Video of Bane at 6 months
 
Working with Bane a little....I still need to get my delivery/hand placement better...It feels weird to me when rewarding him while he is heeling,,.I should of used my left hand instead of coming across with my right....I think....I'll keep trucking along

Banes a great looking pup! I think you are doing great with him. I love his little bark and hold on you he does when you don't treat fast enough.

I have so much too learn...Main thing I have focused on, is eye contact and focus. The club we just started going to should help my learning curve.

Nice pup!!! Doing well. Only thing, and it's handler error, quit dropping treats or make them smaller. He takes a lot time disengaged searching the ground for dropped goodies and he has to chew a bit what you gave him.

Also, I would reward and break quicker. Very short correct session interspersed with play.

All in all, he is looking great for such a young pup!!!!

How do you start teaching this?

I would be careful about rewarding when the dog is barking at you. That behavior can really get out of control where the dog is constantly barking while it is working. Other suggestions people made were very good, particularly short correct sessions with exciting breakaway play to keep dog up and engaged. Your observation about feeding with your left hand while teaching the heel is spot on, particularly if you plan on competing. As you probably know, placement of reward plays a big part in position so you will encourage crabbing in the heel if you reward across your body (using your right hand). Nice job, nice dog!

The majority of the time when you hear him barking, I'm saying speak. He will at times go through the motions and try speaking when not told to...I ignore it. I'm guilty of also rewarding him for speaking without being told to do so. But I have been ignoring his barking when not told to do so for a while now... I def don't want that to become a problem.

I'm still trying to get a feel for hand placement on the heel....I do plan on competing with him...I'm horrible about dropping treats also...Haha....Thanks for pointing these things out...That's why I have my wife or 4 year old video it, so my mistakes can be observed by forum members. Thank you much for the input
