My Bouv is almost 9 years old and still wants to chase bikes and joggers. I have always used positive reinforcement but think that this is part of the problem.

If only using positive reinforcemnt, what do you do when the dog goes to bite someone in the calf? My other doggie friends shout and reprimand their dogs by pulling at their ears or hurting them in some way. I never shout at or hurt my dog - yet no reaction other than trying to call the dog back and start all over again with rewarding her for not chasing bikes etc simply does not work long term.
We live in a city which has a large population of rigourously self righteous to militant bike riders who also claim their right to rip through dog parks and off leasch areas. So it is quite a challenge.
