Command immediate and effective control of your dog! Innovative dog leader quickly and safely halts pulling, jumping, lunging, and barking - all without choking your pooch. Designed with two soft nylon straps that easily adjust for a custom fit. Plastic Quick-Clip speeds and eases use. Features a collar portion that fits high at the top of the neck and a noose loop that fits loosely and comfortably across the base of the muzzle. When your dog pulls, pressure is applied to the back of the neck and bridge of the snout, the two areas mother and alpha dogs use to control undesirable behavior in the wild. However, unlike muzzles that restrict your dog's favorite activities, these headcollars allow your dog to eat, drink, and pant - in comfort. Safe, humane design is a favorite of veterinarians and dog trainers. Includes training instructions and a FREE 40-minute training DVD.
Nylon headcollar includes plastic quick-clip closures and
O-ring for leash attachment (leash not included). Choose from Royal Blue or Red. Available in petite, small, medium, or large.

Stops Pulling & Lunging - No more tugs-of-war, jerking or being dragged down the street. Even children and the elderly can walk large or difficult dogs.
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.
Prevents Jumping - Easily stops jumping and other unwanted behavior as the Gentle Leader Headcollar helps you control your dog in a "stand," "sit," or "down" position.
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.
Controls Barking - Stop unwanted barking with a simple pull of the lead to close your dog's mouth - no need to shout or scold.
Helps Manage Other Behavior Problems - Under the supervision of a trained professional, the Gentle Leader can be an effective tool in an individual behavior modification program for problems such as fear, anxiety, and aggression. Many professionals and owners have reported the calming effect it had on their dogs.
How to fit:
Gentle Leader fits differently than other collars or halters you may have used. Without a proper fit, you may experience problems, such as excessive pawing, rubbing, and resistance, or chafing of the nose. The Nose Loop needs to be as loose and comfortable as possible, moving freely from in front of the eyes to the beginning of the fleshy part of the nose, but NOT so loose that it comes off. The proper fit of the Nose Loop is totally dependent on the proper fit of the Neck Strap, which must be high at the very top of the neck (touching the skull) and very snug (only one finger barely squeezes underneath), so that it cannot rotate. (If the Neck Strap rotates, so will the Nose Loop, which may cause chafing of the skin.) When properly fitted and viewed from the side, Gentle Leader will resemble the letter "V" and not an "L".
