GENTLE LEADER DEVELOPERS
 
The Gentle Leader® Behavioral Management System was developed by Dr. R. K. Anderson, DVM, (Professor Emeritus and Director, Animal Behavior Clinic, College of Veterinary Medicine and Center to Study Human Animal Relationships and Environments, University of Minnesota, and Behavior Consultant to the Animal Humane Society of Golden Valley, MN); and Ruth E. Foster (Past President of the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors).

Dr. Anderson had extensive experience as the Director of the Animal Control program and Animal Shelter in Denver, CO for eight years, and Ruth Foster had extensive experience as the Director of Training for the Twin City Obedience Training Club in Minneapolis and many years as an AKC judge. They came together in the early 1980's with a common interest in developing products for more effective behavior management. Their goal was to design a product that would provide families with fast, humane, "fingertip control."
