Thank you for all your advice, we are going to try again tomorrow. I will try all the suggestions. I never thought about what he might think when I turn around too....perhaps he is thinking see I told you those sounds and funny creatures are scary....I can also wait him out, maybe when he sits I will walk slightly ahead and just keep calling him to me until he gets past that area. With lots of treats, he loves food so I know that will motivate him.
The rest of the time he walks/heels perfectly on loose leash.
