Best collar or harness to prevent pulling

Hi everyone! I've always wanted a pit because they are so sweet and loyal. I adopted a 1 year old neutered male from the shelter yesterday. I've never had a dog this strong and am having trouble controlling him on walks....he pulls hard. I'm currently using a chain choker collar, but it doesn't help. He does stop when I stop which is great, but I need to be able to control him on walks to keep him and me safe. Any suggestions?

Another question...he was neutered two days ago, but tries to mate with my spayed Jack Russell (who snaps and growls when he tries). I nudge his neck and tell him no then distract his attention with his ball (a now flat basketball lol). I hope I'm not encouraging his behavior by doing so....maybe I'll just continue with the nudge and firm no.

Thanks for reading....please help��

If I were you, I'd ditch the choke chain.

It really depends on the dog, but I've used a prong collar on my dog and it worked like a charm. Just make sure it's properly fitted.

Other members of this forum have used Gentle Leaders and gotten good results, so that could also be a viable option.

If you're trying to discourage pulling, don't get a harness. There's a reason harnesses are used on sled dogs and weight pull dogs. A harness actually encourages pulling.

Go to a good obedience class - the instructor should be able to help you properly fit and use a prong collar (it's REALLY easy to be abusive with one). An obedience class will also help you learn to train your dog to walk nicely on lead, teach him to focus on you, and help him learn some self-control. Every dog I've had has, at the very least, gone to basic obedience classes.

There are no-pull harnesses - they have a ring in the front so when the dog pulls, he winds up turning himself sideways or facing you.
