Thread: left-sided and both sided dogs

  1. #1

    Smile left-sided and both sided dogs

    Who are some well-known pros and others that train their FT dogs to be one-sided? I am curious.

    Ted Shih comes to mind, he is an "other"

    I have been told by at least 6 pro's, that the 2 sided training is done at the request of the dog's owner. They say it takes many years to properly read a dog from one side and that to effectively read a dog from 2 sides takes a long time. This is just for one dog, let alone 15 or 20.

    My observations are that at least 50% are now only one sided

    Not positive but I think Rough is only one sided. The left is the only side I've ever seen him run from anyway.

    I prefer two sided. Jim Gonia was asked about it and replied "yes I think it is the way to go...I just haven't had a dog live long enough to train on the other side"
