Coral will go after cars and bikes. He thinks her tugging does not matter because she is a small dog. I was told I was being cruel using the gentle lead. I do not pull her with it. She pulls herself. Then it corrects her and she will walk beside me. It was working.

Well then keep using it! I don't care if it's my 4lb dog or my 45lb tugging is rude in my opinion. And Gentle Leader is not cruel (hence the name ;)) It's just teaching her how to walk properly. If it works for you and you don't enjoy her tugging than use it.

I used a gentle leader also. This was on an Italian Greyhound though. I have artificial knees and hips, and don't want to fall. It worked fine.

Work with you dog, so that he knows a walk is waiting when you put the gentle leader on. Lots of dogs resist, just keep at it.
