Bongo was the same just patience and coaxing and treats eventually we were able to take the treat way and just coax. What I really found worked with Bongo was a gentle tug and a lot of "good boy, good bongo". If i pulled to hard or had a harsh voice he would put on the breaks. Man when he did that it didn't matter if he was on gravel or flaming hot coals he would not get up not matter if i dragged him. He would do this on the road when we were crossing and I would have to pick him up it was so bad. Now he's awesome after all the patience and work..
