This discipline is divided into two divisions: one is heelwork to music and the other is freestyle. The overarching title for the two divisions is heelwork to music, which is usually abbreviated to HTM.
Heelwork to music came originally from the discipline of dog obedience and uses the heelwork elements of that discipline. It requires a dog to walk/trot at heel in any of the eight prescribed heelwork positions and the handler to choreograph that heelwork to a piece of music. The dog must be in a heelwork position for at least two thirds of a heelwork to music routine. The remaining one third may be freestyle.
