RETURN TO SIDE

Sometimes when out walking with your dog you will want to call them back to your side from in front.

One way to do this involves prompting your dog to move beside you before turning to face forward.

To teach your dog to do this you can use luring or targeting. Guide your dog using a large signal at first to move to your side and turn to face forward.

Mark and reward as soon as your dog is in position.

After some practice you will be able to reduce the size of the signal you give to your dog and add a verbal cue if you’d like to.

Make sure to practice in a variety of quiet environments first, before taking their new skill out to busier locations.
