Coincidence that you posted this as I have a DVD on the way from bowwow flix by Gottfried that I'm now looking forward to even more.

Great clip. Thank You

I've got a really dumb question to ask. I love the unstaged look of dog obedience. The one thing that just gets me is the focus of the dog looking at the handler while walking. If the commands are verbal, is this necessary or even desirable? In an everyday situation, you would want the dog to focus more on where you are both going and what's ahead of you IMO. Are some dogs trained this way? Or, is it all about where the "treat" bag is located on the body?

I believe it's just to look flashy during competition.My dog will heel like that if I tell him to watch me,but normally he just watches my leg.
