Dog Scarf for a Big Dog

It was a cold day in Humboldt County, California, so we put on Ruger’s handmade dog scarf and took her for a quick outing to one of favorite beaches in Humboldt County, California.

In this video, you’ll see Ruger our Bullmastiff wearing a a Petsafe Gentle Leader headcollar. If you have a big dog with the capability to pull hard, this would be a good dog collar to at least try. In comparison to the martingale dog collar that we typically use, there is an extra amount of control that this headcollar provides.

We only use the Gentle Leader when we need to ensure we will have the extra control if necessary, such as on walks or in public places. Not only has she been charged after on two separate occasions by unleashed dogs in our neighborhood, but she’s also been targeted for being a big dog. A person walking past our property had the nerve to tell us that she would spray Ruger with pepper spray if I didn’t have Ruger under control. We were standing on our own property when this happened, and Ruger was still a puppy and she was leashed up. That’s when I learned that not everyone will think Ruger is a sweetheart.

If you’re concerned that your dog is going to hurt themselves from pulling so hard, we’d recommend at least testing it out. My husband was an immediate supporter once we found the proper head collar. There are different brands available, but the Petsafe Gentle Leader is the one that fits our Bullmastiff properly and doesn’t allow her to wiggle out of it.

And, if you have ever wondered how to put on a Gentle Leader head collar, or if your dog will be able to eat or drink with it on, then watch here:
