THE SIMPLE LEADER HEADCOLLAR
The Simple Leader Headcollar comes in a range of colours, 19mm width with the option of 25mm width (please ask for this), plain or padded noseband or solid brass harness ring. More readily accepted by dogs, easy to put on, does not inhibit the dog while off the lead, affordable and soft to wear.
Our simplest most effective design yet!
100% PERFECT! Put it on Ollie this morning, he once rubbed his face but from then on he was very happy to wear it for the whole walk and, because he has it on (and he knows) he walked perfectly. Because of the fit unlike [other halters] it can stay on the whole time and doesn’t inhibit the dog at all. There are no loose bits to catch on anything so its perfectly safe. It is so simple and easy to use and it works very well indeed. I am a very happy lady thank you Sarah. Wendy McDonald Nov 2016
“Excellent. Easy to fit and use, and can walk the dog on either side. I use it with the Meg Heath dog safety lead. My dog’s measurement was between size 2 and 3 so used the comments box on the order form and received a very prompt reply from Sarah. Just ordered a second headcollar to keep in the car.” Lynn, December 2017
- Take a tape measure or a piece of string and a straight ruler.
- Measure the dog in one measurement in a figure of 8.
- Chose your dogs size from the options.
Safety Lead specifically for this product
This is a totally new product. The lead compliments the Simple Leader by providing extra security in extreme cases where dogs may slip their head collar or paw it off, which can happen with anything a dog wears on its’ head.
The safety lead consists of a lead that attaches to both the collar and the O ring under the dog’s chin on the Simple Leader while not deflecting from its’ effectiveness, however, please note it must be fitted correctly, see below.
If you look at the image on our Head Collar Safety Lead, it explains how the lead must be fitted to get optimum effectiveness from the product. If the lead is not pulling from the head collar but in fact pulling from the collar, the head collars effectiveness is significantly reduced.
To get the best use out of our products, they must, as with anything, be used for the intended purpose, be correctly fitted and not misused in any way. Correct fitting means that these criteria are met:
- The neck strap sits immediately behind the dog’s ears, not lose further down the dog’s neck.
- The head collar is nice and snug so as to not be uncomfortable for the dog to wear.
- Be situated on the dog’s nose so as not to interfere with sight or panting.
The purpose of the Simple Leader is to be able to help to reduce or even eliminate pulling on the lead. It helps to kindly guide the dogs head and the body should follow.
What you should not do –
- Use a head collar to correct a dogs’ behaviour
- Rely on it as 100% security if your dog is likely to be reactive or uncomfortable in any way when wearing a head collar.
- Use with a long training lead
- Use with any car seatbelt or car lead
Safety Precautions –
If your dog is reactive or is getting used to wearing a head collar, be responsible and ‘double lead’ your dog. This means attaching a lead to the Head Collar and to a securely fitted collar or use a double ended lead. We do sell the Head Collar Safety Lead too which attaches to 2 products, usually the head collar and a securely fitted collar.
If your dogs’ recall is not 100%, be sensible and assess the risks. Should a headcollar come off if not fitted tightly enough, then you should either not use it or follow our safety precautions above.
Disclaimer – All recommendations for fitting and use must be met. Safe use relies on fitting correctly, correct use and regular inspection of your products to make sure they are in a safe condition. If in doubt do not use.
