Re: Turns and finishes for ob. routine ....
Argos does behind the back for both. Anka flips on both.
I think sometimes the structure of the dog comes into play and also how you train the heel position. A long big dog will have a harder time swinging his butt around than a smaller quick dog...but of course it can be done. Once Anka learned the flip it was very natural for her to pivot on the turn. Argos was taught to finish around the back, so he seemed to naturally go that way to get back into position.
I always trained it off leash, so I never really trouble with switching hands. (I also found that if I ran away after I made the left turn, my dog had to run to catch me and be in position again, and the turns got tighter as a result at normal speed)
