FAQ’s

How does the Gentle Leader® work?

The nose loop goes around the dog’s nose & jaw and acts in the same way as a pack-leader’s mouth – this is a clear signal to the dog that you are the leader.

The neck strap puts pressure on the back of the neck which causes an instinctive relaxation response when the dog tries to pull forwards. The dog will instinctively lean back against the pressure, putting an end to pulling on the lead forever.

Traditional collars put pressure on the front of the throat, causing dogs to keep pulling even while choking.

Gentle Leader® does not choke your dog. It has been scientifically designed to direct the dog’s entire body by controlling its head & nose – and wherever it’s nose goes its body will follow.
