We met with a trainer who'd worked with him as a puppy, practiced some obedience things, especially doing touch where you back up and he comes to face you and sits for a touch and treat. It's worked REALLY well. He was easier to handle at agility, great at herding, and hasn't had any incidents on street. I did take a detour when I saw a barking white and fluffy approaching. The touch thing even worked with a squirrel chattering! Treating with pieces of cheese dogs. Happy to report progress.
