Maverick (A Bullmastiff x retriver) HELP ! walking issues!

I have a 12 month old Bull Mastiff X Retriever named Maverick and he is very hypo even when I do walk him he gets easily distracted around other dogs and loves people what is the best way to get him to calm down when we go for walkies?

I like & use a gentle leader with a lot of dogs. It is easy & most dogs "go with the flow" and accept it. Some dogs will thrash & no matter what you do won't accept it, that is usually not the case though.

If your dog won't accept a gentle leader you can use a gentle leader EASY WALK harness, where the leash clips to the chest area and allows for more control a traditional harness will promote pulling.

Read up on NILF .... I love this concept.
