Rated 5 out of 5 by 2boxermixmom Works miracles
My 50 pound boxer mix is a heavy puller. I tried everything: choke collars, pinch collars (didn't use them for more than once, because I felt my dog will injure herself, that didn't stop her from pulling at all), finally I settled in with the harness. It would give me pretty good control, but whenever she was excited, I would have to definitely put my whole strength to control her. Plus she was unpredictable with other dogs, and would lung and them and growl. Well... that's in the past, after my last walk and blisters on my hand, I decided to give one more try. As always, the item came in super fast! I was excited to get it in a pink color, which is always a plus for my fashionista. It took a few minutes to figure out how to work it, but once it was on, it was just like magic. She wouldn't pull or tug, I can't say she is a fan of it, and always looks a bit embarrassed to wear it, but I don't have to stress on walks anymore. I was even able to take them to bully parade, where there were tons of dogs in close proximity, I was able to control her and hold her back. I didn't even need any effort or force, just a gentle tug and that's it. If you have any doubts whether to use this product DO IT! While your dog might not love it, you'll be able to have more fun with your pet by taking out on stress free walks! This changed my life. While I do hope that this will teach her how to walk properly and we won't have to use it for the rest of her life, but in the meantime this leash is amazing. Plus it doesn't choke them or hurt them, its a win win for both!

This is forever what I will be training my dogs with. It is amazing if used correctly. My dog behaves so much better since I have been using this to train her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shayla Ingenious way to walk a dog!
I have a Doberman who walks well on a standard leash and collar, but does tend to want to pull on the way home, when she sees/hears another dog, when people are near, etc. I don't like walking her on a choke chain, but would have to. I have never tried a headcollar....until today! WOW! What a difference it makes! She initially pawned at it, shook her head, etc trying to get it off but adjusted very quickly. That had to be the most pleasurable walk we've taken! Almost zero pull, even on the way home and walking past a yard with nasty dogs! The pretty raspberry pink color is a nice "diva" touch. Definitely a great product!
(ps....get the matching leash!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marnie Perfect for controlling strong dogs
This is my second Gentle Leader since the first one is filthy from our daily walks and Suzi's occasional rolling in the grass. Now i can have one in the wash while the other is in use! And the new one has a little extra padding on the inside of the nosepiece which is nice. We're still working on totally stopping her pulling but she's improved immensely and she can no longer pull me over in an unanticipated "squirrel incident"! This harness gives me the upper hand.

I ordered a large and it was a little big but the chin strap is adjustable and it will be great for my still growing dobi. These gentle leaders stop pulling and keeps my dogs in control.

Rated 3 out of 5 Does what it is intended to do.
This collar worked well and would've worked better if I had bought the correct size! I ended up purchasing a Halti head collar on Amazon (since they don't have them on Chewy) and I like that design better. It has a padded nose strap that doesn't leave a dent in my pup's fur. She still hates it and I think will probably not like any head collar, so that's not really a priority for me. I would say both collars work equally as well as far as training goes. It makes it a lot easier to direct where I want my pup to go and if she starts pulling it does not choke her. This is good, because she is going through a stubborn faze..! Good luck! I do recommend a head collar, but I have to say I like the Halti style better.
