FOWC with Fandango — Recall

One thing I remember from my dog psychology course was that in order for recall to work, the dog has to want to be with you.
Hubby did all the training as I was at work and all he wanted was that should he call her, she came back or would stop on command and thus he could keep her safe.
Most of the work was off lead, so signals were used too. This has obviously paid off now that her hearing is going, and she still responds to them. The problem is getting her attention to SEE them in the first place!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Aw – yes it is hard with a deaf dog, but you work wonders with Maggie. 🙂
