Gentle Leaders

Many volunteers are using Gentle Leaders to walk the dogs in residence. These face harnesses (much like a horse bridle) help control where the dogs are looking and allow people to walk dogs that normally pull with much ease. These headcollars are not muzzles--the dogs still have the ability to fully open their mouths--and it takes a couple walks before the dogs are fully comfortable with them. We do recommend their use and will happily show all potential adopters how to use and put them on. They make wonderful training tools. To learn more, visit:
