We also worked on heeling. Many people just want to require their dogs to loose leash walk without a formal heel, but it's easier for me to have her in a definitive place rather than just have a loose leash. It really gives me a target to click on rather than just for Bailey. We have practiced a little in the past, but today it really seemed to click for her once we got going. She has walked farther in a heeling position than she every has before.
