pammyd Posted October 15, 2007 Report Share Posted October 15, 2007 Now I have no illusions that my lovely boy is going to take on the world at anything but I would like to try out different things with him and see what he likes He did really well in his puppy obedience class and could focus on me and do what I asked no matter what else was going on but the problem is that was months ago and the next class hasnt started yet (and she hasnt given us a date) Obviously I am still training him anything I can think of - but I dont want to be teaching him wrong and having to start again But both Ben and me seem to work better with him at heel on my right side Is this bad? everyone I see seems to have their dog on the left side I am also doing puppy agility with him (which he loves) so I am trying to teach him to run on my left side too but the other day a guy who does agility here brought out some weaves for us to have a shot, I ran ben up to them, finger lured him through with him at the right hand side of me The guy told me that was wrong and I had to have him on my left I tried, this seemed to be an more difficult way round for me because it seems to me that from that side I am trying to get him to ignore the 1st pole wheras when I have him on the right I have to send him out round the 1st pole - so he becomes more aware that he has to have the 1st pole on his left (I know there is better ways to teach weaves but the club I want to join this is how they teach them) Question is - does it matter?? I will teach him obedience on both sides soon - but we prefer the right - is that OK? and the weaves I cant see that it is right to stick only to one side - what happens if the course is set up so you cant get round to the 'correct' side Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
