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!
