If we are specifically heeling, of course the left side is where Raina walks. If we are on a loose leash walk, she walks beside me, in front of me, or either side as long as she keeps the lead loose. I do step off the path for people coming toward me with dogs or on bicycles because it seems like the safer thing to do for my dog. You never know what level of training other people have with their dogs - you can get a hint by the dog's behavior and the way they are holding the leash, but I mostly try to avoid going dog face to dog face if possible. Bicycles can be scary if they get too close, because the person may suddenly fall or swerve. The dog can be hit or have its foot run over and then you have another issue - fear of bicycles.
