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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by It Really Works BUT Fit is EVERYTHING I have an 11 lb. Poodle-Maltese mix. First I purchased the small based on the sizing recommendations published by PetSafe. I could tighten it to fit around his head and snout, but if he rolled around with it long enough, he could manage to flip the fastener and loosen the strap around his muzzle. I was extremely discouraged because this product has such amazing reviews. I returned the small size for the petite size and now, it works PERFECTLY. If he gets excited by something and starts pulling like a sled dog, the collar turns him around 180 degrees so that he looks at me and we can regroup and behave calmly WITHOUT hurting him! No choking or snorting or discomfort of any kind! It really is gentle--SO much better than a regular collar or harness. I also tried the PetSafe Easy Walk harness and for a dog as small and low to the ground as mine is, it did not work properly. Any tension on the leash pulled his front legs up off the ground as opposed to pulling his whole body straight in my direction. June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is easy to use and works great! Kiki, my Schnauzer-mix weighs only 30# but is so strong and muscular he can pull my 115# down the street without the Gentle Leader. This is his 3rd one. We used them until they are nearly worn out. I highly recommend the product plus the cost at Chewy and their great customer service. September 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by gentle leader headcollar This collar is great quality, with padded nose piece. I have bought several other similar collars, for more than twice the price ($24-$34) of this one. Measurements are right on the money, high quality materials, but the price is EXCELLENT! You can get quick release buckle or metal buckle. This one is well worth the $20, I bought for my pitbull. If you have a dog that pulls when you walk them, try the gentle lead won't be disappointed. August 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Interesting concept. Purchased this gentle lead because we have a 6 mo. old doberman puppy. Was having trouble trying to walk her as she has sooo much puppy energy and strength. I put this collar on and tried it in the back yard. She resisted for awhile but started to calm down alot. Then took a short walk up the street... she still has some problems walking but it's just puppy stuff. all in all I think this is a great idea. It does not hurt her neck in any way and commands her to pay attention to what I want not what she wants. I would recommend this to anyone with a "problem doggie child" ! I am hoping that with more practice with her she will do better. July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very effective Would recommend for any dog lover. Very good training tool July 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, no more pulling! Previously purchased same product in another color. I am impressed with the ease of use. The training time for my one year old Aussiepoo was one day. The Gentle Leader has certainly given me the ability to walk her verses her walking me. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a large dog that likes to pull. June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbelievable I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback---very strong and muscular. After constantly being teased that she was taking me for a walk I decided to try the gentle leader. When I first opened it I thought no way will this flimsy thing work. After a week of using it I can't believe how easy it is to walk her now. I am still keeping her halter on for insurance because this all seems too easy now....but I am sure i won't be using it for long. April 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It Works! I purchased the head collar hoping that it would help lessen my dog's pulling on leash. WOW, did it work! She simply does not pull now. It took her some getting used to and some reassurance as she doesn't like that it goes around her muzzle. But, she is accepting it and it is making training her SO much easier! April 20, 2016
