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.

PetSafe Premier Gentle Leader Quick Release Dog Headcollar, Fawn is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it love it love it! #1, watch the video that's provided or go on Youtube to make sure you fit the lead correctly. #2, put it on your dog and enjoy your walk! From the first step out the door what an amazing experience. Such a simple concept and so completely effective. I was recouperating from surgery and had a lively 8 month old golden doodle and could not risk any pulling behavior. Such a pleasure to walk with her, no choking or pulling. I've had her off the leash playing and retrieving toys and the lead does not interfere with any her play. She can easily drink and eat with it on. After an initial 30 seconds of having the harness over her muzzle she was adjusted and she hasn't looked back since. She now looks forward to me putting the gentleleader on her because she knows we're going someplace fun! :) I am recommending this product to everyone I know!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from bought for Ranger -- it's very thin The one I bought in the store was much wider. Your pop up is complaining that my review is too short. There isn't anything else to say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like MAGIC! We rescued a 4-1/2 yr old standard poodle who must have been abused by her former owners. She is a beautiful and intelligent dog, but came to us without ever having any rules, boundaries or limitations. She learns fast but has a mind of her own. When I started to walk her, she didn't know how to walk on a leash and pulled like crazy. We have used the Gentle Leader Head Collar with other dogs and I knew just what to do for Rosie. She didn't mind when I fitted the collar to her and immediately sat at my feet! You should have heard the comments from other pet owners in our park! As soon as we started to walk she tightened the leash to pull ahead of me. I corrected with a slight tug and release, saying: UH-UH. That is all it took! She now walks next to me with a loose leash which I drape over one finger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!! I have a huge German shepherd that is a little over 1 year old. She was a gift to my father who has not spent any training time with her. She was unruly and constantly pulled, jumped, snapped, scratched, etc. I bought 4 of these collars (I have 4 dogs) and I swear THEY ARE THE BEST THING EVER!! Only after a few minutes of her learning that she can’t get out of it, she was obeying without any pulling whatsoever. They are pain free and they really command obedience from the dog. Have treats handy for praising. AWESOME PRODUCT!! Michelle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver!! I don't usually leave reviews...I'm too busy, I order too much, etc. However, I want to share with anyone reading this how much this head collar improved my walks with my nutty, 5-year old Wheaten terrier girl. My right hand was actually getting swollen and sore from our walks lately. I moved across the country to a great town outside of DC where everyone has a dog and she is just bananas around other dogs. Now with the head collar she (almost always) is more relaxed on our walks, and responds instantly to my commands to sit, come, etc. I thought I was going to have to pay a fortune for training classes, etc. but this head collar was the answer for me. I have no trouble putting it on her, she seems comfortable and doesn't seem to mind much, and the tan color blends into her coat color. Again, highly highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT FOR DOG WALKING! I read Michelle's Review who said it was Awesome and I agree. I have a very bossy Aussie, 60 lb., who is very obedient when he wants to be and not when he doesn't want to be, such as when a truck goes by or other distraction. As well as a 60 lb. Border Collie who is obedient until he gets afraid and wants to pull his head out of his old collar and run since he was a rescue. Thus I purchased two and they work but my particular Aussie being so head strong made it a new learning experience each time and when he rubbed his head on the ground the bottom connector under his mouth opened and I had to quickly fix it or if I didn't notice it opened before long we were walking with it unlatched and loose. I say this for your knowledge to check the latch under the mouth if your dog has been trying to rub it off. My neighbors have a huge Malamute that is stubborn and he walks great with his gentle leader; yet he too would try to get it off at first but then accepted it and has been using his for many years now. This kind gentle leader also does not let the dog get too far ahead of you and is best used on a 4 to 6 foot leash and you have great control with minimal effort and a pleasant walking experience. However if for some reason you don't buy this PetSafe gentle leader I also highly recommend the PetSafe Easy Walk Harness, see my review under the color red, or the PetSafe Collar without the plastic buckle under the color red is my other review. I highly recommend the PetSafe products for different types of dog personalities and situations. I also think it is safest to leave what ever walking tool you buy attached to your leash and not leave it on the dog so it doesn't catch on anything when the dog is not walking on the leash and always use under your supervision. Chewy.com has the best prices and excellent customer service if you have any questions about sizes!
