What command is given when your dog is approaching you from the front, you want him to go around behind you and sit on yor left?
I think in SchH that you say "fuss" (heel) anytime you want the dog to be at your side in heel position.That is the same word and motion I do. I just joined a SchH club and forgot to ask, yesterday. When I got home, I started working with Kaiser and he began obeying. I wanted to get the correct terminology, so I don't have to correct it once he starts obeying.
This is what I use as well. For going around the right to heel position "around" and for going to the left I use "heel."I do rally and there are two finishes, going around my back or going directly to my left side.
For the longer route around my back I use "around", for the shorter left side, I use my command for "heel".
You can use whatever words you want. I see obedience people using the word "finish" a lot. In AKC obedience, the finish is always around the back.
LOL! I should have known this because I use the "left" finish in Obedience. Everybody else seems to use the "behind" finish. Balto's left finish is very flashy and he performs it in one leaping motion.The AKC finish isn't always around behind. Either direction is allowed.
In AKC obedience you can give either a signal or a voice command and it can be any command that you want. The judge will tell you to "Finish" and you give your own command to the dog.i say "heel". i also make a sweeping
motion with my right arm
going around my back. i can
give a verbal command or hand signal
and my dog responds.
my dog isn't in competition so i don't
know if "heel" is the correct command
when in competition.
