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.

  • 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!

  • product works great!

    By on

    There isn't much to this harness, yet it makes walking with my pitbull a breeze considering she likes to pull. It took a bit for her to get used to this being on, but once she did there is a dramatic difference when I walk her. I would definitely recommend this is you have a dog that likes to pull.

  • GREAT for Giant Breeds

    By on

    I LOVE my Gentle Leader. Nothing else worked for my Great Dane. His chest is too deep and shoulders too narrow for the harness so I decided to give the gentle leader a try. It took quite a while for him to get used to and required A LOT of patience with training, but once he understood what was going on- the was the best purchase I made for him to date.

  • Great walking tool!

    By on

    I love this little gadget. It is my second one. I accidentally stepped on the clip of the first one when it dropped on the ground while taking it off and it broke. Jade doesn't pull at all and she walks so nicely. Will never be without one!

  • 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!!

  • Really works!

    By on

    From the first time we put it on our Golden Retriever, it worked. Doesn't get the dog going if she's holding back, but it does a great job eliminating her pulling ahead!

  • 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.
