Recall training

You know what you want, but does your dog understand you? Communication is the key.

Recall training for your dog

Dogs who master this skill, recall, lead fuller, richer, and freer lives because they have the privilege of being off-leash.
Start recall training in a low-distraction environment such as your house or garden.
Only call your dog to you when you are sure he will come back, or you can bring him back or go to get him.
Don’t waste your recall command; no point in calling if he’s ignoring you!

Recall it's not pre-programmed

Teaching your dog to come or recall is not a pre-programmed response.
While it is an instinct for a puppy not to venture too far from the pack, usually, we find that as the puppy gets older and more confident, selective deafness tends to set in.
With that, the previously reliable recall quickly fades too.

Solid recall

A solid recall is a valuable behavior for dogs of all sorts, including dogs who compete in sports, do therapy or assistance work, or provide the helpful service of being someone’s beloved companion.
The better the recall, the safer he is when off-leash, and the more he can enjoy off-leash freedom with his human. One good off-leash hike is worth ten on-leash walks around the block!
