I often tend to simple-up how to train various tricks, sometimes with great results, sometimes, not so much! So many tricks seem to have multi-step lessons, or steps, that i am often able to skip. Not always, but 'sometimes to often', i can find simpler more direct way to get same trick. anyway, i've always wanted to teach that type of heelwork, which the dog keeps his eyes on his owner, and follows beside the left leg, as owner does turns, backwards, forwards, etc etc, the dog stays beside human and follows exactly, with his eyes focused on owner's face. Many ppl advised me, the TURNS are the hardest part of such work, and recommended i teach "elephant" trick (dog does circles with his back legs, by holding his front legs on a pan, then dog does circles touching my leg around the pan, then fade the pan). MY dog immediately got the concept, but Unfortunately, *i* got dizzy as heck, within moments, of walking sideways around the pan to lure my dog to move his back legs. then i also wondered, "if *i* am dizzy, is Buddy also dizzy?" so i quit that trick before being able to cue Buddy to do the turns without me also walking sideways around to lure him. SO I CAME UP WITH THIS simple, easy-cheesy way to get same heelwork. First, I did "leftside" trick, which my dog had already learned, from our old "classroom" area which is not there. That trick was called "get in", and the final result was, dog stands or sits (depending on what you asked for) beside your left leg, facing same direction.. so i asked Buddy "Left side" and he sat beside me, facing same direction i was facing. I PUT A PIECE OF CHEESE IN MY OWN MOUTH, said "heel" and took a step forward. Buddy, mesmerized by the cheese sticking out of my mouth, also stepped fwd. CLICK/TREAT/PRAISE. Another step fwd, same thing. it's only been a few days, but, dispite never conquering the elephant trick, Buddy is also able to follow my turns!! Who knew? Who knew walking with a piece of cheese in your mouth could also train your dog to walk beside you, with his eyes up on you? WA-LA!!!!!!!!!
