    Default I can't walk my own dog.

    Ok so, zeus is incredibly strong. I haven't been able to walk him for a while. It's usually my husband that does it. I have to literally lean like a cholo( it's a song lyric) ... Lmao. Ok just kidding ignore that.. Well what can I do so he doesn't pull so hard. And I think I'm the pack leader. He listens to me at home even outside. But once we go for that walk he pulls so hard. Is he going through a teenage I don't want to be seen with my mom stage lol. All jokes aside help.

    We had the same problem with both of our dogs, we bought a Freedom no pull harness and it worked instantly, the cheapest was on Amazon, make sure you get the whole package, it will come with the harness and 4 foot leash. Money well spent

    Walter did the same thing right away. Once he started really pulling we would stop, wait 5 seconds or so and then continue our walk. It took a little bit but he eventually figured out that if he was going to pull, we weren't going anywhere.

    I would have to agree that when he pulls you stop. Do you use the command "heel"? It's always helped me. Im a petite woman and have had to walk my dads 100 lb American Bulldog and my brothers 80 pound pit bulls. So I know what it's like to be dragged down the street once or twice.

    I had the same problem with my dog pulling and had to resort to a pinch collar. I only had to correct him three times on the first walk and he has been walking perfectly ever since.

    Correct... pinch collars are a temporary measure and should not be needed for a long time.

    Well I don't want to use one. He pulls so hard. What if he doesn't care I don't want him getting hurt. He pulls hard and it seems like nothing hurts them. He's slammed into my car doors soo manny times. And just walks away, I'm trying to follow him cause it sounded so loud. I feel so bad. When he does that.
