Step 7: Outside in yard, off-leash


Step 7 takes place outside in your yard. You can use a quiet and secure off-leash area if you don’t have a yard but let your dog saturate in the smells and sounds to the point of boredom before calling them. Cue your recall, happy talking if necessary, and feed your dog close to your leg. Practice 2-3 times per day for a few days before moving on to Step 8.
