Oh definitely let me know if you're ever over this way! Google "the leash trick." I read about it on this forum & found info on Google search. Basically you hook the leash to the collar as you normally would, run the lead down the side of the dog, put it under the belly, come up on the other side, loop it under itself once. It acts like a choke collar but in the hindquarters/under the belly. At first he crocodile death-rolled like crazy but a LOT of treats instantly fixed that. He caught on in maybe 30 seconds. No lie. When he gets too far ahead (just a tiny bit works) you tug & he falls back easy next to you. After a bit he corrects himself. Who knew it would be THAT easy?!?! And I have to say I love the expression Tiger gives you in those pictures. What a face!
Trade?! Yeesh. I feel your pain. Garrison has a LOT of energy. His focus is so extreme you can't tap into it. It's like you don't even exist. Can be VERY frustrating. We did the ``leash trick'' for his naughty pulling. AND he was a car chaser on walks. (my jaw is clenched at this moment) It worked magic. Prong was next if he didn't straighten out. The creep. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your pictures. I don't post many anymore because home computer is CRAP (censored) and I use my daughter's IPad. I'm limited to what I can do. Too bad we weren't closer. Would really enjoy being around somebody who really ``gets it.'' Isn't it funny how ``innocent'' those gorgeous guys look in pictures? Hmmmmm. Ain't foolin' me.
