About the Perfect Pace Products

The Perfect Pace is a head halter/collar/harness designed to stop your dog from pulling and lunging on the leash. The comfortable figure-eight design fits around your dog’s upper neck and snout, crisscrossing under the chin. The lead comes off the top of the neck, eliminating pressure on the throat and it does not pull the dog’s face to the side or irritate the eyes. The lightweight construction is strong yet comfortable for your dog and in your hands. The Perfect Pace halter/leash is available in three different materials: smooth nylon, woven, and leather. Please see the Material Options tab for more information on the smooth nylon material. If you are looking for the original woven material Perfect Pace, click here or if you are looking for the leather Perfect Pace, please click here.

How the Perfect Pace Works: When your dog pulls pressure is applied gently behind the head and under the jaw: these pressure points are calming for your dog, which encourages focus. The upward pressure raises your dog’s head and reminds them to pay attention to you with less resistance.

Safer and Healthier for Your Dog: Other head collars/halters prompt people to “steer” their dog around by the face. The Perfect Pace motivates your dog to pay attention to you so that they can learn good behavior and leash manners. Mentioned in the highly respected Whole Dog Journal! 

Simple & Humane: For many dogs, the Perfect Pace is more natural and effective than other training tools and is a great training solution for dogs that are stronger than their handlers (or that don’t respond well to other training tools). Many dogs prefer this style of halter because the leash does not dangle under their chin or force them to turn their head and the lightweight, minimal design is less annoying than other halters. Professional dog trainers love this training tool because it is not aversive!

Training Tip! For best results, we recommend using positive reinforcement training to desensitize your dog to the sensation of the halter on his snout before using this product. The novelty of “stuff on my face” can be distracting for some dogs, but with positive reinforcement, your dog can quickly learn to accept it! We highly recommend desensitization training to help acclimate your dog to the loop on his snout.

Not a Muzzle: Dogs can pant, eat treats, drink, and pick up toys while wearing this halter.

It Works Differently: Dogs that have struggled with other collars, halters, or harnesses often accept the Perfect Pace willingly and respond with calm focus and attention. If other training tools have not been right for your dog, try this one and we’ll stand behind it with our Satisfaction Guarantee. Should your dog find this training tool aversive or you are otherwise dissatisfied, return it for your money back. See our guarantee page for details.

If you are looking for the leather Perfect Pace, click here.

Smooth Nylon Material

The silky-smooth tubular material has no hard edges to irritate your dog and is a bit wider than the original woven material to offer increased comfort and pressure distribution. The smooth material is now more durable to resist fraying and snags, and is great for long haired dogs as it doesn’t tangle the fur. It is available in several colors including black, blue, red, and white.

Comes with an improved cord-lock adjustment for a better fit–simply press the spring-loaded button to adjust! 

The smooth nylon Perfect Pace package includes rubber chin rings: The optional rubber chin ring can be added to keep the halter in the figure-eight shape and may stop the halter from sliding to the side. Directions are included.

    THIS PERFECT PACE HARNESS AND LEASH WAS AMAZING !!!! LITERALLY GAVE ME A MIRACLE. i have two ~70 lb husky mixes who were near impossible to walk, especially at the same time, because they pulled so hard. i tried several things: prong collar, front clip harness, and also professional walking training. nothing would get them to stop pulling and lunging at squirrels they saw on the walk. the pulling was only amplified when i walked them together. however, i got the perfect pace leash/harness today for both of them. putting it on was extremely easy when following the video tutorial. they pawed at their snouts for the first 5-10 minutes trying to get it off, but after continuous walking + treat reinforcement they stopped pawing and went with the flow. the pulling was reduced by 90% in a matter of minutes. this leash achieved what months of walking training couldn’t fix. i could walk them at the same time and hold their leashes with one hand. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!! COULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT ENOUGH

    This head halter has COMPLETELY changed my dogs behavior on leash! I have an 80+ lb pibble mix, and if another large dog barks at us, even from behind a fence, Shiloh would react with barking and lunging. I bought a Gentle Leader hoping it would help, but with the way it attaches at the front of the neck it was always awkward and didn’t stop her from pulling at all. The Perfect Pace was the solution I was hoping for! Because it attaches to the leash at the back of the head like a regular collar would it feels much more natural to walk, and somehow it just seems to keep her calm and happy. I never thought I would be able to loose leash walk my dog, but this product has literally made a world of difference and changed taking Shiloh for walks from something that I dreaded to something we both enjoy! I cannot thank you enough!

    This was my most recent purchase from bold lead. I prefer the original woven material. It stays put better on my dogs. Having said that, this is still a good purchase. It is smooth and durable. Perfect pace is the way to go in dog training!!! Just be patient and bond with your pup. This company is wonderful. Thank you for your dedication making a small company work and grow.
