Mastering Recall: Teach Your Dog to Come When Called with Fetch!

Teaching your dog recall - the ability to come when called - is one of the most important skills your furry friend can learn. Not only does it contribute to their safety, but it also helps strengthen your bond with them. One fun and effective way to start teaching recall is by playing fetch with their favorite dog toy. In this blog post, we'll guide you through this process and highlight how LovelyPup's range of dog toys can aid in this training.

Why Is Recall Important?

Recall is crucial for your dog's safety. Whether you're at a park, on a hike, or even in your backyard, being able to call your dog back to you can prevent them from running into dangerous situations1. It also gives them more freedom to explore, knowing they'll return when called.

Training Recall with Fetch

Fetch is a fantastic game that most dogs love. It involves their favourite thing (a toy!) and combines it with exercise and interaction with you. Here's how you can incorporate recall training into a game of fetch:

  1. Start with a toy your dog loves: The first step is to choose a toy that your dog loves. This could be a squeaky toy, a ball, or a plush toy. LovelyPup stocks a variety of dog toys that can make the game of fetch exciting for your dog.

  2. Get your dog's attention: Call your dog's name to get their attention. Once you have it, throw the toy a short distance away2.

  3. Call your dog back: As your dog goes after the toy, call them back to you. Use a word like "Come" or a whistle3. Make sure to use a cheerful, encouraging tone.

  4. Reward your dog: When your dog returns to you with the toy, reward them with lots of praise and petting4. This positive reinforcement will make them more likely to come when called in the future.

  5. Repeat: Practice makes perfect! The more you repeat this game, the better your dog will become at recall5.
