Thanks for all the advice everybody! I'm feeling much better about our progress. This AM on our walk I went back to letting him have half of the walk to sniff and just have fun since walks have really never been a problem for us.
As for boot camp training, I've decided to be drill like only when necessary for instance when he has his "sudden deaf" episodes or jumping to nip at my arm when he doesn't get his way ect.
We are going to continue our hourly 10 minutes training exercises but I am keeping them fun and playful so he enjoys the time while reinforcing the commands.
I called one of the neighbors this AM about getting all the dogs together again, they've been put on hold until after the holidays, but we're going to get as many together as possible because I think since I know all these dogs it will be a better way to let Bentley play with dogs and learn manners at the same time, these dogs are good about policing themselves and don't stand for rude behavior so that's probably the best way for Bentley to learn he can't bully all dogs like he does Ky and the puppies at class.
Wed at graduation I'm going to speak to our trainer about more classes but make it known that I want a class where they're not let off leash to chew on each other, if she doesn't have a class like that we will look elsewhere.
I think it's going to be ok
Bentley is different then all the adult dogs I've had, maybe because he's a puppy, maybe he's strong willed but after he learns something is not allowed he will continue to see if he can get away with doing it over & over.
I want him to learn but I want him to remain my Broadway Bentley too ♥
