I have trained all my dogs to walk on either side in hunt because I am right handed BaWaaJige is on my left but my son is right hand but shoots left handed so he has ATEM on his right side for hunt but left side for obedience.

I try to walk Brew on my right side, but he feels walking circles around me suites him better....

Unless performing in obedience, hunting or agility, does it matter which side? (Rhetorical question but feel free to answer! ) Frankly, I want my dogs to be able to heel off-leash wherever I put them, so I think more versatile is better.
