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.

  • Lifesaver!

    By on

    I suffer from chronic nerve pain and when I started out running with my (then 8 month old) boxer/belgian mix, he was such a puller. Every day I would hurt for hours after a walk or run. We tried a couple of different harness options before I remembered what had been recommended years prior by the Guide Dogs for the Blind org, the Gentle Leader. It hasn't made him the perfect dog but it has allowed me to run through good days and painful days, hike for miles and really helped our relationship. It even helps with my kids as I'd have never let him pull my 6 year old's arms off but now with the gentle feedback, he is aware that he is pulling too hard.

  • Takes Time, but there are Amazing Results!

    By on

    I got this for my 9mo old Golden Retriever, who is very friendly and sociable but would pull me to go say hello to other people. When I first introduced the gentle leader, I put it on but clipped his leash to his collar. He threw many "tantrums" the first couple of weeks (he would get on the ground and try to paw off the gentle leader) but after he began to get used to it he has stopped pulling and can even heel! The only downside is that the gentle leader is often mistaken for a muzzle by strangers, which is a bit sad because they will cross the street with their dogs to the other side, even though my puppy is very gentle and friendly :(

    It takes a good week of getting your dog used to wearing this before you can even begin walking, and that takes a lot of extra work too. We also purchased the easy walk harness and that is fantastic and works immediately without having to get puppy used to it. Do not recommend if you don't have the patience and time. Harness is better.

  • Works very well!

    By on

    I have a 98 pond 6 month old Bullmastiff 'puppy' aka teen dog and this 'lead' snout harness make teaching him to heel very easy. While Arthur does not like it at first he soon learned that when the lead goes on he gets to go for walks and of course when he sits when we stop and does well he gets a very small treat It is strong yet fits very well just follow the directions. Of course Chewy's great price and very fast shipping is the icing on the cake.

  • Not for all dog breeds

    By on

    Doesn't work for short nose breeds like a Boston Terrier. Also the adjusting strap lock was far to hard to clasp to get in the right place while on the dog. Gave it a few stars for overall good construction and if the right dog I can see it working very well.

    It take more than a week of getting your dog used to wearing this before you can even begin walking, and that takes a lot of extra work too. Harness is better.

  • Takes time

    By on

    Well the first time I used it I wanted to throw it out the window... we have a 50 lb Goldendoodle and he is a terrible puller. But after working with him in the house ... now outside he is doing great. Still tries to get it off his nose at times but we're still working on it. Walks pretty darn good now. Still pulls a bit but nothing like without it. He seems to get stressed with it on so I only do short intervals with him.

  • Best $20 ever spent

    By on

    Quick and east reminder for the dog not to pull. Easy to put on and off but fitting it was a bit tricky since my pup was thrashing her head around. Once it was fitted and she learned to put her nose in the loop, easy as pie.

  • Great Product

    By on

    I have a 50 lb Dalmatian who was horrible on a leash! She would constantly pull no matter what I did. However, with this gentle leader, she walks perfectly on a leash! She no longer pulls or jerks.
