This is another cool Dogmantics Dog Training Tip on how to teach your dog to walk next to you on a loose leash. If you are consistent with this behavior, you can actually make pressure on the leash a CUE for the dog to back up and they learn to walk on a loose leash as a default. =—- Teaching a dog to back up into the heel position on walks is helpful for many reasons. 1- If you have more than one dog on a walk sometimes it can be hard to turn around and go the other way if both dogs are ahead of you. Teaching them to back into the heel position allows you to move freely 2- If you train your dog that when he reaches the end of the leash the only way he can move forwards again is to back up, he will consciously start avoiding hitting the end of the leash. This means- No more pulling on leash. 3- This is a great impulse control exercise based on the Premack Principle. In order to move forwards you must first move backwards. —- Loose leash walking obedience without force how to train a dog without using punishment clicker training dog training walking in heel how to teach backing up on leash How to train a puppy to walk next to you .

    AB FAB-LOVE these videos of yours, my shelter volunteer friends are using “yanking” and pulling and yanking more to teach them who is boss-at the instruction of the ACO’s! I am trying to convert slowly and your vids are so logical and stress free that I think it will help THank you so much.

    Thank you SO much Emily !!
    I got my dog to back up by walking towards her. But now we’re stuck, I can’t get her to back up without moving into her. 🙁

    CORRECTION:
    There is NO word “forwards” in English – neither spoken nor written. There is only “forward.” (Au contraire, “backwards” IS an optional term for “backward.”)

    Thank you for your brilliant series of videos. I have two labradors who have recently arrived in Australia and were pulling on their leashes. Following your clicker training tips and slowly progressing to the back-up I have had two wonderful walks with my dogs Flynn and Pai this morning. It is really exciting to see how much they enjoy the walk and importantly the interaction with me. I am thrilled and highly motivated to continue with this wonderful method. Thank you for taking the time.

    Do i have to have a “clicker” or cant i just clap my hands or some other clicking noise?

    @rwburnell I actually struggle with language. So you will find lots of “misspellings” in my writing and videos. I have had trouble hearing and pronouncing words since I was a child. I still confuse curb, with “curve”,,, I am dyslexic as well. I will focus on making videos and enjoy the process rather than getting depressed looking for errors in my speech patterns. I have seen the word “forwards” in written English, but I do believe you are right… that I am misusing “proper” English

    @rwburnell However I don’t really mind that I do not speak properly, as neither did Shakespeare- he used the word “forwards” 🙂

    SONNET 60

    Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore,
    So do our minutes hasten to their end;
    Each changing place with that which goes before,
    In sequent toil all forwards do contend.

    @Civicblabla no you don’t, you can use a world like “yes’ but a sound that always sounds the same is best. Some people make a clicking noise with their mouth. I clap for my dogs some times (like in the middle of a routine) however at other times it doesnt work as well, as you might need your hand to hold a lure etc… like in this video. You can use a ball point pen if it has a loud enough click to it.

    @rwburnell CORRECTION: it might not be listed in some concise dictionaries but “forwards” IS a legitimate English word. It’s listed as an adverb in the Oxford English Dictionary online and has been in use since the 15th century. (You need a subscription to access this, but other comprehensive dictionaries will list it as well). @Emily, you always communicate clearly in your videos in any case. And thanks for this video – as usual, really helpful!

    @kikopup maybe you here the words the way it is used in the German Dog training world: the word “forwards: = vorwerts/voraus it means kind a like “lets go”/go ahead. I am German and have been living in America for nearly 20 years now and I also have trouble with some words and pronouncements,but just like you kikopup I will not let it stop me from working my dogs and teaching dog Obedience; I love it to much.Keep up the good work you are great!

    I can’t even begin to thank you enough for your wonderful, infinitely-helpful videos! I watched your YT channel all day yesterday, and in the past 12 hrs have seen more results in my dog than I have able to achieve in 1.5 yrs of basic praise/treat training. I am so excited to begin this new, supportive relationship with him. You have opened up a realm of training possibilities.

    You are a wonderful teacher and a valuable resource. I will be sure to pass this along to all my dog-owning friends!
