I was wondering if about starting heel training early.
I have a 9 week labrador puppy who is doing great. Already sitting on command, coming when called etc - learning very quickly off the other dog.
However, the older one has never been excellent at heel and I would like the new pup to be great at heel. I would ideally like to stalk with him at heel, no lead when he is old enough and ready.
Currently I am slowly familiarising him with a lead, some days the lead won't bother him and I try walking him around the garden on a short lead, repeating the 'heel' command for about 10 minutes and giving praise when he does it then a small treat before he looses interest.
Does anyone have any tips or advice on heel training?
