Help to train 2 years old German shepherd

Hello everyone. I'm 18 years old owner of German shepherd since she was 2 months old.Since day one I'm trying to teach her to not to push on a leash but it doesn't work for almost 2 years she constantly push. I live in Croatia in area without dog trainers. My main objective is to make her stop pulling on a leash for now. Also she is becoming now w little agressive towards smaller dogs. Can anyone help me? Btw i tried videos on YouTube, but it only works with food... She knows how to heel also, but as I said it works only with food. Any help would be great 😃👍

Teaching a dog to make eye contact and to offer it ('check in' ) and highly rewarding it, firstly in a quiet, non-distracting environment, and that as they are able to manage it, out in the real world, can go a long, long ways to eliminating leash pulling and focusing on distractions (such as other dogs). Ultimately we want our dogs to choose to automatically 'check in' frequently with us especially when we are out and about with them.
