The Gentle Leader Collar.


The Gentle Leader collar, is similar in shape to halters on ponies. The gentle leader collar cannot be left on as it sits loose enough for a dog to shake or pull it of with it’s paw. In fact a determined dog can whip the Gentle Leader off while being lead, unless the handler is very alert.


Some very strong minded, or strong willed dogs do take a few trips out to accept the gentle leader collar, as they object to the control that it gives you. They will repeat the same objections if they are not regularly exercised with the Gentle Leader on.


The Gentle Leader is a very useful collar if your dog is very determined to pull, on the lead, and you have not got the time or inclination to train him to walk gently. But do not be surprised if some people give you a wide birth as a lot of people think it is a devise to stop your dog biting. It is not what the Gentle Leader was designed for but it can, to some extent, serve that purpose as well.


 The Gentle Leader collar does need to fit properly, it is not expensive, and it will stop your dog from pulling after a short training period, but it does not  “train” your dog. The gentle leader collar is a restraining device not a training tool.


The Gentle Leader is a great "quick fix" tool.

Dear Friend,

If you want a well-behaved, healthier, happier dog!  then you need to read this!

Do you love spoiling your pooch, respond to his every whimper and cry, and spend hundreds of dollars on him? But are you frustrated at your dog being generally disobedient?

That's where I come in. My name is Kevin Lynch and I learned long ago how to train dogs. Now I am going to teach you what I know.

When I was a kid, my best friend, Brad, lived next door to me. Throughout Brad's house there were pictures of his dad with all kinds of animals, mountain lions, armadillos, all kinds of crazy animals but mostly dogs... dogs of every imangnable size and breed. I wondered about the pictures but it was only after I started to ask questions I found out that Brad's dad had a really cool job.

He was an animal trainer for Disney and had personally trained hundreds of dogs!

There for it was no surprise to me that his dogs where the most well behaved dogs
