Here's a successful way to teach your dog to accept a head collar. If your dog lunges (and please, to avoid injury, don't ever use corrections with the Gentle Leader), I'd recommend using something like an Easy Walk body harness instead as the head collar can cause serious damage to the neck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wakterNyUg
