Sorry for the comfusion.
I think many of us teach the dog to heel from the left side so that may be the side most favor. But not to say you could not teach you and your dog both sides. As you do either one side, both sides or the right side just by doing it over and over through repitition and consistency you begin to get more comfortable with your choice. IMHO
I read with interest the responses of some on this board about their rational in choosing the one sided approach over a two sided one. I was hoping to get them to extrapolate on this giving some insight to the rest of us as to the considerations they addressed in picking the side..........
My friend has her first 2 sided dog. She LOVES it so much she is teaching her youngest to be 2 sided also.
I am dyslexic and never considered it. I kept a pup from my litter that is now 3 months old. One of the pros I train with favors a 2 sided dog as well and said just try it. Well she can go to heal already on either side. I just use heal and move one hand or the other.
I may never use it at test , who knows, but I do have to say a few times running her mother I wished she could have run from my right side so I didnít have to get soaking wet running water marks.
They say with each dog you learn something new. Well maybe with Pesto I will learn how to use a 2 sided dog.
