Lead me on…

Happy Thorsday!  Our good friend Sue is having success with a Gentle Leader with her pups.  She caught my attention when she shared that it helps both pulling and screeching.  Given that Gretchen Greer does both when she encounters another dog – other than Sissy, of course – I am going to give it a try.  Sissy will require Vision Vet’s blessing first, as we have to be certain any “headwear” won’t increase eye pressure.

Maybe that sounds silly, but throat pressure does just that – it increases inner eye pressure.

Have you used a Gentle Leader on a wee dog?  This image shows a Jack Russell wearing one, but I prefer REAL references.

    We have Gentle Leaders too and they work great but we don’t like them. When walkies are over, we can’t wait to throw our faces on the ground and try to rub them off. Mom is just not quick enough to hit that release clip!
    We hope it works for you, Sissy!

    Love ya lots♥

    Both girls now have their head halters and they work like a dream. The girls don’t pull even when a cat appears in the yard and no screeching, just a little groan. Syd has adapted well to hers, doesn’t object to having it put on and walks around nicely. Mac sees it and tries to hide. She’s OK once it’s on but when we remove it she acts like she’s been punished, head down and ears hanging low. I told Rob to be more generous with treats while she gets used to it.
