Service dog “walk w/ me” & “wait” – foward momemtum/counter balance training

Part of foward mometum & counter balance is to learn to walk ahead of you, out of heel position, and to not sit on a stop as we do with heel. So I named the walking ahead of me action “walk with me” and he pulls on the vest with the command of “foward” and will learn “slower” & “faster” commands as well as directional commands as we go but for now I needed to name the act of walking out ahead of me and that is “walk with me”.

We have done “walk with me” before and I have up another foward momemtum/counter balance training session where he was learning how to pull against the vest with the command “foward” but he needs to work on “wait” and staying standing (in general) so that’s what this session was mostly about.

This was a positive only session but in general, and as always, our tools work for us so any comment debating tools or being hateful will be deleted.
