I just got a Great Dane puppy and she pulls like crazy, it took her about a week to get used to the collar and now she has no problems pawing at it or pulling on the leash! Very good Product. I purchased it in a Large because I know she'll grow into it soon enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EllaB Gentle Leader
I purchased a larger size then I needed. But, it adjusted well. My Black Lab Whippet cross has a long strong neck and pulls like a Belgian horse, so this works very well as a training aid for the pulling. I used a gentle leader for both my Goldens and I have nothing but great praise for this product.

Wonderful product, my dogs do very well with the gentle leader. I loved the fast delivery and great price. This product is over priced at the big box stores.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rottie4 Not sure if it would stay on.
I bought this item because I have a Rottweiler that has issues with other dogs and lounges on site of another dog. I'm afraid if I have an encounter with another dog it would come off. I have used it but didn't run into other dogs. I will say this...it differently improved her healing. I was constantly making her heal by tugging the leash. She likes to be a little ahead of me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by drbe gentle leader headcollar
THIS IS THE BEST KIND OF COLLAR YOU CAN GET (sorry for shouting).... Chewy.com has the BEST price I have found (by $10-$20). Quality is as good as and even better than others. I can't say enough good things about this type of collar. If your dog pulls you around while on a walk......get this collar. No "choking" as with all the other collars. Dogs USUALLY respond very well within minutes - (once they get over the "thing" on their face). Do not waste your money on chain collars. You will not need a "prong" collar either. Buy according to dogs neck measurement RIGHT BEHIND THE EARS. Collar adjusts up to 2 inches larger than ordered measurement for growth. In order to use this head collar correctly - the loop should go over the nose first (lay collar flat and pull up on the loop), with enough slack to slide from the bridge of the dogs nose to the beginning of the soft part of the nose - then set the clasp. Then clip the collar part as high on the neck - behind the ears as possible. Basically - Just pull the "loop" up, and put it on the nose, clasp the "collar" around the neck and snap on the leash & go. I guarantee your dog will behave 100% better with this collar. Instead of pulling backwards on the dog - which encourages a dog to instinctively pull, you are pulling it's face to the side - and everybody knows that a dog does indeed "follow his nose"...it's how they are programed.

On the first day she took it off and snap the clamp. Not happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DoodleMom Love this Gentle Leader
I love this leader. I started out with a bulkier one and my labradoodle would constantly try to get it off. This Petsafe Gentle Leader is great, less bulk and a very pretty pink for my girl. When I put it on her for the first time, she objected for just a few seconds, then she was fine wearing it for about an hour while we shopped at Lowes. I bought the matching leash and put her new collar on that sports a pretty, pink flower. She was a hit at Lowes because of how calm she was; everyone wanted to pet her. The only thing I would change is to add a way to attach it to the collar. That would allow you to maintain control of the dog in case the dog does get it off. Current design would allow the dog to run off if it ever was able to get the gentle lead off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lunchbox Great for our mastiff
This works wonderfully on our 135lb English Mastiff. She's very skiddish around people and a traditional leash or harness set-up was too difficult for my wife and I to use when she tried to run away. The gentle leader has taken all of the pulling away.
