Puppy Recall – Teaching Come – Kent & Jed

Starting the recall (teaching come) for the first time. Using a long line to give the puppy the illusion of freedom. This puppy (Jed) is a 15 week old vizsla male and a real cutie. This is his 3rd puppy training lesson, and second obedience training lesson. Our goal is a happy reliable of leash dog. Looks like he is getting the idea!

Apologies for the poor camera work, this was the first time I tried moving and filming at the same time. Guess I need some practice on that.

    @oscarlovesfrancine Since I don't know you or your dog, I really can't comment on your training method. I train my dogs to be offleash reliable under extremely distracting situations such as wildlife, aggressive dogs, found food, etc.To find a trainer who can help you in your area go google the International Association of Canine Professionals. Great group of dog pros with practical, relevant credentials. Good luck!

    I have a 6 month vizsla who's recall is pretty good, about 95% off leash on a trail and maybe 60% at the dog park.

    We used treats as a reinforcer and still do at home or on the trail (intermittently). At the dog park when he comes, I usually run and give him a toy.

    We stopped doing off leash because I was scared if he came across a coyote he wouldn't listen to me. At this point is a long line a good idea for getting him to come even when other dogs or a possible coyote is more exciting?
