Recall Training

Does your V need to brush up on his/her recall skills?

1. Go find a nice, big field of grass at a park

2. Take someone else with you

3. Each person should stand about a hundred feet apart with treats

4. Call the dog back and forth and give out lots of treats

(If your dog has questionable recall, please do this with a 30ft long-lead attached to your dog's collar and let them drag it. Riley's recall is about 95% on a bad day, so we trust her off-leash.)

Reuben and I have been brushing up on Riley's recall skills, plus we throw in some extra commands to keep her interested. You can see Reuben having Riley do some sit-stays in the video. :)
