Sunday, we practiced our doggy recall.
(Coming back to Mom when called.)
Mostly, this training is for a certain little Lakie, who gets very hard of hearing when off leash.
Tegan and Samson ran around the snowy tennis courts and came back to the sound of a squeaky toy and got a treat.
I (Wyatt) have perfect recall, so I got to watch.
We will keep practicing everyday.
Tegan is daft.
Tegan has to learn, if she wants to go back to the beach!
Wyatt, strangely, my new sister Osa has a very good recall when off leash. She still isn't completely housebroken but comes when called. What's wrong with this picture???ReplyDelete
We terriers, are sort of good at recall--if there's nothing more exciting happening. Then we're deaf, even if there is a treat involved!ReplyDelete
Neither of us has perfect recall but that is also why we are never let off leash except in our own yard.ReplyDelete
Yuppers, I'm with the terriers from down under ~ I'll come if there isn't a good sniff, or something interesting.....heheheReplyDelete
Wyatt, you are an inspiration. I only come back when I feel like it, so I am ALWAYS on the leash when we go fur walks.ReplyDelete

But Wyatt, you must be more understanding. Tegan is clear one of those dogs whose hearing is dependent on being connected to her leash when outdoors.ReplyDelete
I have to bear that too... the staff ponders about the secret recall-code what will work for me. Easy's was: the postman is there... no idea by now what mine will be :o)ReplyDelete
Recall? What does that mean?!ReplyDelete
I'm not very good at obey ANY orders...unless there's TREATS involved!ReplyDelete

Keep working at it, Tegan! We know you can do it - especially if there are treats involvedReplyDelete
I have selective hearing issues too. I hear pop tops on cans only....
Hugs madi your bfff
PS but for a trip to the beach I'd probably clean out my ears
SomePup needs those same lessons. She is never off leash other than in our fenced yard, but SHE doesn't always come when she is called.ReplyDelete
Woos - Lightning, the good one:)
I've got great recall, unless I see a tree rat!ReplyDelete
