Reliable Recall. Does your dog "come when called"? Does he sometimes act like he never heard you call? Does he move away from you when called? Would he rather play with his toys or sniff the ground? In this 5-week class learn the steps to developing a reliable recall. Based on Leslie Nelson’s Really Reliable Recall, this class will focus solely on teaching you to teach your dog to come in distracting situations. Pre-requisite is Family Manners 1 or equivalent. If you are unsure about your dog’s readiness for this class, contact Chris at hemlock@nycap.rr.com
