Description

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.

  • Walking my dog is becoming easier with time!

    By on

    I bought this head collar for my border collie mix that has a slight issue with pulling, and I can tell this is making a big difference. I'm really glad that this collar also comes with a DVD with a step by step guide to help properly fit your dog and help your dog ease into this collar. Luckily, I didn't have issues with introducing my dog to the collar and she allowed me to put it on. While she is still getting used it it, she will try to pull it off, but I think with time she will learn to accept it. My only minor quibble is that, when I take the head collar off, it leaves a mark on her nose. Maybe I should resize, but overall, I am so glad I bought this product!!

  • Cheaply made, poor design, will leave your dog with a bald nose even if fit properly

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    This is one of the cheapest of the head-collar-style leads. The nylon webbing used is thin, has rough edges, and will rub the hair off the top of your dog's nose as it shifts during your walks. And it is far too easy for the average dog to pull off over their nose, even if fit properly. As someone who has tried many brands of these head-collars, and has worked with horses and their halters (the inspiration behind these) for decades, trust me when I say to go with the Halti brand instead. Halti uses a headpiece (behind the ears) that is solidly attached across to the noseband, and it is padded to protect your dog's nose.

Halti uses a headpiece (behind the ears) that is solidly attached across to the noseband, and it is padded to protect your dog's nose. The Gentle Leader is just a loop of nylon with a clip on it threaded through another piece of nylon, and allows far too much movement. Halti also doesn't require any finicky fitting like Gentle Leader does. Just slip it on over your dog's nose, adjust and buckle the piece that goes behind their ears, and you're good to go. That being said, these are great training tools to use when teaching your dog to walk nicely on a leash. However, please, please read the instructions that come with them for fitting and use. If you have to go with this brand, the nose strap should be loose around your dog's nose, just short enough that it won't slip off over their nose, and should NEVER be used with a Flexi or other retractable leash. The entire point of the halter-collar is that it is loose and comfortable until the dog pulls, then it tightens up and turns them back towards you. I can't tell you how many times I've seen miserable dogs in these things either with them cinched up tight right under their throat or constantly having to crank their neck around against the pull of a retractable leash. Don't expect this to be a "miracle" and get you out of training your dog to walk on a leash, but it is a great training tool. I definitely do not recommend this particular one, but they are definitely worth a try! … more

  • Gentle leader

    By on

    It won't work on my German Boxer because she has such a flat nose. The Thunder Leash/Halter works much better on dogs that don't have much of a snout.

  • Great for puppies

    By on

    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!

  • Gentle Leader

    By on

    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.

  • Not sure if it would stay on.

    By 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.

    We LOVE the bright pink color! Also the gentle leader is helping train my husky to walk with me, instead of pull me.
