I figured I would start a new thread on this instead of hijacking the original.HannaBanana\";p=\"83011 said:Ringer needs to work on his heel with giving you 100% full attention. Walk talk to him, click reward. When you are walking you can click to calm. If he knows the clicker, as soon as you see a dog, click reward. Walk, wait 5 seconds, click reward say good boy, praise whatever but keep clicking every 5 to 10 seconds and reward until the dog passes.Only place I am still having trouble is on walks since Ringer gets so excited to see other dogs still and I haven't found any good info on using a clicker to train an alternate behavior.
He will hopefully realize that the reward (super yummy treat) is WAY better than the dog.
Here is what I consider a perfect heel. This is Renee's boxer pup Anje - I am working my way with Hanna to get her like this - Almost there, Renee has been a big influence and help in my training process. I would be ever so lucky to have dogs trained like her -

I'll try the clicking to break through. I was worried about doing that just because I didn't want to reward the bad behavior (pulling to get to the other dog). I would love to find a clicker trainer in the area so I can learn better than just what I have read.
