|cindy_s||My dog tends to guard the helper very closely. So, for the side transport I will ask the helper to take one step back if she is too close. That way I can cleanly heel away.|

|robk||It seams to me that Wildo is trying to figure out how to win the Nationals before he ever even gets his first Schutzhund dog! (Just picking at you Wildo! I love how analytical you are! )|

I'm in the process of changing to this way also over this winter....After the long bite my dog is so high that the last 3 champioships I lost the "V" when he got out in front again or setup in basic next to the helper instead of with me. So now I will squeeze him betwen me and the helper and hope that works...LOL

I also saw some that would do the same thing in theory, but backwards. The handler would take a step backwards but turn into the dog (handler rotates 90 degrees counterclockwise). The dog would follow of course. Then the handler walked between the dog and helper, but with this method there was no confusion on the dog. It looked pretty good as well.
And of course the many videos I watched where the dog didn't seem to have any issue with the handler passing between the two looked just fine as well. ha!

|lhczth||I actually pivot right and ask Deja to go with me away from the helper. This made more sense to her than my stepping between her and the bad guy. Nothing to do with your question, but thought I would post anyhow.|
