HOW TO Train Your Dog To HEEL! FIRST STEPS!
What's up everyone andy krueger here today's video i'm gonna show you how to properly start your heel command this is for super beginner dogs and any dog can do this and this is the real way you start heal the real way you train heal this isn't a goofball youtube video how to stop the leash pulling in.
One magic trick no this is how you actually build heal brand new board and train just under a year old german shepherd his owner has done a phenomenal job with his foundation so i have a good blank canvas to work with and i'm going to show you exactly how i start heal now you guys know how i roll you guys know how i roll.
Food apron we got lincoln's food all up in there hello right hand left hand now before you start trying to train heal before you start trying to do what i'm about to show you if your dog can't do this don't move on.
I know everyone's like andy stop it that's so stupid that's so easy show us the magic of heel if your dog can't consistently take food out of your hands without dropping it without checking out in any environment don't move on and i mean you need to be able to take your dog to the park and do.
This you need to be able to take your dog to the hardware store and do this and what i'm doing is i'm grabbing four or five pieces of his food i'm making a cup with my hand and i'm allowing him.
To eat out of there one piece at a time so four pieces of food is gonna last me one mississippi two mississippi three mississippi a good three four five seconds if your dog can't take food like that they're.
Not ready to train if you go to the park or the hardware store and you give them the food and your dog turns his nose at it and walks away your dog isn't hungry so your dog can't train this you need a hungry motivated dog to do this so now that we got that out of the way i'm gonna take that same technique of cupping my hand.
And holding the food in it except i'm gonna take my hand i'm gonna flip it and i'm gonna pay him on my left side so how to start training heel looks like this left hand boom boom food patch food patch dog on the left put the dog where you want him he's not going to magically drift into heel on his own this is called luring.
Dog needs to follow the lure right where you want them here we go boom reload boom reload bingo when you go and try this with your dog you have a handful of kibble you drop it all over the place the dog goes here the dog's knocking food out that dog doesn't know how to take food out of.
Your hand that dog doesn't know how to follow a lure so you have to go back a step and do what i just showed you until they're good at that watch me put him in heel position follow the lure flip him pay him i'll show you again follow the lure.
Flip him pam i want his ear in line with my hip that looks basic if your dog can't do that your dog is not going to learn to heal you're not going to be able to teach a reliable heel if you just slap a prong collar on the dog to get them to stop pulling that's.
Not training heel that's using a collar to get them to stop pulling and if you ever take that collar off you're in big trouble the dog's gone so the dog doesn't actually know he'll this case all he has on is a flat collar i have a little six foot leash i have his food this is actually training heel so again i'm gonna take him i'm luring him.
I'm luring him i'm flipping him and i'm paying him bingo there's a boy now once you get this down pat at home in your house in your yard now you take this to a park now you take this to a hardware store and if your dog just totally won't do it at all in that place.
You got a lot of work to do you have to build it from square one but your dog should be able to do this in any and every environment before you even think about fading the lore fading the lure is i don't have to have my hand right in his face feeding him all the time that's dog training you teach something with the lord then you.
Fade out the lord you add a word before you can do any of that you need to be able to lure the dog in heel anywhere anytime now i know what you're thinking oh my god andy that looks like it's going to take forever i so don't have the patience for that bed trainer then you shouldn't have a.
Dog this isn't patience this is learning how to follow a specific training system i'm the least patient person in the world i want everything fast right now but i know how to follow a training system and i know the steps that it takes this won't take that long this will take a month or two if you know what you're.
Doing if you start this when the puppy's three four five six months old you can have a beautiful heel way before the dog's even one year old bad trainer it doesn't take that long now heel doesn't just mean walking forward does it it sure doesn't heal means be on my left side no matter what heel doesn't mean go forward hey yo.
So i not only should be able to do this but i should also be able to do this oh yeah look at that it comes with the territory people okay if you never want your finger to get scratched up don't get a dog and try to train it one more am i gonna start saying the word heal.
Absolutely not he's not ready for that action just lore reload huh that'll happen water breaks in order soon here we go nice nice so if your dog can't do that your dog's.
Never gonna heal every owner and dog should do that activity this is how you really bond with a dog i know you're all going to be like oh me and my dog are so bonded if you can't do this you're missing a giant component because you know what anyone can love on the dog anyone can spoil the dog your.
Neighbor can come over every day the mailman can come every day love on the dog for five minutes and then your dog's obsessed with that person anyone can do that your neighbor can't lure the dog in to heal your mailman can't take him to the hardware store and heal up and down the aisles using food so it's something special that you and your dog develop.
And this is how you're going to set the standard for all your other training everything else that you want to teach the teach the dog here you go buddy look alive that's a leash that's a leash let me know what y'all think of the video i really hope this helps i hope this debunks all the goofy.
