Simple Leader Dog Head Collar
Our simplest most effective Head Collar design yet. The Simple Leader Head Collar has the option for a padded noseband or solid brass harness ring. This head collar is more readily accepted by dogs, easy to put on, does not inhibit the dog while off lead, affordable and soft to wear.
This head collar does not ride up under the eyes (it must be fitted snug otherwise it will not be effective), helps prevent pulling and dogs just love this head collar. Additional Head Collar Safety Lead maximises safety while using the head collar.
Once the head collar is fitted on your dog, just attach your dogs lead on the O ring situated under your dogs chin.

This headcollar is 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 headcollars] 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
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“Excellent headcollar. Easy to fit and use, and can walk the dog on either side. I use it with the Meg Heath headcollar 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 as above in one measurement in a figure of 8.
- Chose your dogs size from the options.
SAFETY LEAD FOR SIMPLE LEADER HEADCOLLAR
This a totally new product. The lead compliments the Simple Leader Head Collar 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 head collar 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 Head Collar while not deflecting from the head collars’ efficiency, however, please note it must be fitted correctly, see below.
Our version 2 head collar safety lead is made up of one small trigger hook and one medium trigger hook. The small trigger goes on the dog’s collar and the medium trigger goes on the dogs head collar. 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.
This head collar safety lead is now available to buy separately here.
Fitting & Usage Instructions for the Simple Leader Head Collar
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 dogs ears, not lose further down the dogs neck.
- The head collar is nice and snug so as to not be uncomfortable for the dog to wear.
- Be situated on the dogs nose so as not to interfere with sight.
The purpose of the Simple Leader Head Collar 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 dog
Rely on it as 100% security if your dog is likely to be reactive or uncomfortable in any way when wearing a head collar.
Fitting Instructions –
We cannot stress enough that if any head collar is not fitted correctly then they may not work as they were designed to. ‘Fitted correctly’ means correct size and fitting following our guidelines.
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 head collar come off if not fitted tightly enough, then you should either not use it or follow our safety precautions above.
Disclaimer – Meg Heath Dog Leads cannot be held responsible for a failure of any of our products. All recommendations for fitting and use must be met.
