Focused Fuss entice/object and being vertically challenged

We are working very hard on the focused heel. He is getting it. But I am 4'11 and my dog is WGWL x Czech x Giraffe

When I place the 8 inch jute under my left armpit...well, when he gazes up his whole muzzle is past my armpit. I was told to hold it across my body to my chest with my right hand but I hear that can create walking too far ahead (forging?)

So I ordered magnet/tug combo and plan to put it on my shoulder, or...in an unprecedented feat of hilarity, on the side of my baseball cap.

Wish me luck, give me pointers, and please feel free to laugh with me. I promise pics.

I got the MCRS magnet and bite roll from Hallmark K9. Should look fetching.

Ball on a rope under the armpit. I also wear old shirts now after having one ripped by an enthusiastic dog

When he looks at my armpit area, his muzzle cheek is past my armpit So he just looks sideways, at my armpit.

If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand you’re hanging on to your dog’s body because you’ve lost his mind!

Tried redirection with a toy, moving into his space and not allowing it, correcting. He doesn't do it anymore. Training? Maturity? or just no longer necessary ? lol

All of the above no doubt LOL! Can't wait to see the videos!

I like Micheal Ellis's Focus Heeling by teaching muscle memory exercises. I feel your pain with the dog/person size. I am taller (like 5'3") but strength compromised. Gunny is huge at 9 months. He is a grandson of Hoky Va-Pe. Have been wondering if that's where the size comes from.
