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 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 is available in two different materials: woven or leather. Please see the Material Options tab for more information.

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.

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!

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

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

Recommended for medium and larger breeds (over 20 lbs.) due to the way pressure is applied.

Our Golden TAN BRIDLE leather is 100% American vegetable-tanned leather, made with NO dyes or toxic metallic chemicals. Reminiscent of fine English horse tack, this leather is superior in quality to any other leash you’ve seen. Every leash is HAND-OILED to bring out the softness, so your leash arrives supple and feels great in your hands immediately and only improves with age. The color will darken with use and age. 

Our lovely BLACK LATIGO leather is cut from select USA hides– it is solid black and is superior to ordinary leashes in texture and quality. It is incredibly durable, yet is very flexible. It feels great in your hands and will simply get better with age. 

All leather items come with our unmatched Lifetime Warranty– for more information see the Warranty tab.

Leather care is easy! Don’t worry too much, and don’t be afraid to use your items — we promise leather is incredibly resilient, and regular weather won’t hurt it. If you think your item looks dirty, dry, or just need a little extra love, pouring a little leather conditioner on a cloth, and rubbing it in like lotion will usually do the trick. Baths and a jaunt in the river are just fine, but you might want to offer a little conditioner to your products afterwards. Saltwater can be harsh, so after a visit to the ocean, a good rinse in fresh water and proper conditioning will help preserve and protect your treasured leash or collar.

    I have two of these and plan on getting a third so each of my dogs has one! I have been moving away from using prong collars and electric collars in public due to the negative perception and after trying 2 other head collar type products that either didn’t have a safety feature or were not very effective I decided to try the perfect pace! My 100 lb Bernese Mountain Dog who pulled through his prong collar immediately went from tugging me down the block to walking beside me calmly just by applying very gentle pressure with the leash on the perfect pace any time he started to get to the end of his leash. Neither of the 2 dogs who wear perfect pace in my house try to remove it (I did condition them to it appropriately with treats and across the course of a couple of days) and I’m so glad my walks are better!

  2. Collette Yee (verified owner)

    Can I give 4.5 stars? It’s so close to perfect. I was looking for a head collar with behind the head attachments and bought a few different ones to compare. So far this one is my favorite! With the leather one I find that the nose loop doesn’t adjust very easily in response to leash pressure like the sporn one does, however the length of the segments and weight is way better than the Sporn. Hopefully it will slide better as the leather softens.
