Of course, it's not just the owner of 'Fenton' from the infamous YouTube clip of the Labrador chasing deer in Richmond Park; many dog owners struggle to manage their dogs, and the vast majority of people who need help have one simple but overwhelming problem: their dog won't come back when they call him or her. An international bestseller, this book is divided into three parts: 1. Preparation: all the information you'll ever need in order to prepare and support yourself and your dog as you work through the training programme, including information on how your dog learns, practical training with rewards and beyond training. 2. A detailed Recall Training Programme complete with exercises to work through. In other words, the 'hot to' section of the book where you'll learn puppy recall; pre-recall for older dogs; basic recall; on location training and ultimately recall for life. 3. The problem solving section, where you can discover why you got into difficulties in the past and learn how to avoid making the same mistakes again in the future. Enjoy your training journey, improve your relationship and have fun with your dog!
