Recall Workshops

Recalls are the most important thing you can teach your dog, not only vital for responsible dog ownership, but makes for happier dogs and owners, the perfect route to stress free walks.

In this workshop we will use fun, motivational and positive methods to engage your dog and build value in the all-important recall.

As well as plenty of practical training we will also discuss the theory of how to build a reliable recall, it will help build your knowledge to understand why certain situations can provoke selective hearing in our dogs, and how to identify and overcome those big distractions.

These workshops are suitable for all ages and breeds of dogs, including puppies who have no recall foundation, or those older dogs who don’t always want to come back.

This Workshop consists of a 1 hour classroom style theory session and a 3 hour practical session

£45.00

Lunch will be provided. This workshop is weather dependant as it is held outdoors.
