|J and J M||By the way, the dog is west German show line not Czech. One generation in Czech does not make Czech. Lots of "SZ" in pedigree.|

CURRENTLY if you cannot control your dog, then you need a tool that'll help you do that and the prong is the answer to that. But I stress that you learn how they work and how to fit one, (tight, behind the ears, not so tight that it hurts him but tight enough that it doesn't slip down the neck. Because you're just reinforcing the pulling if you're getting dragged. The dog learns that all it ahs to do to get what it wants is to pull, you resist, and it pulls harder and so on and so forth, until it wins.
If you get a prong you'll simply just need to hold onto the leash and the dog will correct itself. Then you can start engaging with your dog and teaching it that the real enjoyment lies with interacting with you.

|llombardo||I wouldn't take him to a dog park. Would you want him to be subjected to a dog humping him?|

I know you said "don't say it" but I am going to say it. You and your dog need training....period. Since your here looking for help I will assume you do not know how to train your dog therefore you need a trainer to teach you how to train your dog.
For now I would get rid of 200 ft lead as you cannot control your dog if it is 200 ft away from you.
I would suggest a training collar but if you don't know how to use it properly that creates an additional problem.
If you cannot stop your dog from dragging you to other dogs so he can hump them, keep him at home until you can get yourself to a trainer. This WILL lead to a fight eventually as many dogs will not tolerate this behavior from your dog. You are lucky it has not happened yet and that both of you have not been hurt.
You stated people don't like his behavior.......you would get one heck of a tongue lashing from me if your dog dragged you across a park and proceeded to hump my dog.

All he wants to do is play with other dogs!!!
HI, I have a 10 month old Czech import GSD who I love with all my heart, check out the link to see his pedigree. Gucci Ze Zevlova Dvora
Before anybody says, i cant arrange any transport to take him training until December this year as it's to far and my father is on holiday and he is the only one who will drive me.
OK, so When he sees another dog, he will drag me to it until he is close enough to mount and attempt to hump the other dog. No matter how much i try to correct him he does not listen. Also when we enter the park, as soon as he sees another dog he will drag me and do the same thing as above. we play fetch on a 200ft lead because the minute he sees another dog he will drop the ball and sprint to the dog and yet again try to hump, he also will not return to me but when there is no dog around recall is perfect. If i try to restrain him he squeals. other dog owners don't like it when he approaches them and i am finding it frustrating to train him with distractions because all he does is look for other dogs. Ever scince he turned 6 months he thinks he is boss at the park, however he is a saint at home and listens to my every word.
