And they will never forget this one experience.
The dog DID call off though. OP did not lose sight of the dog, correct? He just didn't call off as fast as you wanted him to.

I agree cookies won't trump a chase with most dogs. But it never hurts to make yourself more rewarding or get the dog to take rewards, even just to lessen the stress of learning e collar if you get to that
