2nd Annual ESBC: 2014 - Week 2 - Recalls!
We are heading back to foundation work, with recalls! We wanted to make sure this wasn’t just your average “training session” so we found some recall games to play with your pup! We really want you to have fun with this one, because it’s so important, it’s important for your dog to enjoy coming when called. The best way to do that is very high rewards. If you are constantly calling your dog to come, then putting them in the crate, or stopping play, they’re going to stop doing their recalls. Make sure to keep this in mind when training!
MultiAnimalcrakers - This is a variety of different recall games she plays with her dogs, including through the legs, recall all hand touch, & recall to play. There is also a brief description of each game for clarification.
Pam’s Dog Academy: Quick & Easy Recalls: w/ Clicker - More of a traditional method of teaching recalls with a clicker.

Tips: Making recalls fun is the single most important advise I can give you. Make sure your dogs world is not ending (aka you’re stopping the fun)
