How to fix a broken recall

Free 5-Day Recall Challenge


“I’m at a loss to know what I can do because she runs off, so far, she’s never been gone for more than 10 minutes at most, but it’s worrying… I know that rehearsing misdemeanours is bad -  it would mean the absolute world to me to have a dog which came back when I called.”



As a dog trainer, I realised that not only was recall the number one goal for so many people I worked with, but it is also the behaviour that can have the most impact on enjoying life with your dog.

So, I created the Free 5-Day Recall Challenge with the intention to guide you through establishing good foundations to kick off your training journey.

Each day, you’ll receive a daily email with a video link and useful information.

The tasks won’t take you more than a few minutes each day and guide you through my winning formula to help you teach a recall whistle or power up your existing cue.

Head to this page of the website to enrol on The FREE 5-Day Challenge which shows how you can train your dog to come back every time by introducing some simple, and fun training games to practice it.
