Ha! I feel for you :) I had exactly the same behaviour emerge with Harley around the same time, only he wanted to say hello to every dog and every human. A strong social drive is great but god does it give a challenge :) My approach was ahem quite unique, for sure I went to town on the premack, however in addition I switched to a hands free bungee leash and when necessary would plant myself in the ground assuming what can only be described as a sumo position :D Gradually he got the idea, sit and attention first, then go say hello(if appropriate). Your situation is quite different though as Talos needs to differentiate work mode form chill mode. I guess his harness and vest can maybe be used as part of a cue for work mode :D Angela www.fun4fido.co.uk
