On-Leash Heeling

On-leash heeling is a complex, multi-part process.  The secret is mastering off-leash heeling skills first

Off-Leash Heeling

Before you attempt on-Leash heeling, make sure you can heel your dog off-leash.  Otherwise you’ll use the leach for physical control, and it will become a permanent crutch

Walking On Leash

By and large, leash-pulling masks the real problem: without a leash you would probably be without a dog. It is indeed a sobering thought to think that most dogs prefer to forge ahead and to sniff the grass or other dogs' rear ends than to walk by their owner's side.
There are some dogs who simply don't want to walk beside owners who keep yanking the leash. However, regardless of why your dog pulls, all dogs need to be trained to walk nicely on leash. If not, they are unlikely to be walked at all.

Sit-Stay & Walk On-Leash

This is one of my all-time favorite training exercises — simply scary in simplicity and shocking in terms of magical results. This exercise actually provides the secret information that some gawdy websites promise over and over but never actually deliver. Watch our videos and see for yourself.

You start with an over-the-top, Iditarod-level leash-puller, who hasn’t paid attention to you for months, or years, and after just ten minutes fun training, you recreate your attentive dog who walks calmly on leash, looks up at you when you slow down and automatically sit-stays when you stop.

Until such a time as your dog is trained to your satisfaction, weigh out and use your dog’s daily allotment of kibble for this and other exercises. You may perform this exercise at home (indoors or outdoors) or on a walk.
