Tired of your dog taking YOU for a walk? The Gentle Leader head collar offers a fast, gentle and effective way to control unwanted behavior – without harsh methods or devices. Because it’s scientifically designed to work with your dog’s natural instincts, behavior changes in minutes, not weeks!

What the Gentle Leader Does for You and Your Dog

Teaches Sit - The Gentle Leader head collar quickly encourages controlled sitting – raise your dog’s nose skyward and he lowers his hindquarters without pushing or shoving.

Stops Pulling and Lunging - No more tug-of-wars, jerking or being dragged down the street. Even children and the elderly can walk large or difficult dogs.

Prevents Jumping - Easily stop jumping and other unwanted behavior as the Gentle Leader head collar helps you control your dog in a stand, sit or down position.

Controls Barking - Stop unwanted barking with a simple pull of the lead to close your dog’s mouth. No need to shout or scold.

Won’t Choke - Gentle Leader gives you control with humane restraint. Pressure is applied at the back of the neck instead of the front of the throat.

 

Not a Muzzle - When fitted properly, your dog may open his mouth to eat, drink, pant, fetch and bark – except when you pull on the leash to close his mouth.

Aggression Problems - Under the supervision of a professional trainer, veterinarian or behavior consultant, and when used appropriately, Gentle Leader can be very effective for aggression problems.

How and Why the Gentle Leader Works - First of all, the Gentle Leader head collar is NOT a muzzle. When fitted properly, your dog is free to open his mouth to eat, drink, pant, fetch, bark — and even bite — except when you close his mouth by pulling on the leash. The Gentle Leader head collar features two soft nylon straps. The collar portion fits high at the top of the neck, and the nose loop fits loosely and comfortably across the base of the muzzle. Each strap has a distinct and important effect.

The Nose Loop - Dogs are naturally “pack” animals with a highly structured social order. One of the ways the pack leader will demonstrate his position is to gently but firmly grasp a subordinate’s muzzle in his mouth. This is a non-aggressive but very clear signal regarding who’s the boss! The Gentle Leader’s nose loop encircles your dog’s muzzle in this same manner, letting him know in his own language that you are his leader. Dogs feel more secure when they know who the leader is.

The Neck Strap - Have you noticed how puppies seem to melt in relaxation when their mother picks them up at the back of the neck? Gentle Leader applies pressure to the back of the neck rather than the front of the throat, working with your dog’s natural relaxation instinct with an amazing calming effect. Also, dogs tend to pull against pressure so the gentle pressure at the back of the neck causes the dog to pull backward, not forward. This means an end to leash pulling forever!
