Test Your Skills - CHALLENGE #2

Hello again!

We hope the first challenge went well for everyone. If it didn’t, post feedback here, and we can offer suggestions!

Challenge #2 is focused on Recall/Come. This is your dog moving towards you, and possibly away from something s/he shouldn’t be doing! :)

When your dog is a bit distracted (inside the house), call his/her name and, once attention is on you, call “Come” in an exciting voice and race in the opposite direction. When your dog gets to you, throw a big “party” with treats and praise! Continue this chase game until your dog doesn’t hesitate at all when hearing that recall word (“come”).

The second part of this challenge is to complete it outside on leash! Use the same process as above, but this time, your dog will remain on leash.

Good luck, and we look forward to hearing your feedback!

Happy training,
Teacher’s Pet Training Academy
