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.

PetSafe Premier Gentle Leader Quick Release Dog Headcollar, Royal Blue is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from Works well but won't correct the pulling So, a couple of friends recommended the gentle leader to us & said that it would help with pulling on the leash. Well, although it does help tremendously, it won't correct the problem. Unless you're going to use the gentle leader for the duration of your dog's life, it's not going to stop the problem. In the wee hours of the morning, when I didn't feel like messing with putting on the gentle lead to take our dog outside to do his business, I just snapped the leash onto his regular collar & he'd go right back to pulling. I'd look at a training collar instead if you want to correct leash pulling for good.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ended up not using--too close to eyes; front-attach harness worked well Got this and a front-attach harness at the same time, & started to work on getting my 6-mo old Golden used to them. I have never liked how the Gentle Leader looks on dogs, but was at my wit's end. My girl has a bit of eye-drainage at baseline, & I did worry that the Gentle Leader was too close to the ducts; further, the front-harness worked great--she developed sudden understanding of loose leash walking. So I never finished the habituation to the Gentle Leader, & she looks much happier in the front-attach harness than she ever did staring across the snout-loop of the Gentle Leader.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product, great price I've found Gentle Leader head collar to be the most effective tool to use if a dog pulls or just stops during a walk (like my beagle sometimes does). The DVD gives clear information on how to use it. It works better than a no-pull harness. Chewy.com has the best price and the fastest shipping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Changes the way we walked in minutes! I have two pitbulls and the one I bought the gentle leader for is about 55lbs and all muscle. She would drag me down the street like I was a feather. After using the gentle leader we actually made it all the way around the block. It does take getting used to on the dogs end, and she did try to rub it off several times but she got it in the end. The instructions are easy to understand and it helps to be able to make sure you get the most out of it.
