Why did my dog bite me?

I feel at loss here. I love my dog so much, but I'm having the hardest time teaching him how to walk on a loose leash. Something I've taught so many dogs how to do! Last time, I stayed calm and did really good at not getting frustrated even though he wasn't getting it. I was trying the turn around method, because the standing still method was not working at all. As I turned around and was heading back to the direction to the house for the 5th or so time, he jumped up and started biting at me. Not aggressively, more out of frustration I think. I tried to ignore it and cross my arms, turn my back, but it was hard because I was holding his leash and then it got worse. He's so much stronger than me, because I'm just a small girl and he was able to get his entire mouth over my crossed arms and started to bite. It hurt so much, that I cried. I tried to pry him off me, but he wouldn't stop. Luckily we were close to the door by now and I was able to get him off and grab his collar tightly to shove him inside, but he kept trying to bite me, and tried to get at my face as I was opening the gate. It was really scary and I'm afraid that I wont be able to trust him, because I'm physically no match for him. I couldn't even make an emergency muzzle, because I could not get away from him. Please help, any recommendations. Willing to spend money and time on training. This dog means a lot to my family, especially me.

He's 11 months old, 73lbs, very stubborn, smart, protective, people friendly, think he's becoming DA (don't want to find out lol). Oh and we live in Corona, Southern California.

Hire a trainer to help you. Seems like you are trying in your own and the longer you wait the higher he will be. You also should work on drop and not to mouth you and other commands inside the house so when you go outside you can have better luck. What kind of collar do you walk your boy with? I am sorry you are having so many issues and I am sure it can get better with patience and the right tools.

That dog would get a bullet to the head. In my hands..

I would politely suggest you re-home, or shoot that dog before something more life threatening happens, to you, or another. It's not going to turn off.
If you don't have the ability or means to be trained you are setting yourself up for failure.

Will you risk your life over a dog?

Why did my dog bite me?

Why shoot a puppy exhibiting puppy behavior? It's 7 months old! It's not attacking from the description its mouthing and it's getting frustrated because it doesn't know what's expected of him. Dogs need to be taught whys acceptable and what isn't before you just kill them for not knowing any better.

crap I must have gotten it confused with another, my bad man, sorry I misread. and its all good, I was just trying to understand the reasoning. I know many petite girls who can handle a dog just fine, so I don't even let that bother me. My trainer weight 100lbs soaking wet and she walks her 5 dogs at the same time without an issue. If you know what you are doing it size shouldn't be an issue. But if you cant afford a trainer and don't have the time to work with your dog, I would find a better suited owner for them for all your safety. Some dogs aren't good fits and if you cant control your dog as he grows it will just get worse. Sounds like it may just not be a good mix. Mouthing (which is what you are describing) needs to be stopped early on.

You are being dominated by that dog, and this is only the beginning. Too much dog for you. No pun intended.
The dog will read your fear and take hold one day.
While some may be able to control this dog, you can't.
If you have a pet you fear......GET RID OF IT!

While I do not like to judge a book by its cover, this is a warning for you.
It will only get worse if you keep this dog. Put him down and get another, before tragedy strikes.

Rehome if you happen to know someone well experienced with such animals or bullet to the head.

Otherwise I agree with goemon here

Dogs often mouth when they are frustrated because they aren't getting to go where they want. I can see an 11 month old puppy mouthing because if this. However, it shouldn't be to the point of not letting go all the way to the house and instilling fear. He could start becoming human aggressive which is very scary. If you want to try to keep him, I would definitely consult a professional trainer experienced with dominant dogs. He does not sound full on human aggressive (HA) to me, sounds extremely dominant and a dog that could become HA very quickly.
Please get a hold of a trainer, but in the mean time try not to panic. Do you do any sort of obedience training with him? Like the come, stay, drop it, leave it command?

I just use a flat buckle collar, but he won't budge with force. He tries getting out of it and acts like I'm trying to kill him.
