About the Perfect Pace Products

The Perfect Pace is a halter/head collar 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. It does not pull the dog’s face to the side or irritate the eyes. Lightweight construction is strong yet comfortable for your dog and your hands.



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, encouraging focus. The upward pressure raises your dog’s head and reminds him 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, and learn good behavior & leash manners.

Simple & Humane: The Perfect Pace is more natural and effective than other training tools, and a great training solution for dogs that are stronger than their handlers, or that don’t respond well to other training tools.

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.

User-Friendly Package: your Perfect Pace will come with great instructions and links to helpful videos on PerfectPaceDog.com.

A shorter, lightweight leash is recommended. 

*NOT for dogs under 20 lbs.
Recommended for medium and larger breeds (over 20 lbs.) due to the way pressure is applied.

*Do NOT use on brachycephalic dogs with short/flat muzzles (such as pugs, bulldogs, and boxers),
on dogs prone to breathing problems, with soft or narrow tracheas or similar medical conditions
(brachycephalic breeds are more prone): consult your veterinarian if you have questions or concerns.

Please read and follow the instructions and reminders in the package before using this product.
Remember that no training device works on every dog. Any tool is only as good as the hands that use it.

    The Infinity Collar changed our walks immediately. It’s so light and requires very little strength to communicate to your dog. I’ve already written to all of my family members to let them know what they need to buy. Katrina has shown world class service and we will definitely be repeat customers. THANK YOU.

    Thanks so much. The head collar fits perfect, size medium.
    It works greattttt!!!!!!!!!!
    Much better than any head collar I have ever used. It does not bother his eyes and I don’t pull his head to one side.
    And I have more control.

    Very happy with this purchase! l have used 3 other types that attach at the front or back and they ride up into my dogs eyes and she hates them. This is simple but effective and she seems to have accepted it better. l also like the collar attachment for safety. The material is softer then what l was using before which l like too. lt has worked great and l plan to buy more in different colours! l not only use it for pulling but barking at other dogs while walking. lt is the only thing that seems to work to re-direct her attention. Great product!!

    First off I received my order in three days with a nice thank you hand written note. I have used it for our daily walks and for our dog obedience classes. It’s the first head collar that my blackmouth cur has excepted to even move on. All the others she has totally shut down! She will do all her commands. She walks with her head up after a few corrections; this had been a big problem as she wanted to track non stop. No pulling even for squirrels and rabbits:) I’m so thankful to have stumbled upon this web sight. Great lead. I’ve walked many a dog on the gentle leaders, but wasn’t for this special girl. As said, very easy to lead and comfortable for dog and owner. I want say my blackmouth is thrilled to put it on yet, but she responds and even wags her tail while wearing

    The Perfect Pace Dog Halter is the new brand name for the Infinity Lead. Many reviews will mention the original Infinity brand. It’s the same product!

    Great head collar! Our Vizsla/Lab mix is incridibly strong, pulled against the pinch collar, harnesses, flat collars…. Fought the GL to where she wouldn’t move, only tried to get it off. With the Infinity Collar she walks nicely and keeps pace, no fighting it or pulling – not even when we pass another dog on our walks! Would rate it 5 stars except the stop needs to be adjusted after a few corrections. But I will put up with that !

    We bought the leather harness and found it to be the best leader of this type. We did add leather conditioner to it, the lead was already soft, but in an effort to aid with breaking in, we did condition a bit more. The construction is high quality and it appears to be a lot more comfortable for my dog. She used to rub her face on the grass before, but no longer does that and overall responds much better than on the nylon lead of the same type. We are very pleased. We also purchased a leather collar and leather 8-way leash. We LOVE the way it feels and is very classy looking.

