I watched this video recently and really liked it. What do you all think?
My male golden doesn't have the best leash manners in the world, and I would love to have him walking by my side. What's odd is this guy never tells the dog to heel, he just turns around when they get in front of him. I tried this with my dog, he walks like a pro in our backyard, but it's more challenging for him on the road. He gets the hang of it after a couple times of turning around, but I just wanted other people's opinions on it.
I like this way better because instead of walking in the other direction you're almost just turning them back around in the right position as they were before, and then moving on. But then again it's a little harder since he isn't used to walking at my side the whole time. The reason I'm going to need him heeling is because he's an unsocialized dog and can show aggression at times. We've been going to a positive reinforcement trainer. She told me that if he's heeling constantly he won't be leading and making all of the decisions himself, like being aggressive, and I'm in more control.
