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.

  • Gentle Leader Headcollar

    By on

    I ordered this item because I wanted a pink headcollar for my girl dog. Chewy was the only site I found that carried it. Upon receiving, I found out that the strap that goes around the muzzle has a felt-like lining, which makes it more comfortable for my dog to wear the collar. My dog still tries to get rid of it but not as furiously as she used to when she had her old headcollar on that does not have a lining.

  • Best thing since sliced bread!

    By on

    My dog is an extreme "puller" when walking on leash, no amount of training has helped, but I put this leader on and what a change! At first she tried to wriggle it off, but after realizing she got longer walks with it on she doesn't fight it at all. Our walks are now pleasurable and no more "tugging or pulling". I would definitely recommend this leader.

  • FINALLY!!!

    By on

    I have a very rambunctious senior lab who struggles containing her excitement. I have tried other forms of antipulling devices that failed. This is more humane and effective. It redirects the head instantly and corrects the bad behavior. We have had no more problems on our daily walks. Love and will recommend to others

  • Gentle leader

    By on

    Bought this for my Great Dane who is 3 yrs old. She was having NO part of it. Perhaps if I had started using it at an earlier age she would have accepted it, but wasnt worth the effort to try and get her used to it.

  • Dog hates it and that's a good thing.

    By on

    My pup will wipe her face along the ground trying to get it off because it doesn't allow her to pull me like she wants. I love it! She is just going to have to get used to it. Buying another for my younger puppy.

  • 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.

  • Will not wear it

    By on

    We can not get this on Hope it seems to scare her. Must be because it goes on her nose. We have tried many times to use it but she gets upset just seeing it so we will donate it.
