Dog training exercises - Heeling

Hi ,

You could easily add chairs, humans and other obstacles into the routine. You can also add all kinds of distractions (noise, location etc) into this scenario and teach the dog to heel regardless of what's going on. MIX up the routines too so the dog doesn't get bored or find the training too predictable.

Make sure you give your dog rewards it loves (food, toys, praise) for a particularly challenging routine.
