szariksdad Nice job with the heel, i would say slow it down a bit to make what you are doing more clear to the pup. Also for backend awareness one of the best ways to work on that is get the pup to develop the habit of when sitting beside you it is correct position only. So when if you move even your feet a little to the right it has to move its but around to still be beside you. Nice reward be careful some dogs can develop bad habits if you let them bark for the tug in ob. Okay in protection for them to bark for the tug.

From my understanding, tossing/kicking the toy away from the dog is to build drive and or frustration or you can teach barking.. And usually the dog is on a leash with a prong and or a harness..

Then you'd alternate on letting the dog get the toy or you stealing it away.. And in time you can ask for obedience before sending the dog..
I was holding her back from the you to build her drive and make her want it more. In hopes to make her heel more excited.

I'm working on the rear end awareness thing still (so she is learning to keep her front paws on a target and rotate her rear only, I'm also working on a backwards heel) so I'm not sure we're quite ready for left turns yet

Ohh ok got it (I didn't know) thank you, I need to know things that will confuse the dog- I should have kicked it as she got closer understood

In your case (I'm assuming) it's still a constant pressure on the leash and a slow drag back. The dog is trying for everything it's worth to get back to the decoy. In the video, the dog lunges forward then gets pulled back, dog lunges forward then gets pulled back. It's a mixed signal to the dog. Do you want the dog to be forward or back?
I watched the video which I should have done first so completely different situation, but yes your assumption is correct.
