    Default My favourite recall training article

    I was looking for some easy resources for a friend who just got a young and very excitable rescue dog. And I remembered how much this article helped me when I was preparing to train my new dog. It is very short and to the point but mentions all the important criteria for successful recall training. And I remember that the '$100 bet' and hamburger hidden in the tree were real eye openers for me at the time.

    The First Steps to Teaching a Reliable Recall: Kathy Sdao - Bright Spot Dog Training

    Banjo's recall is pretty solid! It only doesn't pass the cat chasing test. Yet.

    And now I'm looking for resources, can anyone recommend any on LAT training? I can explain and demonstrate it to her, but I always find it helps me to read about these things.

    Hi Beloz, I've just bought and started reading Leslie McDevitt's Control Unleashed, it's good, easy to read, there are some really good YouTube clips of her too and lots of stuff to look at from other people's experiences from googling Control Unleashed. She trains for LAT with clicker training.

    Maybe a look at Susan Garrett, if you sign up you can receive video clips to watch, really interesting too. She has online courses, think they cost quite a bit but lots of stuff on her website.

    I'm off to look at the link you posted for Kathy Sdao.... Ta

    I met the dog today and she isn't as bad as they had told me. So LAT might not be as important to them as I thought.

    I've been wanting to buy Control Unleashed for myself. Just a bit of a cash flow problem atm.

    Not that I would like to be an enabler - but cleanrun has 'Control Unleashed' on its free shipping. ( As of 2 seconds ago !!! )

    I got control unleashed off clean run too - and they have the puppy version and the dvd all free shipping (from the store - click on what ships free from the right hand menu - and change the options to list all not 12 per page).

    And I got the go dragon with chew guard and a squeaker - which has survived some initial encounters with evil hound and her friend the piggy princess bull terrier. But we don't think it would last long in a game of tug or left alone for longer than a couple of minutes with the BT. And I got the racoon tuggits - which my dog has tried plucking but are working great as a placed reward on the agility course - cos I can stick food in it. Which stops the victory lap (along with the attached horse lead).

    Apparently the batch of isqueaks they have are duds. But if your dog likes wubbas - they're really cheap from OS with free shipping. And they have the sensible front attach harness for about half the price you get it here.

    sorry for being OT but wish I'd known about the isqueaks being duds! I've ordered one in my last cleanrun order
