Gentle leader, head halters for dogs

So you tried the Easy-Walk harness and it didn’t measure up to the challenge? That happens. Some dogs pull harder than others. Then it’s time to consider a head halter. This is not a muzzle! It is a simple cloth band that fits around a dog’s nose and attaches to a leash below the chin. The operating principle is that when you pull a dog’s nose downward his body stops thrusting forward. So simple.

Now, at first your dog will probably not cotton to this new nose-wear. That’s normal. I always say, it’s like you wearing a ring on your finger if you’ve never worn one before. At first, it’s all you can think about. But in time, it bothers you more when you’re not wearing it.

The thing to do is to introduce your dog to the halter. Let her sniff it. Then next time, maybe put it on her nose without attaching a leash. And finally, attach the leash.

Notice in the pic below, it’s only the dachshund-mix who needs one. You never know.

I have lots of head halters made by Gentle Leader in sizes S, M and L. I even have an XL.

Please call or email me for more information.
