Who Says Tibbies Can't Do Obedience?

On or off leash, we can do it. The walking-at-heel thingie. The stay. Waiting to jump over something until asked to jump. I really like the regal way the tibbie in the video takes the jump. Calm elegance, no?
But..... Alice has not convinced me (or herself) that I would truly enjoy all that heel work. I mean.... would that mean my days of sniff-fest walks would be over?
And it seems to involve a lot of awkward neck positions for the dog....
I am already quite good at The Stay while standing. Not good with the sit thing. That seems a come down.
