Question Backwards heeling?

Can someone tell me what the Schutzhund exercise is called where the dog switches sides and heels facing behind the handler? Also where can I find a description of this exercise?

French Ring Sport

"Defense of Handler: handler, dog and decoy approach each other and have a short conversation, then continue walking. the decoy turns around and comes up behind the handler, and as soon as the decoy "attacks" (obvious "hit" on handler) the handler, the dog bites the decoy. After the dog is told to out, he guards the decoy until recalled. the dog must stay with the handler until the attack, most dogs are taught to heel facing backwards for this exercise"
French Ring Sport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Here's one video:

Or another. I love how the dog is so waggy in this one.

This isn't a SchH exercise, its a Ringsport exercise. There's no backwards heeling in SchH.

Oh ok thanks! That explains why I wasn't able to find it on Schutzhund sites.

Don't know whether it is my impression or not but I have seen the backwards heeling more in Belgian Ring than French Ring videos Although I was always under the impression that backwards heeling was the preferred way of doing it so that the dog can always see the decoy.

Many people train this first with obedience, with no decoy, just as a conventional heel. Some people train it from the get-go as strictly a bitework exercise. Preference of the handler/decoy taking into consideration the handler and dog's ability and training style.

I was mainly thinking of doing first with out the bitework since it doesn't translate to IPO. I just wanted to be able to do it as an additional obedience exercise.
