My 2 lab/shepherd mixes have a HUGE problem with leash pulling...to the point that my husband was having to walk them because they'd pull me down the street. And if they saw a squirrel, forget about me holding on to them! The gentle leader completely fixed this problem for us. I can now walk both dogs with no problems, even if there are squirrels around!
It did take awhile for all of us to learn how to use them though. Fitting it to my dogs' heads so that they couldn't get out of it, without it being too tight, was very difficult. It took quite a few tries and unsnapping the locking mechanism is a job for someone with stronger hands. Once we got the gentle leader fitted, it took about a week for our dogs to stop rubbing their heads on the ground or getting their paws caught in it while trying to get it off on walks. Once our dogs got used to using the gentle leader, they became very easy to use!
