Let’s start with the most basic command of all, the heel command. Teaching a dog to

heel is the fundamental first step in teaching the dog to walk properly on the leash. The

proper place for the dog to walk is at your side, neither lagging behind nor straining to

get ahead.

If your dog begins to forge ahead on the lead, gently tug on the leash. This will cause

the training collar to tighten and give the dog a gentle reminder to fall back into line. If

the dog begins to lag behind, gently urge him forward. A lure or toy is a good tool for

the dog that constantly lags behind.

Once the dog is consistently walking at your side, try to change your pace and

encouraging the dog to match his pace with yours. It should always be the dog who

adjusts his pace to you; you should never adjust your pace to meet the needs of the dog.
