    I would have loved to watch them but I can’t get to see any of these videos here in Germany due to copyright issues with the music.

    Woo hoo – thanks Katarina – more and more hope for me! I did leave out the bikes and joggers 🙂 and in flyball practice – running right past me to the open field for major zoomies. So excited for recallers to start that it seems like waiting for Christmas when you’re young!

      Yeah, one of the first tasks for you to do in Recallers will be to make a list of ALL possible distractions for your dog. I didn’t even know that many existed before:) I got so many ideas to train against movement, all with the help of games. When I came to Recallers 1.0 I said that I don’t see the end of the tunnel:) I was pretty desperate back then:) But my boy is proof that it can be done and the games are not hard for the dog at all. You also learn to gauge your dog’s stress level better, so you can predict the zoomies before they would ever happen. Recallers is not just a Christmas present, it’s a neverending present:)

    Hi Jan, I hope you decide to go for Recallers course, it really is worth every penny when you see the change in your dog. The tug I was using was Kong rubber frisbee. I bought it at a local pet store but there are also many places online where you can buy it. The key for Ruby is variety, so I always carry a backpack full of toys. Good luck with Spoo 🙂

      Thanks so much – I am in and very excited! Have been trying to work on tugging for month’s now and always on the lookout for something interesting for her, so will pick one up. My spoo’s name is Faith (spoo is for standard poodle – I forget that unless you own one (or one owns you)people wonder just what you’re talking about 🙂

        Jan,
        my sheltie was an incredible chaser, motion sensitive over the top. Bikers, people mving, cats, dogs – everything was chase-worthy. He would ‘leave’ in a nanosecond, untangling his head from his leash and roaring on a course where a dog was running, in the middle of a trial! he was also a very poor tugger, very soft, dropped toy immediately. In recallers, we changed that around and used the desire to chase in our advantage. THe games are strategically designed so that dog’s natural desire to chase extends itself on tug game. My dog and I also went to a whole new level with tugging – there is a secion in recallers web page where you can discuss ways of improving the tug game.

        Haha, you got me there – I never heard of spoo before 🙂 Thanks for clarification and good luck with Faith!

    Hi Andreja – your video really gives me hope – my spoo is a big zoomie girl – cats and squirrels and cars 🙁 One question I have is the red tug you used in the video – is there a maker/name for it that you remember and/or where did you purchase?

    All great videos! The first gave me chills seeing such a fun loving whippet going from crazy zoomies to the end clip a great reflection of what so many accomplish with this course! Well done everyone!

    I’m hoping Andrea and Ruby win – beautiful story and how fantastic was Ruby to ignore that unknown dog who wanted to join in on the fun!

      Yeah, that thing with an unknown dog was pretty funny when we were shooting the video. I just wanted to demonstrate one of the games and then this brown lab came right out of the water and got me all wet. Too bad that the camera didn’t catch his owners who came running after him and calling. Quite a comic situation 🙂

    Love the video of Andrea and Ruby! As an owner of 3 whippets this is my biggest fear! And it seems everything is a distraction. Im am happy to see such a well train and attentive whippet! I look forward to recallers 3.0 and hope with time and effort I can accomplish exactly this.

      Hey Kailey, that’s exactly how it was with Ruby – everything was a distraction for him. We sorted out many of those things before Recallers, but only while we were playing. If we were not already in the middle of a game all bets were off.

      Recallers got us the rest of the way to a great recall and took working with distractions to the next level. Looking forward to seeing you in Recallers 3.0 🙂

      Absolutely loved watching the free run in the beautiful snow! What a georgous dog. Great boots too! I always wondered if dogs really wore those things. How’s the recall?
