Recall trainng

Evening all. I've added a couple of new pictures to the blog and now Poppy doesn't get in the basket and wet in it I can add some more padding to it. The other photo is when hubby took them over the field last Saturday.He only managed a couple of pics as Poppy just wanted to run round in circles. For the last couple of days I've taken the girls out separately, Saffy for her long walk and Poppy so I can start some recall work and a shorter walk. When we get over the field it seems a bit daunting for Poppy so she doesn't seem to want to go too far from me, which is good, and with a lot of help from some cocktail sausages she comes back rather well. I think she has mastered the "sit" now and so far with no distractions and a fair wind behind us she returns well, see what happens when there are other people and dogs about. I now want to move on and have a go at the "down" command. I think she seems to be geting the hang of the house training now as she runs to the back door when she wants to go out,but this also applies when she wants to chase the birds. As she makes the effort to go out we now have to keep an eye out for that. If I want her to go in the garden she just sits in the lounge and stares at me. The girls are getting on well but I think Poppy can play a bit rough with Saffron. Bye, Linda x

  1. Awwwwwwwwww, Poppy is just so sweet. Good Luck with the recall training, still an on-going thing with Alfie, I'd say it was about 90% now but we did have to train an 18mth old with no previous training or socialisation.

    Perhaps you could adopt another one for Poppy to play with LOL *ducks*
