Interesting, but I'm not ready to enroll yet


The Heeler's Toolbox is a series of classes with a comprehensive curriculum focusing on beginner, intermediate, and advanced obedience skills and techniques essential to any competitive obedience team. This series focuses heavily on both How to teach powerful, precise, and elegant heeling work and Why the itemized skills and concepts are a benefit to any serious competitive partnership. Each course is facilitated by the instructor for 5, however, the material remains available to students for 52 weeks.


The Heeler's Toolbox / Advanced is a five module course detailing the evolution of our foundation heeling skills into more advanced precision heeling concepts. Each module will be dedicated to the breakdown, discussion, and application of a different Intermediate skill. Skills covered in the Advanced class include: Advanced Perch Work, Basic to Advanced Footwork and Patterns, Indirect Reward Systems,  Value Transfer Concepts, and Piece Work & Sequences. Class will be a mix of online peer discussion, written lecture, video lecture, and video homework assignments (students will be required to film their training for some portions of the class). This class is neither graded or pass / fail.


Advanced trainers who have taken the previous Heeler's Toolbox classes and who want to fine-tune their heeling skills.


Students should have taken Heeler's Toolbox I and II, or have an intermediate understanding of the concepts of heeling.

Course Outline


"I have to say that this series of courses was fantastic. My heeling with my dog had completely stagnated, but these exercises and techniques put us back on the right track, and my dog's focused heeling is now beautiful. Obviously they're a bit pricey, but well worth the money. I recommend the Heeler's Toolbox series to anyone needing a bit of refinement in their heeling work, or people just starting out at the beginning. The focus exercises that Forrest provides in the first course are also fantastic for any obedience work, and have worked well for myself, my clients, and friends I've shared them with. I look forward to continuing to use these techniques with new dogs I train, as these methods seem to work for any type of dog."
