This is a great exercise to maintain an advanced heeling dog and also for a dog that has new heeling skills and you are working on body awareness. This exercise forces you as a handler to look where you are going and cue your dog appropriately.
The maze I have set up is quite tight, so if I don’t cue my dog and handle myself properly we are going to crash into objects. The objects I have set up are a variety of things, including gutters, manikins and more. It also helps dogs to become less visually aware and sensitive of their surroundings.
