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, Green is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works for a larger dog I ordered this product for our Maltese mix. Although she weighs 10lbs it worked fine. The packaging said 5lbs. So far it has worked in correcting her car chasing instinct.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Greater Control Took a little getting Paddy used to putting on the lead. However there is a very good dvd that explains everything about it. The lead immediately made him stop pulling (mostly) and he lets me put it on with very little trouble after just a few days. However he still isn't used to having the strap on his nose, and on down times tends to drag his nose in the grass trying to pull it off. The dvd said it can take up to a couple month to fully adjust. Before using the lead Paddy would about pull my arm off, with the lead a small child could walk him with little trouble, and I think it will only get better with time. Definitely watch the dvd first. sorry this is scatter brained, someone was talking in my ear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes the pain out of walkies! Walking your dog becomes a lot less of an arm-wrenching experience when using this lead. Highly recommend it, especially for big or strong dogs. Only problem: Chewy only carries these up to 150 pounds, and my pup is highly likely to top out higher than that. While Giant breed dogs aren't a high percentage of the population, it'd still be good to see the premier online pet site cater to them a bit more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Greater Price! Amazing product at an even better price! Have enjoyed training my Great Dane with the leash and have had wonderful results from the first session and massive improvement with each session since. Have told friends and even strangers about the leash and Chewy.com.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only way to walk a St. Bernard This is the second one I have had ... I swear my St.Bernard Ozzy hid the first one.. Typically Ozzy does not like to have this thing loop around his snout. This model is better than the first with improved hardware design. This is the only way with out hurting a dog and a pleasant alternative to a choke collar... Particularly with a dog that has no idea how strong he is....They learn quickly where the nose goes the Dog follows and just don't pull afterwards... after that Walks are pleasant and effortless till distracted.... by something... but easily you can regain control with a short tug....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog is a puller Seems to work well. I recommend watching the DVD it comes with. I found that to be helpful. Not sure how well it works yet, we are just getting started. But one thing is for sure, it is easier to control his pulling.
