    with Buster's leash manners.
    Dekka, Boston Banker and Adojrts spring to mind first, but thankyou to everyone that offered advice/help.

    I know we arn't out of the woods yet but I still can't believe the change in just a few weeks of varied training. I eventually started getting real results when I mixed allthe advice together and used the bits that work best for Buster.

    I just got home from another lovley stroll with my dog, something thats never happened before.

    The thing I noticed particulary about this walk? Buster's tail. Whenever we go walking its strapped flat against his but, if it was long enough I could imagine it maybe being between his legs.

    Today he was strutting around, tail straight out. Sniffing, peeing and actually enjoying himself!

    I can run along and slow down to a very slow walk and he adjusts himself.

    The best results I got before all this was me powerwalking along, arm outstretched thinking "see, he doesn't pull" while I'm almost breaking into a run so the leash stays loose.

    So thankyou, I have one more thing I love about my little man now, one more reason to keep trying and one step closer to overcoming his biggest issue.

    Thankyou thankyou thankyou. I just can't believe the change in the attitude of this little guy.
