If you have ever had an out of control animal, you know that sometimes obedience training can seem beyond the realm of possibility. How do you go from a headstrong, reckless puppy to a calm, well-mannered dog? Teaching your dog to heel is tough because they naturally want to yank in their own direction to explore. Heeling is important if the dog is going to be walked by children, the elderly, or anyone else who can't take the strain of pulling. With consistency, patience and, of course, lots of treats, your dog can learn to be a good citizen on or off the leash. The owner of Griffin Shepard Kennels demonstrates here that with the right training, you can teach your dogs to follow so well that they can heel without even needing a leash.
