The armband / stick attention heeling training method is shown on Janice’s Puppy/Novice DVD. The heeling method is demonstrated step by step and guides you through each stage. This method of heeling gives the dog a focal point that teaches him to keep his head straight, rather than cranked inward which creates the rear to crab out along with crooked halts. This method has been very successful for Janice and her students. The armbands, holder and stick are now available for purchase.
The armband has a fabric backing with velcro strip to attach the holder. The stick is threaded and screws into the holder. The arm strap on the armband is stretchy velcro for a comfortable and flexible fit. The armbands are extremely well made and will last a very long time with steady use. I personally have one for training, and a clean one I use when I am competing in the ring. The holder and stick are created for me at a machine shop. The stick can be cut back as you progress through your heeling stages.
