The Vets at this Canton animal hospital recommend:
The Gentle Leader to guide your pet on walks.
A harness “harnesses” a dog’s power, allowing them to throw its weight into the leash and drag the owner along.
Standard collars and choke chains put too much force on the throat and cause trauma to both the throat and neck.
Our Canton vets recommend The Gentle Leader because it uses gentle steady pressure on the nose to lower the head and provide reasonable control. It also gives a gradual indication that the pet needs to slow down rather than the sudden jolt they get with collars and harnesses.
These can be purchased at most pet stores or online and come with instructions to explain their use.
