Dog: “How do you expect me to walk next to you when you keep shouting at me to HEEL and strangling me”
Heelwork can be a challenge, but when attempting to teach your dog to walk next to you keep these three things in mind:
- Make yourself interesting to walk with or the smells on the grass and lampposts will win your dog’s attention every time.
- Be nice, would you want to walk next to an angry person who keeps choking you?
- Change pace and directions and engage with your dog, checking your mobile phone when walking your dog automatically makes you dull to be with!
