Well, I haven't ever had the clip pop off and Boss minds the Gentle Leader very well, when another dog comes along he is told to sit stay, and he does (Of course he has not shown any signs of dog-aggression yet, he just wants to play). I wouldn't use it if he pulled on it a lot, I would be concerned that he would injure himself. Some people on here have said they heard it can cause spinal injuries.Stormy said:Tara<3Boss, just be careful with the G/L. I use one on my 2 dogs Storm only while we wait to see the trainer. Well today a really tiny dog was being walked and Storm went nuts trying to attack it. I sort of grabbed her collar to try to settle her a bit and the snap popped open.
Thank God she didn't get to the dog I grabbed her straight away and held her until the dog was gone before being able to do it back up.
Just something to watch for with any collar that uses the snap into place do-up.
I went and brought a large metal clip that will allow me to link her lead to a regular collar as well.
