Our preferred 'head collar..'
Simply, out of all of the items similar to this, the 'Gentle Leader' is our favorite. More importantly, our dog prefers this. It's not as bulky as the others on the market e.g. Halti, Dogs My Love, etc...this has a 'softer' appearance. Yes, most of them work...this one is less 'off putting' to others that see it and I never get asked if it's a muzzle. These nose straps are only 3/8" wide. Note: to be fair, if your dog is a large dog that pulls, you might want to consider the other brands mentioned...The 'straps' are much thicker...probably stronger too... As for my dog, an 85lb Golden Retriever who doesn't pull at all, this works well. Best wishes...
Miracle for pullers!
I got one of these for both of my dogs who pull on the leash, even with a choke collar. They are amazing! No more pulling! The dogs don't particularly like it -- they sometimes try to rub it off with their paws and I would not use this leash for long distances or long periods of time. However, it's perfect for us, as we just need something for short leash walks that get us to the hike/destination where we can go off leash. Well worth the money. Very glad I tried these!
Hard to operate
This is one of the few gentle leaders small enough for our dog. The metal clip is difficult to close. I had to step on it with my foot, since pliers wouldn't even work. BUT once, it's adjusted, you don't need to do it again. The clip around the head, though, has to be opened and closed with each use. Since it's so small, it's really hard to open. Not what I would call a "quick release". I do like the padded area on the part that goes over his face. I also keeps it from slipping around since it has a suede-like texture.
Great for pulling
My border collie likes to "herd" cars, and the gentle leader is the only thing that has helped deter her from pouncing or trying to run into the street on walks. We've tried treats, harnesses, etc. but this works great! Very gentle on her and on us holding the leash. We have one for our reactive Australian shepherd puppy, and she does amazing on walks with this! Definitely helps her to have a slack leash, and she usually ends up walking next to us rather than in front.
Save your shoulders and wrists!
I have used this product for years. I highly recommend it if you have a dog that tends to pull forward while on a leash. Dogs learn quickly that their head goes down when they get ahead of you and they stop the tugging immediately. You can almost hold the leash with one finger after a few times walking your dog using the Gentle Leader.
Not Tough enough for a Golden Retriever and he was only 9 months old!!!!
I was very excited to order the gentle leader for my GR 9-month-old puppy. He does pull and I'm always looking for products that will help him out on this scenario. It only took a couple of walks with the gentle leader headcollar and somehow as I'm walking him, I see that he CHEWED up the nozzle portion off!!! Not sturdy at all. So disappointed I spend this money for nothing. It does work. I was starting to like the gentle leader headcollar :(
Not recommended for active dogs.
I've used the gentle leader for my Aussie puppy for the last 6 months (he's a year old now). While it's worked for a little while, recently he was able to get it off over his head while on a walk, without unsnapping the closure. My other dog has used the Halti Collar with great success for more than 6 years so I know these types of collars do work but if you have a Houdini, I wouldn't recommend this type of collar.
Good solution for my dog
My dog is a moderate puller on walks especially when he sees another animal. This gentle leader has been so nice! I used to hate taking him on walks but now I don’t mind. He is reactive towards other dogs but we are working on that and this helps me get control of him easier if needed. He can still pull but it’s not enough where I’m struggling to hold him back. I would recommend this as long as your dog doesn’t constantly try to pull while wearing it. I have known some dogs that have developed sores from this product.
This gentle lead is an excellent training tool when used properly as a correction which means it should be kept loose most of the time so the dog learns what to do and how to correct his own mistakes. Any tool is only as good as what it is used for and by the person who’s using it.
Perfect solution - and my dog took to it right away!
My 45 pound mixed breed is very active and generally well behaved and trained. But the fun of an hour walk and fetch session is too much, and she tends to pull. I've tried martingale collar and Easy Walk and she just pulls against it. So I borrowed a Gentle Leader from our trainer and Ruthie took right to it. I followed the instructions for introducing it (she wore it eating dinner, etc) and when I finally put it on she had no objections. Now she walks at a perfect heel for the majority of an hour-long power walk each day (I give her occasional latitude to take care of business). I returned the borrowed GL and bought this one on Chewy - the purple color even goes with her Blueberry collar and leash! Love it!