    Awesome head halter, by far the best design I’ve seen. I love the leather option, just don’t make the same silly mistake I did and leave it where a chew-happy puppy can get it! 😉

    My 5 month old shikoku puppy pulls so hard on the leash it makes training a chore and I worry he’ll hurt himself. The halter immediately stopped the pulling, and although he isn’t perfect on a leash yet, we’re getting there. I have a lot more patience to work with him without him trying to yank my arm off, and it’s helping to work through some reactive issues we’re having because it brings his attention back to me.

    A tip: keep an eye on the chin ring, since it can get lost if the nose loop comes loose.

    This is a very convenient head halter, since it’s so simple. As a trainer, I like to use this head halter with clients’ dogs just because the adjustment is so quick and easy. I will sometimes use it to take training dogs out to work them, instead of a slip lead, if that particular dog is a very strong puller. Definitely has saved my arm. I have used haltis, holts, and gentle leaders and the positioning of the perfect pace seems to make adjusting to a new tool much easier than the others.

    If I could give this no pull halter a 10 out of 5 stars I totally would! This halter has changed our daily walks and outings! It looks super clean and unique on my Great Dane. I’ve gotten quite a few compliments on it. The next Dane I get, I will definitely purchase another one of the no pull halters. It makes my Dane more controllable and focused on me. Love the leather! Thanks Bold Lead Designs!!

    Our hound dog has a prey drive like you wouldn’t believe, and a LOT of energy. This made for poor leash manners to say the least. I cannot describe to you the extent to which this dog can pull. The constant tension was causing me hip and back pain, and our dog’s harness was cutting into his skin.

    This collar was recommended to me by a trainer I trusted when it became obvious that the front-attaching harness we’d chosen wasn’t discouraging our dog from pulling on the leash, and was, in fact, causing more problems. The difference was immediate, and has a had a lasting effect. Also worth noting is that the Perfect Pace is much, much easier to get on your dog than other similar products.

    I did not splurge on the leather, as I wasn’t sure if this was going to be another product that ended up in a drawer somewhere. I absolutely could have; this is a lifesaver. I would (and have) recommended this to other dog owners.

    Have been using a Gentle Leader for years but NOT ANY MORE! Love love love this head collar! It is so nice and soft on my dog’s faces. As an obedience and service dog trainer, I absolutely love how I can easily adjust and slip just the nose part off during down time. It is also so easy to carry when not being used by balling it up in a pocket, or wrapping it around my wrist.

    I have a 6-year old Weimaraner, weighing over 100 lbs. He is generally very well-behaved and we go to class every week. However, he is all muscle and very strong, and he is overly friendly and unpredictable. He has jumped on people in the past, and he rushes at people, frightening them.
    I have tried at least 4 different kinds of halters. My teacher sold me one that works quite well – it is made by someone nearby – but it is bright aqua and wide. I was searching for one that was not so obvious because people often think it’s a muzzle and it increases their fear of my dog.
    I found the Perfect Pace halter online. I particularly liked the slip line feature, as this works very well on my dog (also recommended and used by Caesar Milan). I ordered the brown color, and not only does he like it better, but it is much more subtle. It just looks more like a training tool than a muzzle. We can go anywhere with this, and I’m confident that I can control him when he does something impulsive.
    P.s. since I live in Munich, where everyone takes his dog everywhere, I feel much more relaxed and in control with August beside me.

    The Perfect Pace is an excellent tool in our gear box. Where we live, dogs over 45 lbs are required to be muzzled in public, which is a huge shame. Assistance dogs however are allowed head halters. The perfect pace allows us to be in compliance with local laws, look stylish and be comfortable to boot!

    I keep this head collar with me at all times. If I run into a situation where I lose my dog to the environment ( a deer. , squirrel…) I put it on and he settles down right away. It’s small and light weight and works great

    When I adopted my crazy boxer x shorthair pointer boy, he was out of control on walks. I knew a head halter was probably the best option to help him learn to walk beside me, but the common ones rubbed his nose, and I didn’t like that they pulled his head to the side (risking a neck injury). I searched around and found the Perfect Pace (Infinity lead at the time), and loved that it kept the correction at the top of the neck, but still had the added head control.
    He now walks nicely on a slip lead, but I still use the head collar for fosters who have been taught to pull. I highly recommend it to anyone who sees us out using it. It has held up really well after months of use and has been hand washed a few times.

