The way the dogs gait in AKC vs SV is entirely different, hence my asking.
Personally, I start with a worn out puppy. When puppy is relatively tired, I leash them up, and I start at a walk with the dog out front. I praise for walking, and slowly increase my speed. If the dog begins gaiting, I praise, if the dog tries to gallop, I apply steady pressure to the lead and slow down my walk until the dog falls into a gait again (no matter how slow the gait is).
As the dog becomes more consistent in gaiting, I pick up my speed and gradually start allowing more lead.
