Heeling Training Video – Working on Forging During Halt and Speed of Wrap Around About-Turn

An everyday heeling training session.

The Handler is working on the speed of the about-turn by completing more than 360˚ turn. We are changing the dog’s expectations about when the turn will be completed hence increasing the speed.

The Handler uses a horsewhip to tap the dog back into the correct halt position before proceeding to heel. If possible, do it right before the dog comes into the halt position if you see that he is already forging. Consistency is the key to changing this behavior.
