Dog Recall Training

Training your Dog for Recall

What do we really mean when we talk about recall?

Recall is about your dog coming back, every time you call, regardless of distractions. We need to know that when we call our dog, they will come running back to us.

Generally, for new pups and food motivated dogs, in the early days, food rewards will work well, but as time goes on, for some dogs, especially around distractions you need to find something of much more value.

Find your dog’s motivators

Without the right motivator, your dog is unlikely to deliver the behaviour you ask for.

As your dog reaches adolescence, or as your dog becomes more settled and familiar with you, you need to work hard on recall by ‘building your tool kit.’ See our training bags to put your ‘tool kit’ in.

Dog’s learn by patterns and habits. 3 times running off to play with other dogs, or chasing a squirrel when you’ve called them, and your dog is starting to get choices about what to do when you call. Read more about recall here.
