How is everyone?

Long time, quiet forum!
Things are going well here, Harry is finally responding to training after 4 months of hard work.
Hired a great trainer, but took Harry a long while to settle into the training, now he is coming along quite well. Big difference from a month ago even!
Puppies are hell to raise, but I am certainly enjoying him now and not tearing my hair out while chugging wine!
15 1/2 months now!

Great news. What's working?
Remote collar paired with a starmark pro collar!.
Remote for off leash, starmark pro rather than the prong.
Its s plastic version of a prong, but doesn't cause him to be defensive.
Still learning, but the aggressive reactions are slowing down!
That's awesome. Have you been able to check on the caloric content of the food?
Good to hear that you are getting somewhere! I sort of found all of a sudden it clicked and which ever pup it was at the time started to "be trained". Our very first, Shep, was by far the easiest but then I was 18 and had no children and spent all day with him whislt got towards the end of first pregnancy - you never saw such a good "child minder"-I got a nudge when was baby's feed time just before the yelling started and he would not let anyone apart from husband and myself near to baby until we said it was ok but no one could take baby out of the house.xx
He still has selective hearingin the house,and is leash reactive with corrections or high distractions, but from what he was before, he is 70% better.
Structure was the key, no free roaming right now. Plenty of exercise and obedience, and crating.
He is young, so plenty of time to keep on. I am just happy he is not lunging at me lately, no bruises or snapping!
It's been a long road, but showing progress.
Ron, I cut back the food , too many mixed bags to check calories, I am going by body feel now.
He isn't thin, but he isn't weighty either.
