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


  • 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 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 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 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
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 Great Tool for Eager Dogs Taking our German Shepherd for a walk used to be nearly impossible for me. The constant pulling did a number on my back, my wrists, my arms, everything! But using the Gentle Leader has helped our dog to stop pulling almost completely. Now both the dog and I can get our exercise without all the frustration and aches! If you're dealing with a stubborn, energetic dog (especially a bigger dog), stop messing around and buy a Gentle Leader. It's safer than a choke collar and it works like a charm without hurting/punishing your dog. If I had known how well this product worked, I would have gotten one a long time ago! September 8, 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 5 out of 5 by An Essential We have a 10 month old Blue Heeler that would pull incredibly--she wasn't enjoying her walk and neither were we. The perfect solution and so inexpensive! September 4, 2016
