If you're a block away from someone and he's still listening to you and not acting psycho, great if they're 1/2 block away and he goes off then you know to start at a block distance. That's being over/under threshold in a nutshell
he does this sometimes when near or not usually very good. But when really close
that is when he pulls and I have to pull up on his gentle lead and say no wait for that person to continue, calm him down as he is panting once calm I say good dog and give him lots of loving. Do to his tummy issue I am unable to treat him
