Questions & Answers

I have a Rottweiller German shepherd mix and she is a powerful puller! I got the head collar but she paws at it and lays down refusing to move. How long does it take for the dogs to accept wearing it? It is quite stressful for her and I right now.
Answer by ChewyNov 27, 2017
The adjustment process is different for all dogs, we recommend that during the first week of use you place the collar on during meal time immediately before and after feeding for them to get accustomed to the collar. Put the collar on your dog daily for about 3 minutes or less and while in the collar give the dog praise and treats to help them associate it with a positive action. From there, continue to repeat these steps and then try to take the dog on a 5 minute walk while giving praise and treats for a positive outcome.

some collars come with a padding that goes around the nose area, does this gentle leader have padding on it?
Answer by ChewySep 01, 2018
All PetSafe Premier Gentle Leaders now feature padding for the nose area. I've included an image for reference.

how do you tighten the nose piece
Answer by ChewyOct 05, 2022
To adjust the nose loop, snap the neck strap high on the neck at it's pre-fitted position. Make the final adjustment to the nose loop by sliding the snap clamp up or down to adjust. With your thumb and index finger, pinch nose loop underneath the snap clamp, temporarily holding it. For further instructions, click on the 'Instructions' tab, just under the product photos, where the 'User Manual' is located.

Making sure this comes with an instructional DVD ?
Answer by ChewyJul 19, 2018
This product includes a training DVD.

life Saver!

This harness is great. I recently adopted a stray we found. Was a total foster fail, anyways she has no walking skills and wouldn’t even make it out of the driveway for a walk. With this harness we were able to take her on her first full walk! Will continue to use to train. This dog has unlimited energy and is exhausted from her walk!

Product arrived already open

This item came already open. It was a reshipped return. I tried it anyway and my dog froze completely. She hated it. She did the same thing with the traditional collar after being spayed. Vet called it E collar paralysis. It's weird, I know. I called Chewy to let them know the package was cut open and the collar was just shoved back into the package and they refunded it immediately and said to donate the collar. Good idea! Just reviewed item in case anyone else has a dog like mine.

Problem Solved!

I have a lovely 9 month old Keeshond puppy who would simply not stop pulling. I tried everything. I saw this product on a dog in town and his owner raved about it, so I ordered one. It came quick, of course. After 10 minutes of meltdown, misdirection and reassurance, my puppy was walking PERFECTLY! She was walking beside me, sniffing things, looking around, and most importantly looking at me again, not pulling me off my feet!

Pawfect for my dog

This collar has made a huge difference in walking my springer doodle! It works and looks fashionably cute too!! She knows what to expect and has made walking and going out much more enjoyable! All the cute colors made it hard to choose- but that raspberry one won my heart! I even ordered an apple green one for my other dog!!

Great for us!

Odin has other animal anxiety which restricts us from many places but after our surgical team suggested the gentle lead we’ve been doing much better and correcting faster and with less effort on both our parts!

Giant Breed Owners Beware

We ordered the extra large 12" - 28" neck head collar for our Great Dane. The loop for the snout has a metal clasp that stays in place very well. The neck loop, however, has a plastic slider that will not stay in place and loosens the whole fit of the head collar with little to no pressure. Needless to say our dog was able to get out of it almost on accident. Thankfully we tested it in a fenced back yard and not out in the open.

Greatest thing since slicced bread

I have a three year old, 48 pounds of muscle. She had not been leash trained when I adopted her. This gentle leader makes a HUGE difference.

It clearly says, "Gentle Leader PADDED No Pull Dog Headcollar". It is not padded at all, which is specifically what I was looking for. It is straight nylon, with no padding. I will be returning it.

Effective until it's not...

This headcollar is a great tool and has been helpful in training my poodle mix rescue... until she figured out how to snap her head and release the collar, twice on two very busy roads. Very scary. The collar was on correctly, well snapped each time; and I experienced the same issue with 2 units. Now looking for another option. Recommend with reservations...

Helps pulling alot

Without this, my dog pulls so hard on the lease. So much he begins to cough. The first few times he hated it but now he accepts it as part of the walk. This also helps a lot with preventing my 5-month-old bernedoodle from trying to pick up every piece of trash from the street. I don't know if i will ever stop using this mainly because I walk in NYC where thee is so much trash on the street.
