    DefaultRecall!

    I have had a harder time getting Barney going with recall..a little harder than I had with Tal. But today, when we were at the college, I let him sniff around like I usually do, then decided to call him. Whaddya know he came a runnin! You could say it was because I had treats, but his recall was non existant even with treats before. So progress! Gotta keep workin on it!

    BTW, have I mentioned lately how proud I am of these two? I know they love this cold weather, and I don't, but one thing I really like about it is that I can take them with me and let them stay in the car while I go into the store.

    WTG Barney.

    What works with Abbey most of the time is to pretend to run away for a few steps.. then I praise and give a treat. Have you tried that?

    Yeah but I have to be really convincing like I am going to leave. But I didn't do the treat part with that. Good idea! I'll give it a try because no doubt there will be a next time! After all, Barney is almost 1 so he is in full adolescence! But still, not too bad (knocks on wood really hard!)

    Definitely! One of the other things I am working hard on is getting him to leave sticks alone. I keep being afraid one will not be chewed right and Barney will wind up with some kind of internal trauma. Today he begain to see the light with that too...he dropped the stick and came and got his treat. Then I directed his attention to chasing the ball with Tal! I really enjoy the journey in teaching them good things!
