Total Recalltest

This 3-week (only 3 classes, so coming to all three is very important!!!) workshop will focus on two main behaviors: wait and come. We will explore why our dogs don’t come when called, how to change their behavior from “Maybe I will, maybe I won’t,” to “I cannot wait until you call me so I can come running!” We will explore strategies to change our relationship and our behavior to ensure this is our dog’s favorite trick, and discuss some common mistakes we all make that cause our dogs to not come when called.
