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.

Design change (metal not plastic clasp)

Love the Gentle Leader (in general) and the one pictured above would get a 5. The Gentle Leader itself is a great product (with the ORIGINAL design). I ordered in in grey (to fit in with my pups coloring and be less obvious), but the clasp under her neck was made of metal and not plastic. The metal tends to rub her which makes her not as comfortable, and comes undone in-between use (it HAS stayed clasped when on her and in use, which is why I am giving it a 3 instead of a 1). If I continue to use it (instead of going back to the black), I will put duck tape over the meta on the nose to keep it in place and to avoid metal against her skin. I would recommend the Gentle Leader in general because it is AWESOME for dogs who pull and has been a game changer when it comes to walking my puppy. The metal clasp drops it from a 5+ to a 3.

Seems to work as intended

We just got an 18 month old Ridgeback mix rescue which has had zero training. He has spent his life either confined or on the street as a stray. We have only had him a couple of weeks. He absolutely hates it. He jumps around attempting to pull it off as soon as I put it on. However once the lead is on it seems to work well. He settles in and heels. So far I have only used it in the house and in the yard as I am working up to taking him on more extended walks.

Most effective non-pull method I've found.

I have two large breed labs (90-100lbs each). Walking them together has not been possible this past year. My older pup is a good walker but will drag me if he sees a dog/person he knows, and the pup is strong as a bull and bursting with energy. But walking each dog a few miles each day individually just isn't feasible anymore. Thankfully I had purchased this a few years back for my first dog and decided to try it on the pup. He HATED it -- I LOVED IT!! Sure they might buck like a bronco for a bit and they'll fight it initially, but within two minutes of walking, my pup understood he was no longer in control. With positive reinforcement, this works! Ordering a second one today to finally walk both dogs with ease. Thank you!

A Shoulder Saver

I have a very high energy 60lb dog who would yank my shoulder almost out of socket trying to drag me everywhere. Having this has been night and day. The only downside is it's taking him some time to feel comfortable with it on, but it's easily put on, and takes almost no effort to redirect him. Buying a 2nd for my other pup who I never even noticed dragging my arm by comparison until now.

Best training leash yet

My six-month-old puppy is 62 pounds and a dedicated leash puller. I was struggling and becoming frustrated trying to train him and protect my arms and back from his pulling. I tried a harness, which helped a little but he still would jerk on my arm. He truly is a gentle soul, so I did not want to use any negative reinforcement. This gentle leash, along with advice from a master trainer has helped so much more than I ever could imagine. Is he perfect yet? No, but it's much easier to control him and get him to walk nicely next to me. I can also control his excitement with meeting new people. The leash is not tight on his muzzle or throat. Currently, I use it along with a halter with a double leash-one on the gentle leader and on the front of the halter. I'm really happy with the result, and he is getting better on the leash every day.

The snap clamp wouldn't hold

The snap clamp wouldn't hold tight and our 150 lb mastiff slipped her collar. Luckily, I had her main collar on so I could tighten that down and get her home. Chewy is replacing this one with another - hoping this was a defective unit.

Inconsistent garbage

Total waste of time and money. The neck strap fit good with a lot of strap left over. The lead strap was WAY too short. I figured I must be putting it on wrong, so at next Vet appointment I took the harness with me to see if the vet could show me how to put it on. Same results. Neck strap had a lot of excess and the lead strap was so short the dog could not lift his head, even with the strap maxed out. It would seem the neck strap and the lead strap are 2 different sizes. We also noticed that there is no metal ring to connect a leash. This product is just inconsistent garbage. Shame on Chewey for selling this.

Gentle lead makes for easier walks

My little prince, Finn, is a corgi who has enough torque when he pulls to pull me to the ground. We tried various training collars and harnesses without much luck until we found the gentle lead. Now I can keep Finn moving with me and save my shoulder from dislocation when he finds a tasty tidbit of whatever that he suddenly must have at that instant. Training was pretty easy with the included instructions. We are on our second gentle lead just to make sure the cushion around his nose stays soft. The first last three years with daily use.

returns are nearly impossible

I bought a product that did not work well with my pet. I needed to return the product so I went on chewy but found it nearly impossible to make a return.

Not getting dragged anymore

Dog much easier to walk with this collar. Gentle leader has a good design, but it is a bit lightweight compared to Halti's brand. However, Halti made a good quality but the design lacked an adjustment for the snout and both my dogs could slip out of it. The gentle leader has a clip to adjust the part at the snout. Great design, but cheaply made so 4 stars vice 5.
