Going to give it a try!!! Thanks Dave!

I am going to start a new thread on training treats...I am going to have to put a collar on mine for the training too..wonder if I should leave the collar on, or put it on for training. I.E., will the dog associate putting the collar on with the training? The only time mine wear the collar now is when they go for a walk. Don't know if there is a soft collar, small that won't mat the coat so much? I want the dog to come to me without the collar too...too many questions, sorry!!

If you don't usually have a collar on your dog, you have to find something different from a "collar grab". The point is for your dog to KNOW you are restraining them, then letting them go. With Kodi, since he doesn't ever wear a collar on the property, I grab the hair at the back of his neck, just enough so that he knows I'm holding him, before patting him and releasing him again.

The other problem with coated dogs is that even if you DO have a collar on them, it's not always easy to grab. The coat, itself, is often easier.

Dizzie and Nellie,both know when a walk has come to the end,the routine is they jump up on to a bench[if there is one so, I don't have to bend down!]and I pop on the leashes, then they get a treat,and home we go!!

I am not adept at threads, etc. and so I cannot figure how to reach the next part of the article on recall training--I want to read the training methods for weeks 3 and 4. Do I get to do that by registering on Dogster?
