Do you know the title of Leslie Nelson's book? I am at work right now and need to get off here before the boss shows up again.
And would you mind explaining to me some of the other ways to teach an emergency recall?
And yes, if I go the e-collar route it will be hand-in-hand with my trainer cause I don't want to just zap the crap out of my dog.

Hundilein, would you mind me asking what your word for the emergency recall is?
Hundilein wrote:Actually, now that I think about it some more, I have a second recall word, which is "Puppies!", said in a high-pitched, sing song voice. That's what I started using when Renee and Hannah would bark in the yard, so like Erin's "Treats", it was always rewarded. It sort of became an emergency recall without me really thinking about it. It still works though, I used it this morning when Renee was barking at something outside while I was in the shower. I yelled "puppies" and then when I heard her tags jingling towards me, I cracked the door and told her how fabulous she was.
