The Gentle Leader headcollar has been scientifically designed to work with the dog's natural instincts to control unwanted behaviour.
Gentle Leader was designed by a foremost veterinary surgeon and a past President of the National Association of Dog Trainers in the USA. The Gentle Leader enables owners to prevent their dog or puppy from pulling on the lead and makes training in basic obedience (sit, stay, down, come etc) really quick and easy because of its three-fold natural effect on the way dogs think, relax and behave.
Dogs of all sizes pull on standard collars and harnesses due to a natural instinct to pull against pressure. The Gentle Leader’s unique Triple Action, Patented Design counters that instinct in 3 ways:-
1. Gentle pressure is transferred to the back of the neck, naturally stimulating a relaxation response (the same as when a mother carries a puppy by the scruff of it’s neck).
2. Gentle pressure around the muzzle of the nose loop naturally gives a relaxation response
3. It works like a halter on a horse – where the nose goes the body will follow
The Gentle Leader can also be simply & easily converted into a regular collar - offering greater flexibility.
