Typically sells for $15-$25 depending on the retailer. I thought this was a fairly good price. Within $1 of the all time low according to the camels. Good timing for anyone that adopted a puppy in the spring since they're likely getting big enough to drag you on walks by now.

Good deal! Used one of these to train my dog. Paid way more than that a few years ago.

Too bad only the Large size are down to $10.
I would need a Medium for my 50# dog.

So my 3 year old 128lb dog has had a bit of a pulling problem since I adopted him last year. Is this something that can be used to teach an older dog, and for anyone who's used one should I pony up the extra 5 bucks and get the XL?

This tool and front-attachment harnesses like the one by Petsafe are proven effective and are the most commonly recommended for training a dog with pulling issues.

I placed this on my dog after a 3 day training period and he rubbed his face into the concrete driveway to the point of bleeding within 20-30 seconds of leaving the door.

Don't expect to use it without first getting the appropriate size and adjustment dialed in and then undergoing a training regimen like the one specified in the DVD that come with the product. It took me awhile to get the sizing correct but I only trained my dog for a few days instead of the week that they recommend. As a result I had a bad outcome even though my dog seemed to tolerate it just fine inside the house right before the failed first walk.

These are best if you have a situation that requires nearly 100% reduction in risk of the dog pulling. For example, a petite individual with a powerful dog who poses a risk to others or an elderly person at risk for hip fracture due to an unpredictable dog of any size.

My situation was resolved by using a front-attachment harness and setting rules for humans regarding dog walking. I also used a long-line (not a retractable line) for related issues specific to my dog.

Edit: For completeness sake I'll also mention shock collars and choke chains as they are also used by many trainers. As they are controversial methods I won't go into it except to say that nearly all pulling issues can be resolved by using either a head halter or front attachment harness along with addressing socialization issues where possible (google "leash aggression").

ive used every choke chain or harness available with my pit bull, she'd choke herself out with the chain and keep pulling, she'd pull herself out of the harness. this gentle leader is honestly the best collar for dogs that pull- when they try to pull, their nose goes into the ground. especially helpful after knee surgery for her so she cant dig in and try to pull.

This is definitely something that can be used for older dogs. I have an almost 3 year old pit that we adopted. He's about 85lbs and he's horrible about pulling. He's a completely different dog with this thing on. We're still working on getting to the point that we don't have to rely on it, but for now taking him to the vet or anywhere else is a lot easier. Some of the best money I've ever spent.

These things are great. I used it to train my puppy who is 3 now. I still put it on when running with her just in case she sees a rabbit and tries to run for it she can't pull me down. Or hiking downhill cause she will pull me down the hill. The good thing is she loves to do everything that we would use it for, so she doesn't mind having it on at all. I feel like it only allows her to pull 10% of what she can pull without it. And it doesn't hurt her.

I used head collars when leash training my 50lb dog, but the Gentle Leader's design allowed the dog to paw the strap that goes over his nose off his snout. I'd have to tighten the nose strap uncomfortably tight to keep it on. I preferred the Halti (also known as Holt) version made by The Company of Animals which had straps connecting the nose piece to the neck piece.

Edited to add image of Halti..
