Good to hear you are doing so well!
Sorry your pup surprised and embarrassed you at the store, though not all that surprising that it happened. Dogs will mark where others have 'gone before', it is a natural behavior, sometimes they just can't resist the 'invitation'! I know it can happen pretty fast!
No, neutering does not 'cause' bad behavior.

Just wanted to post back to say that Walnut is completely "cured" of fixating.

We also just finished foundations class, and can (almost always) walk passed other dogs without much trouble. In fact, I usually just say "let's go" and he turns his head forward and continues to walk in heel position.

Thanks for the help.

Great news! It is so nice to read that all your hard work is paying off. I do want to say that he is still young yet so, it is important to keep a watch on this that at some point he doesn't go backwards a little in his training. For some reason at different points on the way to maturity some of these guys have some kind of brain blimp.

solinvictus, you're absolutely right. We experienced this first hand.
I've started to leave the house ensuring the clicker and treats are always with me again. We'll stay on top of it this time
