Walk around a large room or up and down a hallway inside the house. Call your dog’s name and point to the side you want him to walk on, whichever side you choose. If you have a dog that walks on all fours, you may want to try a different approach.
If you are using a walker, place the leash in front of the dog so he can’t turn around and get away from you. You can also place your hand on his back to help guide him.

Why is it important to teach your dog to heel?
The purpose of teaching a dog to heel is that the dog learns to pay attention to you. If your dog doesn’t heel when you walk, it’s a sign that he’s not paying attention. If he does heel, he may be trying to get away from you, which is not a good thing. It’s also a bad sign for your relationship with him.
He may not want to walk with you because he thinks you’re not interested in him, or he might be afraid that you’ll hurt him if he tries to run away. In either case, you should try to teach him that heel-walking is an acceptable way for him to behave.
What are the 7 basic dog commands?
A good dog should respond to seven directions in order to become a good citizen: Sit, Down, Stay, Walk, Come, Go, Play, and Come Back. Puppies should also be able to follow commands such as sit, down, stay, walk, come, go, play, or come back. They should not be afraid of people or other animals, but they should be wary of other dogs and cats.
Puppies need to be taught how to behave in a variety of situations, including when they are left alone, in the house, on a leash, at a petting zoo, with other puppies or kittens, etc. This is a very important skill for a puppy to learn. It is also important to teach the puppy that it is OK to play with people and other pets, as long as they do not get too close to him or her.
A puppy should never be allowed to run away from a person or another dog or cat, even if he or she does not want to. The puppy must learn that he is not a threat to anyone or anything. He must also learn not to jump up and down on people’s laps or on the floor.
What age to teach a dog to heel?

Should a dog always heel?
Dogs do not need to Heel at all times but it is a very valuable command and I recommend that all dogs learn and use this command. If you have a dog that is not used to being Heeled, it can be very difficult for him to learn to do it correctly. If he does not know how to use the command, then he will not be able to perform it properly.
This is especially true if the dog has been trained to heel at the beginning of the training session. It is very important that you teach your dog the correct way of Heeling. The best way to teach him is to have him sit on the floor with his back against the wall and his legs straight out in front of him. He should then stand up on his hind legs and walk around the room.
Once he is standing up, he should turn his head to the side and look down at his feet. When he looks down, the heel command should be given. You can then repeat this process with the other side of his body.
