BACK AWAY RECALL

There are lots of ways to build a great recall.

One game you can play involves waiting for your dog to look at you before quickly backing up so that they follow.

Let your dog explore on their lead or long line and when they naturally look up at you, start backing away and enthusiastically encouraging your dog to move towards you. As soon as they start to come, excitedly praise them and when they get close, reward them with something they love.

Practice lots and your dog will be rapidly running back to you every time. You can then add a cue word of your choice. Simply say the cue chosen cue as soon as your dog looks at you, before you start moving.

Remember to keep training sessions short and fun.
