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.

  • Stopped pulling completely

    By on

    I have a Great Dane, German Shepard , pit mix that LOVES to pull when on the leash to the point that she sometimes chokes herself. We were in the middle of training when this collar was introduced to us. IT WORKED LIKE A CHARM...the pulling has stopped completely with no severely negative effects on my pup. She didn't like it at first, and tried to get it off with her paws. But after a few walks, she got comfortable with it.

  • My dog doesn't like but it's best for him

    By on

    I have been working with him to get him used to it, haven't had the time I need for it, and I may have ordered the wrong size. When he is more comfortable with it on I will see if sizing is correct.

  • He hates it, but we love it.

    By on

    Our 6 month old Aussie doesn't way much, but he can pull like a mule! He absolutely hated it at first, but he is slowly getting used to it. Still tries to paw it off every now and then. I'm sure with more and more practice he will not be bothered by it. I have had two dogs use a gentle leader and it works magic!

  • Works well but not for a chewer

    By on

    Tool a couple days to fit it properly and get the dog accustomed to the gentle leader but what a difference it made on our first walk. It worked great. Unfortunately, he was able to bite through the part that hangs below the chin that connects to the leash. Tried it again. He ate it again. Great but not for a chewer.

  • Works, dogs stopped pulling!

    By on

    Similar to a horse bridle but softer on their snouts. I purchased 2 sizes, medium fit 45lb lab mix and large fit the 77lb brother, great directions included. A pleasure to walk both of them!

  • amazing results in short period of time

    By on

    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 ★★★★★

    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.

    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!

  • Gentle Leader really works!

    By on

    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.
