This workshop trains the skills needed to help create a really reliable recall in your dog. Having a reliable recall is fundamental if your dog is to ever be off lead. It needs to be immediate, fast and consistent. This course focuses on a number of games to help create a recall that is all of those things. The courses are held outside in securely fenced areas where livestock graze during the day to allow for a more representative environment.

This is a day for both our golden oldies and younger dogs who are on restricted exercise. It teaches a multitude of tricks and behaviours that you can continue to teach your dog at home.
