Pro Heeling Sick is an invaluable training tool used by professional and amatuer trainers.
When used correctly at the right time, it can be the most effective form of correction there is.
A very important point when using a heeling stick is proper hold. If you do not hold the stick properly,it is extremely hard to give a correction to your dog at the proper time. A heeling stick should be held in the hand on the same side your dog is heeled on. The correction should be given straight down so your dog will not see any unnecessary movement.
When using a heeling stick to teach your dog to walk at heel, timing of a correction is important. First, make sure that the dog has been taught properly to heel with a choke chain or our super coil lead.
When teaching heel, the dog's front shoulders get in front of your leg he is heeled on, you should deliver a correction. The correction should be delivered to his hindquarter, and you should give the "heel" command after the correction. The dog should return back to the heel position. Walk forward again and give a correction and heel command if needed. Once the dog is proficient at walking straight lines at heel, you should move to figure eights. To offer your dog a greater challenge at heel, you can walk him past piles of bumpers or other dogs. If he gets out in front of you, you should deliver a crisp correction to his hindquarters followed by the "heel" command.
Now you don't have to give a hard correction to the dog. The Pro Heeling stick is training tool not a tool used for punishment. You should only give enough correction to change the action of the dog.
The Pro Heeling stick can be the most affective training tool you use to teach your dog to heel after the dog is trained with a lead,super coil or choke chain.
