When I take Rocky for a walk he's fine most of the way, sometimes when crossing the road he starts to get a bit worked up and runs ahead or stops and starts biting on the lead. This has pretty much stopped though because when we cross the road I constantly talk calmly to him and give him a treat on the other side.
However, he walks on a gentle lead head collar. I HATE it, but I have to use it because whenever I walk him on a normal collar he pulls really hard, to the point where he chokes! Anyway, he doesnt really like the head collar either as he paws at it and rubs his face on my legs to try and get it off anyway always at about the same spot (just before getting back home) he stops, and starts jumping up and biting the lead and going crazy!
My trainer suggests pulling the head collar up to make it tight and uncomfortable until he lets go. I said no chance. Another trainer said to use a spray bottle and say 'No' and then give him a spray and then praise him when he lets go. I have tried this once and it did work, but I really dont like the idea . Telling him to leave it and offer him a treat when he does does not work. I need to do something because he could hurt himself by jumping and pulling, and sometimes he gets very close to biting the metal clip on the lead!
Are there any other methods to snap him out of his little crazy moment?
