school if your dog has obedience problems. Especially if you are dealing with a large dog. The Gentle Leader has been a phenomenal supplemental tool for us in the areas that could not be cured with regular obedience training: such as going on walks.

Now, they even have them in the south!

The Gentle Leader should not be confused with other head collars like the Halti. It is FAR superior for any dog breed or temperament.

I've trained both my Golden Retrievers as well as the dogs of several relatives and many friends over the past six years using the Gentle Leader. With the possible exception of toy breeds, this is a God-send for any dog owner with a rambunctious, head-strong or hard to handle canine or if you just wants more control without the extra work and even trauma associated with neck collars in general.

I had my first Gentle Leader dog and then my second, walking and STAYING at heel, sitting automatically upon stopping, turning both left & right and no longer lunging, pulling, jumping or straying...and all within less than 15 minutes for EACH dog! Golden Retrievers are, of course, wonderfully easy and willing to train anyway, but this was SO incredibly fast, it was almost like watching some magic trick being performed.

It was my vet at Fort Lewis, WA who first taught me how to fit the collar and use it. Application is simple once you see it done for the first time. Just place the nose strap short of the flesh on the nose (allowing the dog to breathe, eat, drink and even carry items) and tightten the head strap about one finger tight behind the ears (base of the head, really). This gives you control (nose strap) and the dog a sense of well-being (head strap). Nothing at all is on the dogs neck or throat. I strongly encourage you to have someone experienced with the Gentle Leader's use show you hot to fit it properly the first time.

For all dogs I've since trained or assisted in their training there has been the short-lived "leader dance".

I have used this particular head collar on four different dogs with mixed results. Please note that all dogs were slowly and carefully desensitized to the Gentle Leader head collar, as directed by trainers and the training materials included with the head collar.

- The first was a dog-reactive dog.
The collar did discourage pulling under low stress conditions and made pulling less painful. It allowed for greater control of the dog. However, if the dog was not kept soundly distracted he would return to fussing over the nose strap. He became so frustrated by the collar that he would rub his face on the concrete, claw at the nose strap, and come away bleeding. I returned to desensitizing him to the collar, assuming I had not given him enough time to adjust. I found myself spending more time training him to accept the collar than working on modifying his unwanted behaviors.
- The second dog was a fearful dog.
The dog would completely shut down whenever he wore the collar away from his safe zone. We spent more time trying to desensitize him to wearing the collar outside of his safe zone. Because he would shut down and stop responding we could not get any results.
- The third dog was a confident, social dog.
This particular dog had pulled his whole life. To my knowledge, no one had attempted to discourage the pulling behavior. I noticed improvement as soon as we left the yard. It didn't just lessen the pulling, it stopped it.
- The fourth was an untrained and social puppy.
Not accustomed to rules or boundaries, the puppy was constantly testing the limits of the collar. If he was not properly engaged in training he would return to pawing at the nose strap, hindering training.
