Step 1

Walking in heel position: Teaching your puppies not pull is going to be a game of attention. For this exercise were going to use really good food to encourage to a correct heel position. Food will be in your left hand and held in front of your puppy (and touching the side of you left leg, you may need to bend over) of your puppy encouraging them to “Heel”. Make sure you are keeping the food in the heel position. Do not move your hand let the puppy find the food. Were not going to worry about pulling for now. If you have a good connection with your puppy they will not pull because they are focused on the food. Eventually we will phase the food out and work with more praise.

Step 2

Once you have that down you can slowly start brining the food up your leg till you are standing straight. If your puppy tries to jump you can pop up on the leash a little. At this point your puppy should only be on a flat collar. heeling takes time to learn and you should be working on it for a few minutes a day several times a day. You should not be correcting the puppy for pulling. In order to get nice heeling you have to put in a good foundation. This takes months, take your time and work with them. You can get a quick fix to heeling with a prong collar but I guarantee you (there are always exceptions) that you score will not be as high. I have learned this lesson the hard way myself. Compulsion (correction) has it's place in OB but not until you have laid a good foundation first.

If you walk you dog you should not be asking for a heel. You will have to put up with a little bit of pulling. what I do is put the dog on a prong collar but I DO NOT jerk. i just let them pull but it is not as bad since they are on a prong. I use that only for a casual walk or going to the pet store.



I will add more steps later..
You should make a short video clip of this, it is kind of hard to visualize... good info =)

I watched your video of you and the dog (I apologize, I forget its name) doing the heeling and I was just in awe. I want Maile to do that!! We're gonna start practicing this as soon as my allergie allow me to venture out of the house again...ahahahaha.

Thanks, Siren is a great dog and we still have lots to work on with her. She is about 21 months old and has a lot to still learn.

You can work on her inside the house. I do little exercises in the living room in the winter when it is too cold. Good heeling starts with a good foundation and you do not need a lot of room. Teach her a watch command and then start with heeling. Take only a few steps and keep the dogs attention then reward. You can do it

I revised it a little bit and I will work on the rest tonight and Monday then I will repost it. This is what I worked on for now and I tried to proof read it but if there is an error I will catch it tonight



This is how I teach heeling. I start early on when they are just pups, but you can also start an older dogs like this too.

Step 1
Teach your puppy/dog a watch command; please see the other thread about the watch command. It will also be very helpful if you have taught your dog to sit.
Step 2
Walking in heel position: Teaching your puppies not pull is going to be a game of attention. For this exercise were going to use really good food to encourage to a correct heel position. Food will be in your left hand and held in front of your puppy (and touching the side of you left leg, you may need to bend over) encouraging them to “Heel”. Make sure you are keeping the food in the heel position. Do not move your hand let the puppy find the food. Were not going to worry about pulling for now. If you have a good connection with your puppy they will not pull because they are focused on the food. Eventually we will phase the food out and work with more praise.

Important notes
While “heeling” Always start off with the dog in a sit, say heel and step forward. I like to always step forward with the leg closest to the dog, which is the left leg if your dog is on your left side. Only take one step at a time and halt, when you halt bring the treat up so the dog goes into a sit position. When the dog sits they may have the treat, make sure you are not saying sit or the treat will be for the sit and not heeling. Eventually when you heel and then halt the dog should be sitting automatically. This is the beginning step to the automatic sit when you halt. If they get the treat every time they sit when you stop they learn very quickly to sit when you stop moving. I never will heel unless I have my dogs full attention, good habits that are started early will help you when you are ready to compete.


Step 2

Once you have that down you can slowly start brining the food up your leg till you are standing straight. If your puppy tries to jump you can pop up on the leash a little. At this point your puppy should only be on a flat collar. Heeling takes time to learn and you should be working on it for a few minutes a day several times a day. You should not be correcting the puppy for pulling. In order to get nice heeling you have to put in a good foundation. This takes months, take your time and work with them. You can get a quick fix to heeling with a prong collar but I guarantee you (there are always exceptions) that you score will not be as high. I have learned this lesson the hard way myself. Compulsion (correction) has it's place in OB but not until you have laid a good foundation first.

If you walk your dog on a casual walk you should not be asking for a formal heel. You will have to put up with a little bit of pulling but you do not want to try and heel for an entire walk. You should be keeping your heeling sessions short not too long, it take a lot of mental energy if you’re heeling properly. What I do is put the dog on a prong collar but I DO NOT jerk, I just let them pull but it is not as bad since they are on a prong. I use that only for a casual walk or going to the pet store.
