She doesn't hold her front paws down. Her whole body does move. She actually moves over out of my way. I tried using a short leash so she doesn't walk away or move but ends up moving. I wait to see if she can figure it out but she ends up barking. How would you suggest to watch my leg?

Mine does awesome on heeling and staying next to me on walks. when she gets ahead of me, she actually looks back and stops!

Thanks boomer11! I'm working back on basics and trying to use an elevated object (phone book, box, cardboard, wood) and she won't stay. I do this repeatedly in short sessions and she hasn't kept her front paws on yet instead she would bark to not go on (who knows why). Currently using treats to lure her on and off leash. I'm now skipping the night meal to see if that will help her work harder for her treats.

boomer11 Go back to foundation work. Lure the dog onto an elevated object like a book and work on the correct position. Too many don't do foundation work and just start walking straight.

Every time the dog isn't doing it correctly and you're moving forward, the harder it will be to reverse

I'm having a hard time getting my 8 month old to heel right right next to me against my leg. There's always at least an inch between us. Can you guys share some of your training techniques on what works with your dog?
