My 5 and a half year old Dobe/Lab/Husky?? King has never been great on a leash, he was at the "ok" point until I was hurt in a car wreck and didn't walk him for some time. Since then, he just pulls and pulls and it's torture to walk him. I have tried all the things suggested, turning around when he pulls, stopping when he pulls, etc. I put a harness on him and it's worse, as his choking (when he does it, he has an "iron neck") at least stops him. I tried one of the head halter, and he goes ballistic with it on, and panicks. He has his reasons to pull, his pup, Dilbert lives on the end of the street and he wants to see him, then there's Romeo, the Italian Pointer, then George, the Hyena clone, then there's the Pug, April, then there's the Lab, Buddy, and so on without end. There are so many friendly dogs to visit that he just wants to pull from one house to the next. He burns out eventually, and is ok, not pulling badly until he rests up, but the first mile and a half is brutal. It's amazing how hard 62 pounds can pull! Anyone got any oddball tricks to try. He will not take food on a walk, BTW, and it really doesn't work on him in general.
