Call Front - 1, 2, 3 Steps Backward. While heeling, the handler stops forward motion and calls the dog to the front position (dog sits in front and faces the handler). The handler may take several steps backwards as the dog turns and moves to a sit in the front position. With the dog in the front position, the handler takes one step backwards and halts. The dog moves with the handler and sits in the front position as the handler halts. This is followed by the handler taking two steps backwards and a halt, and three steps backwards and a halt. Each time, the dog moves with the handler to the front position and sits as the handler halts. The handler then commands the dog to resume heel position as the team moves forward toward the next station (the dog needs to clear the handlers forward path when commanded to resume heel position but does not need to be completely in heel and should not sit in heel before the handler starts forward). (Stationary exercise)

27. Stop and Down. While moving with the dog in heel position, the handler commands and/or signals the dog to down as the handler comes to a stop next to the dog. Once the dog is completely down the handler moves forward commanding the dog to heel forward from the down position (stationary exercise).

29. Left About Turn. While moving with the dog in heel position, the handler makes an about turn to the left, while at the same time, the dog must move around the handler to the right and to heel position. The dog does not sit before moving forward in heel position with the handler (the dog does a normal right about turn while the handler pivots left).
30. HALT - Walk Around Dog. With the dog sitting in heel position, the handler commands the dog to stay (or wait), then proceeds to walk around the dog to the left, returning to heel position. The handler must pause in heel position before moving forward to the next station. (Stationary exercise)
31. HALT - Down - Walk Around Dog. With dog sitting in heel position, the handler commands the dog to down and to stay, then proceeds to walk around the dog to the left, returning to heel position.
