Pot Work & Teaching Get the Rear in Foundation Exercises
Janice felt it was important to include some basic foundation skills that will help you to achieve your heeling goals. In these exercises she emphasizes rear end awareness and how to help your dog keep his rear in. One of the common problems in heeling is that the dog tends to "crab" which is heeling with the rear end out, this equals points off in the ring. Left turns are also difficult for many handlers and results in the handler turning left and the dog bumps into you by not picking up on your cue. This foundation work will help a lot of these issues, and it is also a fun exercise for your dog to learn.
