Train Your Dog To Heel Off The Leash

Train Your Dog To Heel Off The Leash



How to​ Train Your Dog to​ Heel Off the​ Leash
Important - When you​ take the​ leash off,​ remember the​ following:
Your dog should not run off,​ with you​ chasing vainly behind,​ yelling for Fido to​ come back.
Yes,​ if​ you​ want Fido to​ free heal,​ you​ must have your dog trained to​ heal on​ the​ leash first.
This is​ how you​ need to​ start;
Take your dog off it's leash
Walk in​ a​ straight line .​
(Angling into your dog will cause her to​ heel wide.)
Walk briskly! Don't walk at​ the​ pace of​ your dog.
Don't wave your hands about - hold your LEFT hand close to​ your body!
Make sure you​ always give the​ first command in​ a​ happy tone of​ voice.(Your dog needs to​ know that you​ are happy – don't try to​ teach your dog anything if​ you​ are in​ a​ bad mood.)
Change your voice to​ a​ commanding tone or​ call your dog's name sharply if​ they don't keep up to​ your walking pace or​ if​ they amble away .​
AFTER the​ second command,​ gently pat your side and give praise.(Give praise at​ every opportunity)
If forging (Fido tries to​ get ahead of​ you) is​ your problem,​ or​ if​ your dog attempts to​ dart off,​ you​ must stand still! Signal back with your left hand and repeat the​ heel command forcefully,​ then pat your side coaxingly.
Remember,​ training your dog is​ not unlike training your child to​ behave in​ a​ way society expects .​
Give them rules and bounderies .​
Be firm about what is​ right and what is​ not .​
Praise whenever you​ have an​ opportunity,​ That is,​ whenever you​ dog performs as​ asked.
When your dog is​ doing a​ good job of​ learning,​ give it​ the​ commendation it​ deserves! Praise it​ while it​ is​ actually learning and performing well .​
If the​ dog you​ are training is​ large,​ make sure you​ carry the​ leash folded twice,​ with the​ snap end in​ your RIGHT hand .​
If the​ dog fails to​ pay attention,​ call her name loudly or​ reach out and spank her playfully on​ the​ hindquarters with the​ end of​ the​ leash .​
You should then coax your dog close by patting your side .​
(Never hit hard or​ in​ such a​ way that you​ cause you​ dog pain .​
Just the​ LIGHT spank is​ all that's needed)
If all attempts to​ keep your dog at​ heel position fail,​ it's time to​ put the​ leash back on,​ give it​ ONE good jerk to​ bring the​ dog in​ close,​ and try again .​
The change in​ voice,​ followed by flattery,​ with the​ occa­sional use of​ the​ leash,​ should eventually teach your dog to​ stay at​ your side at​ all times .​
Especially if​ you​ make the​ heeling fun!
