Default Rear foot targeting help

Okay, I think Logan's just...really thick about this. I have been trying and trying to get Logan to do rear-foot targeting and he just doesn't get it. I click for ANY hind foot movement, but he almost always moves either a front leg or his head at the same time...so he assumes I'm clicking for the front leg/head movement. If I click for back leg movement ONLY he gets frustrated and start trying stuff that has worked in the past. This has been going on for a while, but I have stopped training the last few weeks because it's frustrating for both of us. He's in desperate need of rear end awareness. Is there a better way of going about doing this? Or some exercise(s) we can do to sort of "prime" him for rear-end-learning? It's like his back end belongs to a completely different dog. Gavroche is slow-going, too, but NOT LIKE THIS! Gavroche is actually making progress.
