I have a ten month old alaskan malamute. The previous owner didn't take care of him or do any training. So for the past 6 months I have worked with him and things have gone well until now. The past few months my dog was attacked numerous times by my neighbors dogs while him and I were out walking. So now I feel that he has become leash aggressive, because he associates our walks and the leash with fear it might happen.
Where I live its hard to get a trainer to come out here because I live in the middle of no where. I tried to distract him on our walks. I know treating in walks inst the best idea, but when I would see him act out I would say a command an have him follow through an treat him. It worked at first but then he just couldn't stop biting me. He has manage to leave multiple bruises on me and basically scare me to death sometimes. I was suggested to get a vibrating collar, but I really have no clue about those and rather not unless I get a way better knowledge about the product. Does anyone have tips that could help. Thanks
