Can someone answer a question that knows about AKC dog obedience?

Where EXACTLY should my arms/hands be when heeling ON and OFF LEAD? I asked earlier and got a good answer but I just want to make sure they were right. Thanks.

    I have 4 standard poodles, and all of them have (or are now competing) in AKC and UKC obedience and have titles- Novice and Open titles. I have taught obedience for 5+ years.

    On lead, right hand doesn’t matter, left hand should be hanging naturally at your side, with slack in the lead.

    Off lead, both arms should be hanging/swinging naturally at your sides. If you have a large dog who will keep trying to lick/eat/headbutt your hand, then you can keep your left hand on your waist, over your “belt buckle” area.
