Instructions

Fitting Your Dog

Choosing the correct size of the Gentle Leader Headcollar for your dog is simple. All you need to know is the approximate weight of your dog. The only exception is that certain breeds with specifically large or small heads may use a size other than what is listed for body weight. Please note - all sizes are adjustable to fit a variety of breeds in the specified weight range.

For Puppies - Puppies of medium and large breeds can start at 8 to 10 weeks with a medium which they can wear until they reach 30 kgs. Puppies of large breeds that are already over 20 kgs should start with a large.

For Short Snout Dogs - Available in Medium and Large to fit Bulldog, Boxer etc.

  1. The Neck Loop should be snug (like a belt or a shoe) so one finger can barely fit between the strap and neck and will not rotate. It must fit as high on the neck as possible, directly behind the ears and above thew Adam's apple in front. The snugger the Neck Loop, the looser the Nose Loop can be.
  2. The Nose Loop should be in front of your dog's eyes and behind the corners of his mouth. It should be loose enough to move freely toward the fleshy part of the nose but not so loose that it can be pulled off the muzzle.
  3. Be certain to check the fit every day, especially on growing pups: Is the Neck Strap close-fitting and snug high behind the ears? Is the Nose Loop comfortable and reaching to the fleshy part of the nose, but not so loose that it can be pulled.
  4. After you dog has reached his full growth, you can remove any excess length of the Neck Strap. With the headcollar off your dog, cut the strap with scissors and use a flame to seal the cut edge and prevent fraying.
