Work on his confidence.

Maryellen wrote:do not coddle him or feel sorry for him. treat him as a dog and slowly work back up to where you were before you went on vacation.. coddling him will just make it worse.. i posted in training Mind Games.. it has clicker links there...
a martingale collar is like a choker collar and a regular collar combined...
