Recall training

For me recall and loose leash walking are two of the toughest things to train and I see a lot of posts asking how to train. Thought I'd post an update on our progress.

This was our first post:
Puppy recall training

Here is where we are now. Now please notice, although she is off leash at a safe place, there aren't any distractions. I'm not 100% positive I could get a good recall if a person or dog were nearby. She was 4 months here. We continue to play recall games, hide and seek, and do about 5 recalls a day at least.

Loose leash has been the hardest thing with me for Jaina - but she gets a bit better every time. It's not necessarily her fault, so much as mine - I just need to invest more time/energy into it. Her recall is - and always has been, and always will be - perfect. We tested her in Pet Smart (staff approved, of course) and I can call her from the other side of the store - she comes running (and then slides into a sit).

Thanks for the post, Colleen

Roses are grey,
Violets are grey,
Everything is grey,
Because Jaina's a dog.
