//"I never thought of that! I should try keeping him calm with passing dogs on our walks. "// oh, so you didn't watch either one of the videos then???? ohhhh...... maybe you much prefer reading it, than watching how to do it in video form, (some ppl prefer words, some ppl prefer films) but, that was first thing i posted to your question, " //"So my question is, how to get Remi to not immediately bark at when he sees other dogs?"// were two, short quickie tutorials on how to keep your dog calm when he sees other dogs. I figured you DID WATCH them. lol. and the rest of it was on finding puppy-friendly dogs for Remi to have a playdate with, so Remi could finally experience actually friendly dogs. It's two different things, imo, setting up appropriate playdates, and learning how to teach your dog how to be calm when he passes dogs. but like i said, there ARE lots of ways to teach Remi to be calm when he sees dogs, lots of methods.
