I am sure that is something that I am not doing right but if there is another effective way to work on it with her then I think it is better for communication. She stands and steps at the same time and in bulldog smaht fashion she just runs into my hand or hunches her butt if my hand is closer.

Never do I correct for new behaviors...because they don't know what is expected anyway. If the dog doesn't know the behavior, how can you correct it? (not singling you out there Tina...just talking at large).
