|Qwigley is a saint, he walks well 90% of the time but obviously that won't cut it. The only time he breaks a heel is when he sees another dog. Sometimes he just perks up, keeps looking back at the dog, etc. At his worst, he will start crying, jumping around/getting underfoot and once he kicked up dirt.
He's done this since I found him about a year ago and I've payed attention to it in training with varying amounts of success over the months, but it never completely goes away. (though I have to admit we haven't done INTENSE focus on it)
He also remembers which houses have dogs in the yard(either all the time or only part of the time) and whenever we pass by these yards, he begins to "stand tall", lose focus on me etc.
I really want him to be my SD but I also understand that this impossible to do until he's completely apathetic towards other dogs.
