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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog needs this product for our walks. I was so happy when I saw this product was available. My dog is still growing but needs this product. It comes with detailed instructions and a cd with further training information. Extremely useful product. December 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good training harness The moment I put it on my Border Collie, she stays right at my side. I'm very happy with the Gentle Leader. December 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by BOUNCING KITE FLYING JACK RUSSELL TAMED!! At first he acted like a horse with his first bridle. He jumped, rolled on the ground, shook his head...and finally gave in. NOW our strolls are great and I am no longer going for a drag, but a walk! LOVE IT! November 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing results in short period of time We adopted Molly a little over a year ago. She was not trained well, and as any pit bull, she loves to pull. We tried so many collars, leads, training books and videos.... finally, we bought this gentle leader collar on our vet techs' recommendation. After only 2 days of training, she is a totally different dog on her walks. Even other dogs don't pay any attention to her, don't try to get to her, or even bark from their back yards!! She is so much calmer and happier, and my shoulders and arms don't ache constantly! I didn't think this collar would work, but it does !!!! She and we love it ★★★★★ November 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gentle Leader really works! I was getting tired of my recently adopted dog pulling constantly. My son had used Gentle Leader on his dog several years ago, and recommended it. In just over a week, my dog seems adjusted to it, and best of all, no longer tries to set the pace! Great product. November 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is the BEST product for walking my dog We were still struggling with our large golden retriever puppy pulling on walks when he had to have a surgery that made it so we couldn't use a traditional harness during his recovery. Our vet recommended the Gentle Leader and even helped fit it on our pup (apparently he learned how to fit it from the inventor himself!). The Gentle Leader is the ONLY thing that gives me the control and piece of mind I need when walking my dog in a busy or suburban area (at home we are in a rural area and our pup walks mostly off leash). Because he has a lot of independence at home, he does fuss with the collar quite a bit when it first goes on and that is our biggest struggle at the moment. The guide says the dogs that fuss with it (they paw at it or rub their faces on you or the ground or ANYTHING) are the ones that typically need the training the most. Once we get moving, though, he does a lot better and walks without pulling. If he does get distracted by something and pull, however, this collar makes it so easy to correct him. It really is like "power steering" for my big dog!! June 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE BEST! This product works great. It is the only thing that has stopped my dogs from pulling. We now thoroughly enjoy our walks. September 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very helpful Our 9 month old puppy seems to be a little more stubborn about it still than our 5 year old pup, but it helps a ton. If anything makes it easier to control them, even if they pull, and I'm sure he will get better on it eventually. Has done wonders for our 5 year old for sure! August 23, 2016
