Description

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.

  • THANK YOU GENTLE LEADER

    By on

    Walks are finally bearable! I tried a no-pull harness that made things worse! I have a 2 year old hound mix who HATES being restrained to a leash or tie out stringer. His personality makes it hard to keep him controlled. He has always whined and barked on walks, and this product did not change that. However, the gentle leader (after only a few days of walks 2x daily) has allowed me a dog that doesn't yank my arm off on walks. It's amazing. Redirects the dog's face so that he pays attention to you and not distractions, but doesn't seem to hurt the dog at all. My dog does get a little annoyed with it and stops every so often in an attempt to scratch it off. I think I may purchase a gentle Walks are finally bearable!

I 100% recommend this product for people with dogs that need leash trained. Pair with some training treats and you'll have a different dog within days. I promise you that. … more

  • AMAZING love it!

    I have a 70LBS dog with a ton of strength. I started out with the easy walk and it worked well while he was a puppy. He now has a lot of interest outdoor wild life and loves to chase birds/squirrels. I have heard great things about the gentle leader and I finally tried it. I'm super impressed with this product. When I walk him with this product he almost always leave slack on the leash with no pulling. I was actually having problems with my elbow from him pulling so hard. With this product my elbow is better and my dog is much better behaved.

    I admittedly thought my 1.5-year-old golden retriever was a hopeless case. His incessant pulling, accompanied by wheezing and choking himself on a regular collar, made walking him a truly terrible experience. I tried a chest harness and it was a disaster. I had low expectations for this nose leader. While it took a couple of trips for my pup to get used to having this on his nose and hooked under his chin, I patiently kept at it. Fortunately, he is very obedient so I would gently command him to sit when he started thrashing his head about so he could regroup and start again. By the third time out he stopped the thrashing all together and seemed not to be bothered by it much at all. It I admittedly thought my 1.5-year-old golden retriever was a hopeless case.

By the third time out he stopped the thrashing all together and seemed not to be bothered by it much at all. It truly helps to give your dog treats and a good deal of praise when introducing the leader around his nose. That all went better than expected. My dog still tugs at the leader more than I would like but the design allows me to gently correct the tugging by essentially encouraging him to turn his head toward me, which also inherently encourages him to slow down. When the tugging is more problematic (he is only a year-and-a-half after all), I tell him to sit and we simply regroup and try again. Gone is the gagging and wheezing! I am (for the first time) optimistic that he will improve and be more enjoyable to walk. I have some concerns about the durability over the long term: it looks rather flimsy but I've not had any trouble so far. I also wish there were a little more padding where the leader crosses the top of his nose. It doesn't seem to be causing him actual discomfort; it just LOOKS like it might be uncomfortable. I have not tried other brands and might be more inclined to do so now that I know my dog tolerates this design well and it seems to be effective. … more

  • Life Saver, Effortless walking

    By on

    We purchased this as a last resort. We have a 6 month old Newfie puppy who is 75 lbs and whenever we would see another person or dog he would get so excited that he would pull to go see them. I am about 110lb and it got to the point where I couldn't hold him back and he would pull me wherever he wanted to go. After spending $1000 with a personal trainer and having no results, we heard from numerous Newfie owners to try this and I am so glad we did. While he still trys to pull, it is absolutely effortless to get him in the direction you need. Putting it on his easy too and while he does try to get it off I'm sure with time he will adjust

  • Great Lead

    By on

    Our 1.5 y/o Chocolate Lab sometimes pulls the leash. My wife and I picked this up as a remedy. Within a few days he got the picture that he wasn't going to pull anymore. The lead fits well and can be adjusted at the front and back. There is absolutely no pain for the dog to endure. Recommend using this for all ages but especially for training a puppies in their development stages. Great tool!

  • Uh-oh what is this???

    By on

    The gentle lead is NOT the problem. Great product. It's just the dog that is lucky or should I say unlucky enough to wear it...hehehe. in our case a great big blonde 50 pounder who turned into a bucking bronco while trying it out!! She begged me to continue with just the choker collar. She is a rescue and quite spirited...and so the saga continies...

  • Still working on it!!!

    By on

    My pit bull has a short, square snout, and in order to get the leader tight enough that she can't slip it off it irritates her. She keeps trying to paw it off. I've watched the video a few times and will keep trying putting it on her for short periods of time with LOTS of kibble rewards. The video recommends having her wear it while she eats; I haven't tried that yet, but will do so soon.

  • Much improved

    By on

    I really like the gentle leader! My dog seems to have a very sensitive trachea so pulling on a collar is NOT good for him. He is a 6 year old, 100 pound rotti who knew nothing about walking on leash having spent his entire life in a room locked away! My dog accepted it easily. When we started out on a walk, I made it a simple change of direction every time he pushed against it, kept a loose leash and just kept walking in different directions. Finally got him to walk next to me.

  • This is so amazing!

    By on

    I can't believe how instant this works. One day I'm being pulled by my 10month old 60lb dog and then I walk him with this gentle leader and I am in control again! I was about to lose my mind constantly tensed up when on walks with my dog, pulling especially if there was another dog passing us or those annoying squirrels;) My last straw was when he actually made me fall trying to say "hi" to another dog on a walk....I was mortified, slightly hurt and not in control of my dog. This is my saving grace, the video that came with the harness was great and informative. Try this if you are tired of looking like your dog is walking you!

  • Did not work for us.

    By on

    Our dog did great the first time with the gentle leader, but figured it out by the second walk! She kept grabbing the part that hangs in front and was too upset and distracted to mind. We got a pinch collar instead and it works like a dream! We both can get a nice quick walk with very little distractions.
