Are dogs like humans in favouring sides?

Just like humans, dogs will favour either their left or right-hand sides — the right is more usual. The side that a puppy favours naturally will be the one he finds easiest, but by practising tricks and moves equally on both sides you will help to improve his balance and suppleness.
