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.

    WOW. The Perfect Pace No-Pull Dog Halter is truly amazing. I have a 4 1/2 month old German Short Hair Pointer that’s getting heavier by the day, and has always pulled during our walks. This halter changed our walks completely. While she’s not yet the biggest fan of wearing it (it’s only been 4 days), it calms her down, keeps her focused, and stops her from pulling! I am genuinely blown away by the change in her demeanor when she wears it, and could see it from the first time I put it on her. I bought the leather version and it seems comfortable enough, but will just require more time for her to get used to it. It hasn’t slipped off once tightened despite her rolling around in the grass trying to get it off. Once we get going though, she’s attentive and less distracted by any and everything.

    Would recommend this product 10/10 to anyone with a pup that gets easily distracted during walks and/or has a tendency to pull.

    Thank you BLD!!!!!

    We have a nine-month old Bernadoodle bruiser who I feared would knock us to the ground with his pulling.

    He acclimated to the Perfect Pace halter within five minutes and NO LONGER PULLS AT ALL! Magic!

  3. Niko (verified owner)

    My puppy is easily distracted and a strong puller so walks are not chill experiences. We’ve tried a martingale collar, a front attachment harness, and now a variety of head collars. Of the three we’ve tried, the Perfect Pace is the unrivaled winner.

    It’s lightweight, simple construction doesn’t bother her too much. She’ll lightly fuss with it, but it’s not all the time or to the intensity she rebelled against the Gentle Leader or Sporn head halter. She was so unhappy with them that she’d throw herself on the ground and paw at her face when she’d walk.

    The Perfect Pace is a major relief. Walks are enjoyable for both parties and we avoid using a prong collar.

    The only issue we have is that the leather adjustment fob is very hard to move. It takes a lot of effort and time to either secure or remove the collar. This will loosen with more use though so I’m willing to deal with it.

    This lead works. I’ve tried everything with my dogs. Nothing has worked so instantly with them. It’s comfortable, they get used to it quickly. I have 4 dogs and it’s easy to change the size quickly depending on which dog I’m walking. This has made the difference from not taking them out in public, to walks every evening and weekend.
