What about shaping what you want with his gaiting? C/T when his head is up. Make keeping his head up HUGELY rewarding? (without trying to force him too, and causing tension, which will change his posture and movement)

Unfortunately I didn't have time. Jack's breeder (ESetters10) said that her aunt may have gotten some pics, but I haven't seen any yet.

I think that may be what I am trying to do. I am tying to make the lead loose, but not so loose that I loose control, when he has his head up. And, of course, I treat and praise when his head is up.

We are also working on a "No sniff" command for when he has his show lead on. That way he'll learn that the show lead means he can't sniff the ground no matter how interesting something smells. This part will take awhile but we'll get it.

Thanks for the help!!

Try the clicker, or a new word sound, that is more specific than just praise. Ie with the clicker you could click for the EXACT head carriage you want.

Watch that what ever you do doesnt make him look at you all the time while gaiting. This can throw off a front.

That is also part of my problem. I have learned that carrying bait in my hand while moving is not a good thing. Bait in the mouth makes it more accessible with out him seeing it. I have no problems putting it in my mouth as long as it doesn't taste bad.

I have tried the clicker, but I don't think I am coordinated to enough to figure out when exactly to click and then being able to treat right away. I am very clumsy when it comes to clicker training.
