Precision Heeling Workshop

February 11

9:00 am PT

This talk is eligible for CEUs from: IAABC, KPA


Done well, precision heeling is a beautiful dance between engaged partners. This presentation is all about getting you off on the right foot; structuring your dog to “find” the correct position and then adding in tiny bits of complexity; a bit of sideways and backward and eventually, off you go!

The method used will be Denise’s popular “pocket hand” technique and requires no props or prior experience for either the handler or the dog. In this working presentation, you will be given foundation steps that can you can use right away, as well as several additional steps to tackle over the coming weeks and months.

And if you already have heeling but it’s not quite what you’re looking for? This presentation is an excellent opportunity to clean up your work!

Presented By:

Denise Fenzi

Denise (she/her) has titled dogs in obedience (AKC and UKC), tracking (AKC and schutzhund), schutzhund (USA), mondioring (MRSA), herding (AKC), conformation (AKC), and agility (AKC). She has two AKC obedience champions, perfect scores in both schutzhund and Mondio ringsport obedience, and is well known for her flashy and precise obedience work.

While a successful competitor, Denise’s real passion lies in training dogs and solving the problems that her own dogs and her students’ dogs present. She is a recognized expert in developing drive, motivation and focus in competition dogs, and is known internationally as an engaging speaker and an expert in no-force training for sport dogs. She has consistently demonstrated the ability to train and compete with dogs using motivational methods in sports where compulsion is the norm.

Denise thoughtfully and persistently works to break down the barriers that prevent people from obtaining a truly interactive and mutually enjoyable sport relationship with their dogs. Fenzi Dog Sports Academy is the culmination of her efforts in providing progressive information to any trainer who wishes to learn.

In 2021, Denise started a new online program specifically for High Drive Dogs – check out!
