Heeling is a behavior that is taught in pieces and then put back together to form a final product. The Flip Finish being demonstrated in this video is a prime example of that. The skills that go into this finish start with the foundation work taught in the first course. By the time students work through to the advanced course, their dogs will have all of the necessary skill sets to create this finished behavior.
The Heeler's Toolbox is offered as 3 interactive online courses. Interactive courses have a few features that set them apart from any other online training program available. Our interactive courses allow for a hands on approach to online dog training. Through features such as student video uploads, Leerburg is able to put Forrest Micke directly into your living room or back yard. Students are able to upload videos directly from their smart phone or tablet into the course. Forrest will then review and provide feedback on the training in the student videos. This allows students to listen to the instructor’s advice, re-watch their video, and fine tune their skills.
Along with student video uploads, interactive courses have a weekly live chat session. This allows students to talk with Forrest and ask any questions about that week’s material in a real time setting. If students are unable to attend live chats, they will be recorded and posted back into the weekly discussion forums. The discussion forums will also be monitored by Forrest which provides a great place to ask any questions that did not come up in the live chat.
