    To anyone who might be interested, we are doing so much better! Last night we took a 15 minute walk around our street with no issues, and this morning and last night about 25 minutes with one bite each, both of which quickly and easily corrected. And a Rrrrruf! at a bucket haha, that was greatly concerning to him. :p

    It is such a huge relief. His listening on walks has been great too, it's so wonderful that he will turn and look for my instruction when I stop or tell him to wait.

    Of course the bad behavior seems to have been redirected to the couch. That's our new daily battle.

    Thanks to everyone who chimed in with help or encouragement!

    Thanks! Last night was the longest walk we had done for a LONG time. At home anyway, if he had new surroundings we could go longer. But we worked up to this and I plan to keep it going. Finally put it all together that you walk BEFORE they eat, that way they've got a reason to keep moving!

    finding what works and keeping the routine/schedule is key to these bundles of joy

    Thanks! It's so good to see it getting better. Still having some little battles for dominance but we'll get through it.
