Step 12: In park, more dogs during play


For Step 12, have your dog at an off-leash park where more than 2 dogs are present. When your dog is running and playing with a group of dogs, cue your recall. Happy talk, if necessary, and feed your dog close to your leg. Throw a party with lots of treats and praise the first time your dog succeeds. Do this 2-3 times per visit and when your dog least expects it. This is an expensive behaviour for your dog. You will lose it if you don’t pay them well and often.
