Gentle Leader Dog Leash Review

The gentle leader dog leash has become well known in the world of dog training. As we will discuss below, the concept is incredibly simple but makes perfect sense.

It has been proven to be more effective than choke collars and is used to control the same type of behavior, including jumping and pulling on the leash.

How Does a Gentle Leader Dog Leash Work?

Whether you have a small bouncy dog or a big strong puller of a dog, the Gentle Leader is a great option to help control their behavior while walking.

So, you're probably asking how this miracle harness/collar succeeds where others fail...

According to the manufactures of the Gentle Leader, this is exactly how the harness works:

"The Gentle Leader works with your dog's natural instincts. Dogs pull on standard collars and harnesses because of their instinct to move into pressure. The Gentle Leader's unique design works in two ways:

  1. The Nose Loop encircles your dog's muzzle. Like a halter on a horse, it allows you to guide the nose and head, and the body naturally follows.
  2. The Neck Strap fits high on the back of the neck. The unique design applies pressure to the back of the neck rather than the front of the throat reducing your dog's drive to pull forward and eliminates any choking. This means an end to leash-pulling forever!"

As you can see, when fitted properly the Gentle Leader is not a muzzle and will not choke your dog. Your dog can open his mouth to eat, drink, pant, fetch and bark - except when you pull on the leash to close his mouth.

It gives you control with humane restraint... pressure is applied at the back of the neck instead of the front of the throat.
