to "heal" to the right?

I dont' really want her to heal but just move to my right side. In agility she hates being on my right so I thought I would teach her to "Right" but she keeps going around me to a Heal.

Do I block my left side so she can't complete what she's trying to do?

btw...I lost my clicker!

Re: to "heal" to the right?

I wouldn't necessarily block your left, I would just put her on leash, and work on switching sides while walking briskly))

Hopefully I can explain this right,,what we do when working both sides,,start out on your left if that's where shes comfy, walk briskly and YOU turn INTO her and about face, she's going to end up on your right,,walk briskly, again turn into her and about face, she'll be on your left. to go to off leash, drop the leash and work it that way...agility is kinda like dancing, so keep the pace up, and keep changing sides and moving...

I think for her to 'move' to your right side, your going to have to back up, start on leash, and work it that way, vs offleash to begin with..make sense?? ))

Re: to "heal" to the right?

yes it does. I had her on a leash but was just trying to get her to heal on my right, telling her Right, but she kept trying to go around my back to the left in a Finish and she was so confused on what I wanted her to do. I think what you say will work better for her.

Thanks!!

Re: to "heal" to the right?

my sister had this problem with her lab,,she was die hard obedience until she went to agility, she ended up never being able to run that darn dog on her right, but then again, she never tried to retrain it either..it's definatly 'hard' to work especially when the dog has always been on the left..)

sometimes I think it's harder for "us" cause it feels weird to both us and the dog..

have fun, and shame on you for losing your clicker )))))

Re: to "heal" to the right?

I had the same issue with Kayla. We had gone through rally and Novice obedience heeling for so long that being on the right just wasn't happening. I use "side" for having her walking to my right. Trying to save "Right" and "Left" for turning directions when she is (supposed to be) ahead on the agility course or in a tight turn.

Started right off working both sides with Lancer.

Re: to "heal" to the right?

oh I like that! I'll use side with her from now on. It was so much easier for her moving like that. Thanks Diane!! It also helps to have a dog with crazy ball drive!!

Re: to "heal" to the right?

Hopefully MRL will weigh in on this with a super link!
We did groundwork to teach the dog to move on both sides...hard for me to explain...looking for a link....

I learned the Switch command last weekend. I need to work on Out, switch and side (was Right) this week.

Re: to "heal" to the right?

I don't have a verbal command for it...it's more a body language thing.
