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 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best for dogs that walk you! I have a rescue Englis pointer and is a very strong puller when walking. I bought an anti pull harness to no avail. Purchased this ( I've used on another dog in the past also) and bam walks perfectly. No more sore shoulders here! In the past I only needed to use a few weeks until my pet figured out the correct way of walking. Great, humane product! August 13, 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 Love this product!!! I have used the Gentle Leader for over 15 years. From my Basset Hound to my 110lbs Great Dane/Airedale and now on my German Shepherd/Lab/Husky mix puppy. It makes walking my dogs so easy and gives me confidence that they are not going to 'take me for a walk.' I also love the option to make this a muzzle when needed. It worked great for my Basset that was low to the ground and like to eat anything appealing that she came upon when I had her public. I love to educate people on this product. The best analogy that I have found is to tell people that it works similar to a horse bridle in that I can control my dog to where I want them to go. Order this product if you are having pulling/control issues or even for that extra piece of mind, you will not regret it!! April 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for pullers I've always loved the gentle leader. Simply put it works without any chance I can see of injury as possible with prong collars or chokers. The only thing I would change is for larger dogs I wish it were wider. It called also be a bit cheaper for what it is made of. That being said I would still recommend it. June 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Should be used with all dogs. A safe way to lead your dog no matter size of dog. May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yes a million times!! This is our second one since puppy outgrew the first after a year & we could not be more happy! Extra plus was Chewy being cheaper than anywhere else! & offering girly colors!! May 3, 2016
