Walking/Heel – Heeling means that your dog walks closely by your side with their head parallel to your left leg. When you turn, your dog turns with you. When you stop, he automatically sits by your side waiting until you ask him to continue heeling.
This exercise is extremely useful when you’re in a crowded area and want your dog close to your side instead of at the end of a leash. The idea is to make heeling a command that your dog can do through an entire walk. The ultimate goal is to have your dog able to heel off leash. This will take work and dedication, but the result is having your dog able to walk around without a leash.
