There is nothing more frustrating than a dog who doesn’t come when called.
- It’s a safety hazard
- They need to be leashed ALWAYS
- It’s frustrating
Come to our workshop and learn several techniques for teaching YOUR dog to come when he is called, RELIABLY!
This workshop will be held in an outdoor training field in Southbridge.
- There are no bathroom facilities at the training field.
- We advise that you bring bug spray.
- There is no shade, so please be prepared to keep your car cool with shade cloth, a/c or other.
- Feel free to bring an EZ up tent if you want.
- Rain date TBD, if necessary.
Things to bring:
- Dogs should be wearing a collar or harness. No slip or choke collars please, and no head collars. If your dog wears a prong collar for control, please have an additional harness or flat collar for the recall work.
- TONS of your dog’s favorite treats. Suggested items include: packaged treats, people food like cheese, steak, chicken or other left overs. Bring a large amount and several varieties of awesome food. We will be working in a field and there will be no treats or food available for sale if you run out.
- A way to manage your treats – ie., training kilt, treat pouch, training vest. Pockets will be inadequate and you won’t be able to work out of a zip lock baggie.
- Your dog’s favorite toys. (more than one)
- Regular 6 ft leash that you walk your dog on. NO RETRACTABLE LEASHES. We won’t have available spare leashes at the field, anyone with a retractable leash will not be able to work their dog.
- Long leash (not a retractable). Minimum 20 ft, longer is welcome.
- A whistle if you want to teach your dog a whistle recall.
- A sense of humor
If you will need help with your dog’s gear, please contact us and arrange to arrive early.
No Reactive Dogs – Dogs must be friendly toward other dogs and people
Dogs should know their own name and respond reliably to it
