Rated 5 out of 5 by NHwoodspup This is the BEST product for walking my dog
We were still struggling with our large golden retriever puppy pulling on walks when he had to have a surgery that made it so we couldn't use a traditional harness during his recovery. Our vet recommended the Gentle Leader and even helped fit it on our pup (apparently he learned how to fit it from the inventor himself!). The Gentle Leader is the ONLY thing that gives me the control and piece of mind I need when walking my dog in a busy or suburban area (at home we are in a rural area and our pup walks mostly off leash). Because he has a lot of independence at home, he does fuss with the collar quite a bit when it first goes on and that is our biggest struggle at the moment. The guide says the dogs that fuss with it (they paw at it or rub their faces on you or the ground or ANYTHING) are the ones that typically need the training the most. Once we get moving, though, he does a lot better and walks without pulling. If he does get distracted by something and pull, however, this collar makes it so easy to correct him. It really is like "power steering" for my big dog!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sue534 The best! easy to adjust and put on!
My 4 1/2 month Vizsla has become a gentleman thanks to this collar. He puts his nose through the loop to get his treat and we are ready for a walk or training!

My dog is still getting used to it but I live this product! Not a whole lot that works on my large pet. Great pricing through chewy as well. I thought this item looked "scary" for months but would highly recommend it to anyone needing more control over their pet now.

Used this for my Coon hound mix dog years ago and it worked great so after my daughter tried everything for her rambucious doberman I bought this and can walk her dog without any issues. In fact I walk her and my dog together which would be impossible without them both being on gentle leaders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whiskeygirl09 Gentle Leaders for a gentle walk.
I purchased 2 gentle leaders, an x-large & large for my 2 St. Bernards. I am so happy with the difference they have made walking my dogs. Combined weight of my male & female is just under 300 lbs. and walking them had become a chore especially in the winter months when it was slippery. My daughter has gentle leaders for her Saints so I decided to give them a try. So many people have negative comments about them as they think they are a muzzle and therefore your dog must be aggressive. I decided walking my dogs was more important than uninformed peoples opinions. I can't say enough about the difference they made and am so glad I purchased them. Walking my dogs is once again a pleasurable experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mkdayv very effective product
I really love that this allows control of my vizsla without choking her! I would recommend this to dog owners who have larger breeds.

The gentle leader worked very quickly after putting it on my 5 month old Lab. She stopped pulling on the lead and healed at my side while walking.
