Re: How to train lateral movement?
In rally advanced there is a sign where you stop, the dog sits. You take a step to the right and the dog goes with you and sits in the heel position.
I use SLIDE for this.
I practice when we are in class waiting for the others to finish something one by one, and the whole line of us is moving along, so there is room at the end for the dog that completes.
I say SLIDE, tap my leg while I move over. I praise for the best sits in the heel position.
Not sure about the front one though.
