|Hey there,my dog has the same problems (except she only weighs 50 lbs) - but have ever watched the show Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer?? I've only seen a few shows,but his method is amazing!!! My dog used to pull me down the road even with a halti and everything,and it got worse when she saw a person or dog,but now I walk with her at my side,even if another dog is around!
I use a correction collar(choke chain),but any "choke chain",prong collar,or even just your leash will work.The collar generally sits on the base of a dogs neck,which is also the strongest part of their neck.Move the collar up so that it is just behind the ears and under the jawbone - keep the leash short,so you have alot of control- everytime your dog does something you don't want him to,you just tug on the leash and say NO - it seems like it wouldn't work with a 100lbs dog,but seriously give it a try! Because the collar is now sitting on the weakest point of the dogs neck,he will react differently than if it was at the base of his neck.It's crazy how well it worked on my dog - also, make sure you aren't getting worked up when he is bad - that's something that makes them worse,if you are getting worked up he isn't going to settle down! You have to be calm and assertive with him!
Check out www.dogpsychologycenter.com or watch his shows! I learned everything from him and it definatly works if done correctly!
