|There certainly ARE things you can do to help Duke. Are you committed to keeping and helping him?
First, vet check. be sure to have a CBC, SNAP and Thyroid test done.
Second, there are some resources you can access right now to start to understand what is happening with Duke.
Former Dogster Debbie Jacobs has a site here:
Lots of information there and she has an e-book
is also a good starting point. Scaredy Dog is one of my dog training go-to books and the latest DVD, On the Road to Reality is full of exercises. I know I am more of a visual and tactile learner myself.
You may want to look into a no-pull harness like the Freedom or the SENSE-ation. Neither of these will teach Duke to walk nicely on a leash, but they will manage the behavior and give you the control you need while you are teaching him to walk nicely on a leash.
