She doesn't pull as hard as when she was a puppy, but she does pull then stop and repeat then run then repeat.

I appreciate the advice. I have a six month old puppy who I recently adopted who pulls consistently. I have done this and it is working! Thank you!!

For those of you who have leash pullers, there are several ways to tackle the issue. A gentle lead is one of them, and simply doing an about face or turning to the left or right whenever they pull is another. Some dogs protest against the gentle leader, and some take to it like ducks in water. Dogs usually take to halters much better than gentle leaders, but I think gentle leaders are much more effective. When your dog starts to pull, stop or change direction. As soon as the dog allows the leash to become loose, say "good" and give them a treat at the knee. Once the dog learns that if the leash falls loose you get a treat, they will allow it to fall loose to get that reward. There is no need for prong collars as I have fixed this problem on hundreds of dogs with a clicker, treats, and a halter or gentle leader. Prong collars and choke leashes acerbate the problem and makes the dog reactive intensity much worse. Be consistent, be consistent, be consistent. The more consistent you are, the quicker the dog learns to loose leash walk.

My dog starts pulling, whining and barking excessively when he see's another dog when he's on leash, almost like he wants to play. I've introduced him to other dogs, taken him to dog parks and he still gets excited, i just want him to walk normal when other dogs are around when he's on leash, its very frustrating. I make him sit but as soon as we walk he goes crazy, I dunno how to make him calm down.

@Richard
We use choke collars all the time because once our dogs were play fighting and ones tooth got stuck in it and she freaked out and got it twisted and it almost choked him and these don't have anything for the teeth to get stuck in but other than that they don't do much good to get them to heel.

My lab (male) jumps a lot of us, whenever put in a body harness to take him out for a walk or pee. Once outside the house, (at times) he circles around us at great speed, even in the elevator sometimes, without any rhyme or reason? Any suggestions? It is really difficult to handle him in this hyper state - he is 14 months old. thanks

A trainer I know suggested a way as a last resort: every other step, give the dog (who is at your side) a treat. This way, the dog will learn it's a good thing to stay by your side.

What's described here does work very well and really is easy. The real key is to use a head halter like Halti or Easy Leader (I have no experience with the harness but have heard it works well also). Choice between the two brands is preference but the conformation of the dog's head is an important factor - we have St Bernards and the Halti fits them best.

You make it sound easy. As Senor Juensez said:"Easy for you, difficult for me." I've tried everything except using the different collars.
