As a Training instructor, I'm a bit unsure of different methods to teach my students a successful Heel... I've successfully taught Gina and Archie to Heel in the past, using different methods, but what's the easiest way to teach students? I'm looking for easy to learn methods to teach. The typical way we teach is: 1) teach the dog to sit at your side. 2) teach the dog to sit at your side, walk a few steps, stop, and sit. Completed Heel sequence. 3) gradually increase distance and stimuli. Other than off-leash heeling, what are some tips and pointers I could use to teach my students, or other methods? Also, When is the best time to add the command, 'Heel', in your opinion?
