Default Help with collars/leash?

I had a disaster today with my dog pulling too hard on the leash and getting away. We have an appointment with a new trainer but in the meantime I need to have better control of her. The problem is she is almost too strong for me, especially when she sees a cat or other dog.

I have used a prong collar for training but I need something she could wear constantly while outside. When we are just outside walking around our property (in the country) I just have her flat collar on with a drag leash on in case I need to grab her quick. Never had to use it until today when someone trespassed on our property with a small dog. My collar/drag leash combo did not work and I payed a price for it. Please offer me suggestions and I don't mind criticism of what I did wrong.

Thanks!
