Channel Heeling is a fun and easy way to teach enthusiastic, connected heeling. Whether your goal is circle work for agility, flashy freestyle routines, precision figure-eights, or joyful, connected heeling for everyday life, the channel heeling method will teach your dog the physical skills needed to maintain heel position through a variety of tight turns and gentle arcs on the shorter and longer path.
What makes this method different is the innovative use of props to create channels. The channels make the right choice easy and the wrong choices hard. By minimizing errors (forging, lagging, drifting wide, and swinging out), the method allows your dog to practice speed changes and rear leg side stepping while you practice training mechanics and provide your dog with clear feedback.
Channel heeling is to teaching moving heel position what platforms are to teaching stationary positions. And as Ken Ramirez likes to say: Advanced training is the basics done really well.
This course is appropriate for new trainers, experienced trainers, or anyone who wants to increase the level of joy and enthusiasm their dog brings to heeling.
