As a trainer, I share with owners that a recall is a must-have life skill as it can come down to a matter of life and death in some situations. We can teach this life skill with kindness and compassion all while making it fun for the dog. This is the MUST HAVE recall book in the industry! -- Annie Phenix, Best-selling Author, Certified Behaviourist, Fear Free Professional, Family Dog Mediator and member of the Pet Professional Guild
This book is fabulous and will be the foundation of our new Recall Class! Very clear criteria to follow.
Teaching a reliable recall is one of the most common requests I receive from pet parents struggling with the challenge of “Fifi Come!”—“Lucky Come!” Lisa’s book makes it easy to understand how to get a great recall using games, pointing to everyday training opportunities, and training around prey. It also contains strategies that seasoned trainers will want to incorporate into their classes and private consultations. In addition, The Original Rocket Recall lays the all-important groundwork in understanding how dogs learn, reading body language, and understanding reinforcement from your dog’s point of view! This book is a valuable addition to my dog library. Linda Michaels, M.A., Psychology Author of The Do No Harm Training and Behavior Handbook Featuring the Hierarchy of Dog Needs
Loved the book. A great book for any dog owner or trainer. It is clear, well-written, and so informative.
