    REI Members get back an estimated $ 2.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Premier Gentle Leader Headcollar is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for dogs who pull! My dog loved to drag me everywhere, and it was getting to a point where I didn't even want to walk him anymore. I bought this and he immediately stopped. Be sure to read the directions/watch the video before actually using it. (I'm one of those people who don't ever read directions and couldn't figure out how to put it on!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leash with instant results I have a small puppy about 8 months old who constantly lunged on walks and was simply not a great walker. After chewing up the clasps on his harness, I looked at REI for a new one and came across the gentle leader. On the first walk I immediately noticed a difference. The leader is so effective at redirecting dogs that from the get-go, walking was a breeze and more enjoyable for our pup and the whole family. I can only imagine what a difference it could make to a large dog. Bonus was the instructional DVD.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually does work. First of all, I've tried a number of these types of products, and this is the only one which actually is as effective as the "metal prong" collars. It actually does work, but does also require the "collar" portion to be REALLY tight. I'm contiually worrying I'll be pinching her skin with the catch when I'm putting it on However, it does do a "Jedi mind trick" on her She actually seems to prefer the prongs, as this one messes with her mind. If she's obeying, either is not going to mess with her. If she needs correction, with the prongs she will comply. With this collar, it will disorient her, and completely break her train of thought. If reminds me of the Voneegut story where people with high IQ's had to wear a device that emitted a loud noise at random intervals so they wouldn't have the advantage of superior intelligence. It's in the end not quite as effective as the prongs in some ways, as I'm not sure she can recall what the hell she was doing to get the correction, but it does work without having to cause physical discomfort. I do think she actually prefers the physical discomfort to the psychic discomfort this device provides. For my wife, this is superior, as she doesn't feel like she's hurting our dog. AS you might tell, I think the prongs are actually more humane in the long run, but the dog will do fine with either.
