Thanks for the welcome everyone! I'm feeling better this morning and that maybe things aren't as bad as I imagine.
Lisa, thanks for the tips. When I play with Benji he has to sit for me before I'll throw a toy and "leave it" before it gets thrown again. That's worked pretty well inside with no unfamiliar distractions. When we go for walks, he's pretty good at ignoring people and dogs if I tell him to. I guess the boys and freedom were just too much for him! I like the ideas on training him with the long line. We'll be working on that for sure. Oh, and we're also going to get a fence asap!
Marie, thanks for the great idea of asking the neighbor over to play, if he's willing. We just recently moved here and don't really know them yet. They probably think we're crazy right now and brought Cujo into the neighborhood!
