Teaching your dog to come to your side, facing forward.

This is a useful command to teach before teaching heel-work. Here are four stages shown by two puppies working in their very first class! Often, the handler would then ask for a Sit, to steady the dog.

From a sit in front of you, take your puppy out to the side:

... starting to take the dog round ...

Getting the dog's attention ...

Then round and back beside your foot.

... back to handler's leg. Brilliant!

... and round just behind ...

If you want your dog to heel on your right, you can train the turn on the other side.

Watch Fudge in her puppy class:

The video shows three short sections of a puppy at a Four Paws class.

  1. Fudge Finger practices her recall – a trainer releases her as her owner calls her.
  2. The recall is used to practice coming away from a quiet, adult dog.
  3. Fudge learns to walk nicely past another puppy.

Fudge Finger graduated to our adult classes. She has passed her Bronze, Silver and Gold Kennel Club Awards. Well done to Pat.
