    Default High Value Treats

    I decided that I really need to step up the recall training as we've had a few booboos in high distraction situations.

    So today I took the usual liver treats and 3 big pieces of cooked steak from last night's dinner.

    Very soon after we got out of the car I had an opportunity to do a pretty high distraction recall. When she came to me I exitedly handed her a big piece of steak. She took it, spat it out and looked up at me as if to say "What the hell was that?". I had to give her a normal liver treat after that.

    But after our half hour walk when we got close to the car, she suddenly raced off towards where the car was parked. I considered calling her back, but I wanted to see what she was doing, so I let her go. Turns out she was trying to find the piece of steak! And I imagined her thinking that whole walk "How stupid am I, that was STEAK!" I don't know if she actually found it.

    I am doing the recall in our backyard at the moment.
    I have been slack of late though no real good reason.
    Just being lazy would have to be the right answer here.
    My back yard is quite long so I can do a decent recall. As Murphy has to get up a run on the recall at home.
    I just use the boiled sausage that I cut up and he is happy to work for them.

    I normally use cooked liver. But I needed to get something more attractive for recalls with the high distractions. I discovered that for Banjo those are galahs and if there is a group of dogs.

    Though for now I've been giving her the steak for recalls when she's wanting to follow or go towards a single dog. For the other distractions I will need to use a long lead.

    She did take the steak without hesitating this evening.

    My ultra super dooper wow rewards are raw beef or lamb or roo, tinned sardines, and chicken necks/wings. Sure are messy but they seem to get a crazy instinctual reaction! My girl's eyes were the size of dinner plates when she first got a whole chicken wing for one nice recall
