Left is standard at our police academy, but I don't know why. Maybe for showing/competing too? I do left because you're supposed to walk on the left side of the road and it's safer if she's not on the road side. Drivers will likely see me easier than they'd see a dog.
IF you go to your user CP and put in info like where you live that will help If people don't read your first post they won't know you are from Irelandthe interesting thing here if i took that thought he'd be on the right as we're on the other side of the road:laugh:
im thinking for shows and the likes.....
I read somewhere that back in the day, gentlemen wore their guns on their right side (because most people are right-handed) and led their dogs on the left, that way the dog wouldn't accidentally get shot. It turned into a tradition kind of thing and it's still used in "formal" dog situations, minus the gun.
