I am totally at my wits end now with trying to walk our Charlie dog. He is now just over 9 months old, and he still pulls like crazy. So much so that sometimes he actually makes himself sick! This is getting worse than ever now as he's getting bigger and heavier. He has already damaged ligiments in my shoulder which I ended up at the local Doctors surgery with! I have tried everything. Treats while walking, different leads including sliplead (which chokes him to death), and now I am trying to use a 'gentle leader', but he pulls that off after I have almost had to fight him to get it on him in the first place. The design of that lead is pretty pathetic to be honest, as he finds it quite easy to pull back off his nose. I truly am at a loss. I think that I am now beginning to resign myself to thinking that he is impossible to be trained to walk properly on a lead. He is far too intelligent and knows how to get out of anything! We should have called him Houdini!! I really have followed every single idea that has been given to me by either people on here or books etc. NOTHING works. Very frustrating. Tonight I have again attempted to put this damned gentle leader thing on, must be 20 times, and every time he dives on the floor and uses his front paws to pull it off. He will miss his walkies tonight as my arm(s) cannot take the punishment again tonight. I am beginning to have a constant numbness now in my left arm which is from his pulling. Sorry if I sound a bit down, but I really am stuck now. Pity Caeser Milan don't do UK dog owners!
