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.

    Another great blog post!

    I have a 6.5 month, over 55 pounds pitbull mixed with an unknown large breed dog. He has been a puller since we got him 3 months ago. A friend suggested a special harness to me that clips in the front and it worked great up until about a month ago and now he’s too big to even notice it’s there and he drags me around with ease(I’m a 110 pound woman). I heard about head leads working well with dogs that pull, so I tried a popular one from Petsmart, and all my puppy would do was try to paw it off his face despite numerous sessions and distractions with it. The leash hanging down under his face and putting weight on his muzzle was definitely the problem. I actually found this lead on accident, and thank goodness I did. This is lightweight and he doesn’t even notice it’s there, I just took him for a walk for the first time with it and he was a COMPLETELY different dog! It was so incredible I had to write a review for this lead right away!! He and I are actually going to ENJOY walks now and that makes me so happy, especially since the nicer weather is coming =]

  3. Macy/Maple

    I love this. My service dog isn’t necessarily a puller, nor that distractible, but I like knowing where she is looking without having to see her. She hated the gentle leader and the halti with a passion, she would act like a wild horse at the end of a lead rope, she would also refuse to pick anything up. We have only used this today, but Maple has already forgotten about it and shows no hesitation in picking up my dropped items. I love all of Katrina’s work and couldn’t recommend anything or anyone else now that I’ve caught the Bold Lead Bug :)

  4. Lisa Rose (verified owner)

    Bought two of these for my dogs and we love them! My smaller dog no longer fights having a head collar on and my large dog, a hound, I don’t find myself fighting as much. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments from friends and family who are interested in the design, that it doesn’t smush their eyes and that it is light weight. Very happy!

  5. Jessi C. (verified owner)

    At my Veterinary Hospital I am the Animal Behavior Technician. . . . I absolutely love the concept and design. I teach puppy and adult classes as well as problem solving class such as loose leash walking. I have already been suggesting this leash/head collar as a great training tool but having a few cards or brochures to hand out would be great too.

  6. Mandy

    I purchased the infinity lead through our trainer and love it! I recently lost it in a move and tried walking on a regular leash again, not there yet! I am excited to find your website and purchase another, I cant wait to get back to smooth walks again! I love your product, we had tried the gentle leader before this one and returned it. Your design is simple, easy to use and quick to put on. Thank you!
