Training Tip of the Week

Having Fun with your Recall

Sometimes a game is a fun way to teach or practice a behaviour with your dog, compared to a defined “training session.” Wanting to get some more work in on your dog’s recall? Play hide and seek in the house with another human friend. Have one friend hold your dog, while the other goes to another part of the house. Signal when you’re ready and release the dog to come find you, then call your pup back to the first person. Practicing this back and forth motion with a reward at each end will help your dog realize its FUN to run to my humans and there’s usually a treat waiting for me when I get there.

Student Spotlight

As in person classes have begin to re-open, we have had the chance to meet some glorious new faces. Look who dove head first in to JV Training’s Level's Program and rocked it! Our Spotlight this week goes to the very talented Lalique the Silken Windhound, who has been flying through her skills and activities. We're so happy to have you with us!
