Basic Dog Obedience Training Command Number 3 – Heel

The main object of basic dog obedience training is in getting your dog or puppy to understand and obey the 5 basic dog obedience training commands.  These commands are Sit, Stay, Heel, Come, and Down.

Here we will look at Basic Dog Obedience Training Command 3 – Heel

In basic dog obedience training, the purpose of the ‘heel’ command is to have your dog walk alongside you, instead of in front of you. If a dog does this correctly, the leash remains slack, and the result is that the dog keep to your walking pace.

You can start training your dog to ‘heel’ by putting your dog on a short leash. With the dog by your side facing in the same direction give him the ‘heel’ command using a firm voice. Start walking forward.  If you see that the dog is walking along with you, be sure to praise him. Consistency is important, and your dog needs to realize that he’ll get your enthusiastic praise for correct behavior. If your dog pulls away, or lags, you should use a firm snap of the leash on his collar and reprimand him by saying ‘No’. Remember to always reward him when he does it right.
