My recall course is designed to teach dog owners how to train their dogs to be reliable and under control when off lead in public; to come back to their owner when called, no matter what distractions there are in the environment.
This will mean that walks are relaxing, fun, safe and enjoyable for both the dog and owner; as well as ensuring that the dog is getting good, free running exercise which is great for their fitness. A well exercised dog is a pleasure to live with!
This is a 3 week course. Each session is for half an hour. We will learn new skills in each session. We run the training sessions in a secure field at Thompson House Equestrian Centre, Pepper Lane, Standish, WN6 0PP.
The latest course is running on a Friday at 11am. The course costs £60.
Please note that in order to attend the course you will be asked to check in using the Track and Trace App and have your temperature taken before entering the training area.
Regretfully, if you choose not to follow this protocol we will be unable to invite you and your dog join the recall training course.
Your dog will need a harness (we recommend the Perfect Fit Harness) and a 5 meter training line.
Humans will need to bring lots of tiny, high value treats (cheese / hot dog / chicken / ham) a clicker, a tuggy toy and a ball on a rope. Since we are training outdoors, please dress for the weather and make sure you have good walking boots or wellies to wear.
There are up to 6 dogs in each session. You can join us at any level of recall and we encourage you to do lots of practise in-between each session to get the most from this course. Recall should be trained on every walks and the long line should be used consistently until your dog is reliable if the training is to be effective.
**Please note that there are 3 weekly sessions on this course and once you start the course, the remainder is non-transferable nor refundable.**
