obedience or shutzhund competition heeling
Why does the desired position seem to be the dog wrapped around the front looking at your face?
I guess it looks unnatural to me.
When I want to walk a dog, leash or no leash, I would like him at my side, staying out of the way of my feet, and aware of my changes of direction and speed, but not necessarily getting a neck strain looking up into my face.
Anyone have a good explanation for this? I noticed in some photos of Heidi, that she does this at least some of the time? In her case anyway, this is not a treat thing because I do not train heeling with treats.
