A couple of you have been asking how I teach heel, so here it is! The first thing I work on is getting the dog to find the heel position. They have to be VERY good at this first step if we want a reliable, tight and focused heel.
A good technique to remove the ‘chair’ is to put it further away by an inch every day for a week. By the end of the week you will likely no longer need it.
Teaching a dog to come around to your side also has a very useful application in loose leash walking. I will go over this in my next video, which will be up in 2 days!
