Hi, we've got x2 American Bulldogs (x1 M x1F) and walking them is an absolute nightmare! They're usually such obedient dogs and we've spent time training them but for some reason they totally lose the plot when we walk them. They pull on their leads and are very excitable, especially when they see another dog or person.
They're 9 and 10 months old and are very friendly dogs, not aggressive in the slightest and I don't know if its because they're still young dogs or if it will be an ongoing thing if we don't go about it all in the right way.
When they're doing the right thing and walking nicely, we compliment them and are currently only using a normal collar and leash that is sometimes converted into a "chocker" sort of set up but they dont seem to respond to chastising or the choking concept.
Anyone got any advice? My patience and skin on my hands are wearing thin!
