Luring to Heel Position
To be successful Luring to Heel, you want to have practiced luring and use of a marker (yes or click).
Put your baited hand to your dog’s nose. Step your left foot back and slowly bring your dog back a little bit behind you. Step your left foot forward, and when your dog gets into heel position by your left leg mark it (yes or click) and give the treat.
This is luring so we will use “Say it, Show it, Pay it.”
When your dog is moving with you successfully, add “With Me” or “Heel” or “Walking,”whichever cue you choose, at the start of the exercise. After your dog is moving into position successfully begin to add a few steps.
