A wonderful walk in the New Forest today practising “recall” on a long line. This gives extra security during training so that you can gently encourage your dog to come back to you should he/she decide not to! When dogs first came into my care at Ringwood Dogs, I always put them on a long line like above. This gives me the opportunity to practise the Recall, so that when it’s finally time to let the dog off leash, I can be confident he/she will come back when called. A long line also gives more control when training appropriate play amongst dogs, allowing me to redirect and control unwanted behaviour.

I look forward to meeting you and working with your dogs.
Happy dog training.
