Now that we've committed to using the Gentle Leader Head Collar, we've been trying to figure out how best to pad the underside of the snout loop. G's delicate fur tends to rub off (you can see a patch in the picture below above her jowl) and she will still take any opportunity to try and scrape it offer her nose if I'm not paying attention.
We looked into the "deluxe" Gentle Leader system, but (we're prissy) we really don't like any of the prints they offer. They tend to be in red, blue or black and we like to minimize the head collar as much as possible by purchasing it in a complementary color to G's coat (we go with the fawn). I've found the darker colors tend to prompt people to think it's a muzzle rather than an anti-pull device.
We've also invested in a 6 foot, 3/8" matching fawn color leash with a much smaller clasp, so the metal doesn't clank against her shoulders or chin when we're walking. Previously, we had been using a 1/2" inch leash and the weight of the clasp seemed excessive and bothersome to G when walking. It seems to have reduced the rubbing somewhat, by I'm still looking for some type of padding.
Our next "try" will include either adhesive moleskin or sheepskin on the underside of the muzzle loop, but was wondering if anyone knows of other possible fixes for this issue? Do you know any other products that might help?
