JMO...What is the problem with the speed? Is he over running the check area by too much, out running the rest of the pack??? If you want to keep him AND the speed in the long run, maybe try putting some weight on him and soloing him as much as possible. The weight will take a step or 2 off his speed and keep him in the check area a little longer. Then when he learns to work the check area from the inside out and gets smarter you can start taking the weight back off. Sounds like he is relatively young so this may help out and make a nice dog out of him. But if he is just outrunning your pack, maybe you should trade. Those few months age difference aren't going to hurt you any.
