Guide Dogs. Also trained to remain at the left hand are guide dogs.

With the exception of an injury to the handler's left arm, the leading dog will consistently go to the left side of the owner.

For most sports, dogs are taught to walk on the handler's left side, but if you don't plan to compete and prefer to have your dog on your right, that's your choice.

It is a good idea, though, to teach your dog to stay on one side so that he doesn't trip you as he runs back and forth.

If you have a puppy or an adult who has never been leash trained, begin with short, positive sessions.

Why do guide dogs walk on the left? Now, a person who lacks a left hand, or lacks the ability to use their left hand to hold the harness, can be trained with a dog that has also been trained, to guide from the right.

The body movements, hand signals and commands differe slightly to accommodate the changeover.

"Heel" indicates the dog is to be attentive on the left side, while "close" asks him to come to the handler either on the left or right, according to the accompanying hand gesture.

Whether on the right side or the left, the dog is expected to be responsive to all commands.
