Training an emergency recall

Are you prepared for the unexpected?

Imagine going on an off-leash hike and suddenly seeing your dog approaching dangerous wildlife, or playing off-leash at a park and witnessing an encounter with another dog that compromises your dog’s safety.

Having an emergency recall is essential, and if you don’t have one yet for your dog, there is no better time to get that new skill.

With the help of trainer Saundra Clow we’ve created a guide with easy-to-follow steps for training an emergency recall.
