Not much a fan of headcollars and gimmicks myself. If a dog isn't doing what I want then I try and figure out what I'm doing wrong!

At five months, losing focus is not a big surprise, that's why your training him. But If you need that "crap" to walk him then that's probably, your first step in the new dog process,ditching it. I gave "my" opinion on "gizmos" so you can infer from that what "I" think of your trainer.

Notice on the video I posted..no gimmicks for the walking and treats not toys were used. Some dogs will work for toys some won't. Yours seems to indicated he won't? Why are you still using it?
.
Your "thinking" about what you're doing and that's the most important step! Give this a thought also.
