I would not pull on the leash as you can cause throat damage.i would give a quick pop of the leash to the side.not hard or forceful.just enough to get his attention and a firm verbal correction.

Get to know their body language as they can see,hear and smell something before you see it.which will allow for you to get a verbal correction in like mind it,manners what ever words you use.

As the others have said no patts or treats.
My boy is dominate aggressive and if he starts i will stomp my foot on the ground to get his attention if something gets past me.or i will snap my fingers when giving a command just before he can start and he knows i mean buisness when the snapping of the fingers happen.
