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!

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!)

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JanP This Gentle Leader is that!
I have a very strong pit bull/shepherd mix who has proved 5 different "no pull harnesses" to not be what they say. But this Gentle Leader definitely works. The main problem with my dog is when we come across other dogs, she wants to go to them and play, and drag me down the street to get to them. With the Gentle Leader I'm in control. It's been very effective, and it's so nice to walk calmly without her choking from a chain or other collar. With the Gentle Leader we can keep walking past any distraction. I am very pleased.
