Your dog coming back to you when you call their name is the single most important piece of training you need to do for yours and your dogs safety.
Ask yourself, if I call my dog once will they return quickly and immediately? If not, not only are you putting your dog at risk of injury, you may be in breach of the Dog Act 1871 which applies to all breeds and requires all dogs to be under control. Furthermore, not all other dogs are friendly! Some may be dangerous and other may be extremely nervous. A solid recall will get you out of sticky situations at the dog park. If your dog doesn’t come back yet, we recommend keeping them on lead or a long line until you’ve overcome this hurdle. We can help with this important piece of the puzzle to make your walks more enjoyable and safe for yourself, your dog, and other dogs in the park.
