The Flip Finish in Heeling with Forrest Micke

The Flip Finish in Heeling with Forrest Micke

Monday, April 6th marks the next start date for our interactive Heeler's Toolbox I, beginner class. The Heeler's Toolbox is a 3 part series of online courses taught by Forrest Micke. The beginner class is going to lay the ground work for the behaviors that Forrest is demonstrating in this video, which was taken from the advanced course.

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.

Leerburg's Online Teaching Engagement Skills Course

I thought the class was well thought out and well organized. I like that it was broken down into little bits of information that were easy to digest. The segments built on the previous ones.

I appreciated that I could take the class at my own pace, as I really had trouble finding two full weeks to give to it, but was able to stretch it out and still view all the materials and work with my dog on the different skills. We are already making significant progress.

Well worth the money. I have already been recommending the class to other dog owners who have engagement issues.

Question: Will Grand Flex help my GSD's digestive issues?

Hi Cindy,

My GSD has had a hard time keeping a solid stool and she does not digest chicken at all. I have had her on a diet of Orijen fish food and she can keep a semi soft stool.

My questions is, will grand flex upset her tummy?


Ed's Response:

I honestly don't know if your dog will tolerate this or not, every dog is different. Some of my dogs have had some gas issues on Grand Flex. When I have a dog with a sensitive system I introduce any changes very gradually. Think a tiny sprinkle on the food for a number of days and then gradually increase.

Have you had your dog's pancreatic enzyme levels checked? If a dog can't digest their food properly I always feel that exocrine pancreatic insufficiency should be ruled out. You can ask your vet to run a TLI test.

I hope this helps.

On Leerburg's Leather Prong Collar Leash

  My wife and I rescued a 1 1/2 yr. old GSD 2 years ago. She was very strong minded and pulled on lead on our walks, constantly getting corrections. I bought a Prong Collar and the Leather Prong Collar Leash from Leerburg and the walks became a pleasure instead of constant battle. Just the slight correction from the prong is all that was needed to get her attention when she started to pull. Not only does she not pull on our walks but while hiking she will stop on steep hills until I give her command to continue. Great products. I also purchased the Soft Grip Prong Collar Leash for those days we walk in the rain or snow.
