Initially, I talked about different parts of the heelwork – details, endurance and distractions. I often train them separately, but they must of course also be combined. I can’t keep on turning around or walking in circles for all eternity since the goal is to be able to walk in the direction I want, and that the dog just tags along with me.
- Think about what distractions you need to work with and think about how you can control your dog’s anticipation.
- 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.
