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.

  • Daisy is amazing

    By on

    This product transformed my dog into a very obedient walker. The first time Daisy walked with the gentle leader she tried to turn her head. I stopped and said no and resumed walk , this stop start only happened on first walk. No more pulling, I walk her now instead of her trying to walk me! LOL. The medium size is perfect (shes 27 lbs) raspberry color very girlie.

  • Perfect for pullers!

    By on

    My pupper used to drag me on walks and now she's so much better. At first she hated the harness and would drag her face along the grass, trying to get it off. Now she hardly notices it and walking time is so much easier

  • Stops pulling instantly

    By on

    I have tried choke collars both pronged and unpronged for our strong male Doberman. The pronged one worked but I felt bad for using it. The nylon choke collar slipped off until his neck and didn't work. The gentle leader worked instantly and I have no worries about him pulling me anymore. Love it!

  • Love the headcollor but the nose clip needs to be stronger

    By on

    The headcollar did what it was supposed to do in that it kept the dog from constantly pulling. However the clip on the nose part broke the second day. Chewy is replacing at no charge. I really liked the control it gives me. I sure hope the new one lasts.

  • It works well

    By on

    The Gentle Leader works well. I'm disabled and use a Segway as my mobility device. The Leader keeps my dogg from pulling me off of it. (No worry, even if a cat causes the dog to try to "bolt".) I have used one of these on my last 3 doggs. My neurotic 'healer' was not happy about it at first, but quickly got used to it. It's nice because it allows them to drink, or have a treat while wearing it. I will use a Gentle Leader for every new dogg I get!!

  • The absolute best!!

    By on

    My dog is a large Rottweiler- German Sheperd mix and is notorious for pulling and being in control of the walk. I admit it does take time for the pet to adjust to having the head harness on but with distractions and treats it is easy to adjust them. There is even a DVD to help you make the adjustment! But on to the outcome, she LITERALLY walked next to my side the entire time!! She has never done that, I will be recommending this product over and over again!

    This is the only lead I will ever use on my dogs. Its humane, safe and really helps control even the strongest breeds. I highly recommend this to all dog owners-it makes a world of difference - Im walking my dog-not my dog dragging me!
