Say Goodbye to Leash Pulling: Introducing the Simple Leader Head Collar

Are you tired of your dog tugging on the leash during walks? Look no further! The Simple Leader Head Collar is here to revolutionize your walking experience. With its padded or unpadded options, this head collar offers both comfort and effectiveness.

What is a Head Collar?

Similar to the ones worn by horses, a head collar for dogs serves the same purpose: to make walking easier and eliminate leash pulling. Made from durable materials like nylon or polypropylene webbing, these head collars are designed to reduce the pulling power of strong dogs. By providing fingertip control, they can instantly calm your furry friend, making your walks a breeze.

Measuring Guide and Fitting Instructions

Before purchasing a head collar, it’s crucial to measure your dog properly. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Grab a material tape measure.
  2. Ensure the tape is snug but not too tight.
  3. Place the tape behind the dog’s head, right behind the ears (not where a collar would sit).
  4. Cross the tape under the chin and up behind the ears.
  5. Take the measurement at the top.
  6. Measure the dog in a figure of eight.
  7. Choose the appropriate size for your dog.
  8. Watch our video guide on how to measure your dog for a head collar.

How to measure your dog for a simple leader head collar

To ensure optimal comfort and effectiveness, be sure to fit the head collar correctly:

  • The neck strap should rest behind the dog’s ears, not loosely down the neck.
  • The head collar should be snug but not uncomfortable for your dog to wear.
  • Position it on the dog’s nose without obstructing their sight or panting.

Training Tips for Head Collar Usage

If your dog isn’t initially keen on wearing a head collar, don’t despair! Training them to wear one is a process that can be tackled with patience and positive reinforcement. Check out our dedicated blog post on how to train your dog to wear a head collar.

What Not to Do

While a head collar can work wonders, it’s essential to avoid certain practices:

  • Using a head collar to correct a dog’s behavior.
  • ‘Checking’ a dog if they continue to pull while wearing a head collar.
  • Relying solely on the head collar for security if your dog is reactive or uncomfortable.
  • Using a head collar with a long training lead or any car seatbelt/car lead.

Safety Precautions

If your dog is reactive or still adjusting to the head collar, it’s crucial to take additional precautions for their safety:

  • Double lead your dog by attaching a lead to both the head collar and a securely fitted collar or use a double-ended lead.
  • If your dog’s recall is not 100%, assess the risks and consider not using the head collar or implementing the safety precautions mentioned above. We recommend using a safety link for added security.

Disclaimer: To ensure safe use, it’s essential to follow fitting and usage recommendations, regularly inspect your products, and only use them in a safe condition. When in doubt, do not use the head collar.

“Excellent. Easy to fit and use, and can walk the dog on either side. My dog’s measurement was between size 2 and 3, so I reached out to Sarah via the comments box on the order form. I received a prompt reply and even ordered a second head collar for the car!” – Lynn, December 2017
