I hesitate to post this cuz I look so gross, but after seeing it, I am going to do something about it! So, I guess it's a good thing to share in order to make it official.

Anyhew...Yesterday at training I had a friend video our heeling pattern. The gal calling thought I should do the Utility heel, so I went with it and threw in the signals. I lost him a little on the about turn, but otherwise I think he is doing so much better! Thanks again for all the suggestions on my previous thread.

Okay, here are my two cents for what it is worth.. Looks good but here is what I would have you do if you were my student.. you need to walk a little faster with a shorter stride..Make sense?.. because there was not a big difference in slow time. That would get marked around here.. Might have been the camera angle but you should work on that...you are also easing into the sit. I think you will get a much faster sit if you are moving on the heeling and just stop.I also thinks it makes them pay closer attention.. otherwise nice work! You go girl!

He's looking good! The only about turn that you lost him a little was the one where YOU dropped your shoulder back and turned to look at him!! The others were just fine.
Great job!

He has great attention. That's the main thing I noticed<:

Any criticism I can think of is when you started off it looked like he was forging slightly. This showed on the left turns... I think. Maybe practice get-backs or backs before left turns? *Nobody else mentioned this, so it could be my imagination. :)

Again, he looks great<:

Nope, not your imagination, I noticed it too, his head was well ahead of her leg at first, but then he fixed it which is why I didn't mention it.

He's looking really good Laura! Be careful about moving your left hand up on finishes, it can become habit real fast.
