Is your dog constantly pulling on the leash, making walks a struggle? Do you dread going on walks because your pup lunges and strains against their collar? Then the PetSafe Gentle Leader Headcollar is the ultimate solution to stop your dog’s pulling and make walks enjoyable again.

This headcollar gently guides your dog’s head to interrupt their instinct to pull, letting you regain control of the walk. The design was created by a veterinary behaviorist, so it’s a proven effective and humane method to stop pulling recommended by vets.

The Gentle Leader Headcollar fits securely and comfortably around your dog’s nose and neck. The padded nose loop prevents chafing while the adjustable neck strap ensures a customized fit. Your dog can pant, drink and eat normally while wearing this headcollar.

It’s easy to put on and take off, with quick-snap straps for convenience. We’ll go over proper fitting shortly, but it’s a breeze to get the perfect adjustment for your dog in just minutes.

This headcollar is made from durable nylon with neoprene padding for breathability and comfort during walks. It comes in various sizes to fit dogs from 15 to over 130 pounds.

Let’s go over the main features and benefits of the PetSafe Gentle Leader:

Stops Pulling by Redirecting Your Dog’s Head

The Gentle Leader controls pulling by turning your dog’s head toward you when they start to pull. This interrupts their forward momentum and instinct to strain against the leash.

It applies gentle pressure behind their neck and around their nose to discourage pulling. But it’s not painful or uncomfortable when fitted properly. The pressure is just enough to get your dog’s attention and deter them from pulling.

You’ll notice a huge difference in your dog’s walking behavior right away! No more being dragged down the street or constant tug-of-war against your dog’s pulling.

Recommended by Vets and Trainers

This headcollar is veterinarian-recommended and designed by Dr. R.K. Anderson, a veterinary behaviorist. It follows sound behavioral principles to stop your dog from pulling using redirection, not punishment or force.

Trainers and behaviorists frequently recommend the Gentle Leader as an effective solution to change pulling habits. It can be used alone or along with training to teach your dog to walk nicely on a loose leash.

When an expert in animal behavior created this product, you know it’s a safe, humane and effective approach to stop pulling.

Comfortable Design

Your dog’s comfort is important, which is why the Gentle Leader Headcollar is thoughtfully designed.

The padded nose loop is made of neoprene, which is soft on your dog’s nose. It allows them to breathe freely and pant on walks.

The neck straps are minimal to prevent excessive pressure and keep your dog cool. They’re made from nylon so they don’t absorb moisture or odors.

Your dog will barely notice wearing this headcollar! Adjust it properly so the nose loop fits comfortably without being too tight or loose.

Easy to Fit and Use

Getting the right fit is crucial for comfort and effectiveness when using a headcollar. But the Gentle Leader couldn’t be easier to size and adjust for your dog!

It features quick-snap straps that make putting it on and taking it off a breeze. No more fussing with buckles before heading out the door.

Follow these simple steps to size and fit the Gentle Leader on your dog:

Choose the right size based on your dog’s neck circumference. Sizing is labeled directly on the product.
Fasten the neck strap so it’s snug around the neck behind the ears. Make sure you can fit two fingers underneath.
Adjust the nose loop so it’s secure but allows your dog to open their mouth. You should be able to fit one finger between the loop and nose.
Clip your leash onto both the nose loop and neck strap for optimum control and steering.
Voilà! Properly fitting the Gentle Leader takes just a few minutes. Once adjusted, your dog can slip it on and off easily each time you head out for a walk.

Training Tool for Long-Term Change

The Gentle Leader Headcollar instantly stops your dog from pulling by controlling head direction. But it also serves as an invaluable training tool to reduce and ultimately eliminate pulling.

With continued use along with positive reinforcement training, your dog will learn that not pulling is rewarded with treats and praise.

The Gentle Leader allows you to regain control of walks so you can implement training techniques. As your dog learns to walk nicely on a loose leash, they’ll rely less on the headcollar for cues until it’s no longer needed.

So this product can help change your dog’s pulling habit for good with time and training. It provides immediate pulling relief while teaching long-term, loose leash walking manners.

Not for Short-Snouted Breeds

While the Gentle Leader Headcollar is suitable for most dogs, it should not be used on short-snouted breeds like pugs, bulldogs, boxers, etc.

The nose loop design may irritate or obstruct breathing on dogs with short muzzles or flat faces. Brachycephalic breeds often have more sensitive respiratory systems as it is.

We don’t recommend using this product on any short-snouted dog to avoid discomfort or breathing issues. Stick to harnesses designed specifically for flat-faced breeds instead.
