What I meant with him not getting the toy is to build frustration and even more interest. If he doesn't get the object of his desire after you built all that frustration they work better.

Maybe somebody else can chime in on that
I am still having trouble understanding the "Pace" thing. All I see is a dog walking and trotting next to me. Is there a particular gate that they are suppose to be in? I know he is not prancing like I see so many dogs do. I really have no idea how to get him to do that.
