Amazing- Wonder product!,
This review is from: Beaphar Gentle Leader Medium Black (Misc.)
This lead is amazing- we had tried almost everything with our 4 year old Staffie-cross, and he still pulled on the lead. Choke chains and harnesses did nothing to calm him down and i did not want to resort to putting him on a muzzle, as he is soft and friendly, and i think it gives the wrong impression. Then we discovered this lead- The Gentle Leader is not a muzzle, yet has calmed our dog down so that walks are a pleasure! As the instructions suggested, we tried the lead for a few minutes at a time, used treats and lots of praise, before venturng out. He tried to pull it off a few times, but we built up over 3 or 4 days for 5-10 minutes at home. After a trip to the park we allowed him to run around as usual then put the lead on and let him walk for a few minutes, before walking home with the new lead on. And, it has been like a dream! He now walks perfectly, and for the first time we are not being dragged down the road. The dog is calm, and actually gets excited when he sees the lead- just a few days of training for a few minutes and we can now forget about the choke chains and harness! Brilliant. Excellent value for money and a complete wonder product! Don't hesitate in purchasing this for your dog! We thought he was too old to learn to walk properly- not true.
