Rated 5 out of 5 by Allison73 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nat42 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.

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

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.

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 Ashley 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trola2 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.

Much better product than those sold in big box pet stores. The instructions and dvd are not included in pet store purchases.
