Would you like to improve your heelwork? Do you want to teach your dog to love walking by your side and walk to heel even with distractions?
A lot of people participated in our heelwork challenge in February.
We got lots of questions on how we train the dog to walk to heel so we decided to do a webinar to respond to them. Our webinar on heelwork is now available, so come join us!
You can easily watch the webinar, which is roughly an hour long, whenever you want. It’s only 15.95 USD and you can watch it as many times as you want!
The webinar contains several educational videos and we summarize the most important points in the show notes so they’ll be easier to remember. The only thing you need is your computer/tablet/phone, a browser and an internet connection.
If you’ve missed all the blog posts in the heelwork challenge (which are completely free) you’ll find them here:

Heelwork is something that a lot of people struggle with. It requires a lot of training and focus to become good. During this webinar Elsa and Lena will talk about how they train heelwork: where they start, how they move on, what they think is important to keep in mind and of course they answer common questions!
