Come back! – A reliable recall class

Exercises and Games to introduce off-leash training and Teach Reliable Recall 

 

Recall or coming when called is one of the most important behaviors you can teach your dog.  It can also be difficult to achieve full reliability due to the number of distractions our dogs need to ignore when called, and finding the right motivations to make it happen.

This class will teach you the rules for reliable recall as well as fun games to play with your dog to make them more motivated and more reliable in coming back to you.  Some topics we will focus on:


  • Creating more engagement between you and your dog to create a dog who checks in with you.
  • Working within the rules of reliable recall to build a better recall and a dog who wants to return to you by knowing when to call, when not to call, when to reward, what your dog will consider rewarding or not rewarding in different situations.
  • Building and generalizing your dog’s reliability at different distances and distraction levels.
  • Creating excitement around recall to get your dog to come back to you at full speed


This class will be taught outdoors in McGolrick Park on long leads to keep your dog safe while allowing for recalls at distances up to 30 feet away.  Long leads will be available for use in class.
