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.

  • Amazing!!!

    By on

    I was trying so hard to leash train my 4 1/2mo old Doberman puppy. I read up on all the ways and I wasn't having any luck. I just wanted to walk her without her pulling. Once I put this on her I became the one in charge and we both were excited to go for a walk. She still pulls with her head when she really wants to get somewhere, but I can hold the leash with two fingers and have complete control. Game changer for sure! I just wanted a way to walk without the pulling and this WORKS!

  • Great for my Dogue de Bordeaux!

    By on

    I tried this product out after being dragged across the ground one too many times by one arm while trying to hold onto the leash as my 130# mastiff darted after dogs, kids, leaves... It is FANTASTIC. He doesn't try to pull while wearing it, so there is no stress on his neck. If he does decide to dart, it quickly pulls him back around with little to no effort and saves my arm sockets. Love this product!

  • Pup still pulls

    By on

    We were recommended to get this since our puppy pulls while being taken on walks. We have used it every day twice today for 30 minutes at a time and she still continues to pull and tries to get it off of her snout. Our trainer said to try it for one more week.. and if it doesn't working to use a harness or prong collar.

  • 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.

  • Didn't work for my Great Dane

    By on

    I purchased this almost a year ago for my rescued Dane and every single time I put it on he got it off within seconds. Definitely don't recommend for big dogs anyways. I can't comment on how it works for smaller breeds. We ended up going with a different brand where the harness wrapped around body and has been wonderful.

  • Stops Pulling Instantaneously

    By on

    My one year old German Shepherd, Heidi, likes to pull on her leash when she went on walk. I tried many different collars, leashes and harnesses with not much help. Collars and harnesses didn't have much effect, and slip lead leashes would cause Heidi to pull until she would be chocking herself, even with the slip placed up high, by ears. I figured I would try one last product. About after two minutes of Heidi getting used to the collar, I was able to take her for a walk with pulling or any issues. Works as advertised, and I can honestly recommend this to almost anyone, not sure about how it will work/hold on dogs with shorter noses, who has issues with their dog pulling on leash.

  • Amazing for loose leash walking

    By on

    I have tried every time of harness and leash to get my dog to stop pulling. My dog didn't love it at first but once he got used to it he did amazing. No pulling and he was much more engaged on our walks. Love it. Highly recommend.

  • pleasantly surprised

    By on

    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

  • Good for pups who pull

    By on

    My puppy does wonderfully when I walk him with the gentle leader. It is tough getting it on him, however, and he stops during our walks to try to scratch it off. Despite those issues, it has stopped him from pulling, and when he does it doesn't hurt him to be pulled back.
