Trail etiquette

When hunting boar in Europe with game wardens I’ve respected how their dogs heel a step behind them on single tracks and in thick cover, so I’ve followed their example for several reasons to include; 1. I meet on coming hikers and their poorly behaved dogs first so I can leash mine if potential for trouble, and 2. the dog doesn’t always have to be in front - as a pack animal I think having him heel a step behind in situations where I want complete control is good for his psyche,

I’m the pack leader and reassuring for him to know he doesn’t have to try to be.
