I don't think the smack in the ass is abuse. I had plenty of those myself lol. It just doesn't work with him, I think to get the point across I would have to smack pretty hard.
Yes, sometimes that works but on an already worked up pup you get the exact opposite. Is this the same pushy little shit, or am I remembering it wrong? How old is he now? If it's the same one I remember, did any of the other tips work? Can you post another video? I think he's still very much a juvenile in age and he knows he can get away with it with you. I wouldn't walk him unless he was tired first, because by your description, he's overly excited right out of the door. It also sounds like his bite inhabition still needs some work, go back to scratch if you need to. You may also want to try walking him in your yard only. That way there's no extra stimulus just the two of you working on leash manners. Zak George has a few really good videos, and the kiko pup channel, both are on You Tube. Please let me know if I'm remembering the right pup! Lol, even if it's a different pup my advice stands.

It's a different pup, but simalar behavior. I have gone back to the beginning of basic obidience leash work in the house and yard. We took a 8 week basics class, believe it or not.
Thanks for letting me know it's a different pup. I can believe you took a class and I can tell you from personal experience, you may have to keep going back to basics time & time again. Each spring I have to start over with leash manners, but it's starting to get easier. You have a young pup, so don't feel bad if it takes a few times for the basics to sink in. First it's just being a puppy, then it's because they're adolescents, followed by young adults, you get the idea. Some settle down a little as they get older while others act like dipshits their whole lives! Ha ha, the joys of owning a bull breed.
 
My dog does this only when we're near a highway with a lot of cars. I walk him on a nature path that crosses under an overpass and if we get under it the hair goes up and he's pulling for dear life to get away. It scares him, but at this age he barked and postured for 10 minutes at a snow man my daughter made so I'm hoping he just grows out of it.

He definitely does not like cars, he gets edgy if a car approaches from behind and we're in the road. But typically he's very good on walks, loud noises freak him out.

LOL!!! That sounds cute. Rox was afraid of it when she first came home. She happily ignores it now but for the first 2-3 weeks she was home she would bark and growl at it. She has also done it to street lamps...rolling garbage cans.... leaves... so.... :biggrin: LOL It's like she's never seen this stuff until she got here.
