A reliable recall is one of the most important safety behaviors we can teach the dogs in our lives, and in emergency situations. When we need our recall to work, we really need it to work!
Course will help you if you have a new puppy in your life and want to get off on the right paw with your recall training. But also adolescent dog who seems to have recently forgotten you exist and an older dog who used to have a great recall, but isn’t always quite so responsive these days, this class will be great for you.
- Do you wish your dog would come back when you called?
- Does your dog come back most of the time, but not quite all the time, and often not when it really matters?
- Do you wish your dog would stay closer to you and not run off in the first place?
- Does your dog run back to you when you call, but then immediately take off again?
We will cover a ton of fun information to help you and the dogs in your lives build a stronger connection while focusing on building recall behaviors and other behaviors to keep you and your dog connected and in close proximity to one another.
Skills and concepts we will focus on include;
➡ Assessing motivation
➡ How an understanding of classical conditioning, operant conditioning, the matching law, and the Premack principle can help us build strong recalls
➡ Teaching automatic check ins
➡ Beginning at the end – back chain your recall
➡ Emergency recall vs every day recall
➡ Walk with me recall (using Leslie McDevitt’s 1-2-3 from Control ➡ UnleashedTM)
➡ From inside to outside and beyond, games to build fluency
