We have been having the same problem with Bogey. but we are making progress. I could not get him past the next door neighbors house, but with coaxing and LOTS of patience, he goes a little farther each time. Yesterday was a major breakthrough- he walked halfway around our circle! We'll keep it up each day and hope for the best! What worked best for us is if I got ahead of him, squatted down and called him with a treat! Took forever to walk 3 houses, but it worked. Good luck!!
