Description

The PetSafe Gentle Leader Dog Chic Headcollar prevents pulling, lunging, jumping, and other undesired behaviors with immediate control. Unlike traditional collars, this leader places pressure on the back of the neck instead of the front of the delicate throat, preventing choking and coughing. The nose loop allows you to direct your pup’s head in the direction you want to go, training your dog to stop pulling and start paying attention during walks. Help refocus your furry friend’s attention away from the squirrel, dog, or stranger across the street, and keep him focused and calm when out and about.

Key Benefits
  • Reduces pulling on the leash and other unwanted behaviors such as barking, lunging, or jumping.
  • A great accessory for training dogs to heel or focus by providing immediate gentle control.
  • Collar sits high on your dog’s neck, keeping pressure on the back of the neck instead of the delicate throat.
  • Adjustable nylon straps and neoprene padded nose loop provide maximum comfort for prolonged wear.
  • Pick a fun and vibrant pattern that matches your pup’s personality best.
What's Included

Fitting instructions & Training DVD.

Additional Details

Follow instructions carefully when fitting and using on bulldogs and other breeds with genetically limited airways or flat noses. It is typical for these dogs to frequently experience breathing difficulties when exercising or under stress because of their physically limited airways. If their usual breathing difficulties increase when wearing the head collar, immediately discontinue use and consult your veterinarian.

Instructions
  • Open neck strap and hold one end in each hand. The nose loop should hang down, like the letter T.

  • Position the neck strap as high up as possible, just behind the ears. Gently pull any excess skin and coat down and out from under the neck strap.

  • Neck strap must be snug so only one finger can fit under it, and it cannot rotate around the neck. If the neck strap rotates, so will the nose loop, which may cause chafing of the skin.

  • Remove the headcollar neck strap and prepare to fit the nose loop up through the centerbar ring. Be ready with some tasty treats.

  • Hold the nose loop open and feed a treat through the loop. You want to encourage your dog to place his nose through the loop by offering a treat.

  • Snap neck strap high on the neck at its pre-fitted position. Make final adjustment to nose loop by sliding the snap clamp up or down to adjust. With thumb and index finger, pinch nose loop underneath the snap clamp, temporarily holding it.

  • Test fit the nose loop by pulling it forward. When it touches the beginning of the fleshy part of the nose, but is not so loose that you can pull it off the nose, close snap clamp by pressing down on tab, you'll hear a snap as it locks. Connect leash to "O" ring.

  • Final fit. When properly fitted and viewed from the side headcollar will resemble a "V" and the center bar will rest above the tracheal area.

  • Pretty, but, Flimsy leash

    By on

    This is my third gentle leader that I've gotten for my 90+ lb. Chocolate lab. It's just as functional and good looking as the others, however, the matching leash on this one is very thin and cheaply made--also, somewhat shorter than the others I've gotten that come with the head leash. I use one of my older leashes when I walk her which doesn't match. Disappointed in the downgrade on the leash.

  • Great training tool!

    By on

    We’re really enjoying the gentle leader so far! It’s a cute design and feels soft and well made. I would definitely recommend acclimating your dog to the gentle leader, on an individual basis. I bought this originally for my dog reactive pittie girl. A trainer had recommended a prong collar, because she goes crazy when she sees another dog, lunges and pulls. The prong did work, but didn’t seem to be teaching her much, because as soon as it was off, she would behave the same, so I wanted to try something else. We also have a boxer mix that is a very strong puller, who will be walking fine and then very unexpectedly dart if he sees a squirrel, smells something he wants to pee on, or if he gets We’re really enjoying the gentle leader so far!

