Heeling - lag in a figure 8
So, Logan is almost ready to try for his BN/CD/UCD except for one thing - he lags in the figure 8. Every. Single. Time. It doesn't matter which direction we go in, he will lag whenever we reach the part where he would have to speed up to keep up with me / so when he's on the outside as I turn right around the cone/person/whatnot.
Occasionally he'll lag a bit during a heeling pattern other than the figure 8, but it's usually at the end of training (we can be at the building for 3-4 hours at a time when I run the open training days for our dog club, plus or minus a 3 mile walk to get there...he's not training the whole time of course, but it's still a long day and he gets tired).
I just didn't expect lagging to be an issue - when he's working, he works out ahead of me (I'm near the back of his rib cage/flank) so I always figured if we'd have a heeling problem, it would be forging, not lagging.
