Designed so that owners can communicate with their pet in a way they instinctively understand, the Gentle Leader painlessly and effectively removes the dogÕs natural tendency to pull by placing gentle pressure on calming points and eliminating uncomfortable pressure on the throat. In addition to reducing a dogÕs 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.Features:
Why is a Gentle Leader the best choice? Here are just of few of the reasons whyÉ
Stops leash pullingÉan extremely common problem that spans all breeds, ages, and activity levels and leaves both owners and dogs frustrated.
Controls unwanted behaviors Égeneral aggression and dog-on-dog aggressive behavior, anxiety issues, and a wide range of compulsive disorders.
Fully adjustableÉboth neck strap and nose loop can be adjusted independently to create a custom fit.
Immediate resultsÉmost dogs acclimate within minutes and respond very quickly.
How does a Gentle Leader compare to other halter-like products?
Simply stated itÕs recommended most often by leading vets and trainers.
More effectiveÉthe Gentle Leader allows owners to communicate with their pet in a way that dogs instinctively understand. The nose loop encircles the dogÕs 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 fitÉthe 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 haltersÉas long as 16 hoursÉand cannot paw it off.
Unmatched versatilityÉthe Gentle Leader can be used effectively to control unwanted behaviors ranging from leash pulling and lunging to barking, jumping, chasing, digging and begging; doesnÕt need safety straps or double-leashing; and can quickly convert to a regular collar.
Extremely user-friendlyÉthe Gentle Leader kit comes with easy-to-follow fitting instructions, simplified training materials and a more elaborate, multi-media training DVD.
