    Ollie has started pulling towards people in a friendly way. This is a problem because most people round here do not like dogs, so I've always tried to reward him for ignoring other people and walking calmly past them. Unfortunately, this training seems to have relapsed and he's now being too friendly towards people.

    To correct this, should I get him to heel when passing people or get him to sit when people pass? Which do you think would work better?

    i get lexie to sit if it is practical as then the approach is slower and you can work on making them focus on you completely and as the person is within touching distance i treat her to remind her its me she needs to look at not others. i get her to walk close for other distractions like cyclists or kids getting off school bus if she sees that up ahead as she is very interested in what everyone else is up to-(think she reckons she rules the world!)
