AROUND TO POSITION

When walking with your dog it is helpful to be able to cue them to return to your side by moving around behind you. This can help untangle the lead and reset your dog if they get excited and start to pull.

To start you can lure with treats or use a hand target to guide your dog from standing in front of you, to move behind you and finish off in your normal walking position. As your dog gets good at this, you can reduce the hand signal or attach a verbal cue to signal your dog to move around you. You can even practice this in both directions so that you are ready for all eventualities.

After teaching your dog in a quiet location, be sure to also practice in a variety of situations with increased distractions.

This will help ensure your dog is ready to use their new skill, no matter where you are.
