I don't know what to do....

I use a prong on ryder, ( the prong appears to be to tight cause there is no room for the pop, it just stays tight, but if i put another link in it is too big.)because he is dog aggressive and suprisingly we are able to keep him under control with this...However he does not like for my girls to be ahead of him and he whines and barks and will take the lead to the full extent and not bother him...We have started spaying him with water when he whines and cries and that works marvelous, but i can' tget him to quit pulling, its not as bad on the prong but i would like to be able to walk him and have a loose leash... I would really like for ryder to walk by my side not in front. Any suggestions?
Now with snoop he pulls like crazy, omg i can't even believe how bad he is...At the moment i am using a choke collar but need to get him out of it because he does pulll until he is gagging and coughing....Now i have started spraying him with water when he pulls,and then i say easy and he is fine for a little bit but like ryder i would love it if he would walk by my side. and we had a very nice walk yesterday, but he has already figured out to dodge the water, so what should i do there....


Love all my kids 2 and 4 legged.

You need to go up a link. I left Jax's tag collar on to stop the prong from sliding down.

I think a lot of dogs are like that when someone gets ahead of them.
Have you tried turning around or standing still before even thinking of using the prong?
The idea is that you let him calm down before you continue on the walk.

Praise and treat when he walks next to you?
