I have two rescue dogs, one I think was hit while on a leash where he couldn’t get away and panicks when other people or dogs approach. We have taken multiple training classes,different collars, and harnesses. However pulling in the leash has always been a struggle especially with two of them! #GentleLeaderHeadCollar is a lifesaver! Within two days of using it we had the best walk ever and I have seen a significant decrease in anxiety levels!
Leading your dog is so much more natural. I'd really recommend you train your dog to go without a leash, but I understand there are tons of pet owners in the cities who need leashes due to laws. If you fit that category, get this type. It is the best kind.
It is now a pleasure to "walk" around the neighborhood instead of being dragged. The Gentle Leader only took a short time for my dogs to get used to and allows me to manage both dogs without my elbow paying a huge price... I've recommended it to all my dog friends!
I used this to walk my friend's VERY strong pitbull and it was like walking a completely different dog... no pulling, easy to have him heeling. It seemed miraculous to me, so I bought one for my pit. He's better-trained, but still hard to manage if he sees a squirrel or cat. My dog wants nothing to do with this, and it is really hard to get it on him. He can get it off before I get it properly adjusted
All the gold stars!
I have only had this 2 days but I already love it. I have a 6 month old puppy who is pretty excited about life. He behaves well most of the time and will usually listen...until he is on a leash. Then he tries to drag me along behind him and acts as if he is suddenly deaf to any commands. I had tried training by stopping every time he pulled and wasn't getting anywhere. He used this once and seemed to instantly understand and do better with the leash. Here he is on the way home from the park. Obviously he seems pretty happy and not bothered. He did get a bone while I fitted him, and wore it awhile yesterday while playing/eating prior to me taking him on the leash that evening.
