A dog’s natural instinct is to pull when tension is on the lead, even if they are choking. Because standard collars and harnesses create this tension when owners pull, the dog pulls in the opposite direction. Because the Gentle Leader Headcollar works like a halter, the dog’s head is gently moved in the direction the owner wants it to go. And where the head goes, the body will follow. Because of the placement of the nose loop, the dog immediately understands his/her place in the hierarchy. The dog considers the owner his/her leader. 

Key Benefits

  • Stops pulling, lunging, jumping, and other unwanted behaviors with immediate, gentle control
  • Adjustable nose loop allows you to direct your dog’s head in the direction you want to go
  • Makes it easy for anyone to walk big or strong dogs
  • Collar sits high on dog’s neck without putting pressure on the throat, places pressure on the back of the neck instead of the front of the delicate throat, preventing choking and coughing.
  • Safe to use on puppies as young as 8 weeks old, can be converted to a regular collar if needed

Enjoy an Easier Walk with Your Pup

If your dog tends to pull on the leash, daily walks can be stressful for both of you. PetSafe's Gentle Leader Headcollar and Easy Walk Harness make the task of walking your dog an enjoyable experience. They give you immediate control and they're comfortable for your pet, unlike standard collars that can cause choking.

Enjoy an Easier Walk with Your Pup
Less Pulling, More Bonding

Less Pulling, More Bonding

Pet parents agree that the Easy Walk Harness makes such a difference that it's like walking a new dog. Instead of pulling your pup's neck, the Easy Walk redirects the entire torso. The leash connects at the chest with a Martingale loop, so a gentle tug moves her whole body in the direction you want to go. Less time playing tug-of-war means more time for bonding with your pet on your walks.

Uniquely Designed for Gentle Control

The Gentle Leader Headcollar puts you, not your eager walking buddy, in control of the walk. The nose loop redirects your dog's head toward you when she pulls. She'll quickly learn that she's not getting anywhere by pulling forward, and you'll have her full attention. The Gentle Leader is ideal for training dogs to heel and teaching them to walk on a leash without pulling.

Uniquely Designed for Gentle Control
Get the Perfect Fit

Get the Perfect Fit

Both the Gentle Leader and Easy Walk come in a variety of sizes to fit any dog comfortably.

The Easy Walk rests across the chest and wraps around the torso. If it looks like a sideways T, you'll know you have the proper fit. With four adjustment points and quick-snap buckles on the shoulder and belly straps, Easy Walk gives a reliable fit.

The Gentle Leader Headcollar slips securely over your dog's nose and sits high on her neck without putting pressure on her throat. It should form a V when fit properly, and your pup will still be able to eat and carry their favorite tennis ball along with them when wearing the Gentle Leader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gentle leader I have a saint bernard and he pulls really bad. I bought a harness and that didnt work. He still pulled me all over the place. When we went for our walks i was exhausted afterwards. I bought the gentle leader and it was like night and day. He walked beside me instead of way ahead of me. Never pulled once. Well worth the money and i highly recommend it October 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works wonders I use the Gentle Leader to walk my 165lb Great Dane. He doesn't always need it anymore, but it worked wonders when he did. I'm only 5'1", so this gave me the control I needed. I like this design because it is a similar concept as to the halter with horses. Where the head goes, the body goes. When putting the Gentle Leader on your dog, make sure that it has a secure fit. The neck piece is supposed to fit snug and sit right under the base of the ears. Do not be afraid to make it tight, as that is how it is meant to be fitted. The dog will need some time to get used to having a head collar on, so don't be discouraged. It will take time and patience to work with the dog. This device really helps, better than a choker or prong collar in my experience. My Dane never respected the prong collar which lead me to try this new device and I was happy I did. Regular harnesses don't really stop pulling since the sternum and shoulders are strong points on the dog (hence harnesses being used on sled dogs). I highly recommend trying the Gentle Leader. Your arms will thank you. August 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by works on my coonhound I wish it were a little more heavy duty- I broke the first one and had to replace it. before this my dog could drag me around at will October 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to control big dogs We use the gentle leader since our old English sheepdog became a full grown. It is so easy to walk him, no more being walked by him. October 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Miracle!! We have a 4 year old, rescued Great Dane. He pulls with a prong collar on so I got him a body harness. Pulls worse through that. Someone suggested the Gentle Leader. He acts like he's had this on before. Sits nicely to accept it on his face and when I put the leash on and tried to just walk to the mailbox.....ta daaaa!!!! We can now walk as a family! He walks with his head high, no pulling and a confident gate! I'm sure it usually takes time to get a dog to adjust to having it on their face though. We got lucky! Love this product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for my stubborn GSD My GSD is a major puller! He uses all 80lbs of force & then some! I ordered a size large. We started working with him same day we got our package, and noticed immediate improvement after a few trips outside. It will definitely take your pooch some time to get used to, but it is totally worth it! I can now walk him with no issue. You must be constant with it though. It isn't a 1 time use, and the dog is fixed. HIGHLY recommend this product! September 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Drama free walks! My dog (a 2-yr-old, 60-ish pound lab/terrier mix), pulls on his leash terribly! Walks were a nightmare. I tried another brand of gentle leader and he hated it. It had too much padding on the nose cover and maybe it didn't fit well, and he'd keep stopping and rubbing his nose in the grass to try to get it off. And maybe because of the poor fit, he'd drool excessively. With this gentle leader, although he occasionally will stop and try to get it off, there is much less of that and our walks are finally drama free! It fits great, he is much calmer and it was pretty easy to figure out. September 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gentle Leader Much better product than those sold in big box pet stores. The instructions and dvd are not included in pet store purchases. September 28, 2016
