Steph Marhle-Mishra of Good Karma Dog Training demonstrates with a pitbull terrier mix, how the “heel” command can be simply taught and used to enjoy a calm walk. The heel command is a formal obedience exercise in which a dog walks precisely by a handler’s knee, matching her pace and immediately sitting when the handler halts. Nala, the pitbull terrier mix used for this demonstration had no experience with this command. Dog training is a process. It is not always pretty. It is absolutely NOT perfect. Dog training is not about perfection. It is about calm persistence. Watch right here, how Steph teaches Nala how to heel which changes the lives of everyone in the pack. Steph is totally aware she was chewing gum during the filming of this video. You’ll notice in future videos Steph does not chew gum while filming. We apologize for the distracting chewing in the video. Thank you for your understanding in advance. 🙂
