Rated 5 out of 5 by Whitney88 These are life savers!
Our dog Molly, who we adopted last March, was very difficult to walk before getting her the Gentle Leader. Luckily, she must have been trained to walk with one since she took to it right away! A couple of months ago, we adopted a second dog Felix who I had found as a stray. He walked well enough without one at first, but he soon became too strong for us to handle easily on walks. We just ordered a second Gentle Leader for him, and although we will clearly need to work with him to get him accustomed to it, he's already showing improvement.
I've always recommend these over harnesses and choke/pinch collars. It's their instinct to pull against pressure, i.e. sled dogs. So by using what is effectively a dog version of a horse halter, where the head goes the body follows...saving our arms in the process!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sammie89 Puppy Panicked
I bought this and somehow was sent 2, charged for 2 whoch was a disappointment. Then i put it on my 4 month old puppy and he began to panick. When I tried taking it off the buckle got stuck! Maybe a good product for grown dogs but my puppy hated it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JulianaFran It works!
At first my dogs didn't like this at all. But that's exactly why I needed it, because I was having issues with the walk and having my dogs feel too superior, which would always lead to barking at other dogs and strangers. So after the first few minutes fighting it, they accept and are much calmer than usual. And once you repeat it, again and again, they don't notice it anymore, and still keep the status a little lower. It's great! It doesn't mean you don't have to correct the bahevior you don't want, but it means the dog responds faster. And it doesn't hurt them all, but you do have to pay attention to how strongly your dog might be trying to get rid of it. One of my puppies took a whole day in the park to try and take it off. She managed to do it a couple of times, but I kept putting it back on and she just gave up. I bought two more gentle leaders. It works for me!

It's like I have a different dog. It's really like magic! My 4 month old golden retriever would pull, jump and lunge so badly that I dreaded to take him in public. After he finally accepted the gentle leader it was absolutely amazing! He really is like a different dog. Thank you, Gentle Leader and Chewey!
