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: For many dogs, 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. Many dogs prefer this style of halter because the leash does not dangle under their chin or force them to turn their head. The lightweight, minimal design is less annoying than other halters. Professional dog trainers love this training tool because it is not aversive!

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!

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.

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

Made in USA: Product is designed and handcrafted in the USA. The package is designed, printed, and assembled in Colorado. Woven material and tan leather are also American made!


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.

  1. Dawn (Mama of Mya&Meeko)

    Before I purchase, I would like to know who has used this on a snow breed like a husky?

    • Katrina

      Hi Dawn, I’m not sure if other clients will respond, but yes, this is very effective on the northern breeds. Give it a try! We do have a satisfaction guarantee.

    I purchased the BLD Infinity Lead Halter and Lead combo for my mobility service dog in training. Malcolm is learning quickly but still likes to use his nose and sniff more than is appropriate when he’s working and training out in public places. With the Infinity Lead, I can gently and easily remind him to stay focused on his mobility work. The Infinity Lead is narrow and lightweight. Malcolm adjusted to wearing it with virtually no difficulty. He pawed at it once or twice and then wore it like he’s worn it all his life. It fits and folds easily into my hand in a very comfortable way. The only “negative” I’ve found with this product, and it’s VERY minor, is that because of how it adjusts it’s difficult to adjust the fit exactly the same each time. We’re both grateful to have found such a comfortable and affordable solution for his service dog working and training needs.

    Like many people I am always looking for ways to increase communication between me and my dog. I’ve tried many other traditional head halters and found that it irritated my dog due to the accidental corrections he would receive from the weight of the leash clip dangling and swinging as we walked. Over time Billy got less and less willing to work and move forward in the head halter.

    Then I got this wonderful leash. Billy took to it right away with no real period of adjustment. I just put it on him, adjusted it and away we went. He doesn’t paw at it and once again moves forward willing and is even happy to go to work when he sees it. We absolutely love this leash and the length is perfect if you are working your dog in harness for balance/mobility like I do.

    The feed back I get from the infinity lead is absolutely amazing, I can feel where Billy’s attention is and he can tell where I want him to go even before I cue him to turn left or right. This will always be a part of our working gear.

    Our dog Molly has pulled and tugged since we got her as a puppy! We took her to training classes, tried 2 different harnesses and 3 gentle leaders, and nothing worked. She is a stocky lab and is very strong now that she’s no longer a pup. I have sprained my ankle 3 times walking her due to being thrown off balance by her tugging! Anyway, my sister in law was visiting us and had this lead with her and I borrowed it to walk Molly and was amazed. I ordered one as soon as they left and I love it! It has made our walks so much more enjoyable and not something I totally dread. I think I will order another one for my other dog Sampson, not necessarily because he’s a tugger, but he’s 140lbs, and just because it’s a great lead!

  6. Dana and the Namaste Dogs

    The Infinity Lead is by far the best head collar out there. So lightweight the dog barely notices it’s there, and just the lightest touch provides feedback that makes communicating with my assistance dog a dream. I highly recommend it!
