I think I may have a new suggestion, amazing, what with all the good ones you already have above. Do you feed kibble? We were told this at my first obedience class with my first puppy. I have think it was a Dr. Stanley Coren TV show too. The trick is to feed pup a few kibbles at a time throughout the walk. While walking you would give a kibble while puppy is in about the correct position. You try to do this on the go, just by dropping your hands down to her mouth and keep walking. You are lucky it is a large breed, this is much harder to do with the wee ones. Don't do it at correction time - it is to be associated with proper walking, not the correction. You just do it once in a while and try not to make a pattern. By deducting the kibble from the regular meal you are not overfeeding.
