What is recall?

What is recall?

Recall is one of the main things dogs need to be taught before being allowed off the lead.

It is an important training behaviour for basic obedience for when we need to have our dogs come back to us.

Recall is vital for safety as you may need to call them away from a hazard or to get them back to avoid them running off.

Reward based training

Reward based training

How do we train? We are a reward based training team. This means we will never ask you to use fear, pain or any type of aversive to control your dog’s behaviour. We focus on making the behaviours we want more appealing than the ones we want less of, and in so we more of what we want and less of what we don’t.

Why do we train in this way? By focusing on rewarding and not punishing, we help build our dogs confidence and strengthen our relationship with them in the process.

Marking and rewarding

Marking and rewarding

Marking and rewarding is a feedback system that we use to communicate with our dogs when working with positive reinforcement. A marker is simply a cue (normally audio) that lets our dogs know the exact moment they did something that then leads to a reward.

Timing is key. Mark the exact moment your dog performs the behaviour you want and then reward after to make things as clear as possible. We generally use food as our primary means of rewarding. High value treats work best, which can be different for each dog.