We also have a boxer mix that is a very strong puller, who will be walking fine and then very unexpectedly dart if he sees a squirrel, smells something he wants to pee on, or if he gets startled (he startles easily, such as when he hears wind chimes or steps on dead leaves lol) Our boxer mix has done wonderfully on the gentle leader. He was instantly calmer and more well behaved with it on. He no longer pulls as badly, and he is more receptive to the leave it command, and has done well leaving things like squirrels and fire hydrants alone. He still picks up the pace and gets ahead of me sometimes, but I simply stop, turn around and lead him in another direction and then back again and he will stay with me after that. He walks so well on it that sometimes I find myself checking to make sure it’s still attached because I feel no tension whatsoever! My pittie has also adjusted to it, but she has adjusted more slowly. She does well on it and doesn’t pull at all, but if we see another dog she still reacts, and she often reacts by suddenly trying to rub the head harness off. She does seem to be more receptive to commands however, and I ask her to sit and wait until she’s calm before we continue on. She’s not food motivated AT ALL, so training has been more of a challenge. She does sometimes get stubborn on it and will suddenly stop and not want to walk, this didn’t happen with the prong. But she’s doing better and better with every walk. So I would definitely say, each dog is an individual and will adjust to this head halter at a different pace. Overall we are really impressed! I originally only bought one but I have another coming with my next autoship so that we can see how walking together while both are on the gentle leader will work out! These gentle leaders on chewy are WAY less expensive than they are at the pet store. I believe I saw the plain black one at the pet store for $25. Thanks Chewy and PetSafe! … more

  • Fun Design for a Helpful Product

    By on

    We all know that Gentle Leaders are not punitive, but for better control of keeping those little noses/heads directed. Make sure you let your pooch know that. Treating while placing the Gentle Leader on and maybe the pup wearing it around the house for very short amounts of time, without a lead attached, can also help to convey that message and help to make it's use a better experience for both of you. The patterns are so fun that I bought one in medium and one in large, to allow for the dog's growth. I puppy raise for Leader Dogs for the Blind and they occasionally allow for use of these. This is a great price for a very helpful dog training aide. The little extra leash is a bonus.

I wouldn't use it with the Gentle Leader, but it's a nice little extra leash to keep in the car for emergency. Gentle Leader's should be worn combined with another collar (flat buckle or Martingale) and a lead that can connect to both should be used. The dog tagged collar should be connected on one end of the lead so that in case the GL comes off, the dog can not get lose off leash to run away. Maybe Chewy could show an example of what can be purchased with a Gentle Leader for correct use. … more

  • Very Cute!

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I've been using the gentle leader since I adopted my dog and it works wonders for us! I had picked up the only one they had in the store the day I brought her some, which happened to be red, and everyone always thought she was a boy. So I decided to upgrade to this cute version and we love it!

  • Fits my pitty’s Meaty head perfectly

    By on

    I was concerned that because my pitty has such a blocky head that maybe I should size up, but I ordered the one for her weight class and it surprisingly fits perfectly! This has really made our hikes much more enjoyable and she’s finally learning to be courteous on a leash.

  • Great, even for a stubborn, strong dog.

    By on

    We have a 1 yr old german shepherd mix. She would pull terribly on any other collar or harness. This Gentle Leader has changed walking for us. She even willingly put it on to go out for walks. Great product!!!!! And she looks so cute in it.

  • The Gentlest of Walks

    By on

    Wonderful product! My pit bull mix, though very friendly, she is also very strong and high energy. This lead has made all the difference. It took a few walks to get use to but now she doesn’t seem bothered by it at all.

    This gentle leader is great! It arrived just as described and I received it in just two days since I had other items that I needed for my fur babies. I love the pattern and the functionality!

  • Best thing ever and adorable design!!

    By on

    I LOVE gentle leaders and I love this pretty one! The adorable design helps and makes it look nonthreating in anyway. Then the matching leash is just amazing!! We have a dog who pulls a lot when we walk her. But we put this on her and a toddler could now walk her!! And she is half Great Pyrenees and half Komondor, so she’s a big girl!! They are better than harnesses also because harnesses allow dogs to more comfortably pull but this doesn’t hurt them at all and discourages pulling.
