Home » Heelwork » Day 5: Beware of mistraining!

With mistraining I mean training that counteract what I actually want to teach the dog. Something that happens when I forget to maintain my criteria or when I think that I am training something else and forget that the dog learns all the time.

Today’s exercise

    • Think about your own heelwork strategies. When and how do you train it and when does mistraining just happen? How can you eliminate the mistraining?
    • Train heelwork at least once. (Note how many sessions and minutes of heelwork you do. Train what you and your dog need – it doesn’t have to be the training in the blog post of the day.)
    • Feel free to tell us and others about your training by commenting on the posts on our website and/or Facebook page.
    • If you haven’t participated in the challenge from the start, read here to find out how it works: Day 1: Heelwork challenge.
