I know that there was a thread about this before, but I am having trouble locating it. Faeden's trainer decided to introduce these last night. I was thrilled with how well it worked, but one of the other women said it was cruel. What are everyone's thoughts on these?
Hi there! I LOVE my gentle leader. I have told people that it is just like a horse halter when they have expressed concern. It calm's 'em right down : ) And it is sooo east to take my big puppy and 2 little kids with a stroller on a walk thanks to that gentle leader. I rarely need to correct him, since pulling on the lead just turns him back to me. It's great! Hope you enjoyed my 2 cents~ Suz
telling them its like a humane horse halter works for me as well when I'm telling someone about it. Usually people will say somethings cruel when they don't understand the topic.My dad had a friend who beleived it was cruel to teach his Lab anything.So instead the Lab taught him stuff, like how to clean up food he took out of the refrigerator when he was mentally starved :)
When I look up into the sky, I think to myself, Wheres the ceiling?
Only caveat is that some of our friends tried using it on their boxer mix, and it irritated his skin and the hair on his muzzle came off. Their dog has very sensitive skin I don't think it's a common issue.
