    Thank you Dave. Good to hear from you.

    Mom is the breeders strike dog and dad is his catch dog. Not sure how they compare to other hog dogs but they are a jack of all trades (breeder also produced some that retrieve birds and hunt bear or cougar).

    That info was helpful. My play sessions now are more structured. I won’t toss the flirt pole or toy until he gives me eye contact, and he’s doing well with that.

    When I have him chase the flirt pole I do keep it just out of his reach so he has to turn on his afterburners to get it. Once he gets it, I will pet him to let him know I won’t always take it from him or I will help him set the bite (but he already bites fairly deep as a puppy). I’ll occasionally have him out with food and start the game again.

    His impulse control is gradually improving but he definitely looks at you like “ok what next”.

    So in short, would this describe what is happening when the correction is applied in different ways?

    Hey Allie,

    Lots of good suggestions. I like the vomeronasal stimulation idea.

    We do have a large pen in the living room but currently it’s being used by the one dog that doesn’t get along with him. In the meantime, I am working to acclimate him to an ex-pen with toys, so hopefully he will get to a point where he can use that.

    Yeah, I saw those parts of the article and was thinking those could backfire, but the rest had pretty good information.

    One thing that he doesn’t fit in the description is the wandering (at least for now). He’s constantly behind my legs on either side, and I saw some of the breeders adults following in a similar manner. Teaching a traditional heel may be easy with him.

    Hi Mike!

    I’ll check the 5.0 video out.

    I’ll look into indoor brain games after the 4 hour stretch.
