    I like & use a gentle leader with a lot of dogs. It is easy & most dogs "go with the flow" and accept it. Some dogs will thrash & no matter what you do won't accept it, that is usually not the case though. If your dog won't accept a gentle leader you can use a gentle leader EASY WALK harness, where the leash clips to the chest area and allows for more control a traditional harness will promote pulling. Read up on NILF .... I love this concept.
