This is an example (first attempt) at initiating an Emergency Stop. This is a very important command as it could very easily save him/her from being badly injured, dying, or getting lost. Training your dog to emergency stop is no more difficult than teaching him to drop on recall. But it will take time and patience, and a large supply of his favourite treats.
This is an advanced example of Restrained recall without a long line just a harness. Recalls are a valuable foundational training behaviour that can be used as a building block for changing other behaviour issues, such as teaching an overly excited dog to calm down when playing with other dogs, or as the first step in getting your dog’s attention before you ask him to do something else.
Teaching your puppy or older dog to heel can be easy and fun. Use this directed shaping technique to help your dog learn to love to walk beside you. This is a first attempt with Milo.
