Our bernertalk is almost 7 months old now. I am frustrated by leash walking although she does pretty well 80 percent of the time. She pulls really hard. I'm pretty big and have a hard time keeping her back. The biggest frustration is that she will take off when she sees another dog, cat, person, squirrel, etc. it's disappointing when my 8 and 11 year old kids can't walk the dog. We have tried the gentle leader and she is totally resistant after weeks of trying, we use a regular leash now. I have been wanting to try the no pull harness that tightens across the chest but but wife feels she's doing pretty well on the regular leash. She has not had any obedience training of any kind. I have to say that other than the crazies she gets from time to time, she is pretty well behaved and can do basics commands. Should we consider obedience school? Is it too late for that? Should we try a new lease and harness? Are we expecting too much too soon? I want the family to be able to enjoy our walks without the worry of her pulling our arms out of joint. Any suggestions?
