Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenny7 A must for walking my Great Dane
The Gentle Leader has really been a life saver for me! I love walking my young Great Dane, but as she got bigger it became harder to control her. She is an awesome, well behaved dog, but sometimes when she sees another dog she gets a bit excited and this just reminds her to stay close. She is not at all hesitant to wear it, and stands patiently when I attach it and then we are off for a walk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Inspirion The gentle leader is awesome!!!!
This product definitely keeps my dog from pulling me down the street! I would encourage everyone to purchase one. It took a few days of having it on for short times and progressed in to going for our walks. My best advice is to watch the DVD. It helped me much more than just reading the instructions. Buy one and you will wonder why you didn't do this sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annabwylde Who's walking whom? The fight is over-let peace reign, Oh Gentle Leader.
Our generally pacific and sweet 9-year-old mini goldendoodle turned into raw brute power on leash. It was a contest of wills that, mostly, I lost. Not any more. Once he got used to the strap around his snout (even though it's loose and doesn't inhibit any mouth action, dogs don't like it at first. Who would?) he calmed right down. Magically, we walk in step, there's no pulling, dragging, or dislocating body parts-- mine or his. It's a pleasure for both of us. I don't know why it took me so long to get the Gentle Leader for him (a high duh! factor here). Got one for our rambunctious 6-month-old Havanese puppy, too. Though he's still hypnotized by the wondrous smells of city streets, he's figured out pulling to get his nose right up in them isn't gonna work. He's morphed into an easy-going, happy walking companion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Romandipity For a pleasant walk please use!
I have used this product on many the difficult walker. It is awesome, especially for those who aren't strong enough to get dragged around by their pup. It has worked on both my great dane and little dog alike (along with my parents dogs of which they have 3). The only downfall can be an adjustment period for the stubborn pups... they may try to scratch it off their nose as they're not used to it but just keep walking! I promise it will work but you have to take the lead. It is not meant to be tight (this is not a muzzle) but creates a harness that when they pull turns their head back toward you and off-puts their forward motion. No torture or strong-arm needed ;o)

Rated 3 out of 5 by PuppysMom OK but not great
I was searching for something other than the Halti headcollar I was using because my dog is constantly trying to rub it off and hates wearing it, although it does a reduce pulling greatly. The gentle leader is less offensive to my dog to wear, but it twists and doesn't prevent pulling quite as effectively. It is a great backup, but not our go-to walking gear. I do like it comes in other than black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Labfriends No more pulling
Our 8month old black lab used to pull until I thought my arm would leave my shoulder. Not any more!
