I started the nilf,i have made him walk w/us instead of in front. I have actually been walking him 2-3x a day(just getting him out as much as possible)I have been keeping him off the bed. He has been getting tons of rewards,along w/firm training sessions(about 15minutes a day). I have seen a huge difference in just a few days. We were walking this morning and nothing(i mean nothing)bothered this dog. We walked by a guy walking and smokey didnt even look twice at him. We walked by a fence w/ppl all in and smokey just looked wagged his tail and that was it. I did however tell a lady that she couldnt pet him. I really hope this is the way to go. The results have been almost instant.
