T-Pines, to answer your question, he has figured out where the door is so he ran over to the door. He waits for me to go first almost all the time and so we just walked inside. We did just take about a ten minute walk, off lead, around the yard and he followed me the whole way around. He follows me around great with the lead on but with him dragging it. It seems he doesn't like the pressure of the lead when I try to get him to follow me. Like I said, admittedly I was forcing him, which now I understand was wrong. We will start over and let him drag the lead around a couple days and then try letting him lead a little bit and then once he is comfortable with that I will try to lead again. I just hope he will let me amend my mistake without any residual effects from today's botched lesson.
