heres what i have to add to this -

i have a different definition of heel and LLW than you guys, i think.

heeling, to me - is not just a dog being in a position, but means attention on me. eyes on me, checking in with me constantly. it means we are working. it means no distractions, no paying attention to anyone else.

LLW means you have a radius that is fine with me, as long as you dont hit the end of the leash. you can be next to me, you can be up to 18-24 inches in any direction near me - but you are walking with me in the general sense, and still responsive, but you are free to look elsewhere, you are free to sniff, etc.

Then i have total freedom - pull, run, pee, do your thing.
