Reliable Recalls

Does your dog come to you when you callhappy running dog him? What if another playful dog,
or a fluffy squirrel, was running nearby? Does he dance just out of reach when it is time to head home from the dog park? Does he sheepishly walk towards you, or does he come running at a full sprint when called? If your dog’s recall is anything other than fast and reliable – 100% of the time - than this workshop is for you! You will be taken through exercises that will help you learn how to best motivate your dog during training, and how to help your dog overcome difficult distractions. During the workshop you will work with your dog as you learn the foundation and recall training exercises that will be the key to building a fast reliable recall.

A crate is highly recommended.   If you cannot bring a crate, please be prepared to leave your dog in your vehicle for the first 30 minutes of this workshop.
