By the way - he's still responding really well to home cooked liver and his focus is 10x better! I'm able to walk passed other dogs, people, bikes, etc in daytime and nighttime with no issues. There is zero pausing, freezing, or anything.

Occasionally something might grab his attention for for 8-10 seconds, which I think is acceptable. Plus, if I say this name, or "let's go", he quickly "releases" focus from whatever has got his attention (usually something I can't see...kind of creepy), and carries on walking. It's those times where I give a nice size piece of liver.

Overall, he's doing so much better.[/QUOTE]

I am thrilled for you!! So glad you found something that 'works' for him, it makes all the difference. Sounds like everyday is a good day and getting better!! All your hard work, and Walnut's, will pay off big time down the road!
