That could be how he  gets his dogs to heel so nicely.  I work my boy off leash. His heeling is crisper without it, but he still sometimes likes to get directed and break the heel.  So I have to go back to a leash.

He works a lot with leash pressure, almost like one would with an e collar, turning off the pressure/stim. It's pretty interesting.  I am going to do some more serious conversational leash training with mine. I see lots of merit to it.

I will too.  I use leash pressure when we work on sit boxes. We are working on Back.  I got lazy and never taught him,  but the little genius remembered from our few sessions and now he goes back.  He turns around and walks to the back box. I would rather he just back up. He also knows Reverse which is going straight back.

That you have to find out from the dog.

Owners must be very aware of their dogs’ behavioral traits and tendencies.
