Wordless Wednesday - almost | Doggy play date.

Recall is vital for all dog owners and it's something that most struggle with, us included. We have been working really hard over the last few months to improve Lottie's recall. She is great when it's just us with very few distraction, but put another dog into the mix and I might as well be shouting to myself. Lottie is improving though and today we meet up with some old doggy friends who we used to go to training class with for a doggy play date

I let Lottie off and she came back when called 90% of the time and actually seemed better when there were other dogs around. As recall is such a tricky command for so many dog owners. I will soon be running a series of posts around recall, including the best tips, how to teach a reliable recall as well as the common misconceptions.

We love to share ideas so please comment below with your best tips for a great recall.

Here are a few photos from today's adventure.

Jessica and Lottie.

  1. Looks like great fun! Shiner has horrible recall, unless there is food involved.

  2. Wow!! Looks like everyone was having a great time! Riley has a great recall, with the only exception of squirrels... grrr, it's very frustrating. But she is getting better, birds are also a distraction, but she will no longer chase, just stop and look :)
