My cocker/corgi cross has a short nose and in order to keep him from removing the nosepiece from his nose (because it blocks his sight a little) I have to make it pretty tight - but he needs to be able to pant on our walks. Still working on that. While it's on him, though (until he gets disgusted and determined to remove it) it truly does stop his pulling. Normally he acts like a sled dog (and I'm the sled)!
Gentle Leader itself gets 5 stars because it works great. However the dominant color ended up being is pink, not red like the picture shows.
Lead attaches to end of snout loop witch is adjusted with a largish metal buckle. So you actually leading dog by top of snout,totally useless thing
Asking for replacement. This medium is too big for my dog.
It's a godsend. Without it, I would not be able to control my 85 pound yellow lab safely. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And did I say that she loves the print <3
It takes a bit for the dog to get used to having this on their nose but there is an easy way to train the dog to it. Put it on, say, "Good dog!", give a treat, take it off. "Rinse and repeat" several times. This is so much better than a harness because you are controlling the head. Where the head goes, the body must follow so turn to the right and the dog turns to the right, etc.
I’ve got a 4yo 45 pound mutt that is all muscle. I’ve used a harness on her since she was a puppy. Unfortunately she does just okay when I walk with her on the harness, but is terrible for everyone else in the house. It took maybe 4 minutes of taking it on and off multiple times just to get her use to it. After that, she has completely stopped pulling with EVERYBODY so now I’m mad at myself for waiting 4 years to use this
Decided to upgrade our 9m Great Dane pup from the plain black gentle leader to the Poppy one in hopes that everyone would stop calling her a very big/handsome boy. That part didn’t work but her new collar and leash are the same fantastic quality as her previous one and, as always, makes walks much more enjoyable for her and us.
The head halter fits nicely the light blue background with the bone shapes goes great with his lighter golden colar it works for what I need it to do helps me to keep him from picking up thing he shouldn’t
The scent of the litter was so overwhelming that it made my family nauseous. If you are scent sensitive I would recommend skipping this product in favor of an unscented lightweight litter. Also due to the lightweight litter we found that it would stick to our cats paws more than traditional litter and they would track it around the house. Other than that the product performed well with clumping.
