Heelwork positions

If you have downloaded or printed the Nordic Championship rules, then please be aware that 2 of the heelwork positions had fallen out of the rules in the newly updated version. This has now been corrected and there are still 10 positions that are considered heelwork in HTM:

  • The dog has his right shoulder parallel with the handler’s left leg.
  • The dog has his left shoulder parallel with the handler’s right leg.
  • The dog has his right shoulder parallel with the handler’s right leg facing opposite the
    handler.
  • The dog has his left shoulder parallel with the handler’s left leg facing opposite the handler.
  • Between the handler’s legs with both shoulders parallel to the handler’s legs.
  • The dog is in front of the handler, with his side to the handler. If the dog is facing right the dog’s right shoulder should be off the handlers right leg at all times, and vice versa.
  • The dog is behind the handler, with his side to the handler. If the dog is facing right the
    dog’s left shoulder should be off the handlers right leg at all times, and vice versa.
