Does this sound like you?
So, you're wanting to get into doing obedience competitions with your dog, but you don't know where to start. You don't know where to start or how to get your dog to look like those other dogs in the ring!
In fact when your dog looks at you you can see the look of "oh no here we go again" in their eyes. And they just end up going off sniffing. You just don't know what to do anymore! Surely it can't be that hard! You're feeling frustrated, exasperated and pretty much ready to give up!
What do you want?
I know you want to know the secrets to having more fun with your dog. Eventually getting to the ring would be nice too. But it's like everyone else knows something you don't.
You know your dog can do it. But why can't you + your dog work together? Why can't your dog just "get it"! Seriously, it's not rocket surgery! You've seen some of the people who compete and you know you + your dog can beat them! If only you can find your groove! But feels like it's a treasure in the deepest depths at bottom of the ocean and then burried under a 100 tonnes of lead that you just can't seem to reach!
Let Me Tell You About Someone Who Felt Just Like You...
OK, I could tell you my story with Kaz the German Shepherd. Or the story of Estelle + Dante the Staffy. But instead I'm going to tell you about Danielle + Rosie the Greyhound. I'm telling you their story because you and I both know that Greyhounds aren't really known for doing well in the show ring. And yet, they're winning!
They didn't start out winning. Like everyone else, they started struggling. But, with a bit of guidance from me, Danielle and Rosie got over their slump and started to not only enjoy working together, but Rosie started LOVING training! She finally understood what Danielle wanted. And now, they've even been selected for the regional team!
They're no different from you and me. The only difference is that they have learned to work together - and you can learn to work with your dog too! And I can help you!
What People Are Saying About The Competitive Edge?
"Without Luzelle, I would have never thought I could train my greyhound to compete. She showed me the how and why. And Now, we're kicking ass in the ring!" - Danielle + Rosie (Greyhound)
"When we started training with Luzelle, things were different. The training was different to what we'd been told to do before. Dante started enjoying training a lot more and actually got excited about training! He's started excitedly offering behaviours on his own and trying to find what I want, whereas before he would just huff when it was training time" - Estelle + Dante the Staffy
"I wanted to thank you for all your help in the beginning stages of my Obedience journey with Era. We entered two trials today and took out first in both! I definitely wouldn't have been anywhere near as good without your guidance!" - Shanice + Era the Border Collie
Yes, these are just 3 of the people we've helped so far in their competition journey! And this could be your story too! but only if you're ready to stop feeling frustrated and not getting anywhere and actually start working with your dog!

OK... so the way I'm going to cover heeling it's going to sound more like a chore than a trick... but trust me, it's not a chore... but there are a lot of little things to keep in mind...
This is the detailed breakdown. You can do as much or as little of this as you like... there are no rules... your dog, your training... but I'm your guide and this is your library. I want as many resources in your library as possible... so here goes...
Some of these exercises are covered elsewhere in The Competitive Edge.
Teaching Heeling correctly requires quite a few steps:
Then Start on Behaviour Chains. Start with 2 Behaviours, then move to 3 behaviours and so on and so forth. If your dog messes up a behaviour in the chain go back and work on that behaviour.
Then start on interval training... but don't worry, I'll cover all that...
