In this week’s PawTube – a PawzNRead initiative focused on canine health and wellbeing – we discussed the importance of reliable recall. We spoke with Dubai-based trainer Mena Lopez who runs dog behaviour and training endeavour called Ginger’s Way. We discussed the importance of training your dog to come to you when called despite all distractions and excitement.
Here’s what we discussed:
A brief background about Ginger and how Ginger’s Way started.
At some point we’ve all seen that person in the park who yells at their dog to come back but the dog doesn’t. As challenging as it can be how important is it to teach a dog recall and what are some important things to remember?
Some empathy-based force free techniques to teach our dogs the art of recall through fun recall centric games.
What are some common mistakes that humans make while training their dogs the art of recall and how can these be avoided?
Regardless of how strong your dog’s recall is, it’s important to respect local pet related laws and know when to leash your dogs.
Mena also shared three recall training tips that pet parents can practice.
