Mastering the Art of Walking on a Heel: Tips for Using a Hands-Free Leash with Your Puppy

Walking on a heel is an essential skill for any well-behaved puppy, but it can be a challenging behavior to master. In this blog post, we'll explore how to use a hands-free leash to train your puppy to walk on a heel like a pro!

First, What are the benefits of having a hands-free leash?

  1. Increased mobility: With a hands-free leash, you'll have both hands free to use hand signals and gestures to communicate with your puppy. This can make it easier to guide your puppy and train them to walk on a heel.

  2. Improved control: A hands-free leash can give you greater control over your puppy's movements, making it easier to guide them into the correct position for walking on a heel.

  3. Reduced strain: A hands-free leash can help reduce strain on your arms and shoulders by distributing the weight of the leash more evenly across your body.

  4. Hands-free convenience: With a hands-free leash, you can carry items like treats or waste bags more easily, without having to worry about holding onto a leash at the same time.

Step-by-Step Guide: Training Your Puppy to Walk on a Heel with a Hands-Free Leash

  2. Choose the right leash: Make sure to choose a hands-free leash that is appropriate for your puppy's size and breed. It should be comfortable for both you and your puppy to wear.

  4. Use positive reinforcement: Reward your puppy with treats and praise when they walk on a heel correctly. This will encourage them to repeat the behavior. 

  5. Start slow: Begin with short training sessions of 5-10 minutes and gradually increase the length of time and the level of distractions.

  6. Be patient: Training a puppy to walk on a heel takes time and patience. Don't get frustrated if your puppy doesn't get it right away. Keep practicing and be consistent with your training.

By following these tips and using a hands-free leash, you and your puppy can master the art of walking on a heel in no time. Remember to be patient, consistent, and always reward good behavior, and soon you'll be enjoying stress-free walks with your well-trained companion by your side.
