He likes to run out front ay? Might have wolf blood and maybe his genes made him an alpha male. Our last Shepherd was half coyote, so he always dug dens & ate chickens. (and sandals, much to better half's dismay) That stuff is hard to train out of them as it is for us to change religions.

My buddy out west (Dog Mike at Calgrove Kennels)is a dog trainer (yep, and he's an alpha male - heh heh) - or rather he trains owners, and the dogs become obedient in the process. According to him, the whole trick is same as kids - consistency. If you ALWAYS get up and ALWAYS come over there and get loud and make their life miserable at the count of three, the kids will quickly start scrambling on 2, right? As soon as he behaves on-leash, make the leash a bit longer. Pretty soon you can drag the leash then swap it for hand signals. And the less syllables the better - they really aren't that good at big words, but i've seen them master about 60 little ones. :)
