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 on the leash.
  • Only have to compete with the strength of neck and head not all of the body
  • Easy for anyone to walk big or strong dogs
  • Safe to use on puppies as young as 8 weeks old
  • Very little pressure applied to the dog’s muzzle and no pressure on the throat
  • Can be sized to fit all dogs with an adjustable nose loop
  • Option to convert the Headcollar to a regular collar if desired
  • Eliminates uncomfortable pressure on the throat when pulling on a standard collar
  • Because of the placement of the collar, the dog understands his place in the hierarchy and considers you his leader.


  • Petite, under 5 lbs; snout 11 inches (Chihuahua, teacup and toy breeds, puppies)
  • Small, 5-25 lbs; snout 12 inches(Beagle, Sheltie, Shihtzu)
  • Medium, 25-60 lbs; snout 18 inches(Border Collie, Bulldog, Pug)
  • Large, 60-130 lbs; snout 22 inches(Boxer, German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever)
  • Extra Large over 130 lbs; snout 28 inches (Great Dane, Newfoundland, Saint Bernard)

Consider your dog's weight based on the chart below. Next, look at the shape of the dog’s head and snout. Breeds with long slender heads may take a smaller size than other dogs of the same weight. Breeds with wide muzzles may need a slightly larger size.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 84 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lead control, safe and secure! No tugging like a normal leash! My labradoodle puppy was difficult to walk with using a leash/halter. The lead has made our walks manageable and So much more enjoyable! More control when in crowds or around other dogs. Highly recommend this to all dog owners who have a curious, feisty puppy. Made our world a whole lot better when we are out and about. 100% improvement !!! July 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product is fabulous! I wish I had gotten this years ago . . . my shoulders would still be in their sockets. It is the only thing that has stopped our dogs from pulling. Now we enjoy our walks and suffer no injuries. July 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product sure helps control my dog from pulling My dog used to run out the door ahead of me each chance she got. At times it would jerk me so hard it would cause me a lot of pain in my upper shoulder. She's only 6 months old and gets so excited to chase the squirrels. With the Gentle Leader she stays close to my side and waits for me to release her so she can go running after the squirrels. July 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool My schnoodle has high anxiety when he walks with me. He lunges and tries to attack any human or animal. This magical lead stops all that. He walks like a gentle dog. This leash has magical powers. June 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best harness on the market, lightweight, easy on, easy off. I must say I was skeptical when someone suggested I try this product, but I figured I had nothing to loose. I have tried various leashes, harnesses, etc. to control my 1 year old, 37lb. Aussiepoo with no success. She loves to walk, but was walking/pulling me instead of me walking her. I felt her constant pulling was not only harming her, but was causing harm to me. The first night I put the Gentle Leader on her, I led her her first around the back yard, until we were both comfortable, then we hit the streets. No pulling, no tugging, just a nice walk around the block. I am impressed and I would highly recommend this product. We have FINALLY found what we have been looking for. May 28, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good for Dogs that Aren't Strong Pullers Our german shorthaired pointer/pit mix is a very strong puller so we thought we'd give the Gentle Leader brand head harness a try. While it has the potential to stop her from pulling, more often than not the muzzle strap ends up rubbing up against her eyes yet she continues to pull anyway. On walks i constantly have to adjust the strap so it's not up against her eyes. No matter how i adjust the length of the muzzle strap it still does this. The collar end of it fits wonderfully. My St. Bernard has a similar style head harness from a different brand but it is designed so that the nose strap won't push up against the eyes if he pulls (which he doesn't do anymore now that he's well past the puppy stage and used to his head harness). Head harnesses can be great but this brand just isn't designed as well as others and won't work on super pullers and has the potential to cause eye injury to the dog. March 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by getting used to it - but working! My puppy and I are into agility. She's really good at it but will not heel to save our lives. I've tried all the techniques that's our trainers have suggested. We work daily on it and she still won't heel. When we go on walks, we barely make it down the street and she's choking herself from pulling so hard and gasping for breath. I tried a harness and she still pulls so hard she chokes herself. I even tried a chain collar which I'm against. The chain collar worked for a while but then she'd get tired of it and just start pulling again. BUT then I tried the gentle leader. I followed all the steps and after a week, like suggested, we went for a walk. It was like night and day. She's still getting used to the feeling of it but she's not choking herself. She still tries to walk a little bit ahead of me but she's not pulling and trying to run down the street. The majority of our walk she's beside me. After 2 walks she's 75% better. I can't wait to see her after 2 more. September 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dog doesn't pull with this My 70 pound very enthusiastic dog doesn't pull with this. I've tried chokers, Cesar milan's illusion collar but nothing worked. I don't know why I didn't try this collar earlier because it works on the same principle as leading a horse. And I have been a horse person all my life. The only complaint I have is the nose piece rides up into his eyes and I have to stop and make adjustments. Other than that it works excellent. May 2, 2016
