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.

Cautions

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.

  • Had to reorder--she slipped off nose collar & chewed it

    By on

    I followed the instructions in the video, putting it on her twice/day with treats then giving her a rawhide to chew while it was on, getting her used to it, for a week. The last day of that (before walking her around the house with it) I looked over and she had chewed the nose part into three pieces! I must've had that part on too loose, to where she could slide it off. I ordered another one. The first day walking her outside with it, it was so foreign to her she bucked against it, but didn't pull. My girl's a puller--she pulls even with a prong collar, would pull so much against it she had red marks on her neck. I felt I needed to buy this. She seems to learn just how much she can pull with I followed the instructions in the video, putting it on her twice/day with treats then giving her a rawhide to chew while it was on, getting her used to it, for a week.

She seems to learn just how much she can pull with this one too without hurting herself. She's a pit bull--they have a really high pain tolerance, especially around the neck. I'm still using it--it's 100x easier to handle her with this (or the prong) than with a standard collar or harness (with the harness, I could strap a wagon to her like a pack mule and have her carry our groceries--she's *really* strong & pulls like crazy). My advice on this would be: watch the video, do it right, take your time, and keep watch that the nose part isn't too tight, but also not so loose that the dog can slip it off and chew it--because s/he will! … more

    I've had this leader for a few months now and it works pretty well, but my dog is a 75-80 lbs black lab/mastiff mix and he's like a bronco. Very strong and he was able to put me down and drag me while he was wearing the leader. If you have a dog that is the opposite of my dog, I'd recommend it. Also, the small black material on the underside of the letter on the nose is rubbing away at my dog's fur the more he pulls. Currently trying to find a different leader.

  • Very delicate

    By on

    The clip that's inserted jammed the third time I inserted it. I had to break one of the three prongs to free it. It worked well to keep our foster collie from pulling though. I'll have to buy another one before she goes to her new home.

  • Finally stopped the pulling!

    By on

    This product is the only thing that has helped my dog to not pull while on walks! He's fairly small (~16 pounds) but very strong and extremely energetic. We've taken his introduction to the Gentle Leader very slowly, using lots of high value treats, and he tolerates it much better than I expected. The design is also adorable and it came with a matching leash included.

  • Too small for big dogs

    By on

    I was surprised at the size of the "large" head collar. The width of it is narrow, as is the leash which we are unable to use with 60 & 70 lb. dogs. The sizes of items are more in line with those for small dogs. The appearance is appealing. Colors are vibrant & look nice against my black Labs' coats.
