Camden's Mom Posted April 4, 2014 Report Share Posted April 4, 2014 I'm looking for ideas on how to train my dog (in a formal way) to stay in close proximity to me when he's off leash. As of right now he's got a good recall, listens well, stays in sight and checks in often. He will also walk "in line" (our loose heel) when I instruct him to. Honestly, he's got a lot of great off leash skills, but I'd really like to train a command to stay within a certain radius (let's say 10 feet) without having to be in a heel. The problem is, if he isn't in a heel he's usually zooming around like a maniac. I can keep calling him back to me but he'll run up, "check in" and then zoom off again. I'm curious if there is a step by step way to train this behavior. I looked online but didn't have much luck... any ideas or training video links would be much appreciated!
