Very often I see dogs coming back to their owners after a day at the park, only to skip away again. The owners, probably in a hurry get angrier and angrier and start shouting, which of course makes the situation worse, giving the dog even more reason not to return, here is how you deal with that.

Recall problems are caused by us, the owners, when we incorrectly led train our dogs. They are taught not to come back by us; by only putting the dog back on the lead at the end of the walk it doesn’t take long for the dog to click on that recall and lead mean end of fun and walk.  Also when we do not properly stimulate our dogs in the park or for a walk recall problems occur

Give your dog’s quality time and quality training. During the walk call your dog back to you at least three or four times. Place it on a lead and reward with a brief game or a real tasty treat, and then let it off again. Your dog will then learn that coming back to you is good news and being placed on the lead does not mean the end of the walk and end of play!
