I just brought home an 8 week old puppy of working lines and I want to get involved in an activity that will stimulate his mind once he gets older. The breeder works her dogs in schH and says he would be suited for any dog sport. I've researched the schH a lot and I'm not certain I want to go that route. I've looked into obedience as well and think that may better suit me. I've looked for a local club, and found one but haven't contacted them yet. Is there anything I can do to help start him on the right foot? Specifically, I've never trained a dog to do a heads-up heel, is there a particular method to make that come easier?