    My absolute favorite halter I have ever used! My dog and my training client’s dogs hate other halters and fight them tooth and nail, but the Perfect Pace is lightweight and barely noticable and it allows you to actually correct your dog without risk of injury.

  19. 5 out of 5


    As an Animal Control Officer I have a lot of contact with people and their dogs. I have recommended thie halter and also use it on my own dogs!! I particularly like that this product leads from behind the head rather than under the chin. I find that the head halters that lead from under the chin will pull the dogs neck out of alignment and could potentially cause injury. By leading from behind the head the neck stays in alignment. My dogs walk beautifully on this halter!!

    I am really pleased with the construction and design of the Perfect Pace no-pull dog halter.

    I teach basic through advanced obedience classes, and have also worked with clients who have dogs with reactivity issues.

    What I *love* about this product is that if you’re training towards flat collar loose leash walking or a flat collar heel, this is a fantastic tool to help your dog learn positioning early on.
    Added bonus? It prevents the dog from having time to practice pulling. What do you do when you need to take your dog for a long exercise walk, but they are in early training stages and may only heel or loose leash walk 30 ft on a flat collar before the behavior falls apart? What if they are more advanced in their training, but haven’t practiced in high distraction environments and you want to take a nice long walk through town?

    A tool like the Perfect Pace is the perfect bridge. When used as instructed, you will keep your dog from having a chance to practice pulling, which helps to avoid set backs in flat collar training.

    For owners who do not have a lot of extra time to train towards using a flat collar, the Perfect Pace (using the directions that come with the halter) will make your life MUCH easier and your walks enjoyable.

    I am particularly happy that dogs seem to adjust to the head harness more easily than to other designs. I appreciate how the “figure 8” crosses underneath in such a way that there appears to be little to no pressure on the larynx. Even my vet at the vet school was impressed with the design and asked for BLD information.

    The extra safety measure of the halter having an attachment to the collar is a MUST for me. I have to usually help a few people coming into a class on the first day, re-adjust different brands of halters their dogs are wearing. Some brands, the owners adjust much too tight, since their dog has escaped from that particular halter before.

    The way I see the Perfect Pace: it is a wonderful, safer tool so you can enjoy walks with your dog, as well as a great tool for those who are working towards more advanced training but do not want their dogs to have the reinforcement of pulling during a regular, non-training walk. It suits both populations of pet owners.

    I use the fabric version of the Perfect Pace and have not found the large rub marks over the top of the muzzle that can occur with some other brands of halters. I particularly appreciate that due to the “figure 8” and tightening from behind the ears, there is not the kind of pressure placed directly under the eyes which is a common issue a differently designed halter.

    Perfect Pace halter is at the top of my list for training aids 🙂

    I ordered the pace perfect for our Bernese Mountain Dog puppy in leather large. While she is just 4 months old, she is 40 pounds and can really pull me around with a regular collar. It has been wonderful for her. She no longer pulls me around and does not jump on people and other dogs. She still occasionally will try to paw it off when she gets excited and wants to go her own way, but she does not pull or jump. We have had her out and about to a number of functions and numerous people have commented on how calm and well behaved she is with the perfect pace.

    I love the perfect pace. I also wanted to submit a second review for the fabric halter; since in our family, we find it has its pros and cons separate from the leather version. I prefer the leather version, but find the fabric is also useful to own.
    Comfort – I ordered the leather version because I thought that it might be a little more comfortable on our puppy. (Kind of like how you are much more likely to get rope burn from a synthetic leash than a leather one.) I do believe after using both that the leather is more comfortable on our puppy from the way she acts and observing her closely.
    Uses other than walking -Our puppy is not particularly fond of baths or being rinsed off, but she is fond of dirt and mud. The leather version worked so well at keeping her calm, I wanted to try the fabric version to help hold her still during baths, water rinses, and other grooming. It works great at keeping her calm and still and dries quickly. I did not want to get the leather soaked during baths and rinses.
    Ease of putting the halter on-I find it equally easy to place both the leather and fabric on my puppy. However, my son and husband who are a little less patient and more rushed prefer the fabric for ease of putting it on our puppy.
    We love both of them.

