from past posts I'm getting he was 6 months old on the 5th.
How much exercise is he getting? I am talking running around exercise? I would burn off some of that energy before you take him for a walk and then walk him.
What kind of collar are you using? I know prongs are illegal over there (I think), how about a martingale?
I also read in one of your past posts Kai has been pooing in the house? it sounds like he needs more OUTSIDE time, and more exercise ..
When I have a yanking dog, I usually do this, put the dog in the position you want, start to walk, if he pulls, immediately change directions, SAY NOTHING< change directions, if he pulls again, CHANGE DIRECTIONS,,when the dog is IN the position you want, PRAISE & TREAT, otherwise say nothing..
Yes you might get dizzy from changing directions, you want to work on this with NO distractions, later lead up to distractions.
Work on it a few times a day, short sequences, when he doesn't pull reward/treat, and always end on a positive note
