I just love your descriptions of your poodle and his essential
weirdness. So much like Mitzi! Quite wonderful once you simply except
that what you have there is not so much a dog as, well, a poodle. /lol/
And agree to do things the way the poodle decides they need to be
done... Then it is somehow very easy. /smile/

I worry about it sometimes since when he is really distracted it is usually because of someone else and their dogs. :) Most of my corrections with him, being a sensative poodle, are verbal but when he gets a leash correction he gets a good one since it is usually something he is doing that could be putting us in danger.
> I guess I cheat a bit with Bogart in that I take him outside, generally he pees right away, and then we proceed to walk around the block with him on leash. I keep my harness in my right hand out in front of me to hit any obstacles before I do and bogart does a bit of leash guiding if I'm paying attention. He usually gets if we are in a hurry and will pooh in the next half block allowing me to grab it and head back to the known garbage bin. If he knows it is the weekend he will save his pee and be sure to mark his block or two as we walk. :) He is pretty good about doing number 2 only a block or two into harness walking from home so there are still alot of garbage bins round that we have marked out. Being a poodle he eats at slightly weird times. supperafter we eat and then he eatsts a second meal in the middle of the night. Some would say a poor solution but it means he has food in his system for working. poodles seem to only really eat what, and how much, they want so not like lab owners. He seems to really like the fifth brand of food in 1.5 years which is Acanna lamb, duck and trout. glad he likes it, it certainly costs enough. ;)
