Shooting off the wrong foot is good for shooting while in stride. For his strong foot does he have trouble balancing while transfering his weight from the back to the front foot? If so try practicing in your garage in inline skates. If no balance issues just have him put all his weight on the back leg and then as he sweeps the puck drive off that back foot and land of the front foot. Do it slow initially to get it down. May help to over emphasize by lifting the front foot slightly in the start position, kind of like how a batter lifts that foot and then steps into it. Here's a good clip of an 8 yr old doing one, may relate better to it if he is similar age.
