Hey everyone can I ask a few novice questions?

G. and I are taking our first beginners rally class (well we started last week). The instructor doesn't give much advice when it comes to training which is hard for me because I'm a very novice trainer except for sit, stay, down, shake, play dead... types of tricks.

I've been trying to work on the left turn by starting with backing, and then I move to pivoting. if she needs help I give her a little poke on the side but she's doing pretty well. I think.

She also doesn't really give much detail into the move and how to perfect it. If we are turning left is it ALWAYS a pivot? Then when turning right it's a pivot for us but not the dog is that correct?
