I thought we had just lost the dog! Was doing some training while the dinner was cooking and he kids watching deal or no deal (don't ask! They love it). I was working with him and not running out the front when i open the front door. so we have him sitting on his bed, coming to the door when called, following me too and from the letter box.... all perfect, as long as another dog doesn't bark! Then his ears go up and he is off to find said dog, over the wall around the front yard! I shouted "Boss NO! Come!" and he came back!!! Good Dog!!! So he does have a good recall! I wasn't game enough to try it! LOL Woot for my good training! I rock!
I went out again after that with him in the front yard and played, and whistled when i wanted him to come in and he came straight in! i had to check if it was a fluke! haha
