Reliable Recall Tips

Discover our top tips to improve your walks

Do you spend your walks calling after your dog, trying to get them back on a lead?

You thought walks would be the most enjoyable part of living with a dog but currently they're an embarrassment!

It's not quite the lifestyle you were planning and it's easier to stay away from other people and dogs than keep apologising for disturbing them.

Don't panic - it's pretty common!
Not coming back when called is probably one of the most common areas we help people improve with their dogs.
Let's face it, NOT chasing birds, following smells and exploring is quite unnatural, so from our dogs perspective - why stop having fun and doing what dogs do best?

There are many quick fixes out there, but none are more successful than training spending time strengthening your relationship and teaching your dog to want to hang out near you and return when asked to.

What if I told you there were better ways to tackle recall than just shouting and getting cross!
The key to improving recall is to understand:

WHY your dog doesn't come back

WHAT to do to prevent the situation
