Save your little one...whistle!
Davetgabby...believe that is his name...posted on the forum....a link to training your dog to a whistle recall. I have sent him a message asking him to post it again.
Wanted to do this because I did what they suggested and am absolutely astounded. Within 2/3 days, at approx. 10 minutes a day, Izzy stops whatever or wherever she is and comes bounding to me. I have hidden in the house went out side when she was in (she has a doggie door) and this dog leaps up and runs to me. It took a lot of nerve, but my DH went into the woods and dropped her lead, I was approx. 1/2 a block away...and she came flying.
I could'nt believe how fast this happened...followed the instructions religiously...but it didn't take that long. Needless to say a whistle hangs by our door and is always around our neck or in our pocket when we take her out.
Really, try it, it works and may save your precious fur pup someday.
A big thank you to Dave.
Have a good day ..... Estelle and Izzy
