In this video, Jean Donaldson (author and dog trainer) demonstrates how to train your dog to look forward to having his Gentle Leader put on. We sell Gentle Leaders at Olathe Animal Hospital, and we frequently recommend them. They are helpful for a variety of nuisance behaviors, such as pulling on the leash, jumping up, barking, and even more serious problems such as growling and aggression. If you are considering using a Gentle Leader for your dog, it’s a good idea to have someone help you with fitting it on your dog, and our staff can help you with that.
