...i could teach my dog true attention heeling!!!!!!! how is this taught? through food or a ball? and at what age can one expect their dog to actually achieve this? i mean the dog is completely focused on its handler and adjusts to the handlers position. nothing is more impressive to me then this. i could see myself eventually teaching my dog to down, stay, sit, etc in a field but this type of heeling seems unachievable. most dogs would just sniff the grass and explore. how is such focus achieved? does anyone have any tips? how much time is required to shape the dog into this position? the dog in the video is about 1.5 yrs old.
anyone with actual experience have any tips? if i could achieve heeling like the one in that youtube video, my life would seriously be complete.
