Our Gentle Leader Headcollar is the reason more than 2.5 million dog owners have found the secret to stress-free walks. First of all, the Gentle Leader Headcollar is NOT a muzzle. When fitted properly, your dog is free to open his mouth to eat, drink, pant, fetch, bark and even bite - except when you close his mouth by pulling on the leash. Immediately controls pulling, lunging and jumping...painless, humane, never chokes. The Gentle Leader Headcollar features two soft nylon straps - the collar portion fits high at the top of the neck, and the nose loop fits loosely and comfortably across the base of the muzzle. Each strap has a distinct and important effect. The Gentle Leader`s nose loop encircles your dog`s muzzle in this same manner, letting him know in his own language that you are his leader. Gentle Leader applies pressure to the back of the neck rather than the front of the throat, working with your dog`s natural relaxation instinct, creating a calm effect. Also, dogs tend to pull against pressure so the gentle pressure at the back of the neck causes the dog to pull backward, not forward. This means an end to leash pulling forever! The Gentle Leader Headcollar quickly encourages controlled sitting - raise your dog`s nose skyward and he lowers his hindquarters - no pushing or shoving. The Gentle Leader won`t choke your dog.
