How to train your dog to walk to heel

One of the most common problem dog owners face is out on the walk. Dogs pull due to excitement, because they feel unsafe, to get to food, to toilet, to avoid weather conditions or because they think they are in charge and so decide the direction and speed of the walk.

That is why I recorded this video: a step by step guide to get your dog to walk beside you, starring Ruby and Milly. Ruby and Milly are two very enthusiastic, untrained chocolate labradors. Enjoy!


My goal is to better the lives of one million dogs in my lifetime. It is clearly impossible for me to do this on a one to one basis. I have seen that with around every thousand views on my videos, I get a comment or email thanking me and letting me know the video has helped. So working on that basis, I have to make videos on how to address every problem
behaviour and accumulate ONE billion views in order to help 1,000,000 dogs.

You can help me reach #onemilliondogs by (1) subscribing to my channel and (2) give this video a thumbs up – so YouTube suggests this video to more dog owners and we can help 1,000,000 dogs all over the world. Thank you so much!
