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. Games are also a great way to keep busy during the winter months!

Student Spotlight

Oliver is an absolute rockstar who has come SO far in his training and wows us every time we see him. His enthusiasm and wonderfully happy personality makes training with him a breeze Congratulations Ollie and Brandy - we are SO proud of you both!
