That is great that he is walking good. I too use a choke chain when I walk my kids. Their's is not chain it's material. Softer on the neck. We used that in obedience class too. Connie, good for Bogie that he is no longer a sniffer when he walks. I never could break Stickers of that habit. She sniffs the entire way!! That's okay with me. She is a scent hound after all.!!

One word of caution: I NEVER leave choke chains on my kids if they are not on leash. It is too easy for them to get caught on something and choke. I had a very close call with my German Shepherd several years ago. His bone shaped ID tag got caught between the wooden slates on the deck outside. He literally could not move his head. I had to cut the chain off his neck. Then I invested in the Break Away Collar, although now it's been renamed the Chinook collar after the inventor's dog who tragically strangled in it's choke collar. Sorry, if I'm preaching but we love our hounds and I just wanted to post the warning.

I hope you enjoy walking many more miles with your boy!!
