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.

34 reviews for The Perfect Pace™ no-pull Dog Halter

  1. Kate Mortensen

    This halter has been a huge help in teaching my service dog (still an older puppy) to ignore other dogs and to pay more attention to me. I wish I had used it from the start.
    I got the braided halter to start with; may eventually go to the leather model. The braided one is well-made, and Bold Lead’s customer service was extremely helpful telling me what I needed to know to make a good decision between the two. They also offered to give me some training as to how to use it on my dog, which I encourage anyone to accept.

  2. Jill Carter (verified owner)

    I’ve tried many different types of head collar to help me with my over-stimulated Border Collie but this is the last one I had to buy. I was intrigued by the design and the positive reactions of other people buying Bold Lead Designs products. Checking the products out I was pleased to see they would deliver to the UK without wanting to charge a stupid price for postage. So I went ahead. That was 3 years ago.

    What a great lead it is – I have the woven one in brown as I have a sable and white dog the lead doesn’t stand out on him. It’s easy to put on and I’m not known for my dexterity! The lead sits on his nose nicely and doesn’t ride up into his eyes as other brands have done. He also doesn’t try to scrape it off all the time like previous halters and it doesn’t dig in to his nose.

    I’m very pleased I bought this all-in-one lead, I feel more confident walking him and he’s far more controllable with this on. It really does what it says on the description!

  3. Sunny (verified owner)

    I love how simple and elegant this lead is.

    My lab will pull like a truck when walked without this, but as soon as I put it on she is calm and goes into ‘work’ mode. It’s lovely for walking through busy places.

    I get lots of people asking where they can get one from as they’ve never seen anything like this.

  4. Theresa Day (verified owner)

    We’ve had the Perfect Pace for three months now, so we do have some experience with it. Our dog is a one year old mini Australian Shepherd, 28 pounds. We find this lead difficult to put on as Bae tends to fight it. Once it is on, he still tends to pull, but not as much as a regular choke chain. If you let it relax just a little, it will slip off his nose. So three stars is all we can rate it.

  5. Adrienne Atwood (verified owner)

    Was the perfect lead I was needing for big Lola. it doesn’t mush her eyes and she doesn’t even know its on.. Thank you for all your help with her harness and now the perfect lead. Makes my life so much more comfortable as well as my big Lola.

  6. Christine B

    I just wanted to thank you. I have a dominant breed and struggled for years to have a pleasant walking experience with him. I’ve used face harnesses before, but they were always uncomfortable for him with his short nose, not to mention they put pressure on his face rather than the back of his neck – also seems to be uncomfortable. His face harness broke and I decided to search the Internet for something more effective. I got this product in three days, and had the best walk we’ve had in three years. He understood the concept almost immediately and didn’t seem to be bothered by the material as it is soft. Thanks again for such an amazing product, and I will be sure to spread the word!!
