When Adele brought home her Flat-Coated Retriever puppy "Sonic" in October of 2011, she started producing short videos of training sessions. The ones she has finished are organized by classes and by areas of training. You can also see all of the videos Adele has posted on her YouTube channel.
Areas of Training: Heeling
"Heeling is the obedience exercise in which the handler plays the most important role. A smooth dog and handler team provides a flowing picture. The good handler leads the dance, giving subtle cues that the well-trained dog instantly follows. Conversely, the poor handler weaves and jerks her way around the ring, steps into her dog on halts, steps away on turns, and pretends to do pace changes. This is hard for the dog to follow, and difficult to judge." (pg 141 of Competition Obedience: A Balance Act)
If there isn't a link, it means Adele hasn't released a video on that topic.
