Instructor: Shade Whitesel
My absolute favorite way to teach heeling is by shaping! Since heeling is such a complicated behavior chain with many different skills factoring in (head position, gait and rear end awareness being just a couple), I teach each skill separately and then stick them together. This class is the first of 3 on heeling, and is about the foundation behaviors needed in stationary heel position. It will also include left and right finishes, how to name them and pivots, including one and 2 steps and how to halt.
This class will overlap with the obedience skills in the retired Drives and Control 1 and 2 classes.
