The hard part about off leash heeling is making the dog understand it needs to stay next to you and not run off to explore. Inside the house looks great but I'd train outside. Train the behavior where you're actually going to use it.

No competitions, but service training. We used to practice at the dog park, through all of the dogs...... But a few bad owners later, we decided not to go back. I will work with her outside today though

Thewretched That's more due to camera-shy-ness, normally there is a correct mark

gsdsar It's a bit short to really tell. The one thing I noticed, silence. Not a word of encouragement from you. Not even when you rewarded at the end.

At this age, the second she was in the right position, I would mark with a "yes", then reward. Rinse repeat. Make it fun, let her know when she is correct.

4 month old heel.

We have been working on mishkas heel.... Her on- leash heel is amazing, but I wondered how you guys thing she is coming along with her off-leash heel. I know her position is still a bit off, but I am working on perfection. She can heel for a lot longer... I just didn't have time to upload a longer video tonight
