Training a dog to heel can start off the leash with treats and positive reinforcement before continuing training on the leash during walks. Teach a dog to he…
This is not the proper way to teach intro to heel.
My dog needs assistance with training.
what is the belt leash thing you were using?
i want one…
A good reason to keep your dog on the left is for safety in traffic. We
walk towards oncoming traffic and this puts your dog away from the cars. I
feel you are on the right track, but you should check out Karen Pryor’s
methods. She will explain why you should not use luring.
Teach Your Dog to Heel.
she is cute
I don’t like the idea that the puppy is off leash.. I don’t want my dog to
heel when it is off leash, only when my dog is leashed..?
@OlDirtyBizza No, the way clicker training works, oryou first teach the
“cue”, which is the click or the word “yes”, without any behaviour
associated with the word. Not yet. You are not associating behavior with
word just yet. That’s done later. All your are initially doing is getting
the “reward word” in place, and the “release command” in place also, so
that later on, when teach the actual stuff, you have taught the reward wrd,
the release from command word, and the attention getting phase.
they dont hunt in the real world?
@Sallybunckle pretty sure training dogs is how she makes a living, so yeah,
she is a professional dog trainer. i would actually prefer my dog to be a
step away from me and not right by my side.
cant see a damned thing!!!
Hi there… I have a 12mth old Malinois and when i take her out of the
house she gets extremely excited and pulls. I’ve tried to teach her to heel
but she does not listen. Any comments?
@dogwhisperer2 I would like so to! I’m watching all theese videos to learn
something but all the dogs seems to allready know what to do
lol i have a 2 month old german shepard and each day its teeth ar harder or
it just trys to bite me more and ive had it for 4 days
Great video, all the people who say she is bad are not paying attention and
I’d like to see her train a 100 lb german shepard and see what happens when
the dog bites her hand off for the treat and runs away…..
What do you mean ‘back in the day’? I’m a gentleman and I still carry my
gun on the right.
@dogwhisperer2 thats like a 6 month old dog, its pretty impressive they
could get it that sedated in the first place let alone train it on the
spot, anyways i choose to take her word that the dog has never heeled before
@realAmerican1969 it is best to be a pack leader to your dog and once you
have accomplished that position, it is best to use affection as a reward.
dogs like a good pat on the back.
try the halti. not so much nose band pressure. i have found in my
experience that those ones work the best.
Many thanks ill give it a shot… hope its effective
what food are you using?
I think there’s a good, contemporary, reason to teach your dog to heal on
the left. If you live in North America or other parts of the world where
people drive on the right, and you walk your dog along a road without a
sidewalk, you should be walking on the left, facing traffic. In that
situation, I would always want my dog on my left – away front the oncoming
My dog isn’t interested in the food unless it is right in front of his
face… I try to get his attention but he is more interested in walking,
cars, grass etc but if the food is put in front of him he goes straight for
it but if I pull away or hold it above him he will just ignore me.. I’m
really get frustrated because he never does as he is told when I walk him
but inside the house he always does what he is told..
she is amazing omg!! all of this without money !!!
is this dog training or human training?
I wonder if Bucksy would start to run like hell on a leash, would it rip
the hell out of your pants?. Just wondering.
@BennyDACHO But giving treats doesn’t exclude from being pack leader,
doesn’t exclude from praise, and doesn’t exclude from telling off the dog
when he is doing something wrong. If the dog indeed is food motivated, why
not use it as well?
@LIUtenant: Try getting a head collar named Gentle Leader. Other head
collrs might not work as well. My Pit Bull pulled excessively and stopped
as soon as I got him using it. To get them to use it, you sohuld just put
the nose part on and treat them with very special treats in the house. The
next day, maybe clip it on. and treat. The next day, go for a walk with it.
I used that to start to teach heel and now I can walk him on a Sensation
Harness without him pulling.
@cynthy123 if a dog is to focused on the food it is generally because the
owner hasn’t learned about “variable-ratio schedule” this means you don’t
treat the dog every time he sits, after they learn sit you mix it up, maybe
after every 4th sit you give a treat, or after 10 sits you can treat think
of a slot machine they don’t pay every time you pull the handle, but they
pay out enough every now and then to keep you pulling that handle… it
makes you more interesting if you are not predictable.
@dogwhisperer2 yeah that would be very helpful wouldnt it
didnt put my comment above in the right box
this is merely the attention getting phase. without attention, no other
behavior is able to be taught. This trainer is teaching that staying with
handler is met with food reward and thus, engagement is rewarded. This dog
is untrained. Long way to go before finished exercise is shown.
Great vid. I’m going to try it with my own dog next week.
