Designed so that owners can communicate with their pet in a way they instinctively understand, the Gentle Leader painlessly and effectively removes the dog’s natural tendency to pull by placing gentle pressure on calming points and eliminating uncomfortable pressure on the throat. In addition to reducing a dog’s 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.
Is a Gentle Leader the best choice? Here are just of few of the reasons…
Stops leash pulling…an extremely common problem that spans all breeds, ages, and activity levels and leaves both owners and dogs frustrated.
Controls unwanted behaviors …general aggression and dog-on-dog aggressive behavior, anxiety issues, and a wide range of compulsive disorders.
Fully adjustable…both neck strap and nose loop can be adjusted independently to create a custom fit.
Immediate results…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.
More effective…the Gentle Leader allows owners to communicate with their pet in a way that dogs instinctively understand. The nose loop encircles the dog’s 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.
Unmatched versatility…the Gentle Leader can be used effectively to control unwanted behaviors ranging from leash pulling and lunging to barking, jumping, chasing, digging and begging; doesn’t need safety straps or double leashing; and can quickly convert to a regular collar.
