Designed so that owners can communicate with their pet in a way they instinctively understand, the Gentle Leader painlessly and effectively removes the dogs natural tendency to pull by placing gentle pressure on calming points and eliminating uncomfortable pressure on the throat. In addition to reducing a dogs desire to pull away, the Gentle Leader is also a very effective tool in combating lunging, jumping, excessive barking and helping to calm an aggressive and/or anxious animal.
Straps are made of supple nylon:
pressure is applied at the back of the neck vs. the front of the throat.

both neck strap and nose loop can be adjusted independently to create a custom fit.
most dogs acclimate within minutes and respond very quickly.
How does a Gentle Leader compare to other halter-like products?
Simply stated its recommended most often by leading vets and trainers.
the Gentle Leader allows owners to communicate with their pet in a way that dogs instinctively understand. The nose loop encircles the dogs muzzle and applies light pressure in the same manner in which lead dogs naturally communicate with dogs lower in rank. Because of the placement of the nose loop, the dog immediately understands its place in the hierarchy and recognizes the owner as the leader.
Can be custom fit
the Gentle Leader is the only head collar with a fully adjustable nose loop. Once fitted properly, dogs can wear a Gentle Leader for up to 3x longer than other head halters
as long as 16 hours
and cannot paw it off.
the Gentle Leader can be used effectively to control unwanted behaviors ranging from leash pulling and lunging to barking, jumping, chasing, digging and begging; doesnt need safety straps or double-leashing; and can quickly convert to a regular collar.
the Gentle Leader can be purchased in any of 11 colors.
the Gentle Leader kit comes with easy-to-follow fitting instructions, simplified training materials and a more elaborate, multi-media training DVD.
