Best lead I have used
August 29, 2021
I have a five month old puppy weighing 48 pounds. I bought the Wonder lead and the dog responded almost immediately to the healing training. It minimises the pull reflex in the dog and is so much easier to use than any lead I have ever used. The DVD is also very helpful to people who try to muscle their dog to heal. I have all ready recommended it to friends.
Prosslips on easily and gives great control

This Lead works better than advertized!
August 3, 2021
This Lead works better than advertised! I am not sure why but the increase in control begins instantly and without the need for forced corrections. The DVD does not explain this but I expect the repeated use will translate into "good" learned habits that will transition into use with all leads. I will continue to use this more in casual settings and in holding blinds to create long term behaviors.
ProsEasy to use and no specialized knowledge needed for amateurs.
ConsJust a bit more difficult to hang around your neck or stuff into pocket when off the dog, truley a minor issue.

July 19, 2021
I have noticed a significant improvement in pulling while using the wonderlead. I am combining the lead with a weekly Huntsmith seminar which is even more helpful. The lead is useful for shaping the dogs behavior but the training changes yours.
ProsAlmost instant response from your dog.
ConsBe prepared by having gloves if you have a large, strong, or intense dog.

I am new to bird dog training and have a very energetic 3 month old Brittany. I was able to literally have him heeling cleanly by my side within 20 minutes of incorporating this lead. In fairness, I had worked on having him heel on a few different sessions with a traditional collar; however, he would not stay in the "zone" and didn't respond that well to the tugs on his lead with the regular collar. When I used the Wonder Lead, it stays right where you need it so puppy can't bite and play with it and is easy to give quick pressure on-pressure off corrections.
ProsQuick response time on the lead relaxing after a corrective tug. I like the stiffness that allows you to keep it relaxed while also keeping it in position above the dog.

The Wonderlead shipped quickly and beat everyone else's price. The customer service team even responded to a note I left in my order to assist me with a future purchase for something that was out of stock at the time. Will be shopping with this team again in the future!

Best way to a correct heel!
May 9, 2021
Love these leads! When putting my 6 month old lab in training, their first comment was that it was obvious he'd been on a retractable lead. After learning how to use it, I borrowed one for our first time we brought him home for a weekend. He's off lead now (perfect heel), but I still use this in public areas. Never going back to a retractable lead.
ProsImmediacy of correction. Durability He knows it means it's time to work
ConsWon't fit in a pocket.

A gentler way to get the
April 23, 2021
This is money well spent. The quick release of tension provides positive, voiceless reward. Easier on the trainer and the dog. A constant hacking used to correct behavior is greatly reduced. Wonder lead has allowed me to work in close proximity while conditioning to a given set of commands. Being able to walk a dog at heal through a yard full of chickens has impressed a number of landowners who have just given my permission to hunt. You don't necessarily need to teach a dog to hunt but you must teach it manners.
ProsEasy to master.
ConsHaven't used it long enough to determine.

April 22, 2021
Bought this to reinforce my dog to heel. Other dog owners told me it's the best and easiest way to do that training. I have not used it yet because of a upcoming Hunt Test. Now that is behind us, l will start the heeling training.
ProsLooks like it will be the perfect side to teach my dog the heel command.

The Wonder Lead works as advertised. My two GSPs are wheeling and moving with rather than trying to pull me around..
ProsDogs respond quickly.
ConsNo real negative but I suggest hanging it up to let the curl relax.

March 9, 2021
This simple design is efficient and well made. I'm no stranger to training field dogs, but my recent pup is very smart and stubborn. All her obedience training had been going well, with the exception of the heel command. The wonder Lead got us on track on day one and continues to be a valuable tool for maintaining and refining the heel command.
ProsSimple, effective, and easy to clean. The design and materials pretty much guarantee that it will be used by generations in your outfit.
ConsGloves are recommended, but they should be mandatory when using this tool.

January 18, 2021
although I would have preferred a shorter lead, you can certainly shorten it yourself if you want. the stiffness of the lead allows immediate correction and release making communication to the dog great--they get it. I would highly recommend this product, despite the cost.
Prosexcellent communication with the dog

I have been using one of these for years, pointers, labs or just teaching dogs to walk at heel. It make either right action easy and wrong action difficult. Will continue to use nad recommend.

This lead is perfect for my 6 mos. old GSP. She is much more aware and mindful of where I am on a walk than with a check cord or regular leash and she is developing good habits as a result. I also used it on my 9 yr. old GSP and it had the same effect...great product!

It is a Wonder!

I have been training dogs for over 50 years and this is one of the best training devices I have used. It works a advertised and is more effective than a standard choke collar. My only concern is that it is not as comfortable to hold as a nice leather leash.
ProsVery effective on active puppies.
ConsNot comfortable to hold.

The Wonder Lead has been instrumental in leash training my 100 lbs Labrador Retriever (yes, he is 100% Lab). I feel confident he will mind when on outings and there are multiple distractions around. If there is a drawback, it is that the lead must be placed exactly where the instructions indicate.
ProsAchieves desired results.
ConsThe learning curve (although small) The rope can burn your hands if the dog lunges, etc.
