I know I had a terrible pulling problem when I first got my Chloe.and then he simply goes back to doing whatever and yanking my butt all over the place.
If he pulls and you follow him even one step, then he has won and figures that pulling works to get him where he wants to go.
Corrections don't help if you keep walking.
I can only tell you what worked for me, and that was to make a VERY abrupt and rapid and forceful"about face" and swiftly walk away every time my dog pulled. She did get a jar and a correction this way, but really didn't associate it with me, since when she was forced to turn and follow me, all I was doing was walking away - not yelling, or visibly correcting her.
For this I used a part chain Martingale collar. It did take a bit of time and many "about faces" but now I have a dog who does not pull!
