Dave Kroyer's DVD shows him do the beginning stages of focused heeling by having a game where the dog is in between his legs and looking up for food as they walk, which teaches head position for focused heeling as used in IPO. Ellis's DVDs show the heeling against a wall (as does Kroyer) but never between the legs.

Anybody train focused heeling using Kroyer's method? The DVD I watched was the "Training through Pictures," so it was not his heeling DVD per se.

Thanks

I don't know that this will be necessarily germane to your question but......recently I taught my dog to "place" between my legs while standing. One of my surprises was how the dog in this position intently looks up at me to make eye contact...I did not expect this but it certainly seems to be a plus.

I try to just work with the dog beside me(and the stupid snow) and engage/reward. They are both working Mals not so much the GSD...Mals are much different, IMO.
