If you're not already a member of a Schutzhund/IPO club then the best thing would be to start there.

The foundation of the heel work is basically hand luring with food as a puppy transitioning into ball under the arm. How he gets the legs to kick up like that I don't know.

I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. He's not a very good communicator/teacher with people and on top of that he's no even aware of how he does things most of the time. I work with him every day and I still don't really understand everything he does.
Ahhhhhh gotcha well this is my first gsd and man do I love him I started training since day one and now he is three months old but I don't wanna overload all the training and confuse him

Your dad is a jewel! Are there many clubs in your area? Are you working dogs too? Sorry for all the questions, we don't see too many IPO people from the UK on the board!

Ybdiesel, there is a good place to watch video's inexpensively(if you are US based)
bowwowflix. And yes, get with a club to help you!

Wow the dog looks so happy and looks like his only goal in life is to make his owner happy. They have a great connection.

Yeah I'm currently training 3 females, one of which dad trained as a puppy but gave to me because he was too busy with Kai and I trained the mother of my main current dog.

I've posted this before but this is my main dog at the moment, Vislor Antilly (and daughter of Kai, can you tell? :P)

The following two videos are of me and Anti's mother, Carlsbro Quinta


This is a bit of a montage of all my dogs that I made for film and TV producers to try and get more film and TV work with the dogs

And finally this is my other female, Notspol Gilly, when she was being trained by dad as a puppy. I'll hopefully be doing IPO 1 with her early next year.

I've had a few young males from our last litter that have gone into the Police or Prison Service but thats pretty much it for dogs I've worked myself. On top of that I do a lot of pet dog training at our place just to make money.
