My poor lab hasn't has a walk in ages because he is so absolutely HORRIBLE on a leash. The last time I walked him I was in flip flops and when we walked past another house with dogs he lunged to the fence, knocked over the stroller with the kids in it and mauled my foot with his toes by jumping around as I tried to drag him away, I was dripping blood all over the sidewalk as we walked home.
I stopped walking him because I am not strong enough to control him. DH has been working so much he can't take him right now either, AND since then the two houses on our corner had people move in who each have two dogs that are outside all the time, so it is impossible to take him on a walk that doesn't involve passing other dogs.
I can't even TOUCH his leash without him going beserk.
Unfortunately I'm about to have a baby and DH's work schedule won't be calming down until January, so working with the dog is getting pushed WAAAAAAY to the bottom of the priority list and he's acting out because of it, and then he ends up getting put outside cause I just can't handle the doggie attitude.....ugh.
I know I should re-home him, but I really don't want to, I just want him not to be a stinker. If I could walk him with the leash in one hand, and pulling the kids in the wagon with the other hand I feel like so many of his other issues would go away, cause I could get out with him every day, but I don't even know where to start.
