Comfort Halter to be the most comfortable for the dog. It’s easy to fit
and easy to put on and take off. I heartily recommend it for all dogs who
need that extra bit of control.”
I have long been a fan of the Comfort Trainer Head Collar. I think it is far superior to the Gentle Leader (which I think is mis-used by many pet owners and trainers who keep them very tight, for extra control). I have had personal experience with the GL wearing the fur from dogs’ faces, and have seen this with clients’ dogs (and my own) even when the collar is used appropriately. The flat nylon material is very abrasive. I’ve also used a Halti, but it too uses abrasive flat nylon material in its construction and does not come in as many sizes as it might, to fit a wide range of dogs’ face shapes. The Comfort Trainer is particularly appropriate for brachycephalic dogs, while other head halters risk eye injury to “smoosh faced” dogs. I used the Comfort Trainer for nine year with Luca, he never fussed with it on, because he found it comfortable, while he hated the GL and and I hated it because it destroyed the fur on his face even when I lined it with moleskin. Luca was a puller from day one, until the day he died, when he was the slightest bit aroused (which was most of the time) he pulled. I could never have worked him in public without a head collar of some sort. The Comfort Trainer is made with rounded braided material that is soft. Nate, at 18 months, has worn a GL all his life and still fusses at it. I’ve switched him over to a Comfort Trainer, and he seems much more content with it, although some fussing still occurs, most likely out of habit. Like the design of the Halti, the Comfort Trainer can’t be dragged off the nose by a frustrated dog’s paws. It comes with two different buckle options. I prefer the model that has both a tongued buckle, and a quick release buckle. It allows me to fit the collar to his face with the tongued buckle and then use the quick release for easy off and on. When I bought my first Comfort Trainer, I thought it was expensive, by comparison to other head collars on the market, and set myself to a short-lived experiment; I decided to make one myself, copying the design of the CT. Eight hours and a very crude approximation later, I decided that the Miriam Fields-Babineau, the designer and manufacturer, had earned every penny she received for her efforts. She used to make every Comfort Trainer herself, but now has a manufacturer who creates her stock.

My issue with the Gentle Leader is that due to the constantly cinched nature of the device around the dog’s muzzle the dog is being corrected the entire time the GL is on the dog. This removes the dog’s ability to make the right choice which inhibits the dogs ability to learn. From my perspective, the best part of training a dog or working with a dog is seeing them learn and capturing their break through moments. I do not like any form of over restriction when working with dogs, young or old. I have never met a dog that needed constant correction.
