I watched the earlier video of Gnash tracking too, and I think you were creeping on him. This spatial pressure can rush the dog a bit IMHO. He handles it really well, and it may not have effected him at all. Just something I noticed.
How does he do if you back off on the line and give him some space?
When a dog saves the life of a man, it becomes clear that partnership knows no bounds.
