I went over what we were doing, breaking it down every step of the way and I think we're getting somewhere. What I've found when she's bumping me is that her hind end is swung out and her front end is angled at me(just slightly, nothing extreme), so she can't help but crash into me. Why I never noticed what her rear was doing is beyond me but I'm chalking it up to ignorance.so i broke it down and retrained from the bottom up and reinforced NOT touching me and bumping me. we encourage the dogs to get closer to us to heel, so he just took it one step further.
So my question is, what's the best way to get her in line? I know with Scoob, when we would come to a stop, he would swing his rear out just before he sat and I had always steered his hind end with my hand to where I wanted it, til he realized where his hind quarters was supposed to be. Would this be how I should go about it with her?
