Step back with heeling side foot and hold your hand out as if opening a door for a lady. After awhile it will click where he is to come to heel.

Yep...I didn't even see this when I posted, spot on! :thumbsup:

Use a place board and make him return to his place, not at heel. Then you slowly can get closer to the board to see if he bumps you
I would guess that would help clean thins up
