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.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for puppies 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! January 19, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. January 8, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by loved the gentle leader, stops the pulling. 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. December 24, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. November 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not good for puppies On the first day she took it off and snap the clamp. Not happy. October 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.
