About PetSafe Gentle Leader

Enjoy an Easier Walk with Your Pup

If your dog tends to pull on the leash, daily walks can be stressful for both of you. PetSafe's Gentle Leader Headcollar and Easy Walk Harness make the task of walking your dog an enjoyable experience. They give you immediate control and they're comfortable for your pet, unlike standard collars that can cause choking.

Less Pulling, More Bonding

Pet parents agree that the Easy Walk Harness makes such a difference that it's like walking a new dog. Instead of pulling your pup's neck, the Easy Walk redirects the entire torso. The leash connects at the chest with a Martingale loop, so a gentle tug moves her whole body in the direction you want to go. Less time playing tug-of-war means more time for bonding with your pet on your walks.

Uniquely Designed for Gentle Control

The Gentle Leader Headcollar puts you, not your eager walking buddy, in control of the walk. The nose loop redirects your dog's head toward you when she pulls. She'll quickly learn that she's not getting anywhere by pulling forward, and you'll have her full attention. The Gentle Leader is ideal for training dogs to heel and teaching them to walk on a leash without pulling.

Get the Perfect Fit

Both the Gentle Leader and Easy Walk come in a variety of sizes to fit any dog comfortably.

The Easy Walk rests across the chest and wraps around the torso. If it looks like a sideways T, you'll know you have the proper fit. With four adjustment points and quick-snap buckles on the shoulder and belly straps, Easy Walk gives a reliable fit.

The Gentle Leader Headcollar slips securely over your dog's nose and sits high on her neck without putting pressure on her throat. It should form a V when fit properly, and your pup will still be able to eat and carry their favorite tennis ball along with them when wearing the Gentle Leader.

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 ?

Let's Go For A Walk !!!

I have 2 labador retrievers that get walked daily, the only concern is that they pull, and if they spot a deer or rabbit it's challenging. Our Veterinarian recently suggested a gentle lead. I could not believe it worked!!! Both, stopped pulling and now we can have fun on our walks. This is a great training tool. I would recommend to anyone with a dog that pulls. Be sure to follow instructions and measure dogs neck for correct size and have snacks available for training.

Lifechanging when it comes to walks! But...

The design of the harness is fantastic. I really didn't think I'd ever be able to enjoy walks with my border collie mix. Whenever Dodger saw another dog (or bird or butterfly or....) he would bark and pull and make walks miserable. This has almost completely stopped the pulling part and we're getting the rest of it under control. The one con is that the stitching either was frayed upon receipt or frayed after a couple of walks. Not sure how long it will hold up, or whether this is a design flaw or just a quality control issue with this one particular harness. Still, I am really happy with the product and would certainly recommend it to others who are struggling, frustrated and ready to give up walking a pulling dog.

Bulldogs can't wear this (just in case you were wondering)

It's a well-made item, and I've seen German Shephards, the biggest Labs you've ever seen and most dogs do well with the head lead. But as the instructions advise, these are not for Bulldogs (English bulldogs, American BULL DOGS, or any dog with a squooshed up (but cute)) face. The second compelling reason NOT to get this for your BULLDOG? They can take it off. 'Member bulldogs are willful and if they don't want to do something, they won't.

Listed appropriate size worked for our 9lb Chihuahua!

I have no idea if this looks too tight on him, I hope not. I was super happy that this fit him because he's a Chihuahua and his face is weird. Chewy also has a great return policy afaik so I would try it if you're also a Chihuahua owner!

Best training tool EVER

My 1 year old Jack Russel mix was a horrible walker. She was always pulling, lunging at other dogs & barking. I bought this as a last ditch effort to try and stop the pulling and reactivity. It’s worked wonders. The first time putting it on her she jumped around and pawed at her snout and rolled in the grass to try and get it off, but the 2nd time I put it on her she walked GREAT. No pulling, no lunging & no barking. It seems to be a great fit & has seriously been a game changer, I only wish I would have bought this sooner.

Effective But She Still Hates It

I'm able to get our energetic puppy exercise by using this but after weeks of trying, she still has not gotten used to it. She can't pull as hard, and she's fine when she's busy exploring . But she still nosedives to the ground and paws at it on occasion, I can't say that has lessened at all over time.

Wow! I'm very very impressed! We have been trying to walk our dog for years on leash and this is literally the only thing that has worked. I even had a trainer come in, used a shock collar, a front leash, etc. I think we have gone through every possible option. Today was our first day and I don't have blisters on my hand! I feel like I FINALLY have control of my dog! We are still working on it especially wanting to go meet the dogs at the park, but other than that he walked wonderful!

Great walking trainer

We had previously used a chest harness, but when our 9 month old 60lb golden retriever pup outgrew it we were looking for a different option. The gentle leader gives him immediate feedback and he knows our walking expectations so much better now. Even my kids(10,7,5) can walk him now without him pulling them along!

Better than before

We got a Gentle Leader for our big, strong, stubborn dog about the year 2000. We tried various solutions, some of which worked and some didn’t, but the Gentle Leader was the best by far. We now have another dog of similar temperament now, and I couldn’t find our Gentle Leader. This is a slightly improved version with padding for the nose (not really necessary for most dogs) and a great instruction sheet. That sheet may even allow me to convince my husband not to make it too loose. I don’t know that this would work for shorter-nosed dogs, but our German Sheppard can’t get it off, and I can now take her for a walk without her trying to walk me. Be aware that most dogs don’t like it at first, but soon become accustomed to it.

At first I was annoyed at the instructions. Then watched a video and had an ah-ha moment. My dog is pretty easy except when it comes to walking. Strong as an ox. Got him into the leader pretty easily and off we went with treats in my pocket. GAME CHANGER. It’s like walking a different dog. No pull, no lunge. I wish I had this 5 years ago.
