Beaphar Canac Gentle LeaderSKU: V9330
Traditional collars put pressure on the front of the throat, causing dogs to keep pulling even while choking but the Gentle Leader stops your dog pulling on the lead and does not choke your dog. The nose loop goes around the dog's nose and jaw and acts in the same way as a pack-leaders mouth - this is a clear signal to the dog that you are the leader. It has been scientifically designed to direct the dog's entire body by controlling the head and nose and wherever the nose goes, the body will follow.
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. Through its calming effect the Gentle Leader can help shy, nervous or fearful dogs to relax and gain greater confidence. It will also calm boisterous dogs of all sizes and enable dogs to be trained to be sociable and obedient, calmly, quickly and effectively.
Even whilst wearing a Gentle Leader, your dog can still eat, drink, bark, pant, etc. When happy with the level of control the Gentle Leader can easily and simply be converted into an ordinary collar by using the neck strap as you would an ordinary collar and using the nose loop as an extension of the lead.
