Product Description

Size: l | Color: Red

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.

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.
