Recall Training School in Dorset

Are you fed up with your dog not coming back to you when you call them?

The recall training school in Dorset will help get your dog back from other dogs, people and distractions. Many people assume that teaching a recall is a training technique you learn, and the dog obeys.  If only it were that simple, this line of thinking is a key reason most recall training fails.

Most people and some trainers think the recall is all about the dog, and again thinking like this will cause the recall to fail.

When we start approaching this complex subject from the right direction, we can place the jigsaw pieces in the right place.  What I will do is show you the picture first and then show you where the pieces go.

Some training approaches give you the jigsaw pieces, but you never get to see the completed picture, so it is all very confusing, and many never complete the training. We can change that at the Dorset Recall Training School.

Does your dog ignore you when you call them back?

So, what magic trick am I offering which will solve all your recall issues?  Sadly I am not.  There are no shortcuts, magic fixes, and any trainer who makes you think there are will take you down the path of failure.

Recall training is about two different species who don’t speak the same language, have different agendas and see the world around them in a very different way. Is there no wonder many owners stumble and fail? Once we acknowledge these differences and use strategies to overcome them, then we have a fighting chance.

To succeed at this training, I will be asking you to make some lifestyle changes with how you interact, walk and exercise your dog.  I will also be asking you to take a good look at yourself as the owner and the structure you have in place for your dog. Remember, a lack of recall can be a symptom of other issues.

Without these changes, attempting training is a waste of your time and money.  I will discuss these in-depth with you and look at what works for you without affecting what we want to achieve.

You can see from my reviews that many of my clients observe that I spend a lot of time training them and not the dog. This will never be more true than when you commence the recall training programme.

You will need to practice, practice and practice some more.  However, we need the right practice, and that’s my job!!

Dog Recall Intensive Training Programme

The programme will be over a period of time and costs £200. This will be split as follows.

  • Theory and preparation will a 45 minute session via Zoom. 
  • Two 45 min sessions will then take place at my Merley and Purbeck training facility.
  • One session will take place in locations you normally go to.
  • Free text support
  • An essential part of this training will be you ‘proofing’ the training and you will be expected to do this between the training sessions. I will fully explain what this about when i meet you.

We will only move on to the next phase once I think you are both ready.

Will this give you a quick fix guaranteed recall in all distractions? NO!!. It will vastly improve your chances of getting a recall because you will be trained not to put yourself or your dog into situations where the recall will fail. This training teaches you to be proactive rather than reactive and understand your environment almost better than your dog.
