Presa/American Bulldog mix

I recently adopted this mix from a woman, I wasn't aware of his exact breed until today and I know both breeds need extra socialization and care to be calm and happy so I need some tips!

If anyone out there has either of these breeds or a similar mix, and can help me with specific training practices that you used and if you sought out a trainer's help?

He's 11months old and does get very reactive on leash, but isn't uncontrollable. I can get him to sit, but he makes a lot of noise.

The woman I got him from said he hasn't gotten any exercise for at least the last three months so I'm hoping that he will calm down with some regular exercise, but what other things can I do to calm him down on leash?

Thanks for your help!!
