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.

  • Improved me and my dogs life!!!!!!!

    I have a 1yr full blood pit bull weighing at least 95lbs, and I am a 130lb 5'2 female. Trying to walk him was SOOOOOO bad that I just gave up. He's very protective over mommy so I always worried when passing by men especially if they simply said hey. He would pull so badly on a harness anytime we saw a person, a bird, and just because he liked pulling me around because I'm so little. This collar works MIRACLES!!! I trained him on getting used to it for a week (just putting it on giving him a treat and taking it off after a few minutes followed by another treat). Afterwards I started to clip his leash (which is very flimsy) to the collar, followed by a treat. A few days later I clipped on the I have a 1yr full blood pit bull weighing at least 95lbs, and I am a 130lb 5'2 female. Trying to walk him was SOOOOOO bad that I just gave up.

A few days later I clipped on the leash and walked him around the house and he absolutely hated it so I gave him treats when he wouldn't shake his head or try to get it off. I took him out to the bathroom with the leash for the first time and noticed an IMMEDIATE difference, even though he was still antsy. After a few more days I started talking him on short walks and yesterday we did a 20min walk WITH NO PROBLEMS!!!! (after training with the collar for 3 weeks). Today we walked 15 mins!!! I can literally control him with my pinky finger! I love this leash so much and the fact that I can take my big baby for walks now instead keeping him cooped up in the house!!!! … more

  • Nice headcollar but it could be sturdier

    By on

    I love the Gentle Leader and it makes walks with my dog so much more pleasant. The big problem I have with these is that the straps are kind of thin and my dog can chew through them in less than a minute. I think I bought 4 or 5 of these and I just have to call it quits at this point. If I leave them somewhere she can reach, she'll chew through them. If I take my eyes off her when I'm out on a walk, to talk to a neighbor for example, she can chew through it. I'm trying out the Easy Walk from PetSafe and she's chewing through that too. I think I might have to switch back to a regular Martingale collar until I find something that can last more than a month (hoping she'd grow out of the chewing) I love the Gentle Leader and it makes walks with my dog so much more pleasant.

  • Love this headcollar

    By on

    This product has helped so much during walks! Even though our pup only have 3 legs he's a puller! We tried a harness that latches in the front and he would still pull, this has effectively stopped almost all his pulling! He HATED it at first but once he got used to the feel and realized it was a means to an end (he loves walkies), he's more than eager to get this thing on to go on a walk! It does take a while for them to get used to it and they may try to claw it off. I started by putting it on him for about 20 min before the walk to get used to the feel and that seemed to help a lot.

  • Life Saver!!!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    Cinnamon genuienly likes her gentle leader because now she doesn't choke herself when she pulls. It is impossible to take her for a walk on a regular flat collar because she pulls and chokes herself the whole time. Harnesses dont work great for us either because she has little hair on her stomach and they tend to give her blisters. The gentle leader does not completely eliminate her pulling, she is very stubborn, but when she does pull at least she isn't putting pressure on ther throat. It makes walk time much more enjoyable for both of us!

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I love this thing!!! It is so helpful when people come over and even for walks. Our dog is 75 pounds and would rip the leash out of our kids hands, then we got the gentle leader and my children can lead her with on finger!! I just can't say enough good things about this! I would buy this again.

  • Best purchase for dog walking eva!

    By on

    I worked hard to teach my dog to heel. He is an Aussie and does pretty well...until he sees another dog, a person, a squirrel...etc. Then he lunges ahead, chokes himself to death, and pulls me along. The gentle leader solved that problem. He is still getting used to it but he puts his head right through the nose hoop with a treat waiting. He does not pull at all during walks anymore and is a pleasure to walk..even with other dogs. This is a great tool. I feel better when my friend dog sits too, since she is small and in her 70's. He can't pull her-so much safer.

    This is a great product. This is the second one we've had. I noticed an extra layer around the muzzle has been added that I think is more comfortable for my dog.

  • Great item for most dogs alternative to choker or pinch

    Gentle leaders are the way to go. Takes some getting used to for the pup but once they are comfortable, it is great.
