That’s a dramatic headline but it’s true. The Really Reliable Recall™ method has saved the lives of dogs. I hate to think how many dogs have gotten into trouble when running loose and not coming back to the owner when called. Sadly, it happens all the time.
I’ve always thought of it as just one of those things about life and dogs. But it’s less inevitable now.
The method offers you a way to train your dog to come to you immediately, the very first time you call him. It’s actually an easy method to implement; you just have to follow the steps in the 90-minute video. Developed by long-time dog trainer Leslie Nelson, it’s something you really can do!
This DVD explains it all in detail. DVDs are great for learning all sorts of dog training methods, and this one fits that description. In 90 minutes there is time to cover everything you need to know. It includes two special sections:
- How to train dogs of the breeds who are generally considered hard to train
- How dog training instructors can include the Really Reliable Recall in their classes
Of course, you will have to work to get this level of reliability. The steps are easy to follow but will take some time on your part. But what more important behavior to train?
How does it work? You really need to watch the DVD for all the details, but I can tell you one part: you use a different word than “Come.” It’s an emergency word, one you only use for this. You train it so that your dog immediately comes to you.
I was so pleased with the concept of the Really Reliable Recall that I surfed the internet to find out more. I came across several incredibly moving stories. One had me holding my breath. Would the recall really prove reliable as the dog chased a lizard, towards traffic? YES!
This is one dog training DVD that should be widely known!
