A stall holder at a market recommended Gentle Leader when she saw me being dragged around by my lovely but very strong dog. I ordered online and received a swift delivery. While a bit fiddly to work out at first it’s now easy to put on over my dog’s head. She immediately stops pulling. My back no longer hurts after dog walking. It’s light, and ingeniously designed to give control to the human while gentle on the dog. The head collar did not come with instructions on how to use but a search found an instructive video.
My 18 month sheprador doesn't really like it, however, I don't really like being pulled down the street either .. The collar slows my mutt down to a gentler pace and walking has become a much more pleasurable experience. Consider purchasing if your dog pulls hard on the lead.
I work in animal care, collar gives more control and assists you on walks for anxious dogs.
It was exactly what i ordered, fast delivery, great customer service, thankyou very much
Miss OCD hyperactive is only 20kg, but she's a Border Collie cross and as such, her world has to be at 100mph or it's a wasted day...in her mind.
Going on 9yrs next May, she's my latest ( foster fail ) adoption. So she's very set in her ways, very much a routine girl, but we're working on it and she's settling. Just make sure you keep to the schedule, she's a clock watcher and she won't let you forget anything. LMAO...
Her pulling on the lead was getting very frustrating, I was continuously checking her with a front loaded harness, each check lasting all of 5 seconds max.
So I'm trying halties. I mean had collars work on horses, cattle, goats and sheep, right?
So the first few days she was fighting it, trying to get it off and I'm distracting her with her fav ball. Week 2 and she giving in and walking better. Week 3 and she's pulling the old "Oh I think I need to pee" so she can get more lead..every dog knows this one. She's lighter in the hand but is still insistent on pulling. I'll give it another month and if she still fighting it, I might switch her over to a Black Dog Haltermate as it works from the back of the head rather than directly off the snout. Each dog is different.
This is just Shady's experience, I've has many foster dogs walk well in these Gentle Leader Headcollar's and seen many in my area also walking very well on the Gentle Leader Headcollar. Give it a go but remember that with any head collar requires a kind hand as halters are like power steering in cars, go easy.