    After my adult dog that I recently adopted from the Humane Society rubbed the hair off his nose with the gentle leader, I knew I had to go in a different direction. He had never been walked on a leash and is 75 pounds of muscle. I got the leather Perfect Pace and began training. He’s a very good walker now and I have been very please with the product. Until this morning. It took him about forty seconds to chew through the leather and took off. We got him back, but I will not be re-ordering this product. I thought we were safe with the safety attachment but we were not.

    This really does work! I’m training a service dog as a puppy raiser and we had really bad problems with forging ahead and pulling. Especially with rabbits and other dogs. With this halter on, I have total confidence that he can be controlled without pulling my arm out of socket. The only reason I took one star off was because it does slip down quite often when the dog is standing still or waiting. Maybe most people will not notice because my dog wears it everywhere, and all day with public access. So there are a lot of times when he is in the back seat of the car and the halter slips down and has to be removed and refitted. One other comment and possible enhancement…use a wider material instead of just the rope. A flatter padded material around the nose would be great. Other than that, this really does work!

    I have tried so many things for my English Setter that likes to pull, especially when he gets excited or interested in something. Harnesses, even the no-pull kind, don’t do much. One no-pull harness seemed to help but he shortened his stride and just didn’t seem happy in it. A friend recommended I try this and I have been extremely pleased! He does not pull at all anymore and will heel right by my side easily when needed. This is very quick to put on and take off so it’s perfect for multiple short walks daily while living in an apartment. The first time it went on he did paw at it, but redirecting his attention with treats and commands did the trick. Since the first day he doesn’t mind having it put on and doesn’t even act like he notices it there. I will be buying two more of these for my parents dogs!

    Great design! I have two large dogs who like to think they are in charge. With the perfect pace halter and one 8-way lead, I can easily control both of them. Not only are they effective, they look great! I have people stop me and ask about the system all the time. I love your products and your service. I recommend you all the time.

    This head halter changed everything for my German Shepherd. I had him in several other head halters and he would fight it and drag his nose through the grass, lay down and rub his head side to side and paw at his face. He put up a fuss for the first two minutes after I put the Perfect Pace on and then just walked loosely at my side. He put pressure on the other halters no matter how much I worked with him to get him to just walk with no pull on the leash it never worked, this worked the first night.

  28. 5 out of 5

    (verified owner):

    I’ve used another brand for almost 20 years while training service dogs.

    The first thing I immediately noticed was that the puppy didn’t drop to the ground and try and take it off.
    The second thing is that it fits your dog with no adjustment after you put it on.
    Finally the comment most people have made is that it doesn’t go up into the dogs eyes.
    Great product and I highly recommend it.

    Love the design and the way the collar works. I have large dogs, hard pullers and find it difficult to control them with my bad knees on a regular collar. I only find that it is a bit stiff, wish there was a way to get it softer quicker. I will be ordering two more.

    Thanks for your review! A little leather conditioner will soften up the leather version quickly, we love Bick4.

  31. 5 out of 5


    Love it. I’ve tried both the Gentle Leader and the Halti, and while they worked, I disliked the fit and disliked the way they clasped beneath the dog’s muzzle. This one clips behind the head. I really like that! It doesn’t require constant adjustment as we walk. It applies gentle backward pressure should my dog decide to pull. It doesn’t rub my dog’s eyes. It fits nicely regardless of the size of my dog’s head. My dog doesn’t fight it the way she fights the other head halters that I’ve used. It’s genius! Simple, but effective.
