Recall Rules

1. Never call your dog for anything unpleasant​ .​ 
2. Never call your dog if you are not sure he will come​ .​ All recalls should be successful recalls. 
3. If you call your dog and s/he doesn’t come, you must make it happen​ .​ Run over to him and put a treat/toy in front of his nose, backing up as you get his attention so he follows you.
4. Never repeat the cue.​ Resist the urge! Call once and, if necessary, use rule 3. Make the recall happen humanely!
5. Recall = Reward EVERY TIME. ​ If you want your dog to stop whatever interesting doggie thing he is doing and come running to you, make it worth his while. Use extra yummy treats— tasty treat, a toy, a game, something the dog enjoys, and EVERY time. There is no cue that is more important - make sure you make it the most rewarding behavior your dog knows.
