    If you want to try and explain competition heeling with reward and clicker, have at it Jenn.

    This is about little dogs but it's all the same concept.

    drake, how old is your dog?

    Signing off for tonight, brain doesn't work after 8:30 pm. I think with the brain power on this forum, we can come up with a good solution for you tomorrow, hang in there.

    Here is a combination of food , e collar and no rope. Its a 5 month 3 week pup. ever week is a giant leap in a puppies life... With this method you can teach the dog the position with absolutely no forging . As the dog gets older,, corrections will be involved and a higher level of force,,,because eventually the focus will be out in the field and not up at the trainer. You can't tell here that the dog is being forced but you may be able to tell when its used based on the dogs behavior and then see the change. Its pretty gentile but very effective on a young pup that doesn't have a whole lot of distractions

    Nice video Pete. I have a 6 mo old Pitbull here I'm doing that same thing with. Just can't figure out how to ever explain it to someone.

    Its tough to explain especially since I'm a bad explainer. This is way easier on my back and brain than yank and crank. Just makes life easier for me and I like easy

    Pete, during the heeling I couldn't tell if you ever used the collar, did you?

    I thought you may have used it on the very first, "Here," when she was off camera but that was it.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
