Has anybody used a gentle leader on their staffy? im thinking of getting one for chloe, so that i have more control over her when shes reacting to other dogs. I currently use a harness but only because she pulls and i dont want a collar putting pressure on her neck, but in regards to keeping her in check its useless lol! i have tried a couple of other types of head collar but her head is an odd shape...i.e she has a short nose and a fat head lol...so the nose band slips off and the head clip doesnt fit her head right...but the gentle leader is more adjustable. what do ppl think?

We used a Canny collar for Rocky which is a similar thing and it did work well to stop him pulling on the lead.

Cannot say about the gentle leader as I havn't used one.

The shape certainly fits on my staff but the others are far to flimsy for my liking

I use the Gentle Leader and it is AMAZING! My boy is much bigger and stronger than your average staff and his pulling was completely out of control. I tried the Gentle Leader and from the first time I put it on him, the pulling stopped instantly. It took him a couple days to get used to it, but that is to be expected. Seriously, my four year old twins can walk him when he is wearing his Gentle Leader Smile

I don't have experience with the Gentle Leader, it sounds like it works really well.

When you were using a harness, was it with the ring in front or on the back? My understanding is they still pull terribly with the ring on the back.

yeah the ring is at the back, but i only really go it so a) i could walk her without hurting her neck, and B) so i felt more secure with her knowing she couldnt get out of it like she could with a collar. I do use a gentle leader with my boxer cross and works well with her, but its a medium so its too big for chloe.

If uou want to fet more out pf the harness, You could try the harness withe the ring in front, and clip the leash to collar and harness to keep the harness from sliding down...
