I had to cut out a lot to make it one minute but I did each recall — extension, collection, back-up recall to heel in 5 foot increments on both the left and the right. You’ll have to take my word for it. Now that we’ve been doing all this for about a month she is becoming more fluent. She tends to flip around in the back up recall to heel, so you will see me bring her to a complete halt before I turn her around.

I hope these are ok, we’ve done a few sessions at a distance (also working his sit stay yay)

Stefanie

Thank you for the feedback!

I went back and worked them again today. I notice on the backup recall he sometimes is not sure which side to go to until he gets closer. Should I go to shorter distances until he starts picking the right side right away or should I try something else?

We’ve been struggling a bit here with coming in straight and then not doing a very good bend. Went back to work more close.

Here’s the Extension Recall with more Difficulty:

Is there a distance we should be working up to? In the book, Linda says at least 20 feet. My basement us only 24 feet long and I have a sloped unfenced yard. I think i need to find a better spot to do these with more distance.

Alisa Healy

Here is Moses at 20 feet in my basement. I wanted to test him here before trying out even more distance. The BURTH recalls are less distance as I didn’t want him to slam into the wall. If you think he’s looking good I’ll try him in a more spacious place.

Alisa Healy

Oh yay!!! Yes, he was skidding just a but on the carpet lol! Even though we were indoors he was still moving with some speed, which I was happy about. Ya, I’m curious how it goes without the wall too! I’ll post another video of him and also film Ruby.

My little bulldozer did better than i expected outside the walls of my basement. I think extension on the right side still needs work, the first one you can see his rear swings out, second one isn’t quite as bad. Please let me know what you see πŸ™‚ I’m really proud of how focused he was in this environment. There is a dog park right next to us and lots of critters around, but he was totally tuned into me πŸ™‚ One question…when we line them up for extension recalls, do we envision the line going straight from our hand… Read more Β»

And here is Ruby:) I should have lowered my left hand more for the last BURTH recall, oops.

Alisa Healy

No worries! I so enjoyed following along with AWC, tons of inspiration πŸ™‚ LOL, yes Ruby is perfect and Moses is a diamond in the rough. He is EXTREMELY dog friendly and his recall isn’t solid enough yet where I trust him in that training location. I’m so glad these are good overall. I have continued to work these almost daily while out on walks on the trails.

@Daisy Peel I have been working on these for a couple of weeks now. These are all taken at 20 – 22 feet.
I have cut out the obvious blooper ones. As you have pointed out to me previously, on the back up recall he wants to pivot rather than bend so we’ve been practicing with a jump wing. I have been gradually moving it further away. I am also working at keeping his head low as he seems to bend better that way.

Sandy Mullis

WOW quick reply πŸ™‚ Winter is a bit of a challenge up here, but most days we can get out. In these videos it wasn’t bad. 40ish temp. I’m fortunate that the agility field has a southwest exposure and it melts off quickly 😎

I appreciate your feedback and your classes. Kit is the first dog I’ve trained where I haven’t had easy access to in person classes and feedback. Closest classes are 80 miles away 😯 Onward…

@Daisy Peel
Lots of difficulty with coming into heel on my left side – we will work more on this at slower speeds. Also he’s not sending for the back up recall – just turning like a boat. I will go back to doing this one against a wall.
