The Gentle Leader Deluxe Headcollar has the same design to help prevent pulling and lunging plus improved comfort and a variety of fun patterns. In addition to controlling pulling, lunging, and jumping, the Deluxe Headcollar sports an evolved nose loop adorned with a fashionable ribbon accent and cushy felt pad. Unlike traditional collars, the Gentle Leader places pressure on the back of the neck instead of the front of the delicate throat, preventing choking and coughing. The nose loop allows you to direct your dog’s head in the direction you want to go. Most dogs quickly learn to stop pulling and start paying attention to you during walks. Comes with a 6-foot matching leash.
The Gentle Leader is a useful training tool for teaching your dog better leash manners. When your dog pulls, the Gentle Leader gently moves his head and body back towards you. This effectively refocuses his attention to you and off the distraction. You can easily train your dog to heel using the Gentle Leader plus your preferred training method. Once he’s learned to let you lead walks, you may only need to use the Gentle Leader as a backup during situations when you’ll need that extra control, such as at the vet or dog park.
