EFFECTIVE RECALL WORKSHOP
2h, 10 working spots
Does your dog have selective hearing? Does it take ages before your dog eventually comes back to you - if at all?
If your answer is YES to the above, this workshop is for you!
The recall is one of the most important tools we need as dog owners. Having an effective recall can be a life saver for your dog in any environment. The Effective Recall workshop will give you a number of techniques to polish up your dog's recall and test its effectiveness against a number of different distractions such as food, toys, and when they’re ready, other dogs! Teaching your dog recall is lots of fun and they will see it as a great new game they can play with you!
• Identifying what your dog loves so it can be used as a reward. This may not necessarily be food!
• Understanding arousal levels in our dogs and identifying when they are too aroused to respond.
• Learn techniques to reduce their arousal and therefore increase their ability to respond to the recall cue.
• Basic body language to help identify what they are feeling
• Hand touch
• Fun recall games
• Retrieve game to help get your dog back
• Chase game
CANINE GOOD NEIGHBOUR
The Canine Good Neighbour Program is a 12-step test, that when completed successfully, will ensure that one of our most favoured companions, the dog, is accepted as a valued member of our communities right across the country. Canine Good Neighbours can be counted on to present good manners at home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs.
The test is non-competitive and allows dog and handler to demonstrate confidence and control in 12 steps. It assesses the handler and dog's relationship, together with the handler's ability to control the dog. Dogs are evaluated on their ability to perform basic exercises as well as their ability to demonstrate good manners in everyday situations.
The 12 Steps:
Accepting A Friendly Stranger
Politely Accepts Petting
Appearance and Grooming
Out For A Walk
Walking Through A Crowd
Sit/Down On Command and Stay In Place
Come When Called
Reaction To A Passing Dog
Reaction To Distractions
