Keeping Heeling Novel

Keeping Heeling Novel
with Forrest Micke

Keeping heeling novel, challenging, and exciting allows us to create a greater love for the activity itself. We can then rely less on forms of primary reinforcement to gain and maintain the motivation we want for the activity. If we continue to challenge our dogs through different experiences, they will develop a true desire to learn. That desire allows us to overcome obstacles within our heeling work. By making these novel experiences rewarding to the dog, the heeling experience becomes richer, the work becomes cleaner, and the relationship between dog and handler becomes deeper.

This video is just one of many things that will be expanded on throughout Forrest Micke's Advanced Heeling online course. If you are interested in learning more, the next class starts Monday, January 26th. Read more information on what will be covered in this course.

Leerburg's Online Teaching Engagment Skills Course

This course was PERFECT! From novice to pro this course can benefit both. Forrest is very easy to learn from. He has a way of not only Engaging a dog but also a human. The video's along with the written text were a very helpful tool. I do hope that this course comes out on DVD so that I can purchase it and have it on hand when I need it. It never hurts to revist something that you once learned. I found that even though I knew, I also was failing in a few areas and now can repair them and have better success.

Ask your training question

Question: I started the raw diet about a month ago and my dogs are doing well except that they eat very fast & swallow their food whole. Is there any way to get them to slow down?

I have 2 huskies, one is 10 months old and the other is 2 months. I started feeding them raw chicken necks and backs about a month ago and they took to it well, but they eat it too fast. They're eating the necks whole without chewing and they can down 3 necks in matter of seconds. Any way to get them to slow down?

Cindy's Response:

I would either feed larger pieces that force them to chew or grind their food. Itís actually normal for dogs to bolt their food down, but if the food you are feeding is a choking hazard Iíd recommend grinding or feeding chunks too big to swallow without a lot of chewing.

If you donít have these books, Iíd suggest adding them to your library... Raw Dog Food and Natural Nutrition for Dogs & Cats. We used to give both these books to our puppy customers and rarely had questions about the diet. One of the newer feeding books we offer is Raw & Natural Nutrition for Dogs. This title covers homemade cooked & raw diets complete with recipes. I highly recommend all these books.
