Eye contact

So on our walks i am trying to get Enzo to give me more eye contact, to keep him from focusing on other dogs. Everytime he looks at me i C&T. I have been doing this for a few days now and i have staretd to bump up the amount of time before i C&T so he has to hold the eye contact longer before he gets the treat.

The only thing is.. I am having two thoughts avout this..

1. Will he only give me eye contact so he can get a treat

and

2. Will he learn to give me eye contact when there are other distractions around, i.e. dogs?
