I want some opinions on this. How do you use your Heel command? I know that Heel is a position... And many people teach it as such. But I've always taught the dogs to go to heel, using a Different command (such as "around") or a lure/signal, then gave the heel command as we begin motion. I had a hard time teaching my first dog that "heel" meant "go to heel and stay there no matter what".
That was a long time ago, and we're over that-- but that method stuck. How and when do you use that command? How did you teach your dog initially to get into the heel position? I was also wondering what common obedience ring commands and signals were.
