Thanks for the great responses! Many new ideas to try and feeling better about life in general. This forum is a serious godsend, and i am happy to be a part of the community!!

Good info too on the long lead, being able to step on then remove foot before she sees whats going on is a great idea.

I have been trying the options idea similar to your sitting at the corner Rain. I have been using it for leash training though. If she keeps close with a loose lease we go forward if she pulls or zags off too much we stop. It can be grueling so i keep it short and sweet. Hopefully this is not too early for exercises and trainings like this! I figure though if she is mostly going to be an on leash dog, she better be good at it!

I know what you mean! I often wondered if my neighbors didn't think I had some weird fetish for watching cars go by as I stood at those corners waiting for Shadow to sit LOL.

Well to update the situation here about my Jindo, Baileymoon. Things are on the up-swing. We have reduced the snapping at hands when receiving rewards by just moving (even) slower and using an open palm, not pinching the treat in our fingers for her.

Recall is still 50/50. Its pretty deflating when doing a recall with all the fun and gusto you can muster and all you get in return is a totally bored look from the puppy. I mean she is SO like a cat its not even funny: totally unimpressed with what we have to offer. What is she, a teenager?! Our trainer suggested doing some restrained recall to get her amped and motivated, seems to be working a tiny bit. Trainer also offered up that though our puppy may love us she doesn't totally feel like she NEEDS us. So we are working on hand feeding ONLY. No dish feeding creates the scenario that if she needs food to survive then she needs to go to the source : ME. (and the hubby too of course!) This has actually worked very well and i can tell she is waaay more attentive to us and keeps tabs on us more frequently which is exactly what we are looking for in this self minded independent breed.

Thanks too everyone, for the great input and encouragement!!! Life just started to look a bit better!
