My boy, Ra Kismet, is very good at giving right paw/left paw back and front, when asked but the rot sets in when asked to do any heel work. For example, he will do 'close heel' left forward and back perfectly, but ask for the same movement on the right side and he really does totally 'screw up'. I usually get a dog well angled 'out', if he'll move at all forward or backwards, or sit again more in front of me than at my side - or if he's feeling really creative and my legs are not clamped together - I get a lovely 'peek a boo' trick I've tried blocking him when doing right side work, unfortunately do not have anything high enough, because he just jumps on or over any block. When we're out on our walks he will usually walk just slightly ahead or close on my left side. Have tried to encourage him to 'change sides' but he'll only do so if there's an appealing smell. And he'll always without any prompting reset himself to my left side or slight ahead. As he clearly knows his left and right paws, what's going wrong with my training in heel work when we attempt 'right side'? Really want the boy to get this, as he'll be going back to doggy school soon and will need to know this trick. Plus starting in Canine Freestyle work, where I need right and left sides to 'happen'.
