Product Description

The Gentle Leader Headcollar is an easy-to-fit training tool for teaching your dog better leash manners. The Gentle Leader Headcollar stops pulling, lunging, jumping, and other unwanted behaviors with immediate, gentle control. When your dog pulls, the nose loop gently moves his head and body back towards you, which effectively refocuses his attention to you and off the squirrel, dog, stranger, or other distraction. The headcollar places pressure on the back of the neck instead of the front of the delicate throat, preventing choking and coughing. Most dogs quickly learn to stop pulling and start paying attention to you during walks. Train your dog to heel using the headcollar, and once your dog has learned to let you lead walks, you might only need to use the Gentle Leader Headcollar as a backup tool at the vet or dog park.
