Recall Class

Imagine having a dog that came running  each and every time you called!

Imagine not having to worry about calling your dog off deer or away from the highway.

Need to leave the dog park?  Just call, your dog will come.  Unbelieveable?  Nope, it IS possible.

6 week class (first week is without the dogs)

Here's what Penny's owner had to say:

"Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?....I decided to put my (almost) 2 year old female Wheaten into a second recall class of Jeanne's--because my dog needed more work in this area, because I tend to work more often with her if I'm in class and because the class was offered at a convenient time....Before the class, she did well in a controlled environment but the minute she was outside and out of my reach,anything with HER reach became a toy and the 'come-chase me' game was on.  After the second class,we faced the ultimate challenge...We were visiting at a home with a year that isn't fenced, beside a lake filled with geese and ducks.  Penny got out the door and bolted for the beach, upsetting a gaggle of geese.  ONce htey had flown out of range, she spied some ducks further down the beach and on her way to the ducks, she passed by a dead carp on the sand.  She picked it up .....I called her name....She hesitated and looked at me--dead fish drooping down either side of her beard.  She slowly put the fish down, still looking at me.  I assumed the 'chase me' recall position.  She came at me at a full gallop--all the way down the beach, up the lawn, and into a big fun 'chase-Mom' game.

Why?  because we had been again working on all the fun games from recall class and that habit or muscle memory of reactive positively when her name is called is so ingrained in her.

Jeanne offers so many different classes that it is easy for an owner to get swept up in moving along the progression.  But there is value in repetition...I'm so glad I repeated the recall class.....AND even more, there is so much value that comes from spending positive fun-filled time with your dog!"
